Our electric car is fixed
Under the bonnet of the Mitsubishi i MiEV electric car
2nd June 2010 - Hurray our electric car is fixed!!
We phoned up the local Mitsubishi garage this morning to find out how the repairs are going, to be informed that it was repaired. We drove to the garage to collect the vehicle, our local garage is only 5 minutes away.
The i MiEV has a 12 volt battery to run some of the auxiliary electrics, this battery had lost its charge and therefore caused the problems, We do not know why this has happened. They had recharged the battery overnight and the Mitsubishi was working fine again.
The 12 volt battery can be found under the bonnet in a case. We were informed that if the same problem occurred again that we could charge it up ourselves. Hopefully this is a one off though.
Mitsubishi were very efficient in getting the i MiEV collected and repaired and I am glad we were only unable to use it for a couple of days.
