Is there a full list of i-MiEV DTCs somewhere?
I can't find anything about that error either, I can only assume it's a result of turning the car on with the high voltage leads disconnected or similar, and that it will hopefully go away when everything is reconnected and codes cleared.Simon et al,
Thanks v much for the input, most encouraging I agree.
Any thoughts about the 'BAT-LIN Slave Error'? I can't find any reference to it on the web or the service manual.
Diagbox definitely doesn't work with i-Miev's, so it's interesting to hear that the MUT-III works with the Ion/C-Zero, as that provides a possible route to renumber CMU's if it turns out that Diagbox can't do it. (The feature sets of the two tools don't fully overlap)Just one point before I move on... I originally owned an iOn which is why I bought my Chinese clone MUT3 (for about £300 IIRC) and it worked fine on it... just the same as on this i-MiEV. I don't know what the Diagbox costs as I have not had any thing to do with one...
You might get away with not connecting the Chademo port HV leads as the car won't have any way to detect that if you're not chademo charging, but I would definitely connect the two front cables for the A/C and heater as not only do you need the heater for a load to discharge the battery for the capacity measurement, the heater and AC both have Canbus data lines that will report fault codes if they don't detect the high voltage being present when it should be.I think it would be worth conncting the pack HV leads; inverter/AC charger, A/C pump and heater as the latter 2 are (I gather) used for the battery capacity measurement procedure, but not CHAdeMO port.
Are you going to fit the replacement cell first ? If that one cell is faulty and low in capacity the pack capacity measurement will be reporting the capacity of the weakest cell in the pack - the faulty one. So I'm not sure how useful that would be.At thispoint I'll see if the car goes to 'Ready' and/or if it will charge (just enough to see if it works) as without those I won't have made any progress, really.
If they work OK, I'll then have a look at the 'Battery Maintenance Function' to see what's in there (I think I did before what it did not look interesting/helpful so I ignored it). I'll then try the battery capacity measuring proceedure, 'Ready' and then 'Action' and repoert back.
Yep, on Google.Is there a full list of i-MiEV DTCs somewhere?
Sorry I forgot all about that i-Miev manual. It's the best online service and data reference for the i-Miev and clones - most info you'll need you should be able to find in there, although I find it a bit cumbersome to search through to find things.
Yes. I'm guessing certain types of DTCs will cause this - possibly any DTC. The flashing dipped beam light is proably not CAN-related and will clear when I put the headlights back in after a bit of bodywork.Do you have the yellow dash exclamation mark when NOT charging.
