Indicator (Car!) keeps comes on from time to time

I don't know the exact name of the indicator, but it looks like a car and there's a big exclamation (!) mark in the middle. Manual says it has something to do with the lithium (drive) batteries. This light comes on apparently randomly, I think sometimes when it's cold (around -15C / 5F or lower), an...

Re: Practical solutions for extending cold weather range

A few of us developed a Cold Weather Chart last winter. The i-MiEV will not charge or start below -30c/-22F. The Battery Warmer only operates between -15c/-30c. http://myimiev.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=713 http://sphotos-b.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-prn1/53634_488878927789592_666498796_o.jpg ...

Re: Miev gathering St Eustache, Québec

C'est intéressant, laissez moi savoir si vous en planifier un autre. Un peu dur d'aller de Ottawa a Montréal avec un i-Miev mais ça devrait être possible.

Re: Can the charging station be outside?

I just figured I'd add for Canadians, evandmore.com not only has external chargers like the EVDUTY-40, they even have external outlets for the chargers. Amazon.ca also has some of the external outlets I think.
The EVDUTY-40 are rated to -40 C, so you should have no problems with the cold.

Re: Sun panels charging.

If you're talking about solar panels on the car itself, given the size and therefore power constraints, I would just hook up the solar panel to the lead acid battery and call it a day. This will keep it from needing to be charged up from the traction battery. If you want to have a separate system, y...

Re: 2016 iMiEV + ILX-007 [Aftermarket radio install]

Did you ever find a plug for the radio? I have bought (but not yet received - SOON!) a 2016 i-Miev with the boring MP3 CD radio. It has to go! :lol: :D So if you know where I can get the connector for it, it would be a great help to me.
