Re: 12V Battery Replacement ?

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.

12V Battery Replacement ?

I have a 2015 Soul EV (man'f. Oct. '14) with 15K+ miles. I'm concerned about the life of the 12V 45AH Aux Battery (sealed).
Should I worry about remaining life?
Looking for any suggestions on the remaining life and where to buy a replacement online.
Thx,
Ed

2019 Kia Soul EV Sales

I notice a U.S. EV industry score-sheet that only 3 Soul EV cars has been sold in the 1st 4 mo. of 2019.

I guess that KIA has stopped selling Soul EVs in the U.S. until the 2020 model comes out.

True?

Re: Check EV system error

Sounds like a repeatable event; true? Maybe connected with some heat buildup ? Any temp. data that might correlate?
