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

Hi Stan051, welcome to the forum. I presume you have access to the i-MiEV manual? http://myimiev.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=2802 For example, DTCP1A2B is called a Three-phase Line Error and is discussed starting on page 54D-448, although judging by your questions it sounds as though you're a...

Re: Hi a new guy here - some general questions

Rust and battery removal: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kmg0ucfCCyo&feature=youtu.be Wonderful to be able to keep the i-MiEV on the road! Inasmuch as I am totally clueless when it comes to rust repairs, I'm curious what the labor-hour content would be for an operation such as this?

Re: Help, my MIEV just died! I think it’s 12V battery

...Please tell me it’s the little 12V battery! Please! Yes, it''s most probably your 12v battery. Attach a smart charger directly onto the battery terminals. Even a small smart float charger will work, but if you do that then leave it attached for a day or so. If you have a voltmeter, measure the 1...

Re: Battery Problem - Turtle With Several Bars Left

Hello Rémy, and welcome to the forum. The first step in understanding your battery is to measure it. To do that you need a OBDLink LX or MX or MX+ Bluetooth adapter which plugs into the car's OBDII connector, an Android phone or tablet with Bluetooth, and an app such as CaniOn or hobdrive. Your car ...

Re: Charging two i-Mievs

Programming the EVSE Upgrade.com modified EVSE Looking at the face of the J1772 plug you'll see three large sockets and two small ones. Plug in the EVSE . Get a paperclip and bend it so that it straddles (shorts out) the two small sockets. When you do that, the EVSE red ("Fault") light fl...

Re: 12v Battery - All You Ever Wanted To Know

With many of us sequestered and cars sitting idle, I'd just like to remind everyone to remember their 12v battery and activate the car every few days or else attach a float charger directly onto the 12v battery. For the last six weeks my i-MiEV hasn't left home except to drive the garbage cans down ...

Re: using a Lev50 pack for solar

Hi, there maybe several ways to solve this solar installation, for my part I dismounted the battery pack from an Imiev to rearrange it as a 28V pack for use in a cabin, my installation is explained in another forum: https://secondlifestorage.com/showthread.php?tid=6319&highlight=Toubab Toubab, ...

Re: Automatic Brake Lights

Andrew, thanks for the links, especially the latest info about measuring Tesla's response time. About the same time delay as a driver moving foot from accelerator to brake? Not surprised that damping is needed to smooth out the bumps (pun intended). BTW, we had talked a bit about this quite a few ye...

Re: Global Warming's Terrifying New Math

I'm old enough to remember when 350ppm was the target max - https://www.esrl.noaa.gov/gmd/webdata/ccgg/trends/co2_data_mlo.png The good news is that the very recent curtailment of vehicle and air travel due to the pandemic is already having measurable results. For example - https://www.nationalgeogr...
