Re: Soul Spy?

it's a funny behavior. It's obvious that the BMS needs a certain amount of energy spent to calibrate the readings. I noticed the first times I charged mine just after I got it (the dealer made a reset before delivery), it was stuck on the same values. After a few weeks, it started moving. The stran...

Re: Soul Spy?

Strange, how many times did you went below 19% in this time? In the beginning I did it a few times to get better readings right after I had gotten the new battery, I'd say about 5 times. But since it did not seem to improve much I wasn't inclined to keep trying every few days because I needed to dr...

Re: for SOH % is torque value correct ? or SoulSpy ?

SoulSpy doesn't work with all the OBD dongles that Torque does.

A very quick but slightly inaccurate way to determine the SoH is to find your maximum deterioration. Then deduct that number from 110. So for example if your max. det. is 20 your SoH would be 110 - 20 = 90%

Re: Best way to drop 1% SOH on 2016?

Thanks for posting and please keep us posted... I just purchased an off-lease 2016 with 24k miles and 99.7% SOH according to SOULSPY. Can you confirm that the battery capacity warranty applies to 100k miles regardless of whether the vehicle was purchased used or CPO? I've seen conflicting info on t...

Re: Reset BMS by removing BMS fuse

I've had more or less the same experience as you did. Finally, after about two months, the car actually knows that is has got a new battery. I don't know why it took so long. I did get the new software for the BMS before. At that time he car was reset back to the normal factory readings. Of course I...

Re: Pedestrian Warning System

Also, I consider the PWS as a safety system, but I don't see it listed in the KIA lists of Safety features. I'm not sure what list you're referring to. In my manual the VESS is mentioned in the "green chapter" on page 47. There is a whole chapter about safety (chapter 3) but this only men...

Re: How to estimate SoH for Buying Used

Warren55, this is so stereotypical but I live in Hollywood and I am stumped to think of a close non-iPhone friend. I don't know anything about iOS but it seems strange there isn't an OBD-II app for iOS that you can use to get the readings from your car. It might not have the easy SoH number that So...

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.. You can hear it best with the radio off and windows open and driving slowly. Once you know how it sounds you might hear it even with the windo...
