Re: Battery replacement question

So I got a call back from Mitsu Corporate. Said that the rep was in error to "open a case" for me, and that battery pricing is between the customer and a dealer, with no place for corporate involvement. I told 'em that $15k for a 16 kWh battery in 2022 was BS, that this was a de-facto refu...

Re: Battery replacement question

It took two calls in two hours and one disconnection after being placed back on hold by a human and no callback, but I've finally got a case opened with Mitsu Corporate to try and get a statement about non-warranty battery replacements. Their pack pricing of $15k no longer passes any semblance of a ...

Re: 2012 iMiev charging problems. New problem

Excellent photos, thank you! Yes, he's got one stone-dead cell at 0.45V while the others appear healthy. This is the most common failure mode that triggers a pack replacement under warranty in the USA. I would think it worthwhile to swap cells around on the same BMU and watch the results if you have...

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 communicatio...

Re: 2014 goin in for a New Battery

And then my wife washed my remote...] :lol: Well Dr. Sheep, if she's a good wife she probably proclaimed it your fault and made you feel sheepish about not cleaning out your pockets! My parts car didn't come with a remote, but if you do find a replacement, the reprogramming procedure posted here sh...

I finally watched this video. They called the i-MiEV the "Most Cultiest" of the affordable EVs. Must've read our forum!!! ;)

Re: WTB: Rear Seat

Thought I had replied before but don’t see it- I have a good brown rear seat, with both backs and headrests, send an offer for all or part.

Re: New battery pack or cells

Hi Electroman. I have a couple of spare packs, one of which is open and easy to extract modules or cells with about 76% SOH.
Where are you located?

Re: Battery replacement question

At least on a 2012 i-MiEV to 2012 i-MiEV swap, there's no pairing procedure required. It took a number of driving cycles for the range estimations to adjust to the new battery's higher capacity, but it did so gradually and reliably. I've got a long thread posted about the process.

A Change in LFP thinking?

Tesla recommends 100% daily charging and leaving the charge cable connected with the LFP Model 3. Have any of you dug into the why? Did they pick a lower charge termination voltage, tweak the chemistry, just try to simplify the user experience at the cost of battery service life? I don’t see whether...
