Re: 12v battery death

Also check the sunshade mirror light, should go off automatically but you only know if you check. Installing a dashcam can be a real PITA with this car. In my case the dashcam switches off after 20 minutes after I park and it it detects no motion. But the step down converter from 12v to 5V (USB plug...

Re: Pure Electric Vehicle Mod - Hack. Stop ICE (engine) kick-in (heating acceleration & cold).

If ICE power is required the vehicle should be stopped, turned off and on again with Modification disabled.)/quote] While I usually like mods I would not recommend this to anybody for above reason. Are you sure the vehicle has to be turned off to enable the relay again? BTW this vehicle is not adve...

Re: Can we clear up Serial vs Parallel drive?

I am driving a late 2014 model so what I write may not be applicable to the newer models mentioned here. Also the ICE must have been running about one minute before it will switch to parallel mode. As I mostly (99% of the time) drive in EV mode I am weary about demanding a lot of power/revs from a c...

Re: Fuel Stabilizer

Ha Ha, we needed a spammer to get some proper info to this question. I agree about the battery removal, which would be similar to leaving the lights on over night or something, that it can never invalidate warranty. I know it took 6 months after I tried the Lynquist method (leaving AUX battery disco...

Re: Considering the Outlander PHEV anyone got one?

A question, though: the current owner complains that it is hard to get the Outlander to drive in EV alone, it tends to turn the ICE on when going up a hill or accelerating too fast and then does not seem to easily switch back to EV mode- any tricks for how to accomplish this? Even in EV Eco mode it...

Re: Considering the Outlander PHEV anyone got one?

Thanks MadTechNutter, sounds like there are at least 2 of us left in this world! How about the rest of the Outlander, you mention it is heavy but does it serve well given what it is? It serves me very well. IMO it is the only 'EV' that you can use in Australia as EVs are not popular and definitely ...

Re: Mitsubishi Australia will not sell a workshop manual to me.

PDF files and viewers have fantastic ways of navigation too. I found this online version that is currently working with images: http://mmc-manuals.ru/manuals/outlander_phev/online/Service_Manual_2014/2019/index_M1.htm ...so it can be used more conveniently across all platforms with a tablet or somet...

Re: Considering the Outlander PHEV anyone got one?

I am also considering an Outlander PHEV, I have a Leaf with the 62 KW battery so EV is not new, but a couple of questions and thanks in advance since this hybrid battery is new to me: if we get this 2018 PHEV, does the battery charging self-regulate or should we be careful not to charge to 100% mos...

Re: D-Method on really stubborn cars or the A-Method :)

Well, it has been a little over a year since I started this thread and 'resetted' my BMU with this method and I can clearly say I have not regretted it one bit. I still have 35Ah SoH. Considering I came from 29Ah I could be looking at 26Ah if I had not done this and the car would be a total dud for ...
