Re: Need a longer range ev

Beespeckled, the Bolt EV very definitely has CCS DCFC as an option. Why Chevy hasn't made it standard is beyond me! Most of the local dealerships spec CCS for the cars they receive. Over the next few years it will become the de facto North American DCFC non-Tesla standard and CHAdeMO will gradually ...

Efficiency When Charging While Towing

Hey FiddlerJohn, I brought these two posts over here as they are perhaps stand-alone curiosities rather than being off-topic in the "i-MiEV won't charge" thread.

This is reminiscent of one of my favorite books - "How to Lie With Statistics". :twisted:

Re: Need a longer range ev

beespeckled, thank you for sharing. In our household, once the decision was made to go ICE-less, life became very simple as the field became narrow. After so many years in a pure BEV, I really hate riding in anything with an internal combustion engine! That said, PHEVs like the Outlander or Pacifica...

Re: Is my battery dying ?

DBMandrake, thank you for the update. Pity about the rust (here in California, my 1967 Saab is still rust-free so I'm clueless) and the bolts breaking are just a PIA to drill out and remove. Looking forward to the photos and your writeup of the process!

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

Thanks for the inputs. The only charging my friend has done for 3-1/2 years is using the Mitsu (Panasonic) EVSE on 120vac and has never charged anywhere else. First thing I had asked him to do was try another outlet. He travels a lot and the car is presently still sitting at the dealer's. There is a...

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

Well, a buddy of mine with a 2012 SE Premium (far away from California) got the charging failure. Long story short, the dealer's service department, after poking around for a few weeks, told him that he has a Code 39 but the MMNA Tech Bulletin says that for the OBC failure to be covered by warranty ...

Re: Process for programming new remote for I-MIEV

Hi @kiev, thanks for that. I added your input to PV1's already-existing HowTo Use the i-MiEV Remote thread. The threads in that subforum can only have one post.

Re: Process for programming new remote for I-MIEV

ediv, thank you for your post. You jogged my memory, as I was remiss in not providing this in our Tech/Reference subforum so it could be easily found. The original post was by jray3 back in December 2017, http://myimiev.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=3911#p34760 , and I've now copied it into our...

Reprogramming/Registering Remote with Another i-MiEV

I had forgotten to add jray3's writeup from December 2017 into this subforum so it could be easily found. Sorry. I had a spare remote that I was listing for sale, but instead- bought another i-MiEV that was missing the fob! With the conspiratorial support of my dear old dad, a retired petroleum engi...
