Re: Couldn't shift past R - very strange

Thanks for the replies.
I will take a peak today and lubricate as needed.
I'll let you know what I find (if anything).
Cheers,
Roman

Couldn't shift past R - very strange

Wondering if anyone else has had this issue? I couldn't shift past R after trying to get the i-MiEV going during a normal starting procedure. My 2014 ES has about 55,000 kms on it. I bought it new, my first new car in my short 56 years on Earth. I have never had an issue with the car before. I event...

My odometer and speedometer read 5% high with stock tires

Good Day. I have verified the 5% high reading on the odometer with a 10 km test section on the highway near home. 10 km test section registers 10.5 kms on the trip meter. Plus all of those speed warning stations read lower than my speedometer says. If I indicate 105kms per hour on the I-MiEV digital...

Re: The EVSE with at least FOUR names

This is a relatively decent EVSE. I have been using it for 2 years now. Although I have had to already replace the only electro-mechanical part in it...the 40 amp 2 pole contactor. It failed. It started chattering like a chain saw. The original contactor was made in China. The replacement was source...

argh - My little I-MiEV rolled down the driveway while plugged in

Well it wasn't my week. My wife's vehicle was on the fritz....a dino fuel burning diesel Jeep SUV....so I was driving it to diagnose an intermittent electrical issue that caused it to go into limp mode occasionally - stuck in 2nd gear. So she was driving the I-MiEV back and forth to work. I had just...

Re: My winter driving range has dropped a lot!

Thanks a lot for this info. Makes me feel a bit better that there is nothing really wrong with my little I-MiEV. The only thing wrong is that I like the heat on in the winter! My summer range is much better - about 50% more than my winter range roughly. I go from an average of 80kms RR to about 120k...

My winter driving range has dropped a lot!

My Guess-o-meter usually only shows between 80 and 85 kms RR these days (50 - 53 miles RR) first thing in the morning after a full 16 bar charge. My drive is 60% highway and 40% secondary 40mph roads. It has been cold here lately (at least cold by Vancouver standards ) at below zero °C (-5°C to -10°...

Re: Need to add a rear seat belt !!

Easy addition. I added a Mitsubishi factory lap belt in between the two rear regular shoulder belt assemblies. The lap belt halves can easily share the two factory mounting bolts with shoulder belt assemblies in the middle of the rear seat. You will have to remove the rear seat cushion to easily acc...

Re: Roof Rack

Hello Joe. I assume you must be a sailor / boater or in the marine industry to be using that terminology! (-; I am a sailor as well. A wee 19' Seaward Fox on a trailer. No noise to speak of. I can't comment on any range loss, at least not scientifically. But at least now I can carry a few 2x4's with...
