Re: Aftermarket speakers?

Thanks for the great posts!
Just bought it on amazon for $70.
Definitely worth a try!
And I like the idea of stashing the EVSE under hood, only in the winter I use it daily at work, so it stays on the floor behind me.

Re: Conversion to Coupe

All cars these days are unibody, no separate chassis.

I would build something like this to take the Spark EV's compact drive unit and battery pack: https://vanderhallusa.com/

Re: Where do we all live? Sparks are dispersing.

I believe that the vehicle keeps the battery above a certain temp ( ? 2C = 36F ? ) if not plugged in, but if plugged in it will warm the battery to a higher temp. But what I don't remember now is if the vehicle warms the battery *during* the charge, or only after a full charge is *finished*, or *al...

Re: Where do we all live? Sparks are dispersing.

...thanks for tip...going to try to not do full charge unless i need to once i figure out daily usage But this time of year you NEED to keep the battery warm and ready to go. Leaving it plugged in may not be a bad thing. This time of year my car gets topped to 100% twice a day. I want the battery w...

Re: No Heat!

It has problems.
The one thing you can do is check all the various coolant levels under the hood.

Sounds like time for a visit to a dealership.... Good luck.

Re: battery range and cold weather

..... "Set the climate controls the way you want them before turning off the vehicle, because those are the settings used during Remote Start - if you haven't turned on the heater, it won't be on during a Remote Start." I'm not sure this is accurate, even if the manual says so. There are times when...

Re: your favorite youtube spark ev review?

my spark EV in 4-5" of snow with Michelin X ice snow tires. Nice ! Except your camera man didn't get the memo about not making 'vertical videos'..... :? What size are you running? If I lived somewhere with consistent snow I would definitely get winter tires. But for some unexplainable reason the wi...

Re: Has anyone tired the moon caps/eyes on the spark yet?

Are you talking about aero wheel covers?

They would need some means to attach to the alloy wheels.

The car is such a 'box' and only 82 miles to measure an aero improvement.
I doubt you'd be able to get consistent data.....

Re: TPMS Service Light

The tool is a "Relearn Tool" to tell the car system which is which. I used my cheap amazon tool just yesterday to put my stock wheels with new tires back on the car for the coming snow. :| You may be experiencing the TPMS sensors at the end of their battery life. New ones are available on amazon als...

Re: ? rear brake damper removal ?

Look closely where the damper meets the caliper bolt. There are flats for a very thin open end wrench. A 'Cone Wrench' in bicycling tools is what's needed. Or grind down a beater wrench to fit. 13mm if I remember correctly. I just grabbed the damper with large channel locks and it unscrewed. Those s...
