Re: Weird charging problem

to kpetrov: I have mentioned this problem to my local dealer, and they refused to do any further troubleshooting and just saying it is normal. How should I convince them to do the solution you mentioned? BTW, what is 'Traction battery reset, smoothing and DBCAM"? It is even in the service calendar:...

Re: Weird charging problem

There are a lot of discussion regarding this issue here and on facebook PHEV groups.
From all I have learned apparently the BMU is forcing the engine to start.
Traction battery reset, smoothing and DBCAM is solving the problem.

Re: Best economy for motorway drive

Option A is equivalent to option B but not charge to full. Charge from 0 to 30-40%. Rinse and repeat. The goal is to be in parallel mode once the engine is working and low state of charge. Simply there aren't any other more economical options beside parallel mode once the engine is running. Has to b...

Re: Advice for a long drive

So, is there a 1 to 1 relationship between the engine speed and the car speed? Or is there a "transmission" in the front axle which converts engine RPM to wheel power? Once in parallel mode (orange arrow between engine and wheels) there is a fixed direct relationship between engine speed and car sp...

Re: Advice for a long drive

Don't forget that the charging gets less efficient as the battery gets above 60%, so the ICE might not be able to run in its most efficient envelope. So I do much the same as you, except that I switch to SAVE if the battery gets too full. I agree that the battery takes less charge as it gets full, ...

Re: Advice for a long drive

Yep, it is odd. It's and that the same vehicles have a problem with ICE kicking in all the time when temperatures drop. From what I know so far the problem is resolved after battery reset, smoothing and DBCAM procedure. Anyway, this problem made my vehicle perfect to test the difference between para...

Re: Advice for a long drive

If you use SAVE, be sure that it engages parallel mode. My do not and keeps the vehicle in series mode which is a waste. The driver has no direct control over which mode is in use, it's decided by the car's electronics. Parallel mode uses a direct drive from the engine to the front wheels, and so i...

Re: Triple Procedure & Setup (Costs around 80USD)

I know this is an old discussion but new owner and want to perform this procedure. But how does one go about getting the drivers for the mut-3 software. I saw in an older post about sending money to a PayPal account. Write to this guy: https://www.facebook.com/people/Nikolay-Fadeev/100004317961322/

Re: Triple Procedure & Setup (Costs around 80USD)

First I have tried MMCodingWriter with my old chinese Bluetooth ELM327 OBD adapter without success. Bought chinese Tactrix Openport2 adapter, downloaded the driver for it from https://www.tactrix.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=category&layout=blog&id=38&Itemid=61 and MMCodingWriter connected ...
