Hi,

I have a opel agila from 2001
I have a DC permanent magnet motor 230v / 207Amp pulse
I have some Li-FePO4 from a123RC and i`m planing to buy more cells.

Here is what i done until now

I`m facing 2 problems before starging :

1.After i remove the ICE engine how do i trick the electric servo searing to work. I heard if the batt voltage is above 14v it will work but i`m not sure.
2. The airbag will work if the key is in contact bot not with ICE engine running because is not present?


ERROR : engine missing :p

Hello to all,

In the last 2 months i progressed a lot.
First i mange to buy 78 cells A123systems 20Ah.
After i cut the motor do have enough space in the engine compartment.

The second thing after that i take the shape of the gearbox with a cardboard,
make dxf form it and go to the laser cutting machine.
After i joined the motor with gearbox to see if everything is aliened. i turn on the motor and the motor is not of centered.
For the moment i need to built the 3-rd holding element for the motor picture (CAM00656m)
