Re: Steering wheel warning light

- Warren - this is an important issue and I suggest you take it to Kia and have it checked. There have been two recalls to fix the steering wheels on 2014 - 2016 cars. see :- Kia Soul Steering Wheel Recall https://abload.de/img/24852076_102146230587imqun.jpg --------------------------- Back in Septe...

Warren - I'm assuming your battery stress wasn't caused by really high speeds, but by normal freeway speed up a long, steep incline. Am guessing you drove up from California into the Sierras.
The degradation seen during battery stress isn't heat related but power related.

Re: Soul Spy?

- A value I would like to see added to SoulSpy is Battery Stress = Quadratic average of battery current flow. The RMS is also known as the quadratic mean and is a particular case of the generalized mean with exponent 2. 'Battery Stress' is related to lower efficiency, and higher heat in the battery....

... 2) Run the electric water pump after changing the coolant to bleed the system. .... This was done on my car when the OBC was replaced. It required the official GDS to be running - and an Internet connection to Kia. https://abload.de/img/photo_2017-12-13_14-365ssn.jpg https://abload.de/img/photo...

Re: Soul Spy?

- I think the way State of Charge SOC is shown on the app is confusing. SOC (display) is the one everyone is used to. It is the one shown on the car. This one is easy to understand.
