Re: Replace Low Beam (H11) Head Light Bulbs

kaiseiken, thank you very much for posting these details. I'm sure many of us will eventually have to go through this ourselves.

Re: my Miev will not charge

So after being pretty dirty that the charger I got as a recall replacement only lasted 18 months in service, I got a phone call yesterday from the local dealer. They've done a clean out of their storage and discovered my original 2010 charger unit! They were going to throw it out, so now I have spa...

Re: What Other EV's Have You Driven?

My Pap bought a C-Max Energi, and after test driving it, the Energi is everything we want in the C-Max Hybrid (stronger/longer lasting regen and more electric power). They are averaging 70 MPG with only home charging... So, recognizing the expansion of CCS availability, now that your parents have o...

Re: i-MiEV Cuts Out After Hitting Bump

Thank you all for your suggestions. So, my friend cleaned up the 12v battery terminals and reseated all the fuses and removed a bunch of junk off his wife's keychain and we'll see what happens before proceeding with phb10186's suggestions ... so far, no news is good news.

Re: i-MiEV Cuts Out After Hitting Bump

sandange, thank you, and I've passed it on. If my friend doesn't have any success I'll probably hop into the Tesla and go down there and play with it... after first contacting the previous owner just in case it had been an issue in the past.

Re: i-MiEV Cuts Out After Hitting Bump

PV1, thanks for reminding me about the fuses. I've also offered to swap cars with them so I can troubleshoot at home ... dang, I just checked, still not enough CHAdeMO stations to take a direct route to SoCal (but looks like I could do it going down Highway 99). Those ElectrifyAmerica stations are s...

i-MiEV Cuts Out After Hitting Bump

Last summer a good friend of mine in Los Angeles bought a 2012 i-MiEV (with replacement pack) after visiting us. His wife glommed onto it and loves it! Recently, she has had three instances of going over speed bumps and the car cut out on her. She had no problem pulling over and restarting the car a...

Re: i-Miev Battery Cell Testing

Gary 12345, unlike LiFePO4, our cell chemistry is such that voltage fairly well reflects State of Charge and doesn't sag, I think you'd simply measure one of the other cell's voltage and simply charge the replacement to match.

Re: Managing private messages in this forum?

acensor, I finally got back online as we've been having some 'interesting' weather and lots of downed trees and power outages. I personally welcome all these violent storms and all the rain they finally bring. Love razzing my friends that my electric car is powering my house (even though it's just a...

Thanks for this. I must have missed it, but where's the fan?
