Re: Introducing OVMS for RAV4 EV

Yea! I get to do it better, a second time around, because I did pot the connector before testing -- I do know better, what was I thinking? First, here's a instrument cluster combo that isn't frequently seen: https://asavage.dyndns.org/Toyota/RAV4/EV/OVMS/Harness_Assembly/OVMS_wrong_connection_01d.jp...

Re: Hello to the Remaining Rav4 EV Owners Out There

In my 2014, I commuted for four years, from Aug2017 to Oct2021, at 56 mi./day, from 49k to 101k. it was perfect for that commute, with my only gripe being that the ride is busy, even with tires deflated to "only" 35 PSI. For a regular route like that, just perfect. I sorta semi-retired las...

Re: Interior Goodies for Sale

My 2017 WeatherTech driver's mat is getting pretty worn -- in the spot where I plant my foot to get in/out -- so I'd be interested in just that mat (or both front, I guess, though I don't think I'll ever need the passenger side). I'm afraid I can't use the cargo area stuff at all. If you'd be intere...

Re: Anyone else lose Entunes functionality?

The disadvantage I found with using the car's timer is that I could not have both pre-climate at an exact time and have charging finish within two hours of departure. I got around that by using the timer in the EV-SE instead. OpenEVSE Advanced 48A is $600 these days, 4-week lead time for the assembl...

Re: Introducing OVMS for RAV4 EV

Thanks! Fixed. Also fixed was a missing TX- wire that was somehow deleted during previous editing.

Ugh. How do you know these things? I can't tell visually, and I've read hundreds of drawings and got paid to do it ;)

Re: Coolant issue? - all getting heated up on how/what to do

My 8/100k new car Platinum warranty expired and I have an offer to renew for another 5years/60k miles for $2,600. I haven't pulled the trigger yet, but I should. I'm just off the phone with Toyota of Kirkland (Wash.). My 2014 RAV4 is now at ~103k, and my current Sep2017 Platinum VSA expires at 110k...

Re: Introducing OVMS for RAV4 EV

Good catch, Mike! Yeah, connecting the LAN jack to the Toyota's harness wouldn't likely get me very far. Good catch, Matt! I'm used to seeing the mfgr's pin numbering on the back of the shell, and for some reason I got stuck on those drawings being the rear, not the mating side. It doesn't help that...

Re: Introducing OVMS for RAV4 EV

My parts won't arrive until Thursday night, so . . . first pass at a wiring diagram. I should've used a different tool, and I'm not 100% happy with the rendering, but it's a first attempt. I like this kind of visual guide when building harnesses; other harness builders use different methods. Click o...
