Re: Kia Access app and UVO Link

Current on my using the KIA Access App (Android ; App. ver. 3.7.0.).
The KIA app does update my '15 EV info within maybe 30 sec.
Sometimes it shows "Updated: now", and sometimes shows "Updated: date and time".
Seems to always show the car location.
So, for now, it's useful.

Re: Kia Access app and UVO Link

This doesn't address your problem but here's my story. I too have been using UVO, then Kia Access (Android) for info about my '15 Soul-EV for years. Now, KIA Access, v. 3.6.0 is not updating vehicle information quickly, or sometimes, not at all. I did get a update on 12/25/2019, but not now. However...

Re: Soul EV Spy Questions and Answers

Reporting a positive result of using this Soul EV Spy-Lite App with my 2015 Soul EV. I have a Konnwei KW902 (from Amazon).

Re: Pedestrian Warning System

Re: The advertised "Safety" Systems, I was referring to is the list on the placard pasted on the window; there when I bought the car. The list had 9 lines with items like airbags and tire pressure monitoring. Certainly not a complete list, and can be arbitrary . So I took my car back to th...

Re: Pedestrian Warning System

There is a new story out on the subject in the NY Times: " Why Quiet Cars Are Getting Louder", https://nyti.ms/2qGvXoa So it will be required in the U.S. for all EVs, as of Sep '20. I will be asking my local KIA service to fix it for me. I have the loud beeping when selecting Reverse gear....

Re: Pedestrian Warning System

Thanks for good reply. And I must assume that the PWS Burble is quite audible to the driver with the car windows open, when car is moving , up to 20 km.hr..
I checked the backup beeping ; is coming from the left-front corner, so must share speaker with forward travel PWS sound.

Re: Pedestrian Warning System

It's been a long time for any new comments on this item. I still have a problem with this PWS system: I have NO sound when going forward. When I 'm in a parking lot, slowly driving behind walkers, nobody hears the car (and neither do I). I saw a posted comment that the PWS sound was "A very fas...

Re: 12V Battery Replacement ?

My warranty book says "original equipment battery" warranty is 24-mo. and unlimited miles. Mine still working at 4+ years. I checked with a battery load tester and it tested weak. Easy decision to replace. Found a replacement at Costco; Interstate "fitment code 39" Group "12...

Re: 12V Battery Replacement ?

Thx for the useful info on battery lack-of-fail-warning, a surprise for me. I checked the owner's manual and only says it is a "maintenance-free" battery (pg.7-34). Does recommend to "inspect battery condition" every 7,500 mi/6-mo. Probably means just exterior ? Also, calls out d...

Re: 12V Battery Replacement ?

Thx for the info. I would like to know the specifics of your new battery ; brand, p/n.
Also, did you wait until the old batt. failed or what ?
Finally, any surprise resettings after the new batt. installed ?
Thx for your help.
