Re: help locating a used on board charger

Thanks Jray. It feels good to have it back on the road.

It was B&R in tacoma. I’m glad you got to it. It seemed unlikely that they would not salvage it before crushing. Is that the inverter you used?

I’m hoping that the new inverter design was to make it more robust.

Quick help with charger replacement please

This is the high voltage cable from the charger to the MCU . Is this silver sheathing important?

So I have the "new" charger from a wrecked 2013. So of course I popped it open and here is what the inside looks like https://i.imgur.com/uVCvXrQ.jpg Two of the four connectors are the same and I'm hoping that the other two connections can be made to fit. The black connector in this image ...

Re: help locating a used on board charger

Kiev, my new charger has a connector like this.

It plugs directly into the side of the newer style MCU from the 2013 and later cars. I assume Because it’s just power It should be compatible And i just need to connect it somehow. Does that sound reasonable?

Re: help locating a used on board charger

Kiev, I’m hoping that with all the tracing you’ve been doing you can tell me what these orange cables do? https://imgur.com/a/OMz4v4I? They connect to the ECU in my 2012. The updated 2013 charger and ECU look different and have a different connector. My “new” charger has this different connector but...
