I successfully installed the Quidzel HOD module today and programmed it. Works well. You can read about here. http://www.mybmwi3.com/forum/viewtopic. ... 361#p47361. Possibly the first BMW i3 in Australia with a functioning Traffic Jam Assist. :D :D :D

Hi Jin, You can do a wiring check by measuring resistance using a ohmmeter. Looking at your J1772 plug measure the resistance: 1. Between the Proximity Detection pin (LHS) and Equipment Ground pin (without pushing button in) - 150 ohms 2. Between the Proximity Detection pin (LHS) and Equipment Groun...

Hi Jin, There is someone on www.plugshare.com who is using a type 2 to type 1 adapter cable on a Tesla charger to charge a 2013 Nissan Leaf at Supercheap Auto at Penrith and it works.

Re: Charging your non-Tesla EV from a Tesla charger

I just charged up at Rouse Hill Town Centre car park https://www.plugshare.com/location/17075 on a Tesla charger. Worked ok.

Re: Tesla HPWC adaptor >J1772

The installing electricians of the Tesla chargers would not have a clue about any dip switch setting for legacy mode I suspect that they all not set for legacy mode. But it seems that BMW i3 is compatible with non-legacy mode.

Re: Tesla HPWC adaptor >J1772

If that does not work you may want to look at getting a Teslanything.
Also try pushing the button on your j1772 plug for about 5 seconds when you plug it in to your leaf.

Monitoring charge power, kWh on your BMW i3

Want to know if anyone has been able to monitor their charge power (kW) and energy (kWh) on their BMW i3. Preferably using the OBD2 port so monitoring can be done when using a fast DC charger.

Re: Charging your non-Tesla EV from a Tesla charger

Maybe but I would have expected the Tesla charger LED to blink if it had a fault.
I tested my adapter cable at Stanhope village shopping centre yesterday and it worked ok. https://www.plugshare.com/location/137108

It could well be that the mains power is too low....
It does not make any sense. The Tesla destination charger is rated for 32 amps, three phase as marked on the rating plate.

Re: Tesla HPWC adaptor >J1772

The 220 ohm resistor tells the charging station that you are using a 32 amp cable. Since your GPO is only rated at 15 amps you may want to change the PP resistor value to 1500 ohms. Just to be on the safe side. Assuming you will be using a level 1 EVSE cable to plug into the 15A GPO. 5.000V (no exte...

Setec Power tell me they sell stacks of these adaptors to Norway. They also distribute the same adaptor to www.evseadapters.com.

They sent me a photo of all these adaptors going to Europe
