Re: Heat pump stopped working, no apparent cause

- NorSoul thanks for the info. Please keep us informed on this. The culprit in this case now seems to be confirmed. There is likely a fault in their software update. I would advise anyone in cold counties to refuse the following update. SA427 PSEV BMS/FATC Logic Improvement More details at BMS softw...

Re: Going on Vacation - Turn Off 12V Battery with Fusebox Switch.

- My second car had an original 2015 12V battery until now. My mistake. I let the car idle during this week's vacation and forgot to turn off the 12V fusebox. Came back and the 12V battery was dead. Jump started from first car and everything was fine, but the 12V battery died again the next morning....

Re: Analysis of a replacement battery.

- After 1 year and 12,500km the replacement battery is still doing really well. Still 0.1% deterioration loss. Here's the winter range at 7C. 197km is also the winter range as measured last March when the battery was new. https://abload.de/img/photo_2020-12-20_12-3akka2.jpg -------------------------...

Re: Does export void warranty?

There is an anecdote about someone from Jordan doing exactly this. They shipped the car back to the United States to get the battery warranty.

Re: Turtle mode while attempting freeway speeds

- How cold was the night? Did you leave the car outside? Below -20C and the battery starts having power issues. Did you buy the car from California. Cars from 'hot' states don't have battery heaters, and do badly in cold winters. I'd still bet this is a bad battery cell, but maybe the cold is an alt...

Re: Turtle mode while attempting freeway speeds

- The probable reason you can't drive fast is because one cell of your battery is really bad. I have had this issue on another EV. In most cases very easy to check. Just find a steep mountain road. A very degraded battery will not be able to accelerate up nor regen down. If your battery is really ba...
