I went on chatting a bit with the chief mechanic, he told me 2 cells fail to charge: number 6 and 12. He is unsure if there is a pack in stock at PSA in France, if that is not the case they will have to ship it from Japan. They will change both the battery pack and the ECU.
Since they will probably need quite some time to receive the new parts, they will return me the car so that I can drive around with a limited range. Well, I think I'll take some pleasure in trashing that doomed battery in the next days. Drag-racing, anyone?
I'm not sure how many cells failed in my battery, I never got a read out as it was serviced by a dealer quite a bit away. Mitsubishi has just 3 dealers in NL that can service high voltage.
They told me in september that there were no batteries in the EU so it had to be shipped from Japan. It took 2 months before the car was returned, they lent me a Mitsubishi Spacestar during the time, but it depends on the dealer.
