Re: iMiev Recall notice

2011+ imievs went back to key method.

Had original rubbish sat nav . I’ve upgraded to AVN 827 GA thanks to reecho.
New sat nav is the reason I’m keeping the Imiev for now.

Has LEV 50 N since I changed the pack in December

Didn’t know that the 2012 has LEV 50 N cells.

Re: A closer look at the volt RCD tripping issue

Up to you to try clipper creek 15 amp
https://www.evolutionaustralia.com.au/p ... table-evse

Which may work 1/4 times and may still even trip the main rcd.

I Stand by my solution to use a wallbox if you want 100% reliability

Re: A closer look at the volt RCD tripping issue

Unfortunately no. The 15 amp clipper creek goes into fault mode and volt doesn’t charge.

Re: A closer look at the volt RCD tripping issue

Lol if you put another rcd in you’ll have 3 rcds in series.

The clipper creek 15 amp showed up with charge fault sometimes with my volt, but would not trip the main RCD.

The voltec GM/Holden 10A EVSE is made by clipper creek.

If key is in acc position, I can press the foot brake and then change out from park, else gearshift is locked in park

2011 will not go info Ready mode unless Imiev is in park with plug out

2011 will not go into ready mode if plug (powered or not) is in

Completely agree with you. Major annoyance and inconvenience, especially for next user. Hence glad I got rid of revolting volt. I’m not an electrician But The issue may be having 2 rcds in series.

Re: A closer look at the volt RCD tripping issue

I have a solution. Buy the smallest wallbox unit you can find. Possibly http://e-station.com.au/ehome/ Try it on condition that if it doesn’t work return it for refund. And wire is up for luggable use. This is what I did. I used a 32 amp wallbox wired for 16 amps for the volt. Jump to this page, 2nd...

Re: A closer look at the volt RCD tripping issue

Hi peter C Personally I believe the fault is endemic on ALL volts. GM doesn’t want to know about it, especially the GM volt forum whose solution is to put EVSE on non GFCI/RCD circuit. There is an earth leakage issue. On the Elektrobay bollards the check engine light shows up on the volt. The Holden...
