Re: Dead C-zero after only 6 years and 21k miles :(

Did they test the 12V aux battery under load according to the method of the Factory Service Manual, FSM? Just putting a voltmeter to it won't reveal the condition. Have a look at post #2 of the OBC troubleshooting thread for information about testing the 12V aux, http://myimiev.com/forum/viewtopic....

Re: i-MiEV Cuts Out After Hitting Bump

Thank you all for your suggestions. So, my friend cleaned up the 12v battery terminals and reseated all the fuses and removed a bunch of junk off his wife's keychain and we'll see what happens before proceeding with phb10186's suggestions ... so far, no news is good news. Joe - I should probably ad...

My IMIEV (which is a less common 'Keiko' spec with brown seats, dash and trimmed door cards, chrome touches and so on) My Parents IMIEV (which actually drives a bit different to mine, even though a 2012 also, quite a lot of spec differences, but feels slightly quicker off the mark, though an earlier...

Re: i-MiEV Cuts Out After Hitting Bump

I had an issue with the battery on the Imiev just like this when I stuck an old (but still good) Insight Gen2 battery in the IMIEV when the original IMIEV one was toast. I had to use terminal adaptors, as the Imiev battery has the larger type 12v battery terminals, while the Honda (same battery othe...

Re: replace 8 pack cells and bms

Can you not use the existing board and just replace the cells, or are you sure the board has gone?

Re: Pics: New '17/18 interior, 2DIN and paddles (!)

Interesting the European brochure is in English - but no sign of the IMIEV listed on the UK Mitsubishi website, though you can still buy a 2018 Citroen C-Zero and Peugeot Ion... in 2017 they registered 5 and 8 of each respectively by the looks of it... and no IMIEVs. As for the 160Km range, that's t...

CHAdeMO flap release not working

I noticed that this is now not opening via the release lever by the drivers seat (RHD) (and from other cars I have had, this tends to be due to a fault on the pin at the flap end). I am going to have to pull the inside trim off and have a look - does anyone know if there is a manual override release...

Re: Is my battery dying ?

I dont disagree with the data, but seems unlikely that two cells would weaken at the same time... though I do understand your concerns. I would want to do the cell balancing procedure and repeat this test a couple more times and keep an eye on those two cells. What "cell balancing procedure&qu...
