Remote/heat/ac while charging
Posted: Mon May 13, 2019 10:56 am
My recently purchased 2012 Imiev came with key fobs to unlock the doors but no remote. Should it have had a remote? Did all 2012 imiev's come with a remote in the USA? I tried turning on the heat and ac while the car was plugged in. It did not appear to draw on the 120volt input but on the battery. The usage meter I had plugged in to the outlet showed no additional 120v usage when the heat came on. (car was fully charged at that point). Is there a way to heat and cool the imiev when plugged in with the 120v without the remote? Is it possible to get a remote for my car which would allow advance heating or cooling use 120v instead of the traction battery? In another thread someone mentioned that the antenna for the remote was behind the small window in front of the mirror on the right side. I don't see any evidence of an antenna there.
