Re: 12v Battery - All You Ever Wanted To Know

... how much water is currently in the battery. How do you tell how much water there currently is? I would be surprised if it needs topping up but maybe your climate demands a design of 12V aux battery that requires it...? I haven't seen a proper 'flooded'-type car battery (that needs regular maint...

Re: 12v Battery - All You Ever Wanted To Know

Do not keep the auxiliary battery removed for a long period of time (approximately 1 month or more). (The BMU will not be able to comprehend the main battery status.) If the auxiliary battery has necessarily been removed for a long period of time (approximately 1 month or more), perform "BMU L...

Wanted : i-MiEV / C-Zero / iOn Wheel & Tyre

I'm in the UK (Highlands) and need, ideally, a spare front and rear wheel with a half-decent tyre on each to keep as spares for a quick repair for when one of our fleet of MiEVs gets a flat - quite regular on our rubbish roads... One might do but I don't know if the front and rears are swappable - e...

Re: MUT3/MUTIII Clone Software

Hi Turnik79, Sorry, I should have updated this thread. I found someone on eBay who sells a MUT3 clone who sent me the files in the end. They were for the newer (I gather) 'M.U.T.-III SE' version but works OK with my MUT3. You would definitely need the MUT3 to get anything out of the program as witho...

Re: not charging my iON, cell or CMU or BMU problems

No 'kicking off'; there's a specific MUT3 app routine to do it (detailed on the SPeakEV thread, https://www.speakev.com/threads/i-miev-with-failing-battery-another-cmu-ltc-chip-failure.144620/page-3#post-2829628 ). Unfortunately, it does not appear to have helped 100% in my case as it appears the ve...

Re: not charging my iON, cell or CMU or BMU problems

I appear today to have confirmed that the MUT3 can renumber CMU BMS PCBs but I have yet to put the car back together again sufficiently to confirm (by seeing if it charges and runs - albeit with the battery still only temporarily attached). Please see https://www.speakev.com/threads/i-miev-with-fail...

Re: not charging my iON, cell or CMU or BMU problems

Hi all, Just reading this thread as I'm about to open my battery box after successfully removing it from my 2009 i-MiEV following what appears to be another CMU LTC chip failure (see https://www.speakev.com/threads/i-miev-with-failing-battery-another-cmu-ltc-chip-failure.144620/page-2#post-2828186)....

Re: Another i-MiEV Battery Pack Failing...? Help!

Hi All,

I hope this isn't going to put anyone's nose out of joint but I'm moving my tale of woe to speakev due to the very obvious parallels with another thread there... https://www.speakev.com/threads/c-zero- ... 750/page-1. Hopefully see you all there.
