Re: just before the extended warranty runs out - buy another?

My Toyota Extra Care VSA expires in September. A couple of weeks ago I called Toyota of Kirkland, where I'd purchased the warranty in Sep2017 , and received a quote for another warranty. This one would be for four years instead of five, around $2400. I'll follow up in August and see if that goes up,...

Re: Introducing OVMS for RAV4 EV

Tough installing heat shrink over two leads, then sliding down onto the pin after soldering. I'd have to use larger heat shrink than would fit well. This is all low voltage stuff, so any gap >.020" is fine, as long as the humidity stays reasonable. With proper nippers, a pin forest this sparse ...

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 ;)
