Re: Is my battery dying ?

I wouldn't see any issue using LEV50N as a replacement for LEV50 if that is what you can find. Testing the replacement cells first is a must though as its quite a bit of work taking the pack out. Testing can be done with a fairly high power RC charger, or any decent RC charger and a separate battery...

Re: BMU Wanted. Battery pack 14.5kWh

Hi, That is an interesting component - if that were a 16Kwh battery pack then the circuit board in that location is a ground fault indicator circuit. I'm not totally sure if it does the same job in a 14.5Kwh battery pack as it looks a bit different but most likely it is the same thing. it is worth c...

Re: Single LEV50-cell wanted for our Citroen C-Zero

If anyone is in need, i will shortly have some i-miev cells available. Just waiting for delivery of an 8-cell module and all i need from it is a component from the circuit board on top of the pack.

Thanks.

Re: replace 8 pack cells and bms

Hi,

Were the batteries actually 0v or did they actually have charge but the CMU (circuit board on the battery module) reported 0v to the battery ECU?

Some people have had issues with the voltage monitoring chip on the CMU, and have had this replaced with a new chip.

Thanks,

Gary.

Re: Both of my Peugeot Ion's won't charge

Hi,

What circuit board is it that needs repairing?

I'd recommend talking to these guys, very knowledgeable on the imiev/ion/c-zero and they have repaired circuit boards in the past.

OVS Hybrid and Electric Car Repairs (they are on Google or Facebook)

Thanks,

Gary.

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

Hi guys, Just to add, I am also experiencing fluctuating voltage readings on one battery pack and it is also CMU 10 ! Is there something about the placement of module 10 which causes this issue? And did you guys ever manage to fix the circuit board? I have not yet got the board out to inspect so I d...

Re: Battery Capacity Testing

Hi Simon, I'm awaiting delivery of an 8-cell module, as long as the cells are good then i'll be selling most of them as I dont need them. There is also a guy on ebay UK who sells them and someone in europe on facebook who strips down EV batteries and sells the cells (not on the sea shore...). Thanks...

Re: i-Miev Battery Cell Testing

The 10 year / 100k warranty only applied to the first owner, subsequent owners I believe it is 5 years, either way i'm 100% sure its out of warranty !

Re: Both of my Peugeot Ion's won't charge

Hi just wondering how you got on with this? I'm awaiting arrival of a broken i-miev which i'm going to attempt to fix - as far as I can tell it is purely a low cell so I *should* be able to get this one up and running, but i'm always up for helping someone else get their car going. I've built and re...
