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

Dave, perhaps your vehicle's mileage is a factor. Mine has 104k, which is fairly low, and that might be a reason why I received a quote. How many miles were/are on yours?

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

This is my old Sep2017 VSA: https://asavage.dyndns.org/Toyota/RAV4/EV/Owners_Rigs/Al's_2014_blue/VSA_2017_01d.jpg Toyota's Vehicle Service Agreement comes in many flavors. In the above, my VSA form is checked "Platinum" but other levels are options. I don't know the differences between VSA...

Re: My own experiences fixing a RAV4 EV not charging/fuse blown issue

i translate that to "these very fast-blow fuses protect wiring and some internal components against cheap/faulty circuit design".

Re: My own experiences fixing a RAV4 EV not charging/fuse blown issue

Measuring a fuse for open is easy-ish. Replacing it in the DC-DC or Charger isn't. I'm not sure what you're asking me. I'd said that fuses don't "go bad" or "get weak", two phrases that I've heard a lot over the years, by people who don't understand how fuses work and seem to be ...

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...
