I recently bought 2012 Miev. The 12v starter battery soon died. I asked the Mitsubishi dealership in Montreal to buy but they said they have non. I then bought a battery from a nearby battery sales store which I was told is good for miev. I installed it. The 12v battery worked and the miev started and run. When I installed the new battery, it started well and was drivable; but I think because of the cold weather and long parking the energy level indicator gauge bar was zero. I charged it for 3 hours while charging the charge indicator light in the instrument panel was ok. But after 3 hours of charging when I drovethe miev, the energy level indicator gauge bar is still zero. What is the problem.
This is a matter of major concern and your help is greatly appreciated.
