I believe this got solved with a software update. I suspect the 30kWh leaf had the same bug as the outlander PHEV in that the BMS artificially degrades the battery too fast.

Did you end up looking at that water proofing membrane?
Or did you come up with a different solution?

Re: E-Moto battery connectors melting....

Anderson plugs are probably the easiest to get a hold of, ask any automotive shop. 1 Anderson plug for the 2 larger pins and a second plug for the smaller wires (or keep the original plug for them, and just add a plug for the main power).
How much room do you have to work with?

Re: Charging and discharching features

Is it correct all EVs are able to be plugged and charged by home power in garage? Yes, but only relatively slowly (around 10-15km of range recovered per hour). If you want to charge faster you need to install a larger cabling, power point/ EVSE etc. I also like to use EV battery as a mobile battery...

Re: Theft Alarm (false alarm?) on Kona

I've had alot of people complain about cats jumping on cars causing alarms to go off, not sure if the Kona has shock sensors though also a hard object tapping on the glass (like a key) can set off some alarms. Sometimes either deep in the menu or with the use of a scan tool you can get a report back...

Re: Hello from Perth

If I were to do the moke again I would definitely go that way about it. I think either an imiev/outlander motor or a motor from a Prius wouldn't have been a better way to go. The gearbox is just too noisy and I wish had gotten rid of it.

So rather than a motor issue I think its an alignment issue with the reduction gear or chassis that is putting pressure on the drive shaft causing the bearing to fail. Back to the shop.

I find Google translate works well for decoding Japanese writing. I use it at work quite a bit for reading Japanese fuse box covers. It even translates on the fly between the camera and your phone/tablet screen and overlays the English translation on the actual video. https://play.google.com/store/a...
