Re: Citroen c zero not charging and blowing fuse

The little blue capacitors are rated for 2500 Volts and provide a snubber function for damping out momentary spikes on the high voltage output of the OBC. i have replaced those with larger sized caps rated at 6000 volt. The fat black capacitor is rated 310 VAC and provides filtering on the AC input ...

Re: my 2013 Peugeot iOn will not charge :(

The holes are plated thru in the circuit board. There are components on the bottom surface and above the waffle plate that are inaccessible without removing the plate, hopefully nothing fails there or within the plate. The snubber caps are connected in parallel across the output of the diode rectifi...

Re: my 2013 Peugeot iOn will not charge :(

Take a look at page 39-40 of the troubleshooting the OBC thread. i have some extra 6kV caps if you need some. You seem to know your way around circuit boards, so i'll let you know that i used a small gage wire with crimp lugs to replace the fuse for testing purposes only. i have a blown diode within...

Re: my 2013 Peugeot iOn will not charge :(

Good work on getting it opened up, That looks promising for repair since only one snubber has split and no other signs of damage in the doghouse. It may be that these snubber capacitors are the components that triggered the recent warranty extension by Mitsubishi. Take a look at Mouser, digikey, etc...

Re: On-Board Charger (OBC) Warranty Extended!

i got that letter today also, and just in time since one of my OBCs has failed. Awesome service by Mits to offer refunds for folks who paid to replace theirs. Now i just have to wonder which capacitors could be the culprits to which they refer? Big electrolytic or the blue snubbers? But why doesn't ...

Re: I-miev charging problem/ won't charge

Welcome to the forum, sorry to hear of your charger issue. Unfortunately too many folks have experienced this same exact problem. Most of the time the 20A fuse inside the MCU has blown, and this damages some snubber capacitors or more within the chargger unit. See the troubleshooting thread for deta...

Re: Always on lighter/12v port - Charging battery banks

Aero's suggestion is better than mine, but since you have the wires already laid from the rear to the front: i think the large diameter red wire coming in to the relay panel shown in pictures 10 and 12 of your set has 12V directly from the battery. There is also the 30A fuse #24 underneath the white...

Re: Swapping 2013 for 2012 OBC - Helpful Videos

Looking at the 2013 FSM, they changed the connection layout of the MCU to where the Pack negative is the leftmost terminal and Positive is between that and the 3 phases to the motor. There is still a 20A fuse in the MCU on the Positive line. Maybe this 2013 MCU diagram will help. i think CHGP is lik...

Re: Swapping 2013 for 2012 OBC - Helpful Videos

The red (or pink) wire inside the 2012 OBC is the positive HV output. The blue wire is the negative. The blue wire will be routed to the rightmost terminal lug in the MCU via a small lug screw in the MCU buss bar. The red wire routes to one end of the MCU fuse, the other end of the fuse goes to a sm...

Re: my 2013 Peugeot iOn will not charge :(

The HV fuse in the MCU and the blue snubber caps in the OBC seem to be the most common symptoms. Your 12V aux appears to be low at 12.2 ocv, so an external charge of that would be recommended if you have that equipment available.

Good luck and let us know what you discover.
