Re: i-MiEV Nightmare and seeking advice please?

- - - Actually, I drove all over today, and when I started the car (was a full charge this morning), it started on 41 miles and of course I temporarily panicked... however after driving all over town today, making sure to always accelerate as far into the LEFT of the ECO section (slow take-offs), a...

Re: i-MiEV Nightmare and seeking advice please?

Michael, thank you for your comments. Like many of us who get new cars, the first thing we want to do is customize it and on this forum you'll find a few threads regarding the audio system. I'd suggest getting familiar with the car first and doing your homework before considering any mods. To clarif...

Re: i-MiEV Nightmare and seeking advice please?

Michael, let me also welcome you to the forum. Good for you, doing your homework ahead of time and buying a car that will meet your needs, at least for the near-term. Reading this made me wish that one of us could have been there with you to help you get kick-started. The experience you had with you...

Re: Possible Cooling System Problem??

By all means, I'd assume that the car was sitting for most of its life. Repeatedly topping off (thus balancing the cells) might help. Don, it's like with the virus, without testing you don't know what's going on. I would focus on getting your Android and CaniOn working, and a couple of the OBDLinks ...

Re: Better charging controls

Andrew, to answer your question, my wife and I had used two of these mechanical timers for about 5-7 years on our two i-MiEVs with no OBC issues (touch wood). Since I almost always never charge to 100% and want to stop the charging at around 12-13 bars, it became second nature to simply eyeball the ...

Re: Do you have a charger remote control you DON'T use much??

Yes, that is indeed Aerowhatt's wife posting. I am really saddened, as he and I had many spirited discussions on this forum and he contributed many great ideas to us all. I had suggested that she might consider posting on this forum if she decides to sell the car. Even though I had suggested keeping...

Re: Got Solar!

Congratulations on putting that contraption together! Yes, very soon the temperatures will be able to get dangerously hot so make sure you have some way of limiting the upper temperature as well as having an overpressure relief valve (one probably came with the tank). A blown pipe spewing steam and ...

Re: Turtle at Half Charge Under Load?!?!?!

Graveaxis, thanks for the screenshot and information and updating your location. Looks to me like there is one seriously-weakened cell (#11) and a few other ones that aren't happy, and that's at 32%SoC. Question: while driving down the highway and flooring the accelerator and the Turtle shows up, is...

Re: Turtle at Half Charge Under Load?!?!?!

Disturbing news about Mitsubishi's responses, not boding well for the future. Corporate change? Graveaxis, do you have some screenshots or photos of your most extreme cell voltage disparity readouts? Interested in knowing what those voltages are at what overall SoC? Does your tool provide a battery ...

Re: Do you have a charger remote control you DON'T use much??

Aerowhatt, I sent you a Private Message, and add my sincerest condolences to you. In answer to your question, keep the Remote with the car, as it adds value to the car itself.

Acensor, I may have a lead on a Remote and I'm trying to contact him. Will let you know if anything develops.
