Re: my Miev will not charge

Hey Joe, I have to admit when the car didn't charge I started getting nervous and that probably led to the rapid switching of the key to tray and stat it. The only other variable was that it was about 10-15 minutes before I mentioned it to my wife and showed her the problem and then she tried and it...

Re: my Miev will not charge

Unplugged and re-plugged many times still no charge. Then I went into the car and tried to start it. Could not get the ready light. Again many a...

Re: New member needs commute distance help please!

Hey NikoV6, A 55 Mile round trip commute is a bit of a stretch in an Imiev. You have only one thing going for you and that is the low ave speed of 37 MPH. That will make it very easily possible in the summer. I would like to be encouraging but I think this would be difficult in winter. As Joe said t...

Re: Service, Diagnostic Troubleshooting and Repair, MUT 3

Hey Joe, I am able to change the speedo and the RR from MPH to KMpH and from mile to KM with the long press of the switching button. This is fine but the ODO and the A/B trip meters are always in Miles no matter what I do. I thought this was set up some where in one of the internal computers. I'll h...

Re: Extra battery connection

Have a look at this video link. This guy did something similar with his leaf. Similar problem.

I think he blew the precharge resistor. Not sure if this is the case for your car but maybe it will give you some ideas.
