Re: I-miev charging problem/ won't charge

Welcome to the forum, sorry to hear of your charger issue. Unfortunately too many folks have experienced this same exact problem. Most of the time the 20A fuse inside the MCU has blown, and this damages some snubber capacitors or more within the chargger unit. See the troubleshooting thread for deta...

Re: Always on lighter/12v port - Charging battery banks

Aero's suggestion is better than mine, but since you have the wires already laid from the rear to the front: i think the large diameter red wire coming in to the relay panel shown in pictures 10 and 12 of your set has 12V directly from the battery. There is also the 30A fuse #24 underneath the white...

Re: Swapping 2013 for 2012 OBC - Helpful Videos

Looking at the 2013 FSM, they changed the connection layout of the MCU to where the Pack negative is the leftmost terminal and Positive is between that and the 3 phases to the motor. There is still a 20A fuse in the MCU on the Positive line. Maybe this 2013 MCU diagram will help. i think CHGP is lik...

Re: Swapping 2013 for 2012 OBC - Helpful Videos

The red (or pink) wire inside the 2012 OBC is the positive HV output. The blue wire is the negative. The blue wire will be routed to the rightmost terminal lug in the MCU via a small lug screw in the MCU buss bar. The red wire routes to one end of the MCU fuse, the other end of the fuse goes to a sm...

Re: my 2013 Peugeot iOn will not charge :(

The HV fuse in the MCU and the blue snubber caps in the OBC seem to be the most common symptoms. Your 12V aux appears to be low at 12.2 ocv, so an external charge of that would be recommended if you have that equipment available.

Good luck and let us know what you discover.

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

i've tried digging thru the epoxy on a waffle plate and it is very difficult--likely an impossible repair. Easier to replace the entire plate and even that is not easy. i imagine they mount the plate to the heat sink, then mount the bottom board, then do the soldering in place. Coincidentally i've o...

Blown Diode in the Waffle Plate

This is a continuation of troubleshooting of my failed OBC. Previously i replaced the fuse and the blue snubber caps, but the OBC still would not function--i could plug in the EVVSE to get AC mains, the fan would come on and relays would click, then after ~15 seconds it would turn off the EVSE and t...

Re: Is my battery dying ?

According to user piev, all cell failures are due to a lack of electrolyte. He has studied numerous technical papers looking at cell life factors and boiled it down to this simple conclusion. These battery cells operate by reversible chemical and electrochemical reactions involving the anode, the ca...
