Dead Onboard Charger in Portugal

I opened up this new thread for footswitch as these posts had been in the charger cooling thread. Footswitch, very awkward situation for you, as Mitsubishi's prices for the onboard chargers are atrocious. I'm hoping that kiev and his team will continue their progress in repairing the darn things, an...

Re: 1,193 mile i-Miev trip finished!

Wonderful! ... and didn't you have a heat wave during that trip? Have you written up this trip anywhere? What was your percentage of DCFC, Level 2, and Level 1 charging? Surprised about ChargePoint, and EVgo has always had reliable hardware (for me) and their revised rate structure makes them now ve...

Re: help with used purchase

paxfamilia, I just sent you a PM. One word of caution: just because there is a small access door on the driver's side of the car on the aft rear quarter, doesn't mean it has DCQC. There are two ways to tell if an i-MiEV has CHAdeMO: 1. There is a small lever on the left side at the bottom of the dri...

Re: help with used purchase

Hello paxfamilia - you came to the right place to get some information about the i-MiEV. Sorry your test drive was a bit of a disappointment - I hope the tire pressure was correct (36psi, although many of us go a bit higher), as that also makes a difference in how the car handles. A strong Kansas cr...

Iced at the Public Charging Station (Canadian Version)

Since we have quite a few Canadian members on our i-MiEV forum, I couldn't resist porting over this post from the Hyundai Kona EV forum, courtesy of that forum's member Electric Eddy -

Re: A New Tire For Us!

What's a rainstorm? :? In a couple of months I'll put one of my windshield wipers back on. ;) My relatively-new Blizzaks will do for now, awaiting that white fluffy stuff that hasn't been seen here since around1974. I'm older (but not necessarily wiser) and gone are the days when I crossed no-speed-...

Re: Viper remote start successfully installed.

The Viper actually has a low voltage start mode with programmable set point. So it could be set that when voltage of the 12v system drops too low, it will put the car in Ready for a pre-programmed amount of time. Assuming the car isn't plugged in. Interesting that this capability even exists, espec...

Yeah, but at a quarter of the price of an OEM tire I'm willing to make some sacrifices. :roll:

Re: RR in kilometres

Kalosha, you're right: it looks like a bug in the system, but it is documented on page 3-60 of the Owner's Manual: "The display unit for the cruising range will change to match the selected speedometer's display unit... Even if speedometer's display unit is changed, the display units for the od...

Re: Eliminating Mitsu's Onboard Charger/DC-DC Converter

charliejuliett, no worries about the forum etiquette - I've been a worse transgressor in the past. Glad I found your post update by accident. 1. The 36A output should be fine for most applications and I might add not to run more than one window motor at a time. 2. I'm interested in some details of y...
