I'm attempting to put a Leaf drivetrain in a Rover Mini
, and I'm stuck getting the "car" started
on a bench. Specifically, I can't get passed the "When parked apply parking brake"
message, and I've just about given up.
Plan C is to purchase aftermarket charges and BMS, but it would be nice if I could use the Leaf stuff to save a few bucks. It seems like the Leaf CAN BUS system has been pretty well decoded, but I'm wondering if there are any plug-and-play products to get them working without having to delve into an Arduino setup myself?
What does it currently take to repurpose the Leaf chargers (fast and slow) and BMS system (using the same Leaf battery pack and configuration)?
