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 - ...

Re: Fast charging communication error

If this happens on multiple charging stations it might be an issue with the receptacle in the car. Have you had the car scanned for fault codes? I've seen some strange things so it might also be that you could unhook the negative terminal of the 12V battery for a little bit to force the onboard comp...

Re: Home Level 1 Charging. Fault

And I can't get the UVO app to work. The car says to go to the app, the app says to go to the car!! I had to call Kia Customer service and on the third try I got someone who understood what my dilemma was. She had someone in the tech department remove the car from the previous owners MyUVO account ...

Re: Speedometer or Instrument Cluster Software update

atimex, it can't be fixed. That is what Jeju was trying to tell you. For some unknown reason Kia didn't enable that feature in the Souls made for the US market. Apparently they don't realize that sometimes we drive into Canada. Most US residents don't know how to convert to km/h from mi/h. You can, ...

Re: Turning in a lease - buyout offers, extensions?

I traded in our 2016 EV+ with 14 months left on the lease for a 2018 EV+ and they just rolled the difference in buyout price and trade in value into the new lease.
