Paceway have now put all the new bits in the car, unfortunately the computer still says no. .
No, as in all warning lights are still illuminated? did they replace the Motor controller fuse as well?

Yay, our replacement charger has arrived, now being fitted by Paceway.

I asked if we could keep the old charger and they said No.
really? did they give a reason? when our Battery ECU was replaced, we were given the old one, had to ask for it though.

Re: i-MiEV not charging, high voltage warning light and battery

And for the good news, it looks like ours is fixed, woot! So, what did we do. Replaced the two caps with new through the hole caps, however these were soldered to the pins with the two pins that were soldered onto the upriser board used for each leg of the caps (i.e. each leg had the two pins). It w...

Re: i-MiEV not charging, high voltage warning light and battery

i finally found that thread last night, i am up to page 5 so far, very very interesting, thank you for the info of the EV ECU, for some reason i have never heard of it, well, i guess it was not a factor in the failure so never looked for it, or come across it on my research until now.

Re: i-MiEV not charging, high voltage warning light and battery

im not sure, i have not heard of an EV ECU yet, thats not to say they dont have one, but mitsubishi replaced our battery ECU, and told us that the DC converter, Battery ECU and Motor controller were all VIN coded. weather that is actually true or not, i cant be sure, as it did come from a service ce...

In short, Yes it is possible. What you need it the WiFi module (obviously), install it (there is a mount for the WiFi module and a seperate mount for the antenna near the window). Once installed, you will need to head to your dealer, however if you know someone with a MUT III device they should be a...

Re: i-miev DC/DC converter failure, not what we expected.

it is, i have asked Greg if i can borrow his portable chedemo to try it later, so see how that goes, another question has arisen, are the 2010 Japanese models 110 Volt or 240? considering the 2010 models were J spec cars imported by mitsubishi, i am 99% sure its 240, but there is that 1% doubt.

Sadly the only Chademo near us is the NRMA charger at Olympic park, if we drive it there, we would need it to work otherwise it gets towed home. we are moving house soon, so we have to get it back together and drive it to our new place with whats left in the battery, still about 75% full. and its a ...

Ok, an update. I think board with the blown resistor has been bonded to the water cooling layer of the DC/DC Converter, it does not appear to want to budge, and I do not want to break it. Possibly it could be attached from underneath, but it does not appear so. We drained the coolant, and then remov...

thats not to good, when we got our 2010, it hadnt been modified to use public J1772 chargers, it has since been modified, a pretty easy 1 hour job, and works fine on public J1772 plugs now. ours also had seriously worn tyres as well, but a quick online search found some suppliers for expected costs ...

i-miev DC/DC converter failure, not what we expected.

Ok, well there's your problem. Anyway, strap in, this is going to be long. So to begin with about a month and a half ago we went to go to the shops in our iMiEV and as we turned out of our street, we noted that the car had not charged fully, and that we had the red 12v battery warning light as well ...
