This blog covers my ongoing practical experience with converting a 1975 Porsche 914 into an all-electric car. While the battery nonetheless provides very good voltage, it won’t provide the correct amperage. You may have a poor connection in the charging method (check that connectors and wires are in very good situation and making good contact), a failing alternator or voltage regulator, which generally you’ll locate mounted on the alternator’s case in modern day autos. Generally, a bad alternator diode will bring about your headlights or instrument panel lights to flicker or dim and, sometimes, drain battery power overnight, or in minutes.
I have not been driving my electric Geo that considerably due to the fact it gets genuinely hot in Oklahoma throughout the summer season, and placing A/C back in is a challenge. Tesla requires battery thermal management incredibly seriously, has designed a extremely robust system to do it, does it really nicely, and is prepared to divert energy from charging to keep the pack temperature as preferred. I place it back on the charger, and today (24 hours later), it had a voltage of 13.01v appropriate off the charger.
The other batteries took a couple of hours, but the new one particular took more than 12. Also, I decided to treat a single of the batteries in my pack with the ECO2 battery reviving solution I received from Korea. However, if your voltage reading remains the very same or slightly lower than base voltage, the charging program isn’t working. …Read More
