Re: My Car is Only Charging Up to 12 Bars

Fri Apr 07, 2017 9:09 am

Hmmmm, still says 35 Ahr and RR shows only 62 miles after a full charge. I usually get over 70 with original pack.

This weekend I'll bring it down to 2 bars and try a level one charge.
2012 ES, Cool Metalic Silver, no quick charge, no fog lights and no navi but a cold weather package for when it gets 13 below, wait - it never gets that cold here.

After slow charging from two bars EVBatmon says I have a 36Ahr battery! An increase of 1 Ahr. At least I'm going in the right direction. :mrgreen:

The good thing is the new battery pack seems to last as long as my old pack or better.

Bello everybody. Mi write from spain. We are a owners group of citroen/Peugeot (psa group) eléctric vehicle clones of the i-Kiev.
Once person of our group seems a issue with cell #7, that is down and not charge.
The car has 60000 kms now and out of warranty. In psa group the pack batery cost arround 18.000 €, and yuasa dont sell a cell for replacement.
So the Soc of the car stop at aprox 14 segments.
Is there any solution or any compatible cell to replace de faulty one?
Many thanks in advance. Here in spain the dealers dont say any solution about this issue.

If you need some battery elements, I have some used ones (coming from a 2011 Mitsubishi imiev), they ran 35.000 km and remains around 40Ah (info from Canion)

Price would be 60 euros / cells + transport.
Just PM me if need

My 2012 iMiEV SE also just started having battery issues. It only charges up to 12 our of 16 kWh bars. My car has 43,000 miles on it. I already created my own thread regarding my issue before I found this thread. So, I will subscribe to this thread also and follow along.
