Re: my 2013 Peugeot iOn will not charge :(

Blimey thats dedication ! :shock: To be fair when I had the traction battery out of my first i-miev it was dark with a light drizzle and I had got that far I couldn't resist taking the lid off..... Anyhow i'm honestly not sure what kind of sealant it is, its grey and looks to me like lead sheet seal...

Re: my 2013 Peugeot iOn will not charge :(

The lids of the boxes under the boot have a sealant type stuff on, its not a gasket. You prise the lid off and it breaks the seal. Also the orange "fuse" under the passenger seat can be removed without taking the seat out - just push it back as far as it will go and its possible to unbolt ...

Re: 12V consumption and range increase

Hi all, I have thought about this before - I found that the brake booster uses a lot ofamps, like 30 or 40 amps. I read of someone that had a failed booster and had to replace it - they said the new one was a lot lower power consumption. The booster does not run all the time but it would save some p...

Re: P1A15 fault on a Peugeot Ion

hi there, i have seen on the forums a failure of the pre-charge resistor itself, located inside the battery pack.... found it here - https://forums.aeva.asn.au/viewtopic.php?t=5788 It also details the location of the charge capacitor - so for some reason the capacitor on your car does not reach a hi...

Re: When to be concerned about Ah number

There is a guy named gary on the FB page for our cars; is that you? Yes I will look at canIon individual voltages when I get down to 3 bars and see what it says. Lately I have noticed that number 64 is running hotter than the others during charge. It is up around 29C while others tend toward 26 or ...

Re: Repair Service (Exchange) for Charger DCDC Converter

Hi.

I'll put some pictures on but i doubt its repairable, a hole has burned right through. Im comfortable with repairing electronics and I know some good repair guys who can do the stuff I can't.

Cheers.

Gary.

Re: Repair Service (Exchange) for Charger DCDC Converter

Hi there, I am in the UK and would love to buy some circuit boards from US chargers !!! The main board which seems to fail is the one with the big 3 capacitors on it, and I have a failed charger in my garage that has a hole burned right through the circuit board ! So far no warranty replacements ove...

Re: When to be concerned about Ah number

What does the warranty state about expected degradation? 35.6Ah is about right for the age of vehicle, that is about 77% battery health (based on 46Ah for a new vehicle). I doubt the warranty protects you against natural degradation, i've heard about pack replacements under warranty but that is wher...

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

Style wrote:Having same issue. OP-What was the resolution to the issue ?


This is generally caused by a battery cell going bad. Turtle is triggered by low voltage on a battery so even though the car has plenty of charge, one cell's voltage drops when it is used.

What country are you located?

Thanks.

Re: The aftermarket cell replacement saga

These look familiar !!!!!

Unfortunately the reviews say they are 40Ah version (LEV40).... damn it !

These are a good size and rating, unfortunately fairly expensive.
