Re: Help; ista high voltage battery capacity test fail

Hi,

Did you ever solve the EoS tester issue? I think I need to do the same fix.

Thanks,

Tom

Re: Converting BMW 2002 to electric using i3 parts

Included inside the battery pack box is the safety box that contains contacts that when open, disconnect the battery pack from external wiring. I don't know whether the safety box contacts open automatically during a significant collision. However, I do recall reading somewhere that this safety box...

Re: Converting BMW 2002 to electric using i3 parts

What about the cut off under the bonnet panel?? I've replaced the 12v battery and fixed the pyro connection, reconnected the service cutoff in the front trunk to no avail. I think there might be another cutoff somewhere between the HV battery and the inverter/motor (Terminal 30??). I'm getting the ...

Re: Converting BMW 2002 to electric using i3 parts

Check this thread, it has links to the best available technical information: http://www.mybmwi3.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=5444 I'm hoping to the put the motor/gearbox/inverter in the back and the batteries in the front. T...

That's the spirit! Jeez...

Re: Converting BMW 2002 to electric using i3 parts

Not sure exactly how the crash sensor shuts down the high voltage system, but it may just "pop" the manual disconnect, which is under the right panel under the hood. See the description on using the discontent on the "crash-card" for first responders. https://www.bmw.ca/content/...

Hi all, Long time lurker, first time poster on here. I've recently bought both a BMW 2002 from 1974 and a BMW i3 from 2016 that has been in a small-ish head on collision. My plan is to take the electric drivetrain, and as many auxiliaries as possible, from the i3 and transplant them into the 2002 in...

Re: i3 Accident Collision :(

So I've also bought an i3 that has been in a small head on collision and is exhibiting all the same issues as yours. My intention is to remove all the electronics from the i3 and transplant them into a BMW 2002 from 1974. I would ideally like to get the i3 running as is before I starting tearing out...
