Re: Either my car or my home charge point is playing up... which one?

I just want to let everyone know my car has been charging great with the new 12 volt starter battery I installed recently until Saturday when I went to plug it in and nothing! I tried everything but no charging. I even tried 3 different EVSEs that I have and nothing. Then I figured it out. We had a ...

Re: Either my car or my home charge point is playing up... which one?

Thanks for this good thread with some newer members! It's a reminder to me to go lubricate MR BEAN's gearbox lever, but I'd like to mention that I've seen physical resistance to inserting a J1772 handle on some vehicles such that EVen if the latch snaps down, insertion is incomplete and communicati...

Re: Either my car or my home charge point is playing up... which one?

I don't really have anything to comment on the last two posts as I'm only guessing myself with all of this. But just to update on my own situation with intermittent charging failures. My dad helped me lubricate the park/drive/reverse selector at the back of the car last November. This did seem to c...

Re: Either my car or my home charge point is playing up... which one?

Thanks for the idea here. I started off by dissembling and cleaning out the charge port but I still couldn't charge yesterday. Then I changed the starter battery today and tried charging and everything started working again. I'm just not sure for how long though. Since there's no error codes I suspe...

Re: Either my car or my home charge point is playing up... which one?

I'm starting to have some similar charging issues with my silver I-miev. It indescriminately stops charging maybe a half hour later giving me about one bar on the fuel gauge. I get no error codes on the dash and my aux. battery is about 4 years old so I may just change it just to make sure. A week a...

Re: Minimum Range Remaining

20 miles with a 1,000 pound trailer sounds pretty good. How aero was the trailer?

I FIX IT :D

I replaced capacitor and fuse and now my car is OK.

Thanks for all.

I will try to put pictures if i can because it's difficult for me to add it here.
I did the same thing a few years ago. It was a great feeling!

Re: 2014 goin in for a New Battery
