Re: Check engine light on

Bought a scanner and pulled codes: u2821 c2584 p0000. Tried to erase got an "erase fail"

My table does not list these codes. Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Using I Miev for backup power unit

Well we are going to find out what this big battery/little battery setup can do. I may put a second lead acid battery in parallel with the car's 12v battery to provide for some surge demand but in the final analysis the average draw has to be under 80A at 12V otherwise the dc to dc transformer won't...

Re: Check engine light on

I am not familiar with that device/software but it sounds like something I should have as there is no dealer in the Abacos.

Re: Check engine light on

Batty went flat because vehicle stood for 3 months at vacation home. Next time I will disconnect or leave on trickle charge. Is there no way to reset?

Check engine light on

12v battery went dead. Jumped it and left key in ready for 30 mins. Then completed charging with ext charger. That all went fine. Plugged main charger in and in a mental slip turned key to on then to ready. Check engine light (stop car and call dealer light came on). Switched key off and completed c...

Re: Using I Miev for backup power unit

My inverter will support 3000W continuous, 9000W for 20 seconds. It is also a solar controller so I could do the solar trickle thing (which would also recharge the IMieV 12v battery if the ignition was off) but realistically that only makes sense if you are using solar power all the time. Using the ...

Re: Using I Miev for backup power unit

I figure as long as I stay below the current limit on the on-board DC converter (I believe it's 80A), I can tap the car's 12V battery to power emergency circuits in the house. This yields about 1000W I think. Small surges should be possible as the battery will support several hundred amp load for sh...

Re: Using I Miev for backup power unit

Using this in Bahamas for backup only... the power goes out a lot and I need to keep fridge, TV, water pump and some lights (all on a separate emergency panel) on for up to five days ... and you can't sell power back to the grid in that country so no point in gearing up for that. At some point I wou...

Re: Using I Miev for backup power unit

Mitsubishi says they are working on a US version of the powerbox, or at least trying to figure out whether there is any demand for it. Meanwhile I am going to try to draw up to 1000W through the 12V circuit (hook up to the 12V battery) and see how well that works.
