Re: hobdrive - new program for monitoring charge readings

Nevertheless, there are such electric cars, questions in the subject were asked, we added new electric cars, now we have to check, the questioners allow them to write about the correctness of hobdrive, something like that. We have two 2014 North American iMievs, but as of yet have not been able to ...

Re: Battery Replacement - Lessons Learned

Tesla packs are arranged in replaceable modules, either 13 or 15 of them in the complete pack IIRC. I would bet if they have a failure, it's as simple as changing out the defective module. In addition, they use thousands of small cells, each fused separately so that if a single cell shorts out, the...

Re: Always on lighter/12v port

Wait, I have not checked if the stock lighter is active while plugged in. I assumed it was not. That would make it even easier...but then I wouldn't have my aux lighter port when not charging...which is useful for lighting things. The stock socket only works with the key on, unless a 2017 is differ...

Re: Always on lighter/12v port

The car does charge the 12v while charging. It uses the DC to DC converter which always puts out 14.4V. Which is a cycle charging voltage for a 12 volt battery. Float or trickle would be around 13.6 volts. 14.4V is exactly the same voltage charging when in READY mode too. Once the car stops charging...

Re: MCU 20A 450VDC fuse investigation

Okay, this is enough evidence of mechanical failure for me to put a pre-emptive fuse replacement on the maintenance schedule. My original lasted 80k miles, but a friend's only made it 45k., Do you have information on how both cars were charged most of the time L1 or L2. Any significant charging hab...

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

Mitsu tested things for the way that they suggest they be used. So as long as one is starting and stopping charging in the ways supplied and suggested in the manual, then things should be alright. There are externals like line surges and spikes, power outages, etc., that the system must absorb rarel...

Re: Will not preheat when fully charged.

New owner still figuring out the many quirks and features :lol: . My preheat and whatnot seems to work as intended while the car is charging(120v standard charger) but not once fully charged (still plugged in). I unplugged and fiddled around a bit with it. Plugged it back in. Charge light goes on. ...

Re: Spare Wheels

I just thought I would update this old thread with some new information. I've been carrying around the 2013 Honda Fit spare tire for three years and unfortunately we finally needed to use it (The wheel is stamped 15x4T, tire size T135/80D15 . . . 60 psi) . My wife came home last Friday evening with ...

Re: Regen vs Neutral and speed for max range

A couple of procedural questions: 1. Do you push the button on your Android device to take screen snapshots of the CaniOn display during your trip or do you employ some other technique to record and subsequently display the CaniOn information? 2. How did you produce that great altitude and speed vs...

Re: Regen vs Neutral and speed for max range

Is the bottom part of the hill (between mile 5 to 17) on an interstate? It seems that going 60-67 mph uphill would be using a huge amount of energy. Of course it doesn't really matter too much because you know you can always coast or regen as necessary to make it back home--but what an awesome clim...
