Re: my 2013 Peugeot iOn will not charge :(

I finally have some time to look further into this - I have a question - if I’m just going to take a look at the boards in-situ, do I need to drain the cooling system?
I will be removing the left seat and then pulling the service plug.

my 2013 Peugeot iOn will not charge :(

So after having an instance of my car not charging due to the shift display not showing P, which was rectified by giving the shift leader a good ”stir”, I now have a more persistent case of the car being unable to charge (in the UK, so L2 240v charging). Symptoms: Charge seems to initiate as normal,...

Re: Troubleshooting and repair for On-board Charger (OBC), DC-DC Converter

Yes. Look under the back of the car on the left hand side of the gearbox near the driveshaft and you can't miss it - give the pivot points and ball joints for the bowden cable levers a dose of spray grease and it should be fine after working the gear lever from one end to another. Thanks - somethin...

Re: Troubleshooting and repair for On-board Charger (OBC), DC-DC Converter

Another thing I would check is to make sure the gear lever is properly engaging in park mode and doesn't feel "springy". If it doesn't fully engage in park this will cause the P to flash on the dashboard when the key is on and the car also will not charge. I've had that problem before too...

Nice wheels though.

Re: Radio button ilumination

I have a UK Peugeot Ion with exactly that radio - the main radio display is bright and the buttons not lit when the lights are off, and when they are on the main display dims and the buttons light up.
So there's definitely something wrong somewhere with your radio or radio wiring :(

Re: Charging experience in the UK

Some early i-MiEV's in the UK only did mode-1 charging, and used a cable without an EVSE 'brick' - could it be that yours is one of those?

Re: UK iMiEV tyre supplier needed

I recently had a pair of rear tyres fitted by KwikFit mobile - Yokohamas I think, and it looked like other suppliers like ATS, Hi-Q, and National had them too

Re: Fully Charged

back of the envelope calculations, so most likely wildly inaccurate: Extrapolating from the recent Tesla mega battery thing installed in Australia: Dinorwig total capacity 9.1 GWh Tesla Australian mega battery total capacity 129 MWh so it would take around 70 mega battery installations to get to the...

Re: Is my battery dying ?

The car theoretically has a battery warranty until June 2019, however I'm not sure what mileage the warranty is good for - I think it may only be 60k miles, and I will be pushing close to 60k miles by then. I also don't know whether excessive degradation is covered, (say 70%) or whether only outrig...
