Re: Can't find certified Soul Ev. 5 mile commute make it unnecessary?

- If you are talking about a 2015 Soul EV all original warranties other then the battery warranty will have expired. We have discussed the details many times previously on this site. Information you get from the dealer is often inaccurate. Download the actual warranty from Kia and read it yourself. ...

Re: 2015 Soul EV: My Battery Replacement Story

- Hi Kish. As always thanks for posting the data. Back in 2018 I commented So there are a few possibilities about your new battery pack. 1. It is a brand new pack identical to the original. These had a total capacity of 30.5kWh, and a usable capacity of 27kWh. 2. It is a new pack that has been sitti...

NRS - Electric Vehicle Brakes

- YouTube reviewer TeslaBjorn added NRS - Electric Vehicle Brakes to his Tesl a M odel 3 last year. Sometimes I doubt how independent these reviews of products are given that the reviewer is either being paid directly, or is getting the product for free. Well here is a follow-up to that first video....

Re: Heat pump stopped working after climate software update SA427

...I got the update yesterday, and the heat pump is purring like a tractor again. The SW number is ST.PSEV.EUR.E532.191120, so Europe specific. That code is for the map software on your navigation screen. It is not the ROM ID of the FATC update. It is possible that Europe has different software for...

Re: Help wanted analyzing Soul Spy EV Battery results

- The important number is the State of Health (SOH) = 42.8% This will qualify for a replacement battery under warranty. It seems likely that the BMS has now calibrated to the correct value. The dealer probably saw an incorrect 100% last time. Just take the car back in and ask them to do the check ag...

Re: Decharging is not linear?

- No it isn't. The only time I have seen that is in a car with a 'bad' battery. The BMS did not know about a 'bad' cell or module until the SOC fell to about 50% and then it re-estimated the remaining energy much lower than before. I have also seen a couple of videos on YouTube where cars have sudde...
