    New Member with a New Technical Question

    Hi John, Nice find, the battery is worth more than you paid for the car. I think you are on the right track suspecting the battery. The symptom of no dash lights indicates no 12v power. That is your first check. Jumper cables and a good battery is all you need to check that. Do I need to...

    Tech help needed with battery temp sensor [SOLVED]

    Kiev, Thanks for chiming in. I spoke with an EE neighbour and he concurs that a loose nut would cause the sensor behaviour. Taking the pack out to tighten a nut! What a pain. I will be thrilled if that is the only problem. Pete

    Tech help needed with battery temp sensor [SOLVED]

    I just had a thought. Cell 53 is on the end of the cell block and the bus is bolted to it. Lets assume that the temp sensor is working, if the busbar was loose on the terminal would the terminal heat up quickly? Could that explain the behaviour of the sensor? I did have to loosen the nut in...

    Tech help needed with battery temp sensor [SOLVED]

    That's the pack layout I have used (the correct one you just posted). Is the temperature sensor map in that thread correct?

    Tech help needed with battery temp sensor [SOLVED]

    Hi All, I am looking for some assistance with an issue. Last week I dropped the pack in my 2012 to replace some weak cells. The job went smoothly (i am always nervous that I'm going to screw something up) and the car seemed fine until it shut down during a short test drive ( RBS light and car...

    Arrrrgghhhhh, I was the 2nd highest bidder. I was dreaming of that new battery! I was wishing I was closer and didn't have to factor in transport costs to Canada. If anyone knows the whereabouts of a low mileage battery please send me a note.

    Looking for a couple of used cells

    Hi All, My battery is getting on in years. The capacity is bouncing around 24 AH and I have identified 4 cells that are very weak. I have two good spare cells and I am looking for at least 2 more. I'd be happy with anything above 30 AH's I'm hoping to replace the cells this year as the...

    Trouble with gearbox, un-drivable at the moment

    I know this happened a long time ago now, but I want to let you know that you nailed the cause. It rolled fine in reverse, only moving forward caused the issue. Good Call. The issue has never recurred.

    Add another OBC Failure

    PV1, It may be on its way to failing. My first charging problem "fixed" itself and the car charged fine for 3 days before the OBC stopped working for good. Keep it close home so you don't get stranded.

    Trouble with gearbox, un-drivable at the moment

    :cry: I drove to work today, parked and plugged in as I always do. When I left at the end of the day the car was slow to move, it seemed like the e-brake was still on but it wasn't. I pressed harder on the accelerator and it lurched repeatedly as it moved forward almost like something in the...

    Replacing Peugeot Ion 2012 OBC with I-MiEV 2017 OBC

    Radi513, Can you post a picture of the OBC? The videos in the link JoeS provided are of my car. I think the 2015 OBC is the same design as the 2013 I used. If it came with the cables then you should be able to change it out.

    Swapping 2013 for 2012 OBC - Helpful Videos

    I learned quite a bit performing this swap including the correct names for the parts :lol: . The next time I spend some time on my car I'll take a video of what the whole installation looks like. I need to check it anyway as some of the connections I made were meant to be "temporary".
