Re: Climate control confusion. Range projected drops when fa

acensor- I frequently use the "MAX" with Green Dot button selected and No A/C turned on. It doesn't seem to effect my RR at all. It's actually kind of nice to fire it up when I first get in the car, just to flush some of the hot air out. Even when i'm using the A/C it doesn't effect my RR...

Re: I am selling mine 2 months old iMiev original charger

Camiev, to answer your question about our battery versus the Leaf. I chose the i-MiEV because it uses Lithium Iron Phosphate Safer, longer life, much more tolerant of environmental issues like heat and cold. I'm pretty sure the Leaf uses Lithium Cobalt . Fantastic stuff, but I have questions about i...

Re: Maintenance Costs

Youch. That's excessive.

Re: My second IMIEV does not make the normal fan noise.

Yes, my non-CHAdeMO ES cycles the fan for a few seconds on plug-in to any make of EVSE, L1 or L2. I'd have to double- check with a quick disconnect/reconnect, but I'm pretty sure that the fan comes on with every connection, no matter how high the State of Charge or low the battery temperature.. :sh...

Re: My second IMIEV does not make the normal fan noise.

Let's check with others. No CHadeMO here. I do not hear a quick "Whoosh" of a fan when connecting to L1 or L2 charger. I do hear the cooling pump for the onboard charger run from time to time. I HAVE heard the fan "whoosh" when stopped on a hot day at a stop light. So I do have ...

Re: Heater and Remote

Hi SteveB. AC won't start with a door open either. However, once it's going, you can open a door and it keeps going. I was working in my garage and wanted to cool it off a bit, so i started up the AC with the windows down (it will let you do that) then opened the back lift gate. I'm sure it wasn't a...

Re: Unusual sound from underside of car

My Subaru does this as well. I can hear the THUNK of the ABS test shortly after i start rolling. Also, if you want to hear the fake "engine" noise/pedestrian warning noise while the car isn't moving, there is a little trick I discovered: Start car, put it in Neutral, pull on the Parking/E-...
