Re: FS - 2011 imiev - $17k - Perth WA

To expand on Joseph's post. Both are screenshots from android apps that connect to the car via a bluetooth obd dongle. They are not accessible from the car itself. My impression is that the Canion is very picky about what bluetooth dongle is required, even with a recommended dongle it wouldn't stay ...

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

I have the i-MiEV back! Still nice to drive. Paceway have serviced it and cleaned it up nicely to make up for the 7 months in their yard. Unfortunately my wife has moved on to another car, and we don't really have space for 3 cars so I now need to sell it. I asked about the replaced charger, but the...

Re: Total Cost of Ownership - ICE and EV

Leaf has lost $32,000 and Pulsar has lost only $17,000. But the Leaf looks good in percentage terms. I think the drop from the new price (how many actually paid that much) which reflects to some degree the cost of making them, to the second hand market price is quite big, but from there on the decli...

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

It's under warranty, no charge, so I figure they are entitled to keep it if they want to. But if it is just going in the bin, I'd be happy to "dispose" of it for them.

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

Paceway just called and said our i-MIEV is fixed and charging with no errors. Very happy to hear it. They say will do a few more checks and test drive so we should get it back early next week.

I'll ask again whether I can keep the failed charger when picking it up (if they even still have it).

Re: PHEV Loss of Km Range with Battery.

Someone just listed a PHEV on carsales with 200,000km on it. I wonder how the battery is going on that one.

They said they want to hang onto it. They have provided us with a near new (but not EV) ASX loan car, so can't really complain.

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

We may be nearing a resolution. Paceway say they have narrowed down the issue to a wiring concern. They say they have performed a dummy fix and seems to be all good, but still another few weeks wait for the proper replacement parts.

Re: Aftermarket iMiEV battery upgrade project

Someone did apparently get an i-MiEV running with two stock batteries at once - might actually be practical in a Minicab.
I think they had two stock BMS installed as well, so may not offer much insight as to how it would react to bigger cells.

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

I have found that they are still able to drive it in and out of the workshop, so seems to be still the original problem of no charging.

Latest update is Mitsubishi Aust have asked them to go through about 5 pages of tests checks and send the results, and they won't give me a copy of said results.

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

More so because it is not under the factory warranty, they are doing it as 'goodwill' warranty, which might make it harder to outsource.

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

Yes, I have thought about it. Stuck with Paceway because they are doing it under warranty so "free" but I suspect I have paid about $500 in rego and insurance for a car I can't use for 6 months now. Not even quite sure what the process would be to get it back when they have put in a $4000 charger bu...

Unfortunately swapping the EV-ECU didn't fix it. Paceway going back to 'technical' for another idea.

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

Paceway have now done all their diagnostics and say it points to a problem with the EV-ECU which they want to replace as the next step. They are currently working out whether they want me to pay for that or not. I'm a bit worried that it is not actually the problem, and will result in another couple...

Re: EV Buyers Guide – choosing an EV type that suits you

I forgot to mention my 3rd motor vehicle. I would really like to have an electric motorbike. This only needs about 50km range but needs to do that at 100kph as it would mainly be used for a freeway commute. Also needs to be fun to ride and accellerate similar to KTM 390 in the 0-60kph range.

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

They say they have checked the fuse and it is OK, working through 3 pages of manual checklists and getting external assistance, devoting tomorrow just to our car.
What happens if they can't fix it?
