Re: Uh-oh - Gear oil leak

I called KIA Roadside assistance and they came and towed the car to the nearest KIA dealer in Calgary, AB. Dealer called and said they can't touch it because they are not EV Certified. Gave me the Canadian corporate number for Customer Assistance. So I called that number and explained the situation,...

Re: Where to keep spare Smart Key?

- There is a thread about used Teo Taxis from Montreal. Thinking of getting a higher mileage 2016 The taxi company stored the spare key fob under the drive shifter. It was taped up and wrapped in wire. Am not sure what the point of the wiring was. Probably to form a Faraday cage, to prevent the pro...

Re: Uh-oh - Gear oil leak

- At 155,000km you seem to have been 'lucky'. Getting this issue just 5,000km before the warranty expires. I haven't heard of anyone else getting this issue, but I am sure they will. Also I was surprised this was EV System not Drivetrain. Again, you are 'lucky'. https://abload.de/img/warrantygkk6k....

Re: radiator fan spinning constantly while charging and torque data

Might be fine then. I didn't see any reference to a thermostat in the Service Manual. There was this bit: "Traction Motor System Description The motor, On-Board Charger (OBC), and Electric Power Control Unit (EPCU) that makes up the main system in EV generates high heat when operating. Heat fro...

Uh-oh - Gear oil leak

Took my 2016 soul out for an errand when I returned I noticed a rather large puddle of an oily substance on the floor directly below the motor. Imagine my ironic shock when I realized that my electric car had come down with a pretty large oil leak. I removed the plastic guard to see where the oil wa...

Re: radiator fan spinning constantly while charging and torque data

- The only value that seems wrong is EWP =OFF. EWP is the electric water pump that pumps coolant through the OBC while the car is charging. The efficiency of charging will vary with temperature and the use or not of the cooling system. If your coolant pump isn't working for some reason that would l...

Re: 2015 Soul EV: My Battery Replacement Story

I bought a 2015 Kia Soul EV from Carvana last month. It was showing about 56 miles when fully charged. It took about a month to get the logistic setup for transporting it to the nearest certified EV Kia service center (Schamburg, IL). I am scheduled for diagnostics next week... I am hoping that all...

Re: Soul EV Spy Questions and Answers

I think I discovered that Soul EV Spy doesn't handle negative temperatures properly. Yesterday it was -33c here and when I checked my battery pack temperatures they all read 253.0, 247.0, and like that. When I rechecked them after driving about 20 mins a couple had crept above zero and read 3.0 whi...
