Re: not charging my iON, cell or CMU or BMU problems

No 'kicking off'; there's a specific MUT3 app routine to do it (detailed on the SPeakEV thread, https://www.speakev.com/threads/i-miev-with-failing-battery-another-cmu-ltc-chip-failure.144620/page-3#post-2829628 ). Unfortunately, it does not appear to have helped 100% in my case as it appears the ve...

Re: not charging my iON, cell or CMU or BMU problems

I appear today to have confirmed that the MUT3 can renumber CMU BMS PCBs but I have yet to put the car back together again sufficiently to confirm (by seeing if it charges and runs - albeit with the battery still only temporarily attached). Please see https://www.speakev.com/threads/i-miev-with-fail...

Re: not charging my iON, cell or CMU or BMU problems

Hi all, Just reading this thread as I'm about to open my battery box after successfully removing it from my 2009 i-MiEV following what appears to be another CMU LTC chip failure (see https://www.speakev.com/threads/i-miev-with-failing-battery-another-cmu-ltc-chip-failure.144620/page-2#post-2828186)....

Re: Another i-MiEV Battery Pack Failing...? Help!

Hi All,

I hope this isn't going to put anyone's nose out of joint but I'm moving my tale of woe to speakev due to the very obvious parallels with another thread there... https://www.speakev.com/threads/c-zero- ... 750/page-1. Hopefully see you all there.

Re: EU i-MiEV Clones (iOn C-Zero) - Cheap Front Wiper Blade

Hi Luddite,

Sorry - only just seen your post.

The wiper I used is still going strong albeit the car is now owned by a neighbour (who now has 3 i-MiEVs here on the island we all live on - and I have a broken one too now... but that's another story). MW

Re: Another i-MiEV Battery Pack Failing...? Help!

Hi Simon, Thanks for all that. I have already bought 2 cells and a BMS PCB from 2ndlife and they are sitting on the floor staring at me (and have been for the last 7 weeks... ). A coule of questions... 1/ How is the 'cell smoothing' thing done (via the MUT, I assume?)? 2/ Is it likely that leaving t...

Re: Another i-MiEV Battery Pack Failing...? Help!

Hi Kiev, Thank you for taking the time to reply. Robert's thread has made for a most interesting read - a bit like an electric detective novel! Yes, I installed a brand new, fully charged 12V aux battery just before performing this MUT3 analysis - the old one was definitely dead. Qs... 1/ Will the v...

Another i-MiEV Battery Pack Failing...? Help!

Hi All, I recently acquired a Mitsubishi i-MiEV, first UK-registered in 2009 and one of the first to arrive here (apparently). It was originally red and white but was wrapped in SSE's green wind turbine logo thing (SSE is a large electricity generator/distributor in the UK). It also has a 'dumb' cha...
