Re: Exclamation on car warning light

Welcome to the forum. There are several threads where others have posted about having this same sort of issue. Maybe some of this will help you. Since you have canion, How much difference was there between the max and min cells, and how low is the lowest cell when this occurs? The first thing to che...

Re: The aftermarket cell replacement saga

The stud or bolt-thread terminals are standard pitch M8 threads. The studs are lightly held and somewhat loose in position (i.e. rattle around when not connected) but they only have to make a connection when bolted. Don't overtighten the flange nut since the bolts are only held by plastic underneath...

Re: temp sensor and guess o meter

Howdy Thomas, That's an interesting issue that i've never heard before. i don't think we know exactly how the GOM estimates the RR, but it makes sense that external temperature could be a factor. A cold battery doesn't work as well as a warm one. Here is a link to info in the FSM about the range: ht...

Re: Battery Replacement - Lessons Learned

Howdy Docjr, Here is picture showing the voltage of each cell in a fully charged but defective pack. This was generated by using a ScanTool LX OBDII dongle with an android device app called canion. It is discussed on this forum and is a handy tool for about $50 to get an independent look at the cond...

Re: Battery Replacement - Lessons Learned

... showing two bars shy of a full charge after the car quits charging. Is a failure to show all of the bars an indication that one or more cells has failed. Yes it can be an indicator of that, especially if it happens several times. Check to be sure that your 12V aux battery is fresh and full char...

Re: No READY. P1A15 error. Condenser charge timeout.

i think you should be able to do it in your garage fairly easily. The 2 coolant lines will likely be the messy part, then there are two small control connectors, a small connector on the temperature sensor, one big orange connector across the front from the DC/DC, and 5 large wires for HV--two from ...

Re: I would like to set the charge current lower than 5A

It may not be possible to reduce the pulse width any further; it requires a 5% duty cycle for the EV-ECU/OBC to detect that an EVSE is connected and available.

In another thread is a diagram:

Re: The aftermarket cell replacement saga

Thanks for sharing your notes and pictures of doing cell swaps, this is some great work which will help others in the future for sure. The new replacement cells are marked as 42Ah, but it appears that was just a sales and marketing gimmick. They are definitely lesser capacity than the old cells in y...

Re: I would like to set the charge current lower than 5A

Has anyone put a current clamp on the 12V output of the DCDC while charging? i don't know the minimum output current, but 40A at 14.4VDC doesn't seem out of the question to supply power for charging the aux battery, holding relay coils, power to all the ECUs that need to be active, power to IP and o...
