Re: Home charger not working: red light is on.

Sorry...I assumed all BMW i3 owners had the same domestic charger, the one coming as default with the car...but perhaps some cars come with other brands...


Anyway, my domestic charger is from Kopp.

Home charger not working: red light is on.

Hi, My domestic (Kopp) charger does not want to start charging my i3. I plug it in to the 220v socket, it does some internal tests but then goes from green to red light indicating some error has been detected. The first light nearest to the mains cable and on the right side (status of the cable conn...

Re: Main battery "too high discharge" warning

So I just installed the BMW OEM 12v battery on my i3. Car is working fine. The most tricky part was to dissengage and engage the main battery safety connector without damaging it. . But with some wiggeling and pulling up when disengaging, and prying away a little plastic tab on the left side of the ...

Re: Main battery "too high discharge" warning

Re: Main battery "too high discharge" warning

Thanks for the video. I downloaded the Bimmerlink app free version on my android phone and managed to connect to my car using a Unicarscan odb adapter. The SoC of the 12v battery shows 77% and now the warning message on the dash is no longer appearing. I did use the car for some short trips a couple...

Re: Main battery "too high discharge" warning

Yes, I checked the dealer and they want 146 EUR for the OEM battery...so I will buy it from BMW since the Yuasa is 110 EUR. One other thing not in favour of the Yuasa is that i discovered on a YouTube video that the terminals are not the same. The OEM terminals once you screw off the metal "cap...

Re: Main battery "too ihigh discharge" warning

Ok, yes I will try to replace it Asap. However I can not find the Remy nor Deka 18L batteries to be bought nor shipped here in Spain. I have found a similar one: YUASA YTX24HL-BS. It is AGM, 12v, 340 CCA (not 330) and 20ah. Is the yuasa battery the right one for the i3 ? I guess a higher CCA is comp...

Main battery "too high discharge" warning

Hi, This morning I noticed that the car had the red brake light, the red triangle warning light and red parking break light on. I reckon the lights had been on all night. I usually leave the car open, since it is sitting in my private garage. But the car shuts it self off after a while. I took the k...
