Re: i-bargains

Salvage auction values are remaining strong. I watched a totaled 2012 Raspberry go for $2550 this morning. It had hood, front bumper and headlight damage.

Re: i-MiEV Trailer Hitch Wanted

I exhausted my appeals to Torklift to produce a few more hitches. I believe when they claim to have scrapped the jigs, but “threw out the drawings”?!! Anyway, the lightweight design posted here by a user years ago should be good for bicycles and light towing, but it’d take replication or a quality c...

Re: i-MiEV Trailer Hitch Wanted

Thx Joe, I spoke with the production foreman and am awaiting a response. He did recall several previous requests to restart this hitch, and should get back to me tomorrow. I told him all 2012 models with 2" receiver. I don't believe there were any differences in 2012-16, do you?

Re: i-MiEV Trailer Hitch Wanted

Excellent idea, Joe. I’m about to buy a Model S hitch from Torklift, am local and have dealt with them directly before, so would be happy to echo your efforts or just walk in with the offer myself.

Re: MCU 20A 450VDC fuse investigation

I was wrong when I initially thought the LEAF ignored the J1772 plug's push-button. It does indeed immediately and electronically (i.e. safely) ramp the charge current down to zero when the button is pressed. It's just that there is absolutely no indication that anything has changed; the blue LEDs ...

Re: It Has Arrived!

Congrats Ed, We'd love to hear the batt stats after a year of hibernating, and at what SOC did it sleep? Also if you don't mind, how much did the cross-country shipping set you back? I'm bringing in a Transit Connect Electric from Missouri to Seattle right now, and it was a challenge to gitrdone bel...

Re: I-Miev airbag warning light on

Yes, I use the iCarsoft 909 a lot. It will definitely clear airbag codes, as long as nothing else was damaged. I'm still figuring out which airbag codes are "hard codes" that immediately re-trigger even if you leave a blown airbag disconnected, such as the "open squib".

Re: i-MiEVs Reviewed on Used Market

Thanks Don, btw- what's a good price on T-105s these days. The depressed value of scrap lead never seems to carry over to cheaper batteries. A T-105 was in the $60 range 20 years ago..

Re: Onboard charger repair

That’s some bad luck, sorry to hear. Please note that your car should DC Fast charge normally, but you’ll need to manually recharge the 12V battery and preferably run an auxiliary 12V input, such as through the cigarette lighter- style 12V outlet. I’d recommend getting a collision salvage charger an...
