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

Is VIN locking an issue with the electronics in recent model non-EV cars? im not exactly sure, but i would image it happens to things like engine ECU components also, initial timeline for our replacement was August! bugger, but friday arvo, was told by the service manager, it will now be June 7th. ...

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

Could you boys do a wonderful service and attempt to find out which of the new ev's coming onto the market have this vin locking, or similar thing? Please. Pretty please ?? It is very important. We should decide not to buy any model with this sort of anti-competitive approach. I thought modern corp...

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

If you look in the myimiev forum there are a few owners with Mut 3 devices. I believe they are available for well south of $1k however be sure to get one that someone has used on a iMiEV. I seem to remember someone from AEVA in WA has a Mut 3, not that its probably any use to you in NSW however the...

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

Took the i-miev to Mitsubishi today to pay them to get the error codes, and yes, there are 26 errors, and the technicians still have no idea what they mean, so the car is still there, the bad part is, YES, i-miev parts ARE VIN locked, as are Outlander PHEV EV components.. fantastic..

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

yeah, i read that thread on the French I-miev page, but cannot find any evidence that this is the case with i-miev parts. its the only place i can find anything about that. but if the only problem is a fuse, or failed resistor, it might be a quick cheap fix

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

After a bit more research, we are obviously not the only ones with this issue, but a French Canadian had a similar issue, but Mitsubishi there had a more technically minded tech, and diagnosed a blown fuse in the main charging inverter, a $19USD part and 3 hrs labour to replace. http://myimiev.com/f...
