Re: Fuel gauge vs tortoise

I recall a post by ikiev, may be in the OBC trouble-shooting thread, with a reference to a user-manual page, saying that it's not recommended to disconnect the aux for over a month. If so, the computer has to be re-learn, something about the pack status.

Re: Life with Chevy Bolt EV

We have 2x 2017-Boltev and have been quite happy with them...knock-on-wood. In fact, it's the 2016 Volt that is giving us grief, the center screen display has gone dark and at >60kmiles, it's out of warranty. Stealer wants ~$1500 to "try" replacing the HMI (Human Machine Interface). I fail...

Re: Care and Feeding of the OBC/dc-dc

... 3) Cutting AC power off at the power point instead of through EVSE or leaving to fully charge. My main concern is point 3. No one would design an AC charger that is not tolerant to power cut offs at the source. Surely? From the poll thread , the majority of owners who reported failures explicit...

Re: my 2013 Peugeot iOn will not charge :(

... The reason i believe the MCU fuse mechanically fails first is that there is a smaller 20A fuse on the OBC output between the snubber caps and the MCU fuse, which has never blown in anyone's OBC or MCU fuse failure . Over time, the shock and vibrations while driving caused mechanical fatigue of ...

Re: Wallbox Quasar or other bi-directional chademo

wonder how the BMS activation work ? charging is just the standard Chamedo protocol, but pulling from the pack is normally handled through the motor drive circuitry. If BMS info is being passed through the Chamedo, then I guess the BMS can be external to the iMiev. I've been thinking about this off ...

Re: The last new i-MiEV in the USA?

Re: hobdrayv - and i-MIEV ion zero, show electronic control units, reset errors

https://ibb.co/1JHGtQS On the screen, a value of 39.5Ah means that this option is available taking into account WWB degradation. What the dashboard shows (89.5% and 91.5%) corresponds to a capacity of 35.3 Ah. 35.3Ah = 89.5% - the remainder of the charge. 89.5% corresponds to the dashboard. 91.5% c...

Re: hobdrayv - and i-MIEV ion zero, show electronic control units, reset errors

Hobdrive BMU screen has 2 displays for Ah. The first one is the same value as Canion display, which I've always interpret as pack max estimated capacity. Canion's Ah history shows the default built-in Ah decline over time. The 2nd Ah value seems to be current pack capacity, as it varies with SOC. S...
