Nice hacking info .. much appreciatedRoy13 wrote:...
I also discovered if you remove Fuse 14 & 15 you can drive in full EV mode as the petrol motor cannot start. It will run for 30sec in it's prime stage but not start or try again. If like me you were thinking of putting a switch in these fuses once there back in you have to cycle the ignition for the petrol engine to start again. Sorry i know there are many question based around this but these were my preliminary findings.
I did try the fuse pull removal (can't recall which, but it was the one for the fuel pomp) ... what I did notice back then was:
1- It did work fine on 1st usage ... ICE try to start, get an error on dash .. and run in EV mode without problem.
2 - On next, or one of the following start up, while keeping off he fuse ... the ICE try to start up all the time ... I could drive fine in EV mode ... but not nice to have a engine that try to start and fail every second
3 - After put back the fuse ... for some reason the car did want to consume all the fuel due to the "old fuel" .. problem solved by disconnecting the battery
So ... while driving in EV mode is nice without the fuse on ... I'm wondering if removing both the fuse not only the fuel pump is disabled, but as well the attempt to start the engine.
Ideally .. it would be nice to send the error code that ICE has problem .. and keeping the fuse in place
I was also thinking to add a switch instead of a fuse .. I got a simple 12v switch with 433Mhz controller ... but ... I don't know where to source 12v inside the fuse box (but maybe I did not search much on it)
It would be nice to have some OBD2 codes which could be send to the PHEV for disable the ICE to start and maybe remap some battery parameters too
