Re: PHEV Loss of Km Range with Battery.

Hi is there anyone Wrecking a PHEV? i would like to play around with the BMU computer If your problem is dimishing Km range from the battery, check Andy’s Youtube site Unplugged EV with particular attention to the Lindqvist Method which is a very simple and often effective method of resetting the B...

Re: PHEV Loss of Km Range with Battery.

At nearly 5 years since purchase and 33,000 km my battery range is down to 77.6% at 29.5 Ah according to a Watchdog check.
I would post the images but can’t see a way to do so with this app using my iPad.

Re: PHEV Loss of Km Range with Battery.

Unfortunately I cannot find a way to reply directly to each of the three recent posts so I will have to do it this way. Everyone should read all of this as there are overlaps applicable to you all, and no doubt many other PHEV owners. To WAN, your state of health of 71.6% in a car of this age is cle...

Re: PHEV Loss of Km Range with Battery.

I don’t get any notification when anyone makes a comment to this thread which I started last year so I only come across comments when I happened to look for any new ones. I watch some of Andy’s videos and both he and a friend of mine have received brand-new batteries, probably with the improved rang...

Re: PHEV Loss of Km Range with Battery.

Hi Reecho, Your battery problems are just like what seems to be a limited number of PHEV owners are suffering. Whether it is related directly to cell failure or whether the Battery Maintenance Unit (BMU) is limiting excessively the amount of charge is not quite clear to me. Nevertheless the fact tha...

Re: PHEV Loss of Km Range with Battery.

Thanks to everybody for your comments and suggestions. As I understand it, the direct engine to wheels mechanical drive only connects above the speed of 120 km/h, a bit too fast! I did not reply sooner as the PHEV was being serviced last week and I additionally asked them to do the cell smoothing pr...

Re: PHEV Loss of Km Range with Battery.

Thanks for those interesting replies, Rob. The PHEV certainly is a slug on petrol alone. I would never try towing a caravan with it in hilly country. But for what I use it for, it is fine. Regarding battery range, something extraordinary happened a little while back. About every 10 days I do the sam...

Re: PHEV Loss of Km Range with Battery.

Hi Rob, That information about the drainage plugs was reassuring re water crossing. I also had a minor car park misadventure. Without jacking, I had a look under the car and although I did not know exactly what I was looking for, there was no sign of anything having made contact with any obstruction...

Re: PHEV Loss of Km Range with Battery.

Thank You very much for your detailed response and the link to your disaster last year. Just a few km from a dealership! Such a failure on my trip to Cairns could have been much less happy with dealerships hundreds of km apart! Sorry to read of your puddle problem. I will certainly now be very caref...

Re: PHEV Loss of Km Range with Battery.

To Rob, That Information is EXTREMELY interesting. How were you able to convince the dealership to replace the BMU, and was it done under warranty? Unfortunately the dealerships in Brisbane/Gold Coast seem to have minimal understanding of the PHEV and say that there is nothing wrong with the car, no...

Re: PHEV Loss of Km Range with Battery.

To zzcoopej Thanks for you suggestions. The odometer reading is around your 44,000km and nearly all of these are Battery km. The PHEV in question does much the same trips every day. Two trips to the school, one or two trips to the bus station totalling around 40km. This was originally done on one ch...

Re: PHEV Loss of Km Range with Battery.

To reecho, I believe that tyre pressure is kept up. Could you please give some details of what the 16A EVSE charger does better than the supplied charger?

PHEV Loss of Km Range with Battery.

If you own a PHEV and it is showing signs of reduced battery range at a rate that is somewhat faster than the reasonable ageing rate of the battery, I would like to hear from you. From other sites it seems that this is not a particularly isolated problem. One example is a PHEV that is less than 4 ye...
