Re: Power the house with MiEV battery?

Hi PV1. You wrote... "...cabin heater in the i-MiEV runs directly off the main battery, ..." I ,m confident you know more about the MiEV traits that I do. And I’m curious about that statement: If I remember right the main panel ready and set a very high voltage. Something like 330 V. I'd f...

Re: Why and how to get and program a third key :idea:

Unfortunately, this easy key owner DIY programming of a third key (when you have two good keys) does not work on all cars. AFAIK won't work on my 2015 Forester. Glad it worked on your Volt.

Re: Power the house with MiEV battery?

Yeah Don, I agree that using the MiEV as a whole house power supply isn't great idea. Let alone use it in a manner to drain it dead empty. As you imply, during a zombie apocalypse it would be far better to keep the EV fully charged for transportation at a time when gasoline might be unavailable for ...

Re: Annual inspection and "required" maintainence?

Hi Sisal47. Love and appreciate your comprehensive overview of prudent maintenance for our MiEVs. A couple of thoughts, and at least one question: "...Anyone who owns an I-MiEV should also have the CANION program to monitor the battery pack." That CANION program has been mentioned before. ...

Why and how to get and program a third key :idea:

Couple of years ago I lost one of my two original keys for my 2012. Long story short.... It cost a great deal of money and time to have the dealer replace and program a replacement key. Probably close to $400. I did go to local locksmiths who claimed they could do it for less first, but they were un...

Power the house with MiEV battery?

Last I remember couple of years back Mitsubish has an interface to allow the MiEV to seamlessly be used a home backup/emergency power supply. The catches were IIRR it was hideously expensive and not available outside Japan. But recently in a reply to another thread of mine our moderator, JoeS, said ...

Re: new owner question

Don explained more about alignment that I ever could. I'll just add a few notes: # Several (at least two of us) got new MiEV's delivered with the front wheels toe set not quite correctly. That COULD cause what you report. Perhaps worse, it can wear your expensive front tires quickly (unfortunately, ...
