Re: Clunk

No!. As my circumstances have altered somewhat, with a house move pending. Sadly, I have sold my Berlingo. I learned to live with the clunk by driving carefully and came to the conclusion that it was backlash in the driving gear from the armature to the gearbox. It made little difference to the driv...

Re: Blingo batteries

hello again. I don't know until I drop the battery pack out. You have taken me by surprise with your prompt reply. I plan to do that next week.
Kindest regards, John.

Blingo batteries

Message for Highend. Hello Przemyslaw. John Chatwin (chatwindows) here from Isle of Wight. You mentioned that you may be in the UK with some batteries soon. I need a further two. One to replace one of the four that I had from you, and another that is reading 6 volts and falls off rapidly when connec...

Re: Blingo short range message for grumpy and co.

hello Highend and thank you for your reply. Although the van is good at the mo. I still get a low reading from the middle pack. This was the last one I removed and found one cell very low around 5 volts, and another that read 6.1 volts. I changed them both and have kept the 6.1 cell. In hindsight I ...

Re: Blingo short range message for grumpy and co.

I had totally forgotten about the slightly lower temperatures these days and perhaps if warmer it may go the extra few miles. To be honest 40 miles is always more than enough for me. I only did the full 40+ for the last few runs to establish the status quo. Running up and down the village, if you kn...

Re: Blingo short range message for grumpy and co.

Well now boys. Although I fear my problems are not all cured, things are a bit better. I think perhaps one of the cells I had from Highend may be less than perfect and that I need to remove the middle pack again and do a Grumpy test (I've got my starter motor) to establish it's bona-fides. I now get...

Re: Blingo short range message for grumpy and co.

The dairy driver is a lovely young lady who has always driven a petrol or diesel vehicle. When I questioned her about her driving technique in the EV she smiled and looked straight through me in that annoying knowing way that people who do not understand seem to have. I agree entirely, until recentl...

Re: Blingo short range message for grumpy and co.

All good advice which I will adhere to. I have only done a few local light journies, in and out of the village and was going to water it at the next low percentage opportunity. I had to go into hospital for a Dupuytrens Contracture operation on Tuesday so have not done anything else yet. I intend to...

Re: Blingo short range message for grumpy and co.

I understand what you mean, but I have no more cells to replace them with. I am loathe to keep throwing good money after bad in the hope that I may come across good cells eventually. meanwhile what do i do with the faulty ones?
kindest regards, chatwindows.

Blingo short range message for grumpy and co.

Well, I don't know where to go now. Or more correctly I fear I have got to follow your advice Grumpy and remove all packs and do a high load test on every cell. I should have listened but I was clinging to the wreckage metaphorically. I tested today and got 27 miles at 50% when the light came on. I ...
