Re: New 2009 i-MiEV Owner

(Slightly) good news! Running the battery so low can be quite nerve wracking, but I was able to get the SoC to less than 15% - right around here the turtle mark appeared. Going much lower however the heater stopped working and the 12v battery light lit up like before. Hoping this means that more of ...

Cherry Blossom Season

It's cherry blossom season in the Tokyo area right now - just happened to find a nice parking space at the local park!

Re: New 2009 i-MiEV Owner

An update: Just finished getting a dealer battery calibration done. Took a little longer than expected as it seems the older models (2009~2011?) require the process to be carried out manually. The result is very interesting though. A very poor SoH of 54.583% with cells at 26.2 Ah (OBDZero shows as e...

Re: New 2009 i-MiEV Owner

After about an hour on level 1, the voltages are back to looking fairly normal.
I wonder what would cause an issue like this?

Re: New 2009 i-MiEV Owner

Finally got around to running the car down to do a calibration charge. So here's what happened: 3 bars: (!) in car mark appears 2 bar: turtle appears 1 bar: 12v battery mark + (!) in car mark. Won't go to ready. Heating disabled (SoC @ 17%) After that, the battery cooler fan was running non-stop for...

Re: New 2009 i-MiEV Owner

Thanks. And yes, I've found the actual usable range to be around 60/70km. I do have a regular petrol car for long distance so the short range isn't too much of a problem, but I would like to see what's going on in the last few bars. Here's some screenshots from OBDZero at around 80% SoC. https://i.i...

New 2009 i-MiEV Owner

This is my first post, so hopefully this is the right place! I bought a used 2009 i-MiEV here in Japan a few months ago for around 360,000 yen. The main purpose was to use it as a second car for quick shopping trips etc. Where I bought it, they told me I would be able to get around 100km of range w/...
