Re: Painting white wheel covers black

I don't know why the tyre place thinks they need special equipment, they don't. The Soul EV has a standard jacking point by each wheel. This can be used with any 2 post lift to lift the whole car, or a floor jack at any one point to lift just that wheel. There isn't much clearance between the jackin...

Re: Bosch charger fried and 2016 will not charge

All the EVSE does is a bunch of monitoring and signalling on low voltage pins before actually just switching on the main power lines. On the Bosch that's done by a little computer, so if you give it power and the computer boots up and lights that green light on the front, I'm sure it will work. If y...

All the standard Digikey, Mouser, Newark are showing around the $100 each that you already found.

Re: Preheating, on EVSE?

Yes. A lot of the TPMS sensors have little G sensors built in and don't send pressures unless the wheels are turning.

That would be through OVMS. You can also read them through Soul Spy etc. The OBDII PIDs for them were known early on.

Re: 3rd Party Software to control Chargepoint charger?

That's the only way, the J1722 doesn't signal battery status. Battery charge rate on the L2 is basically linear, guestimate at 25% per hour for 32A 240V to start with and then tweak it a little.

Re: Clippercreek AmazingE FAST Level 2, 32 Amp EV Charging station

ClipperCreek is one of the really well known names for EVSE. I'd be perfectly happy with that as a replacement for my Bosch.

Just be aware that it doesn't have a holster or easy way to wrap the cable, both are available as accessories to buy from ClipperCreek.

Re: Bosch charger fried and 2016 will not charge

I've recently had several estimates from my dealer of parts that are going to take months only taking a week, including the OBC, so hopefully it doesn't take that long. Keep calling the dealership about a loaner though. It doesn't matter that the manager is out, they will have passed the authority o...

Re: Bosch charger fried and 2016 will not charge

I think the dealer is mistaken and it will all get sorted out and the OBC will be covered under warranty. Mine blew earlier this year and was replaced under warranty, no questions asked. They had also checked it out a coupe of years ago when the recall came out, so basically identical to yours. My c...
