So this actually got dropped to me on Reddit, as I was asking queries about some other things, and someone gave me the link:

It says:
The Resolve controller makes it possible to build EV-conversions using the motor, inverter, charger and battery pack from Nissan Leaf models from 2014-2017. In addition to that the controller also has outputs to control the brake lights, reverse lights, to precharge the HV relays and many more things. Essentially it is an all in one solution for conversions using major drivetrain components from Nissan Leafs.
Personally I want to use it for my eNV200 Conversion, and I have contacted them asking if it is suitable, however if it allows use of the BMS, Batteries, Inverter, Motor, DCDC support, and the rest, then I am 100% on board with this! But I can't seem to find any feedback on it, though as most EV's have a part called a "Resolver" I'm getting about 10,000 results for that instead or "Can someone help me resolve the problem with my controller"

Here are some links provided on their page to the Wiring Diagram and Facts and Owners Manual

Cheers guys!

So I sent some emails, it appears the unit should work with the eNV200 besides some inconsequential errors from the BMS, which is absolutely fine by me.

We might need to gather some data on stiff, which may be hard as my vehicle can't really be driven on the road, because....well:
121710

So to get the CHAdeMo data I'll need to put it on the car trailer and go charge it, which is less than ideal really. As I also don't have anything to sniff the CANBUS, so I may have to get something.

That said, if it will work otherwise, I'm hell keen, so my plan today is to pop down and start pulling plugs off and getting photos for Resolve to double check the plugs and wire colours are the same, if that all matches up, I'll be so much closer on my project for it.

If this resolve controller does as it suggests, this will be a big leap forward in affordability, as i can't find any other cost effective controllers that do this. Have I missed other options? Keen to find out if anyone has come across any others.
Thanks

Well exactly, hence why I want to hear feedback.

In the last 7 months I'm just amazed no one has ever mentioned this to me.

@Scotty274 I have actually purchased this system and I am in the process of getting it going now. My first attempt (not surprisingly) did not work and I am starting on some troubleshooting when I get back from a short trip away. Isak (the developer) has been great with feedback & support. I believe this system has only just been released (December 2020 I believe) and my invoice was #3 hence it is early days. So far so good.

I agree this is a huge step forward in terms of getting the complete Leaf package going.

Awesome, well.afger talking with Isak I think I'm gonna go with this as well.

What do you think the issue is?

I think it is most likely something I have done on my side ie wiring :) I am away for a week and will test more thoroughly when I get back.
Well that's not too bad, you think it's just a dicky wire? Or you think you've fried something?

I was also talking to Isak, he said he'll show how to wire in an OBDII port as well on the loom.

I think it is my doing (I hope). I don't think I have fried anything.
I did wire in the OBD - the pin out is very simple so was not a challenge at all except it is not working yet as the Canbus is not going yet.

@Scotty274 I am #3 Order and I am pleased to say my Resolve EV system is now wired in with the Leaf systems and has come to life.

The next step is to get it a bit more permanently located in the BMW 2002.

Very pleased with the Resolve EV controller so far.

Does the charger work as promised?

@Scotty274 @Tremelune I can now confirm the charger in my Resolve Controller works. It took me some time to get a few parts hence the delay. It worked first time.

The second great news was the LeafSpy still works as well. I am very very happy with the outcome.

That's epic!

I have stagnated since going back to work and it's been sitting in the shed getting dusty (project, not Controller)

And this happened to my ute yesterday, so I'm currently figuring that out, so I'm not in the headspace right now.
