Re: Software update needed for HV battery capacity check

Its irrelevant. All that matters is, if you start quoting capacity according to the 18.8 kwh (available) you must finish measuring the same. You cannot start measuring the available and then finish measuring relative to the 22.2 kwh total capacity. My battery capacity is down to 65% original, but w...

Re: Software update needed for HV battery capacity check

Is the 70% threshold for warranty measured from full capacity or usable capacity?

Re: Charting Battery Capacity/ State of Health Over Multiple Years

I bought my 2018 i3S with 43500 miles on it on 9/4/2021. At the time, I checked the Kappa and it read 29.2 kWh. It was bang in the middle of summer and it was a hot day. I don't recall what the SOC was at the time or if the car was charging. But I do know the temperature was well in the 90's. I chec...

Re: Software update needed for HV battery capacity check

These people are children. Companies want all the benefits of being companies...the tax breaks, the incentives, the corporate protection, all the BS they get away with, the mass amounts of money and profit they make. Yet when it comes to honoring contracts and agreements, they become psychopaths and...

Re: I took my 2014 i3 in for a battery capacity check and BMW added capacity to my battery

3pete's i3 must have had a pretty old software version prior to his recent update because the new battery icon appeared when our i3 was updated to I001-18-11-520. The previous version on our i3 was I001-16-07-506, so the battery icon must have changed between July, 2016, and November, 2018. If the ...

Re: I took my 2014 i3 in for a battery capacity check and BMW added capacity to my battery

I hardly drive my i3 anymore since I stopped commuting 75 miles a day before the pandemic even started. The reduced capacity/range is still adequate enough and it charges really fast now! :lol:. Otherwise, like 3pete said, if I were sweating the range I'd be more aggressive about getting something ...

JTY –

Glad to hear that the motor swap cured your problem!

I watched most of the video and I didn't hear anything unusual – can you recommend a good time in the clip where the noise happens?
It's pretty obvious at the beginning... it's a definite whine that shouldn't be there.
