Re: 2012 ES i-MiEV hatchback

Nope. No such beast in these cars. Yet another advantage to simplicity.

Re: Life with Chevy Bolt EV

Still have mine and drive it occasionally. I got my new battery a week ago. Not much difference in range yet, but I’ve only put one cycle on the pack so far. Since my car has never received any software updates, I noticed a few things that have changed with the latest software. 1. Windshield washer ...

Re: Turtle Light at high SOC

Turtle Light is coming on in the second video (side-by-side with CaniOn) because of the cells hitting the low-voltage cutoff of 2.8 volts. The car is limiting power to keep the voltage from dropping too low (and what a good job it did). While low temperature is a factor, increased cell resistance is...

Re: Aptera is Back

Has anyone tried to put solar panels on the i-miev roof? Not sure if it would be doable or practical. Thoughts? Doable, but not all that effective for extending range. It works on Aptera because they have more space for solar, plus the car itself is 2.5 times more efficient than the I-MiEV. The amo...

Re: Constant 12V with ignition off

Hopefully someone can chime in. My I-MiEVs are buried in snow and I can’t get to them at the moment to see which wire color is the correct line. What I do know is that there is definitely a wire feeding constant battery voltage to the radio. The green one sounds like it could be it, but at 14.4 volt...

Re: The Magnet Hack?

Newer i-MiEVs came with a similar EVSE, but they just push the button to switch from 8 amps to 12 amps before plugging in. I've moved on from stock EVSEs to my OpenEVSE units. Fully programmable, open-source, and have built-in energy meters. Mine support level 1 and level 2 up to 40 amps, with a lon...

Re: 12v charging when plugged in but not in “ready”

I've been successfully using a wifi dongle and hob drive on an iOS device and it connects with the dongle, but cannot "see" the car. On the weekend, I tried a bluetooth dongle and an Android device with Torque app (just to see whether it would connect). and it was able to connect to the d...

Re: 2012 iMiEV right mirror assembly

The mount is different, but the glass and housing from the 2015 Lancer looks very similar.

Re: 12v Battery - All You Ever Wanted To Know

One thing I experienced today is the car with exclamation point idiot light being lit after using a Noco battery booster to get her started. You'll need to clear the codes to turn the light off. Had this happen with a flat 12 volt battery in Koorz. Does anyone remember if we have measured what the ...

Re: Our Gas Free Miles Travelled

Bear is now at 50,822 miles. Photon (my Bolt) recently surpassed 41,000 miles. Koorz is close to 27,000 miles, having 19,300 miles on when I purchased it in 2015. The Model 3 joined the family at 12,500 miles and is now at 15,059 miles, having already done two 300+ mile day trips. All in all, I'm si...
