Is the charge level/timer, climate control timer etc all still programmable on the replacement head unit?
No. I guess that's why he is intending on using a OVMS module.

Re: iMiEV charging, J1772 testing

Ah thanks for the photos. Yes agreed. With my 2010 I-Miev it didn't have pilot signal pin fitted. So I did it myself a bit sneakily. I purchased the J1772 to 15A adaptor from Gelco and used the spare pin in the connector and added into my J1772 car harness with a 1N4148 diode and 882 Ohm resistor. ...

Re: iMiEV charging, J1772 testing

2011 onwards I-Miev have a separate control box mounted on top of the AC charger. I suspect that does the PWM charge current control and in turn sends commands to the AC charger below it. Do you mean the black box on top in this photo? UfhaIA2.jpg It's an AC filter box. This is what is inside it: J...

Because they don't want a tesla burning to the ground in front of one of their charges because it wasn't repaired properly.

No active battery management in a 2020MY EV in Australia is just about inexcusable in my opinion. But in saying that the Gen 1 is a great drive especially on the highway.
