Default soc reset

I'm waiting on my OBDIIC&C to come in here on my end, just wondering if there is another way to reset soc after a grid charge, i understand if i pull fuse # 18 under the dash it should reset, i havn't had any luck getting it to work... is there a certain way i should be doing it for the car to recognize correctly upon start up?

thanks
-steveo

Pulling the fuse will only reset SOC to 0 bars. AFAIK

To set the SOC to any other level you will need the ODBIIC&C or Mikes SOC reset device.

If I am looking at the correct fuse panel under the drivers side dash, just above the kick panel, how do you see any numbers? I don't see anything identifying each fuse.

Now I did find the IMA fuse in the engine bay and that was #18, didn't do anything tho.
How can I reset my SoC without purchasing more things? Would like to pull a fuse and not disconnect the battery to save my radio memory.

Try disconnecting the 12V for 30 seconds

Trying to get it to the top after a charge isn't going to happen by pulling a fuse or the 12v. The car will be at zero and it will charge until it detects it is full. Of course this is a problem with your non-standard pack.

OBDIIC&C is your best bet.

yes it drops to zero, which causes it to charge a bit then it will correctly fill the guage. The SOC reset and OBDII C&C seem like a better solution.

If you are running a lithium pack and a BCM interceptor your SOC should be fixed at 19 bars anyway if it is set up correctly. The whole point of the BCM interceptor was to fake 19 bars soc at all times unless the lithium pack was exhausted.

Your independent BMS should be telling you what the actual lithium battery soc is.

After my grid charge, I pulled fuse 18 (used OM to determine which one), replaced fuse,and drove the car for about 10 minutes. Soc re-established itself indicating 'full' battery. No need to rev engine to 3500 (as when pulling 12 v terminal). bty: OM indicated fuse 18 was lighting even though it was really soc indication.??

I just go out to the car with my lunchbox, turn the key ahead, go back in to get my laptop and morning drink of choice, kiss the wife and go back out to the car. By the time I get there it will be at 19 bars. Every time. I have my charger set to 169v. I think if it sees 168 or more for 2 minutes it does a positive recal. (on mine anyway)

(Sometimes) I just leave the key ahead and while plugged in the SOC creeps up on its own. This works good on 1 hour waits. (outlets are everywhere)

I have an 8amp charger up to 165v then a 700ma charger to take it to 169. So it only takes me an hour to charge it back up. (if it is not super hot out - then I just don't charge)

Once I accidentally left the key ahead overnight. When I got to the car the 20th bar was lit. It took FOREVER to drop to the 19th bar. I liked it.
