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). I followed the simple instructions, and with my Android tablet, was able to get many (9) screens of data, which are posted: https://tinyurl.com/wh8ctrp I'm happy with a Batt. SO...

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 ?

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.

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?
