Re: my Miev will not charge

Swapping the EV-ECU did not fix the problem. Not sure what to do next.

Re: my Miev will not charge

Just got a response from Paceway that they can try it, "BUT can’t take any responsibility if it crashes or something as it is not a new unit."

I will get in touch about picking it up.

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

I'll give you a call. I did ask about keeping the old charger and they said I couldn't but I might try again once it is fixed.

Re: my Miev will not charge

Well my wife has vowed not to get an EV again until they are commonplace. Hopefully that is not too far away. Part of our delay was due to the part number of the charger being changed, which supports the idea that maybe the new charger is different. Maybe it does need a new ev-ecu to go with it. The...

Re: my Miev will not charge

Yes, I drove it in there 5 months ago with no problem, but can't confirm if it still drives.
I think someone else had a dealer replace an ECU first when they had a dead charger and it didn't help, so I'm a bit suspicious this is not actually the problem, but they should know better than me.

Re: my Miev will not charge

Paceway (Mitsubishi dealer) have now done all their diagnostics and say it points to a problem with the EV-ECU which they want to replace as the next step. They are currently working out whether they want me to pay for that or not. I'm a bit worried that it is not actually the problem, and will resu...

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

That's interesting. I had to replace the plug on our stock charging cord (2010 one with no EVSE) shortly before the charger failed as it was melting and falling apart. I wonder if issues with the charger might have contributed to that, or issues with the plug might have contributed to the charger is...

Re: my Miev will not charge

Mine is also not working with errors despite the whole charger being replaced by a Mitsubishi dealer. If they manage to fix it I will try to find out what the problem was and post here.

Re: my Miev will not charge

My replacement charger (goodwill warranty) arrived in Perth last monday. The dealer have fitted everything in the car, but say they are having problems with the software still giving errors. I hope it is not too difficult to sort out. They say they are trying to get hold of a paper copy of the manual.

Re: my Miev will not charge

I have neither of those things. However rather than being assertive with the local dealer, who is subject to the policies of Mitsubishi Australia, maybe I should just contact Mistubishi Australia and plead my case? It sounds like you had a good experience with that? As I understand it the dealer pu...
