rarely the car doesn't go to READY mode -- what's up?

Hi, Just a few times when I turn the key nothing happens. The battery red image is illuminated. Then, after a few tries it does go to READY mode. Is there advice as to what is causing this? Other than that, our 2014 iMiev has been terrific! Perfect as a city car, even in Nova Scotia winter. And we a...

one month winter iMiev non-use in Canada - what to do?

Hello, My apologies if this question has been addressed -- I wasn't able to find a responses, so -- My iMiev will not be used in Nova Scotia while we are away for a month. It is outside. How much charge should it have? Other precautions? MUST it be driven by a neighbour to prevent trouble? Thank you...

iMiev wiper blades size

I've put on two 24" Bosch blades on both arms, and they seem to work just fine, no overlap problem. It seems that it is recommended to have one blade 20" but I see no reason to do that -- 24's on both arms seems to be fine. Has anyone done this?

turning off the horn beep at locking

Hello, For some reason the answer back beep is now activated, and we want to turn it off. But the weird instructions for doing so (at 5 - 6 in the user manual) make no sense to us, and our attempts produced nothing. Can anyone tell us using plain English how to do this? Thanks, Roger and Helen Halif...

iMiev window visors

I saw an iMiev at our dealer with the tinted window visor-vents. Does anyone have experience with these?
Do they actually help with ventilation? Do the reduce visibility? Noise or drag? So, are they worth getting?

thanks,
Roger

Re: sound of warming fan for battery?

Thanks for the link. It does sound much like the circulation pump -- strange thing is, I had never heard it before, and it seems to be running all the time.

Re: sound of warming fan for battery?

No sound when the key is out -- hear it when the car is in READY mode, driving or not.

Re: sound of warming fan for battery?

It makes the sound all the time, even on Ready. It is new today, hadn't heard it before.

sound of warming fan for battery?

I'm hearing a somewhat annoying (I'm used to the quiet!) rather high sounding hum from the rear of the car this morning. The temp. here in Halifax was around 0C last night. Is this the sound of the battery warming fan, or do I need to take it in to the dealer to have it checked out? Thanks, Roger 20...

Re: How much should the battery be depleted before charging

Thanks for your advice!
Interesting that the manual doesn't seem to say anything about not fully topping up the battery, in order to extend the batteries' life.
