Re: I Just Noticed That The Ammeter Moves When The Heater Is Turned ON

Joe put an ammeter on the power cable many years ago, as we were all curious about what it's telling us - It's documented here on an old thread

IIRC, the full scale of the dash meter is right at 150 amps and the max regen before it pegs in the other direction is right at 50 amps, but the car will regen more than 50 amps - It just pegs the meter at 50 amps
