Re: Car not charging

Inasmuch as the blown board may be due to past sudden disconnects or power outages at the plug, would putting in a UPS for the charger make sense? On a similar note, I went to the May Phoenix Electric Auto meeting held at Gruber Repair in Phoenix. They repair Teslas of all kinds including the Roadst...

Re: Just posted my 2017 iMiEV Review to Youtube

The pdf specifications state that it's NEDC range.

But it would still seem to be more efficient. Makes one wonder if they improved the battery some?

Re: Any I Witnesses?

Saw this iMiev pic today in a Cleantechnica article on Ecotricity charging and wondered if it belonged to a forum member? https://www.google.com/search?q=ecotricity+charging&prmd=nisv&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjLz76Bg_ThAhXrhFQKHf34BFsQ_AUoAnoECA4QAg#imgrc=_3wP7jX2s913uM

Re: Care and Feeding of the OBC/dc-dc

Pressing the button alone without withdrawing the J1772 Turbocord caused the Volt to shut off charging and noticeably turned the charging light on the dash off. Did you hear the contactor in the EVSE drop out as well? Was there a short but discernible (less than a second) delay between pressing the...

Re: Care and Feeding of the OBC/dc-dc

Coulomb, thank you very much for your detailed explanation with the schematic - I should have reviewed the J1772 interface myself before posting. The concept of the J1772 switch triggering the vehicle controller to first ramp down the charging power had escaped me. . . . As a result, we're now goin...
