I wasnt sure if it would throw up a fault message if just a couple of cells went, I have no idea how many cells these things have. If they are LiPo batteries then the individual cells will probebly be in foil packs. In that case I could have been hearing the metal box they are all in cased in popping out as the cells puffed up like a pillow. ( anyone that does RC model aircraft flying will know exactly what I mean ). On the second question, I had the regen on max with no brake applyed, this is a full EV so no chance of a backfire. I didn't have the brake on. By the time the second and 3rd one happened I was very sure I didn't drive over anything. ( and no bullet holesWhile doing a long decent with the regenerative braking on high I had 3 bangs come form the rear of the vehicle. Could 3 batteries have exploded on me??
PS. I forgot to mention that I am an Electronics Engineer so please feel free to talk technical.
To be honest I can't remember if the radio was on. I will however have to look into fully charged.This is just a thought. I was listening to one of the latest Fully Charged podcasts recently on a motorway and kept getting a reasonably loud thudding noise from the back. I believe it was the subwoofer in the boot and the mic being knocked during Roberts interview. Do you remember if you were listening too and if so can you replay it to see if you can recreate it.
I think it was this I was listening to
Robert heads to The City (of London) to talk to Bryony Worthington aka Baroness Worthington who is a Member of the House of Lords. Baroness Worthington is a Crossbench Life peer who has sat under this title in the Lords since 31 January 2011. Thus, she has a huge influence in campaigning for...podcasts.google.com
1. I doubt that Hyundai would advertise across the screen that you have to come in for them to replace about one third of the price of the car for you. More likely the owner is going to have to prove to Hyundai with absolute certainty that some cells have failed. Then of course there is the risk of them turning around and saying that to get the evidence you tampered with the car.that would be extremely unlikely
and any issue with the battery pack should result in a big error message on the console
as to what the bangs were pass, was the car on regen or engine braking?
It did it again!!!! Going down the same mountain pass this time I made sure the radio was off and there was no bottles in the car. It did it in about the same spot, this time is was a very significant band, I actually felt it as well. My new OBD2 should arrive in the next couple of days and hopefully this one will work.
Will keep you all posted.
