Hmm, I've not tried the OVMS lately, but I recently used the PICkit 2  
to program a 5 V PIC board that was 4 times as big. When you use the  
official Microchip PICkit software on Windows, it detects the PIC  
model number and automatically selects the voltage, then powers the  
board while programming. It's not production quality power for  
reliable programming, but it should work.

Is there some special reason why the PICkit 2 cannot power the OVMS  
V2 board? I recommend checking all of the settings on your PICkit
