Re: Car won't start after storage

Weird how so many things were showing up totally messed up in CanIon on my device, but showed up properly on yours!

Yep, clearly, that one cell is an issue!

Re: Car won't start after storage

I did press the accelerator pedal down and up a number of times, as it was a nice way to see that I was getting correct and current information streaming live from the car to the bluetooth adapter and phone. (The accelerator position would vary in real-time on the phone.) The "Wh/km History&quo...

Re: Car won't start after storage

Yep, lots of numbers were out of whack, or completely out of their possible range. So, I would imagine that would mean one of the computers is not working right, or one cell being so messed up that it's really funking up other things. On CanIon, the cell voltages were not displayed at all. That's th...

Re: Car won't start after storage

I got to stop over and take a look at this car today with my ODBLinkMX bluetooth adapter and cheap LG Android phone running CanIon138. http://300mpg.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/IMG_0485-640x480.jpg First thing we did was check the 12V batteries, both the original flooded iMiEV 12V battery and the...

Re: Car won't start after storage

Hi karellen. Please check your private messages. I just sent you one. I live about an hour from Madison and could probably help you. I have a good multimeter, battery load tester, ODBII device for the iMiEV and a couple other tools that would be handy to see if we can figure out what's wrong with yo...

Re: What to do with my dead iMiEV?

The charging ports are gasketed. Both were in perfect condition. No corrosion at all.

I'm not sure how high flood-water got. It got high enough to get sediment in the headlights and for water to get into the battery, which I think it does through the front air vents.

Re: What to do with my dead iMiEV?

I almost forgot. Two great parts that were in perfect condition were the J1772 and CHAdeMO charging ports. I pulled the J1772 off and built a power adapter from it for my motorcycle. http://300mpg.org/2015/03/31/the-diy-j1772-charging-adapter/ The CHAdeMO port is still on the car, and likely the mos...

What to do with my dead iMiEV?

Hi Folks, As some of you may recall, I have a raspberry iMiEV which I had purchased through an auto auction with "Water Damage". It turned out that the car only had 50 miles on it, but it was at the Staten Island Mitsubishi dealership when SuperStorm Sandy came through. I did a little work...

Re: iMiEV as workhorse

Great, now I REALLY want to mount my "Solar Death Ray" to my iMiev hitch to make a solar cooker for tailgating.
