Re: Hack DC charging - limit to 30kW

i wonder if the temperature of the pack could be used to throttle back the DC charging current?

For example use some sort of variable voltage to simulate the pack temperature and fake out the BMU.

Re: P1A15 fault on a Peugeot Ion

User Lic had this same error message and there is a thread with lots of good discussion and a few pictures, he replaced it with a used unit but had some VIN issues that may be resolved in the eeprom. http://myimiev.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=4225#p38258 Somebody else had this code, and i thi...

Re: On-Board Charger (OBC) Warranty Extended!

Yes there is a white label on the top cover--lift the cover under the rear carpet to see the OBC on the left and the MCU on the right. The label has the Mits p/n and the Nichicon model number and manu date.

Re: MCU 20A 450VDC fuse investigation

That's a good finding on that reference and the history of the thermal blob. i've been looking at the Laef OBC and it appears that they use a 420VDC 30A SHV27 fuse on the Positive side output. This is classed as an inrush-withstanding type of fuse. The 2012 FSM wiring diagram for the VBC shows it as...

Re: On-Board Charger (OBC) Warranty Extended!

They may give you the old chargger after they get word from corporate office on whether to ship it back to them, or scrap it. Takes about 2 months or more for the scrap list to cycle thru with updates about once a month.

Re: On-Board Charger (OBC) Warranty Extended!

Any chance we could get to see a copy of the Tech Bulletin? The internal OBC codes from the 2012 FSM are the last post on the first page of the troubleshooting thread. 39 is related to incorrect PFC voltage. 209 is not even on the list. Maybe they said P09, as in DTC P0A09? He may have a different f...

Re: Fuse Internal Element Views

i was hoping to obtain several for comparison, e.g. 20,30,40A rated, in the ZXISO style, but only have an OEM PEC 20 and a Littlefuse 30 at this point due to lack of stock in the US distributors. On the PEC drawing there is a call-out for item 7, a small dot or blob of a tin alloy (solder?), which c...

Re: CMU board notes, eprom, cell numbering

Martin probably won't be able to do any testing because he sent me that extra CMU board--that's the board i have been using for this thread and to extract the eeprom data. The label on this board has the following information, so it looks like Mike is right about the byte order. p/n: 9499A795 s/n: 0...

Re: eeprom readout for CMU Board

I can't imagine why they would purposefully duplicate the data in this way. And if the most significant bit was not used in the CMU board (left grounded for example) because they only needed 256 words, you would not expect to find duplicated data in the top 256 words, they should be empty or random...
