Thanks I will.
Do you know, if a new PEB would program itself automatically, when it is connected the first time or is a manual programming operation necessary?If its not possible to resolve the programming issue then I will sell the car, either with battery or sell the battery separately. I'm not spending 2k on a new PEB then programming it and all the other bits this car needs, its not worth the cost, time and effort with kids, a day job and other projects - i'm waiting for a Peugeot Ion with a popped charger to arrive, tho the good news is i'm nearly done with the battery work on my brother in law's electric moped....
Peter the EV mechanic that I talk to (and who is probably well fed up of me by now!) certainly made it sound like a manual step.Do you know, if a new PEB would program itself automatically, when it is connected the first time or is a manual programming operation necessary?
I'm very late to this fascinating discussion.I've looked online and can see 10mm pentagon bits and 6.3mm but these look to be around 8mm (note: that cheap gauge isn't totally accurate and neither are my fingers...).
I did undo the little torx bolts but its held together by something thats fixed in with those pentagon bolts.
I have little doubt that it could be reprogrammed via the CAN bus, the problem being figuring out the commands, which would be a lot of work, and only worthwhile if this was a common enough problem to be worth spending the time on.Wow, you are so good ! the circuit is the one you already identified ... I wonder if it would be possible to reprogram the VIN with DDT4all on a virgin PEB (the data is read-only when already programmed).
So you had to desolder the chip to modify the VIN with an EPROM programmer? Personally I am lucky to have the old PEB, so I will transfer the chip
If anyone has a spare PEB in any condition ( complete, not burned/corroded inside) I'd really like to get hold of one to take a detailed look at on my Youtube channel. Willing to pay reasonable ( for a non-working unit) price and shipping costs. email me at mike at electricstuff dot co dot ukHello everyone, new on the forum I just discovered this really exciting thread ! My zoe also has a PEB problem and I'd like to replace it with a spare part. Did Mike identify the chip that contains the VIN? Do you think I could transfer the chip from one PEB to another... Thanks for your help !
