It will not go to ready without the big orange cables connected but all you need is to run diagnostics to check if you have identified the correct CMU.
So in total it has these connections on the battery pack:
- 2 twin plugs at the front, these power the heater and air con
- 2 sets of high voltage cables
- 3 multi plugs half way down one side
- one little plug at the back, this is for power for the cooling fan on the back of the battery pack
- an earth connection, on the opposite side to the multi plugs
You need the multi plugs half way down one side (if you sit in the car, its to your left) plugged in then you can use something like an iCarSoft i909 to check if you have identified the right battery pack.
This is what I did - I was 99% sure which battery module was CMU10, but to confirm i took out the battery pack, disconnected the little communications connector on CMU10, then put the battery back under the car, raised it, plugged the multi plugs in and used the iCarsoft, it said CMU10 communications error - bingo you have confirmed which CMU is the faulty one.
It was not that expensive for the new voltage monitoring chip (£18) and fitting by a mobile phone repair guy (£25) but I didnt want to waste time and the money anyway so thats how i confirmed i had the right one.
Also, ***PLEASE READ AND FOLLOW THE SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS IN THE MITSUBISHI BATTERY PACK REMOVAL DOCUMENT*** Its not my fault if you put your fingers where you shouldnt or do something in the wrong order !
