Kenny, thanks for your reply; much appreciated.
Did the mechanics use a MUT 3 tool (or the Citrogen equivalent) to diagnose the problems? If so what were the diagnostic trouble codes did they
read that were stored in the EV-ECU?
Not sure, will find out and get back to you.
i don't know about the C-zero in detail, but i would think it similar to the i_Miev.
Its the same car with a different badge, expect technically identical.
Those two high voltage loads (heater and compressor) have connectors which can be opened to isolate them from the battery pack. If those devices were broken or the cause of the issue, then the car should go to READY when disconnected.
Useful to know, will see if the garage can ascertain if there are broken.
The Chademo charging function requires the air conditioning compressor in order to cool the battery pack, but regular charging should work without the compressor.
Interesting; every time the car is plugged in a battery fan whirs into action and we use the regular (old / slow / low power) UK, not the Chademo.
i'm not aware that the heater is required for the battery pack.
Okay, think you know this better than me
- useful to know.
With such low mileage--do you know if the 12V Aux battery is the original one of the car from new, or has it been replaced? A weak, worn out and old 12V battery will cause issues with the operation of the High Voltage systems such as you have experienced. In some cases just replacing the 12V has solved the issues.
Thanks - my first response to the car fail was to trickle charge that battery, but I confess I don't know how old it is / likely its original. I will ask the garage to switch it out for a fresh one...
