Do I need a new controller?

Hi Paul,
For adding images, I have found that it works better to put your post up, then go "Post Options" and "Edit Post" and upload your image from that set of menus.

Merry Christmas.

Do I need a new controller?

Hi Paul,
Are you still using the original motor? If so there may be a carbon build-up from the brushes.
Blow it (the commutator end) out with a compressor and test again.

I had this problem with about 27 K ohm leakage via the motor to ground after blowing it out it went to around 27 Megohms.

G2 Prius Plug in Purchased....

I worked out I can do about 75Km on the KILL ICE mode before I loose the green. I am doing about 150Km combined mode before the battery is at 20% on a long trip on one charge. We are filling the petrol tank (remember to stop at the first click when filling) about every 1600Km. This is charging each ...

Hi Jason,

I noticed that you are using the EV Power blue box BMS controller.
Why, when the PIS Rear Controller has all that functionality built in?

Hi Jason,

Sorry about the no reply - I don't understand that - I always reply.

Hi Jason, If you are using the Plug-in Supply kit, the contactors come with the kit. They use 2 contactors one in the negative line and one in the positive. These are controlled by the PIS Rear Controller box. Also the charger connection uses a contactor. (I used 2 on that as well, to ensure the cha...

Hi guys. I live in Brisbane, so a heater is not something on my list of concerns :-) perhaps it would have been useful for a few days this winter just passed, but for those days we have a regular car :-) Check the regulations for your state. If you want to get it registered, you may have to have an...

Tesla driver killed in crash with Autopilot active

Hi Chris,
I saw a video about a near miss in which the truck came towards the side of a Model S and the Model S swerved autonomously, but the guy that got killed evidently ran into the back of a large truck trailer at high speed.

Is it a linear pot or logarithmic? Logarithmic could cause a sudden change.
