Re: Clipper Creek LCS-20 will not work

I have had a Clipper Creek EVSE fail and they were very gracious about it. The error indication appeared on the EVSE itself. But this sounds like an OBC (on-board charger) failure. Can you charge the car with the Level 1 EVSE that came with the car? If you can, then get back to Clipper Creek. If you...

Re: Just picked up Soul EV 2020 Limited

I wonder what it would take to get a 2020 in Vancouver and import it to the US. Probably a crazy idea..... Current plan is to buy out the lease and then hang on for another year to two....by which time the Tesla model Y, the 2021 Soul EV, the Ford Mustang Mach E and other choices should be available...

Re: Not charging, clicking then off

I have the same issue when I charge with a Clipper Creek 16 amp level 2 charger but it charges fine with my Kia 120 volt charger. Is that the same as what others see? OBC issue? NO - the OBC error prevents charging via any means except DC fast charging. Check your Clipper Creek EVSE for error indic...

Re: Just picked up Soul EV 2020 Limited - Not until 2021 in US

:( I just was on the US Kia site and saw the same thing - 2021 Soul EV coming to select dealers in the US in 2021. Well, that puts me in a spot. We extended the lease on the 2016 by six months already (and have been told we can only do that once) so in March 2020 we will have to either buy the car o...

Re: Charging Fault error.

I expect you will have to call and ask that.

Re: Charging Fault error.

Interesting seeing what’s inside. We got our Soul EV back this afternoon - so repair diagnosed, OBC acquired by the dealer and installed from Thursday afternoon to Monday afternoon. I saw the service invoice....the OBC was priced at something like $2290. They also performed a couple of other updates...

Re: Charging Fault error.

Well, our Soul EV is at Kia of Puyallup and I have a 2017 gas base Soul in the driveway as a loaner. While they didn't explicitly confirm that their testing was the OBC, they did tell me that due to the cost of the part they believe they need they have to do some calling tomorrow. That, to me, confi...

Re: Charging Fault error.

I’m not surprised you got it at Lee Johnson. There were over a dozen 2015 and 2016 Soul EVs on the used car lot down in front of the Chevy store when I was up there yesterday. That along with at least four new Niro EVs and probably at least two dozen new Chevy Bolts and that was the most EVs I’ve se...

Re: Kia EVs will shift from Chademo to CCS next year.

I saw a Niro EV (actually three of them) at a local dealer yesterday. They are definitely CCS type 1. So they are “in the wild” now. Also, the “Electrify America” charging stations that are going in around here (part of the Volkswagen diesel cheating settlement) are predominately CCS1. Most of them ...

Re: Charging Fault error.

Well....an update: When I called the dealer I leased from this morning (Kia of Puyallup). I got offered a service slot late NEXT week for diagnosis. I told them that was not acceptable as the car was essentially useless to me and I was told a service advisor would call me back. So far (this has been...
