Outlander PHEV "Celltop BMS" units EOI

Post by rhills »

Hi All,

I have recently broken down a battery pack removed from my Outlander PHEV after it was water damaged. I will be rebuilding these into a home battery storage system over the coming month or so.

I have removed the cell-top BMS module from each pack so I now have nine of these going spare. I have no way of checking if any/all are water damaged.

Is there any interest in these? I'd rather send them to someone who could use them than consign them to landfill so if you're interested, they're yours for the cost of postage from Perth.

Cheers,

@brendon_m would you be in a position to do any checking of the units for basic vital signs?

I'm happy enough to split them between you and @T1 Terry but it would be nice not have him pay for postage over to SA, only to find that his were all DOA.

As your workplace is nearby, I could easily drop them in to you for checking.

Cheers,

I guess I could power them up and see if there's any sign of life on the daisy chain terminals that go between the CMUs. I wouldn't be able to read the data but I could see if the processor even boots up.
If you're coming past, drop them in at the workshop, otherwise PM me with what days are convenient and I can swing past on my way home from work to pick them up one evening.

FWIW I'm pretty sure the daisychain terminals on these don't do anything during normal operation, they're only needed if the master BMS decides to trigger the "CMU renumbering" process.

The modules will each come up on their CAN bus and start dumping out cell status data immediately, though.

I pass near your workshop quite regularly, so I can drop them in.

Thanks for the helpful info @projectgus.

Did you ever get time to check these? I'd be curious to know if any/some/all of them were still functional.

The info might also help other Outlander PHEV owners who are unlucky enough to get water inside the traction battery enclosure.

Yes I did, the seemed to power up and there was a voltage on the can terminals. I never checked them with an oscilloscope or tried to extract data but they appear to be ok and all had identical voltages so I'd presume they are all ok. They are just sitting on the end of the smoko table at work, if you still want them @T1 Terry shout out.
