I have owned a PHEV since 2015, just found this forum. Hi everyone!

Forgot to say I am in Sydney
Welcome, I'm up Gosford way.
How is your SOH, and have you had your battery replaced?

Re: New owner impressions

Having to press fifteen button combinations just before you set off might not be a hardship but it's still something that software could have solved prior to release. Yep we all hear you - ECO, AVAS off, B5 click click click. Why not just remember my settings from last time? There was a guy here in...

Re: PHEV driven without keys!

I have similar problem with diving where waterproofing keys is even more challenging than surfing or canoeing due to the pressure. I tried a lockbox in the car boot but the car still detects the key presence. Interestingly I found wrapping the keys in tin foil does work and the car no longer detect...

If that's the case the that sucks.
Actually it is electric, so you might be in luck -

There is no servo/actuator on the PHEV steering (just passive steering angle), so I guess you will be adding one to achieve that?

Re: Evbatmon and Phev watchdog is showing the wrong SOH amou

Lets just look at that Percentage of Manufactured Capacity wording. To me it looks like he is writing about Mitsubishi's (or GS Yuasa's) Manufactured Capacity. Well Mitsubishi have been telling us for years that the drive battery rated Manufactured Capacity used in the PHEV is 40 Ah and NOT 38 AH t...

Re: Evbatmon and Phev watchdog is showing the wrong SOH amou

Anko, so because you, and I think probably Jeremy and Daniel who make the apps, believe that 38 Ah is 100 % SOH and not what Mitsubishi state we should use ie 40 Ah, to me that sounds presumptuous of you three to start your own definition of how the SOH should be measured IMHO. Trex, while I get wh...

Re: Drive battery degradation and replacement.

Not sure I agree with the last part. The ICE start is triggered by the BMU when the SoC reaches a certain level. But that level is derived by the BMU from its current notion of SoH. ISo, the BMU would be learning from itself ... Ah true, I see what you mean, hopefully the SOH would not diverge too ...

Re: Drive battery degradation and replacement.

When the battery is regularly charged using A/C chargers, the BMU wil lget a change to recalibrate itself and overrule the pre-programmed degradation params. I agree with anko, and further I have observed that running the battery from completely full down to the point where the ICE cuts in (rather ...
