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...

Re: Level 1 charges; level 2 does not - 2016 KIa Soul EV

There’s another large thread here about the onboard charger failing.....though in that case the car typically won’t charge with level 1 chargers either. I will soon find out about this as our 2016 last night decided we couldn’t charge it any more (we’ve had it since September 2016). We have a level ...

Re: Charging Fault error.

Well, it looks like I’m joining the parade here. We have a 2016 which we leased in September of that year. It currently has a little under 31,000 miles on it. This morning my wife went to go to church and saw “charger error” on the dash display and “External Charger Error” on the infotainment screen...

Re: Forgetting the charge door

I wonder if the switch/sensor that should lead to a dashboard warning doesn't need to be checked. I can't imagine they took that feature out between 2016 and 2018 models....

Re: Next Generation Soul EV will be Bigger! And for Europe only.

I sure hope that 2020 version with the 64 kWh battery is available by next September 15th when my current 2016 Soul EV's lease is due. After some cursory looks at the alternatives, we would really like to keep the overall utility and fun of the Soul. I will have a look at the Hyundai Kona however as...
