Re: iMiev.. my biggest mistake ever

Plankton, What happened to the compressor? They're telling me it has an internal short which causes the entire car to shut down Can they disconnect the AC compressor so that you can still run the car? There are two connectors to the AC compressor. Connector A-111 is three wires; 12V dc from a fuse,...

Re: iMiev.. my biggest mistake ever

Yes. Mitsubishi's price for replacing your AC compressor is ridiculous, and Mitsubishi should be ashamed to charge so much to replace a part that fails after three years. I looked up the part number 7813A585 and it is over $3,000 on parts websites. You can buy a brand new Nissan Leaf AC compressor f...

Re: 12 Volt battery is failing, I'm looking for replacement

According to Firestone Complete Auto Care, on average a car battery lasts 3 to 5 years, and our 2012 Mitsubishi i 12 volt lead-acid batteries are over three years old. However, since our 12 volt batteries are not required to crank out starting amps, I'm hoping they will last longer. I've worked with...

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

Fantastic video Martin!
Essential tools include a voltmeter and torque wrench. Were any other special tools required?
There have been some battery cell failures on this forum. Do you charge outside in the cold in the winter?
Thanks,
Bob

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

Was the cell located where you expected it to be in the pack? The diagram from Malm looks like a different placement for cell 23. Does cell #1 start at the bottom (-) or top (+) of the pack? The cell replaced in Malm's drawing is here: http://i.imgur.com/GBxDMmv.png Perhaps the front and back group...

Thanks,
