Re: I-MiEV Main battery cell failure

Yesterday I picked up my i-MiEV with new battery fitted. Total cost was $13,800 and the time out of action 8 weeks, 13 June to 9 August. The car was still under warranty but when Mitsubishi had made no progress on a warranty assessment in three weeks I gave up waiting and ordered a new battery to be...

I-MiEV Main battery cell failure

Rob, After my experience with the MCU warranty claim through Paceway in osborne park I decided to use Daniel at EVshop as my agent. After running battery tests to confirm one bad cell (and another not good) Daniel had some discussion with Paceway and got bad vibes so took it to Wanneroo Mitsubishi t...

I-MiEV Main battery cell failure

Hi doug, I got a quote for a 2012 battery pack last Thursday, $12720.40 inc GST (trade price). My vehicle is still under warranty but Mitsubishi are very slow to do anything about replacing its battery. Its been with a Mitsubishi service shop for 3 weeks with no response. I spoke to Mitsubishi Head ...

I-MiEV Main battery cell failure

The charge is definitely going to completion. Today it seemed to be behaving a tiny bit better. Dropped 4bars on a 20km trip down and up a 200m climb and then charged up to 14 bars and turned off in about 3.5 hours. Final cell voltages were Average 4.101, High 4.105, Low 4.040. SOC 81% and RR 98. I'...

I-MiEV Main battery cell failure

My 2012 i-Miev has just developed a faulty main battery cell. Cell 72 is now consistently about 0.1 volts below the average cell voltage and maximum charge state is now 15 bars, and charging seems to be very slow. The problem only became apparent Sunday morning and I haven't yet determined what the ...

I-MiEV Charge stopped before completion

I got WSmanual with the vehicle on a CD. I had to pay extra to get it. I never managed to install the Mitsubishi software to read it but discovered that if I copied the data files to a memory stick I could read them with a browser. The files need to be on a memory stick so that the file names are no...

I-MiEV Charge stopped before completion

Acmotor, I think you could be right about the power supply causing my charger to stop. I looked through the i-MiEV workshop manual and discovered that the charge voltage limit is 265, error code 6. I have also been observing our supply voltage as displayed on the solar inverter. The voltage is usual...

I-MiEV Charge stopped before completion

I phoned Western Power and they were quite friendly but the person I spoke to was not the technical type so suggested that I send them an email query which I will do. They did tell me that the meter reading is done every 30 minutes, not just bi-monthly as I had expected. Supply voltage could be an i...

I-MiEV Charge stopped before completion

acmotor, Thanks for your thoughts.... >The 'November each year at Darlington' has to be a big clue. >Power quality, temperature, time of day, switching loads at your house or neighbourhood. >Western power transformer tap switching as season changes. I don't know of anything unusual about Darlington ...

I-MiEV Charge stopped before completion

Bladecar, Thanks for your comments. The problem has always occurred when charging from a low value, well under 8 bars, and when it gets over 8 bars after a couple of restarts it will usually go to completion.   But it is a rare problem, only a few times in a bursts every year with no occurrence in t...

I-MiEV MCU failure

I-MiEV MCU failure This problem has been completely resolved under warranty so this report is just for the record. In September 2016 my 2012 i-miev suffered a major failure, almost complete loss of power and motor warning light on.   After a minute or two rest it recovered and I was able to drive on...

I-MiEV Charge stopped before completion

I-MiEV Charge stopped before completion. On a number of occasions charging of my i-MiEV has stopped before completion. Just turning the power off and on restarts the charge but sometimes I have had to do this multiple times before the charge goes to completion.   The fault has occurred in November 2...
