Re: Remove GPS Tracking Chip

As far as I know, no such thing exists in the I-MiEV without the nav head unit.

As for OnStar, GM is kind enough to have it easily disabled by pulling a fuse. My Bolt still has 35 “miles” on it ;) .

Re: What happened this week--site was unavailable?

Thanks for all that you do. Had us worried for a minute.

Joe and myself both were trying to reach you through email, but we kept getting undeliverables. Hopefully we didn’t flood your inbox.

Re: i-MiEV Nightmare and seeking advice please?

One of us mods could change it, or if you have a title in mind, go back to the first post and edit the Subject. My car Koorz has the Mitsubishi innovative Electric Vehicle decal on the side. High quality and still look new after 8 years. I doubt that they're still available, but you might have luck ...

Re: 12V battery cumulative drain higher then overall charging.

After several minutes, the dome lights turn off if a door or the hatch is left open, so that should limit drain, but then again your fix goes to the next level and cuts out all drain. The only time I experience high drain, which hasn't been noticeable with new batteries, is when I unlock the car, op...

Re: i-MiEV Trailer Hitch Wanted

I just sent an email to the other I-MiEV owner I know. Waiting to hear back.

Not sure if I want to put one on Koorz or not. Bear and Photon both have them.

Re: 12v battery keeps draining - parasitic drain?

Kind of obvious, but the dome lights are OFF when testing current, right? They are incandescent lights from the factory. I can't remember what the cable looks like, but there should be a bunch of wires that all attach to the positive battery clamp. One of these wires comes directly from the DC-DC co...

Re: Any I Witnesses?

Haven't seen the blue I-MiEV in town lately, although I did discover a silver I-MiEV that the owner works down the street from me. Been trying to get his attention and have him stop by on his way through.

Re: What Other EV's Have You Driven?

While I haven't driven one (yet), I did see my first Model Y two days ago. Dark blue with aero wheels that drove past my work. 8-)

Re: 2014 I-miev for sale in Fremont, CA

You're right, Joe. Forgot about that.

I believe there were 2017 US models, though only very few exist. I believe there was one on this forum that had some secret upgrades (bit more power, bigger battery, 5th seat belt).

Re: 2014 I-miev for sale in Fremont, CA

Yes. Any options on 2012 models that were only available from the factory (QC, cold weather, etc.) became standard equipment for 2014, 2016, and 2017 models. The only factory option became the paint color. All remaining options, like the USB port and fog lights, are dealer installable and still opti...
