Hi , I am interested in carrying out an ev conversion with a 2007 Mini Cooper. I’ve spoken to a few people and they said that they are quite difficult to convert because of their existing complex electrical system . To take the vehicle on the road in the UK , after conversion , I will need to ensure that the existing electrical system still works e.g. Traction control , airbags , DSC etc . Has anyone succesfully fooled the ECU into thinking that the internal combustion engine is still in place ? With Thanks
