Re: Headlights won't come on, everything else works.

I've been trying to find that, too. I can hear it under the hood somewhere but can't hear it from inside the car. I think I've narrowed it down to somewhere on the driver's side firewall area. The trouble shooting items in the shop manual say to check all those things but I can't find anything label...

Headlights won't come on, everything else works.

Any one else have the headlights not come on in any mode? This is on my US 2016 Soul EV+. My wife called me and said the headlights wouldn't come on. She disconnected the 12V battery for a minute to see if forcing a computer reboot would fix the issue and it didn't change anything. Everything else w...

Re: I think I need a new battery

Our 2016 EV+ with nearly 54k miles on it is only getting about 75 miles range. The battery is at 98% SOH. I don't know how people can claim that the car could get 120 miles range. The EPA range was only 93 miles. As notfred said, get a SOH check on the battery. For future reference, I take 70% of th...

Re: Battery Ageing Model

Did my best to never exceed 68mph That is a big part of your problem right there. When you drive a car with the aerodynamics of a brick, speed really affects range. Try 60mph. With our 2016 EV+ with nearly 54k miles the battery is at 98% SOH and in cold weather is getting only 75 miles range. Just ...

Re: Battery suddenly only charging to 90%

Has the charging stopped or was it still charging and only at 90% when you were ready to leave?

Re: KIA Soul EV - SIM card

Definitely report what you find. I hope it has radios for more than just Verizon stations because when the service contract expires I would like to just add it on with my AT&T phone plan. Also, if it has both radios you will more than likely be able to change SIMs and get it to work there. It mi...

Re: KIA Soul EV - SIM card

The US model uses the Verizon network. I've heard that their phones don't have a removable SIM card so it wouldn't surprise me if the car doesn't use on either. I don't know where I read it but someone changed their cellular modem out, it might have been on the older Nissan LEAF, however, since the ...

Re: 12v battery or DC Conterter problem?

Did you ever figure out what was wrong? It sounds like a DC-DC converter problem. If you plug a volt meter into the power port in the car, the voltage should be in the 13-14.x range while driving. That is what I see with mine. Alternatively, if you have access to Torque Pro and an OBDII reader to ma...

Re: Powering your house via Soul EV during outage

It has to not be good to continually pull power out of the Soul 12v battery that gets "recharged" from the traction battery for any period of time. One would think that battery isnt designed to pull that many amps in and out of it continuously. It doesn't discharge - charge - discharge - ...
