Re: Torque pro battery capacity guess...

DFW, yep those are the PIDs I loaded and use. Just had to change the OBD2 reader to get them to show up. Updated on Spark No. 2 with 15.7-15.8kwh capacity. One of my hope was that I could make a 65 mile trip to my mother's house as a day trip. Ended up making the journey with the two boys yesterday...

Spark EV Braking Question

I have been noticing that when I apply the brakes in my 2016 Spark EV, slowing down seems normal until just before the car stops. Just before the car stops, I here an audible "clunk" and experience what feels like the brakes grabbing. Anyone else have this experience or can identify possible causes?...

Re: Torque pro battery capacity guess...

"I recommend getting a smart trickle charger (12V auto battery type) an trickle charging your accessory battery overnight. The car will not work if the 12V battery goes south, and if the car sat around for a long period of time the 12V battery might have been damaged. " I really agree with SparkE's ...

Re: Torque pro battery capacity guess...

Pulled the trigger on the replacement. Body has some more paint chips in it than the first, but this one will have 17k miles in silver instead of white. Carvana has been great to deal with so far and understood why I chose to return it, but you're right Chris. If they would go through the trouble o...

Re: Torque pro battery capacity guess...

Welp, Sparky No. 1 goes back to Carvana today at 10am. Already put a couple deposits on 2 more with 14-16k so I can see pics/have first option to buy when they're detailed and ready. Finger's crossed! It will be interesting to see what the battery capacity is in the car you select. My guess is arou...

Re: Torque pro battery capacity guess...

Thanks for that little bit of info, wasn't aware the the battery estimate could increase. Given what I know NOW and my 7 day Carvana window I may opt to go with a different spark for $500 more that has 14k miles instead of 28k. I think my odds of a higher capacity battery are greatly increased and ...

Re: Torque pro battery capacity guess...

I guess my answer is yes, for 90% of my needs it would be fine. There are times when I'd want to drive it 65 miles for a day trip and charge while there, then 65 miles back. The BACK is what I'm concerned about as it's a 2000 ft elevation gain toward the end of the trip. With Carvana I have until F...

Re: Torque pro battery capacity guess...

Bah, swapped out my bluetooth adapter for an ancient one I found in the bottom of a drawer and it's working now! Now for the bad news. 2016 with 28k battery capacity is 14.4kw, ugh. Should I return this one to Carvana and try again? The real question is this - does the car meet your driving needs? ...

Re: Torque pro battery capacity guess...

What if the 12V battery had to be replaced and the car hasn't had a full charge/discharge cycle, only been driven about 12 miles since the 12V battery replacement. Would that have an effect on readings/estimations in torque? SOC raw does work for me. Maybe coincidence, but it LOOKS like all PIDs wi...

Re: Torque pro battery capacity guess...

Yeah its loaded on my screen as "Bat Cap Est" or Battery Capacity Guess. When I choose more gauges to show and scroll through the list it shows some values active/displaying data. I can even see individual cell voltages, but the battery capacity gauge doesn't show any value in that list or when add...
