Re: my 2013 Peugeot iOn will not charge :(

Fingers crossed it holds. :D

Did you decide to leave the caps exposed or re-pot them ?

I presume the potting is there to keep them still under vibration so if they're not re-potted a blob of glue from the body to the nearby frame might be a good idea..

Ta :-)

I used some squirty silicone conformal coating - though not as deep as the black stuff that was there before.
Not sure I understand why that area is potted, but there are other capacitors on the same board completely exposed.
Could it be a high voltage area?
I may open it up again and get busy with a hot glue gun ;-)

i think the primary function of the potted regions, which i sometimes refer to as a doghouse (slang derivative of daughter board, box or housing), are to provide a thermal transfer path for the components within the fence.

Seems like same charge cable/EVSE as mine.

Mine will not always charge and I suspect the intake cable is broken. But how do I get of the wires without damage the rubber protection in the intake?

I can't get to that link without a login, and my Norwegian isn't good enough for me to register for a userid.
There must be a way to take these apart and get them back together without breaking them, but I don't know how.
Maybe someone else on here has?
