Re: iMiev Tour de Montreal (A loop around Montreal Island)

Hey Joe, I dont know about the 98.5 % also. I did a timed over night charge full charge. In the morning i was in a hurry to start i just noticed it before leaving and took note of it. Canion and the a/b odo were pretty close so i guess that validates canion distance measurements. Below 100 wh/km is ...

iMiev Tour de Montreal (A loop around Montreal Island)

Well I guess I was inspired by Martin taking a long loop trip in his imiev every year. So I decided to to a loop around the island of Montreal. Google maps told me it was about 125-130 km, it was difficult to modify the map to the roads I wanted to take to get an exact distance but it was a good est...

Re: Check engine light on

I experienced this also while measuring the 12 volt loads. At one point while putting an amp meter on the 12 volt battery I think the 12 volt became disconnected while the car was in ready mode and the exclamation point symbol came on. The car ran fine and i used it for months with the light on. I e...

Re: Upgrading the heating system to bioethanol or Diesel fue

My first attempt was a 1500 btu or 440 watt tent heater. The brand was coleman. The only mod i did was add a fan to help move the heat off the heater. The heating plate gets very hot and the temp just above the plate is very hot like it would melt plastic. The fan moved the heat away from the plate ...

Re: Chances of getting a new battery?

Could this possibly be a problem with the brakes binding ? It's easy to check at least.....

Re: Wrecked i-MiEV Battery Pack Discussion

Hey Dani, So I had another look at the online wiring diagrams. In the section:MAIN BATTERY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM The first diagram shows the current sensors in the battery wired to the BMU. There are 4 wires RED GREEN WHITE and BLue on pins 31,32,33,42 of one of the yellow BMU connectors. I guess these ...

Re: Wrecked i-MiEV Battery Pack Discussion

Hey PV1, I wonder how it would work. If you have both packs connected during charge. Doesnt the bms taper the charge current as the battery get to full ? how would that work with two packs if the charge state of each one is different ? Maybe the fuller pack would charge the less full one and things ...

Re: Wrecked i-MiEV Battery Pack Discussion

Hey Dani, Congratulations on the great work and the photos. I assume you are charging the the 2nd pack with an external charger. It looks to me if I understand you correctly that you are able to swap the BMS CAN signals from the internal and external pack and read the voltages from either pack. It's...
