Re: Miev energy level indicator gauge bar shows empty after three hours of charging

Zel, welcome to the forum. I found your post in the Tech/Reference subforum which is Read Only which means no one would have been able to answer your question, so I moved it into this Battery Management subforum. Your problem sounds as though something lost it's mind and perhaps a reset is needed. I...

VW ID.4 EV

Finally, if I'm looking correctly at a photo on the VW website, another EV with a completely flat floor with the back seats down! Charging port on the right-rear like our i-MiEV (best location IMO). Initial reviews are very positive, with emphasis on the car's silence (by an experienced EV'er and Te...

Re: Range Remaining Lower at Full Charge

Update: after the full charge that only showed 52 miles RR, I drove it until one bar left (which showed 5 miles RR). I charged to full, RR now shows 59 miles, which is fine considering I drove to diminish it including running the heater, so I consider that back to normal. Oddly though the charger s...

Re: Interior courtsey light or dome light not working

Hi steve1960, welcome to the forum. I suspect that no one responded to you simply because this is probably the first instance of this problem. The rear dome light is fairly simple: power comes in on one pin, the variable 'ground' (from the ETACS-ECU) comes in on another pin (which provides the dimmi...

Re: Range Remaining Lower at Full Charge

It's winter - I wouldn't worry about it. Seat heater has a negligible contribution to range decrease. What year is your i-MiEV? You say that RR=62 is normal... do you fully fully charge the car often in that NOLA heat? THAT I would worry about from the perspective of battery longevity... If you're c...

Re: Achieving ready light without BMS connected, a REX and some flood

drcat, congratulations on your purchase! Before you do anything to/with the car, DRIVE IT! Get a feel for what works and what doesn't, and especially note how simply driving gently and slowing down has a dramatic effect on how far you can go. We have a saying around here: "Range is whatever you...

Re: Lost a Bar Overnight First Time

Um, thomash85715, a few points, if I may - 1. Amount of time it takes the car to charge, irrespective of Level 1 or Level 2, has nothing to do with the end RR reading. 2. EXACTLY what Amp-hour reading did CaniOn give? 70% does not tell us which baseline you used. My guess is that your capacity is ar...

Great! Adoepner, thank you for following up with this fix. I shudder to think what Mitsu charges for these things.

Re: 2016 iOn with 34k km / 21k miles

Yuri, thank you for the plot showing battery capacity vs. mileage for various years. Interesting that the newest ones show in-excess of 45Ah. The CaniOn app is very good for looking at cell voltages, but if I recall it does not work on the 2016 or 2017 cars to display battery capacity (Ah). I think ...
