A123 lithium data of interest
Thanks to many people, we have some A123 20AH cells in hand, and have some interesting data sheets and articles to review to help with the design of a lithium pack system for the Insight.

Grid charger stuff
Grid charger stuff
The grid charger design was a hit, and has already brought back many packs.
The newest drawing is the universal hybrid battery charger. This is described here:
universal grid charger
Hope we can save a bunch more.
New chargers are nearing completion, so hope you can struggle with your weak and failing battery a bit longer.

Insight 2 information
Insight 2 information
Thanks to Simon Trahan,who bought the service and electrical manuals and sent then to me.
First look:
It looks like the BCM functions are handled by the MCM, and the ECM is called PCM.
There is a B-CAN,F-CAN,and IMACAN network. B-CAN and F-CAN connect in the guage module, and are available on the scantool port. It looks like the IMA assist/regen control is handled by the IMACAN network, which does not connect to the other networks.
The MCM is also on the main CAN bus which connects to the other networks and the DLC scan port.
Photos of some of the pertinent schematics and block diagrams will be put up here.
Note that battery to MCM2 and 3 had an error in the polarity of the subpacks, so 2r, and 3r is the correct polarity.
