Re: Buick Lacrosse 2012 e-assist moto-alternator

Yea, the HPEVS AC-9 is awesome, but the price is out of my range. The good news is that the encoder might be less of an issue then I thought. Curtis support told me that any quadrature encoder 4-pin speed encoder 5v or 12v in 32-256 PPR range would work. A quick search on ebay I found 5v, 4pin speed...

Re: Buick Lacrosse 2012 e-assist moto-alternator

It's such a nice motor, it's a shame there is no easy way to get it working. I'll try to contact curtis to see if they have any type of over the counter encoder. The best would be if some electronic engineer could crack the OEM controller but I don't know any EE. The battery pack is nice too. I'm ju...

Re: Buick Lacrosse 2012 e-assist moto-alternator

Yea, I try to rent a buick lacrosse but no luck I also posted on buick forums that I'll pay for 30min of their time and nobody was willing.

Ok, back to curtis controller, this sounds like it's doable. Is there a over the counter resolver/encoder for curtis controller or building one is the only way?

Re: Buick Lacrosse 2012 e-assist moto-alternator

Got it, do you know if this type of motor can run with out resolver? I guess the resolver is used for it to be running in closed loop for battery regen? The oem controller would be great to figure out as it's easy to obtain and cheep to get but nobody has canbus commands to run it. I'm new to this a...

Re: Buick Lacrosse 2012 e-assist moto-alternator

I have the motor sitting on my desk and I can't get it running with the OEM controller. It looks like running after market controller is the only way to get it running, but I don't know what controller would work. Let me know your new thread and if you found any more info on this. I googled and fou...

Re: Buick Lacrosse 2012 e-assist moto-alternator

Back again with an update. Was unable to find a service manual for the lacrosse :/ but as it turns out the inverter module is the same for the 2013 Chevy Malibu, which is quite a bit more common. I purchased a manual and lo, there are some rough one line diagrams for beginning the reverse engineeri...
