with the UK configurator now open, and Elon stating that the FSD price rise will happen on May 10th, but not before all configurators are open, then that suggests that the week starting May 6th will be order time. the FSD price rise has already happened on all public orders that are on open configur...

Re: Outlander PHEV Aspire question

yes, you can set the car to pre heat, or cool, when its not plugged in, the car will give you a warning, saying that it might stop if the battery power is not sufficient. i set mine to pre cool every afternoon about 20 mins before i get off work, and have about 5km of range left when i arrive at wor...

Paceway have now put all the new bits in the car, unfortunately the computer still says no. .

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.

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.
