Re: [POLL] On-Board Charger and DC/DC Converter

Hi Folks, In a week will have had Maeve for two years. Maintenance has been wash, wax, wiper blades. Recently both rear tires started to need topping off about once a month, may try replacing the valve stems. Or having tires re-seated on the rims. 1. Year and mileage on your iMiev: 2014 with 15,900 ...

Re: plastic roof-edge strips

Hi Y'all, It looks like the plastic clip is meant to be part of the plastic trim piece, and then the trim (with the clips) is pushed into place over the metal tabs in the roof channel. It might be easier to take the clip off the metal, and then attach it to the rail. Then, as an assembly, push it on...

plastic roof-edge strips

Hi Folks, I was washing the roof of Maeve and scrubbing along the edge(very dirty) and about half of one of the plastic roof-edge strips popped out. There are little plastic 'keepers' that clip on to raised metal bits in the channels, and it looks like the strips clip on to the keepers. But I can't ...

Re: Used 2012 I-miev remote climate control

Hi Folks, We bought our 2014 used and it was supposed to have the remote but did not. It can get pretty cold here in the North Carolina mountains. I've been putting a little electric heater in the car to warm it up but it would be nice to use the car's preheat function. Anybody want to part with a r...

Re: Car on charge, now won’t run (asking for someone else)

Hi PV1,

A long shot, but the shift mechanism not going completely to PARK will prevent the car from starting.
Maybe try a few, firm shifts up in to PARK, or look underneath for full travel of the mechanism?

Thanks and good health, Weogo

Re: Recent recall for brake vacuum pump. Issue of distant dealership.

Hi Y'all, Nearest dealer was 14 miles, then 78 miles, now is 38, and they just got electric training for a mechanic. I had the recall done yesterday, took less than 45 minutes. Put Maeve on their charger for an hour and had enough juice to get home. Am glad I didn't have to hassle with getting to th...

Re: My least favorite feature

Hi Folks, The near freezing temps ding was un-nerving till I knew what it was! For me, the least favorite 'feature' is the right/rear pillar obstructs vision when merging. I've learned to lean forward/back to better check what's coming, but am still cautious. The headlight dimmer is kindof soft, I'v...

Re: Charging two i-Mievs

Hi Toby, IF that is the ONLY outlet on that breaker, AND it has 12ga wiring, an electrician could easily convert it to 240V, 20A(derated to 16A) using the existing 12ga wiring. The white neutral wire would be marked at each end with red tape and labeled HOT. At max charge rate our Maeve pulls about ...

Re: FYI brake vacuum pump recall for early 2020

I too got notification today, for our 2014.

Hopefully the non-EV dealer that is 25 miles away can do the work, and I don't have to do the 78 mile trip to the EV-certified shop.

Thanks and good health, Weogo
