Thanks for the other method on page 1.

But you didn't say if your car has had regular services from Mitsubishi, and presumably updates that other cars may not have had?

Yes, considering that at each service, the garage normally make all the possible firmware update , it is possibly relevant.

My car had the last service 10 months ago.

Still this bug in the firmware which cause a BMU reset, I believe has not connected to a firmware update.

I also doubt that more recent Mitsubishi firmware could have correct this issue

It is possible that they might fix this, now that this method is "known" ... but maybe even not .. at the end people can still make a reset using a 20$ cable and 60$ driver from russia

Thanks.

Maybe you had success because yours has had updates.

Easily settled if other non updated users give feedback.

I'd be grateful if you gave links to a known to work adapter and software.

Based on the feedback from people which manage to reset the BMU with a "tricky procedure" (now there are multiple variations) .. I doubt that this has to do with a firmware update while the car was serviced ...

Anyhow ... the most "appropriate" way to reset the BMU , via cable and software can be find here : viewtopic.php?f=10&t=4533

Is a BMU reset more likely to benefit an ex company car that has rarely been charged or one with a battery that is frequently charged from the mains?

The question is: does the battery degrade (SoH display) faster on an ex company car that has rarely been charged or one with a battery that is frequently charged from the mains?

The situation that caused the faster 'degradation' should benefit more if there really is a benefit, which is not proven over a longer term.

I am the opinion that the displayed SoH does not reflect the true capacity of the battery as it seems to be a calculated and not measured value.

Many thanks for the link to the adapter etc.
I'll give the short method some more tries but can see me doing it the software way.

Finally reset the BMU today!
I tried every variation of the Lindqvist method that has been posted but couldn't get it to work.
I just tried the "D-Method" and it worked.
I have a 2018 North American model.
Was still tricky getting the timing to work when connecting the 12v. Had to try three times. But the clicking solenoids seem to work slower when the 12v is down at 8v.
Dog says 40 Ah, 105.3% now. :D

The link to the Nikolay Fedeev drivers in "Triple Procedure & Setup" page 1 goes to a PayPal page requesting roubles, no details of what you're buying!

Page 5 has a Fedeev testimonial and some links, one of which is to passthrudriver.

Three choices, one at 3000 roubles is about 55USD, "pass-thru with security keys", is this what is needed?

I changed the currency to USD, entered 60, and wrote what I needed in the "message to recipient" area. Nikolay then replied couple hours later to the email address associated with my Paypal account.

Thanks for that insight.

I'm guessing that there's a page previous to that giving details of the item and prices, do you have a link to that please?
