Need OnBoard Charger (OBC) box 2012Imiev Texas

Hi I-Miever Believers,
My 2012 Imiev has stopped charging and I believe it is the Onboard Charger. A 5"X5" box with orange cables that sits upon the inverter.
Would someone have one? Thanks, Tony in Austin, Tx (the land of Teslas)

Re: 2012 i-MiEV SE parts car for sale

Could I get the OCB from it? I believe I've narrowed my problem down to the onboard charger. It is a 5"X5" box with orange cables that sits ontop of the inverter. Thanks, Tony in Austin, Tx (tonyfri@yahoo.com)

Re: Parting out two cars

How about the OBC? Small 5"X5" box with orange cables on top of the inverter box.
Mine just went out. Can't charge it up.

Re: Troubleshooting and repair for On-board Charger (OBC)

Thank you for these amazing replies. I believe my next step is to see if the dealer will replace the OBC. I tested to see if charge was coming through a clip just ahead of the OBC and there was. Then I checked to see if there was any voltage coming to the orange wires coming out of the OBC into the ...

Re: Car Not Charging/OMB reader not connecting

Alright, well, I just put in a new 12V battery and it didn't fix the problem.
I checked the connections on the cable going into the OBC and they looked good.
How would I verify that it is the actual On Board Charger box?

Re: Car Not Charging/OMB reader not connecting

I did use my neighbor's dongle and it did the same thing.
The 12V battery is at 12.93V when off and 14.52 when in "ready". I don't think that is the problem.
Thanks, I will look into the I909.
Today I plan to check the connections on the On-Board Charger box.

Re: Car Not Charging/OMB reader not connecting

What is a dongle? Are you talking about the charging plug thing? :shock:

Car Not Charging/OMB reader not connecting

Ni All, Amazing site. I have read alot and felt comfortable enough to open the DC-DC inverter because of this thread. Thanks. Unfortunately I did not see much wrong. Also when I plug in a OBD reader it turns on but says "Failure to connect to car". Is this a different issue or maybe a symp...

We thought...
