Re: Sudden Range Issues

Just to follow up. Since the updates, the vehicle range has now been predictable based on the kw per 100 and the weather. All is well.

Re: Sudden Range Issues

That's a BMS update where the BMS firmware gets reset. The fix is meant to be for battery heating in cold climates, not range recalculation. Over the next week or so as it learns your driving style you may find it drops back to where it was before. Hmmm, so you are saying bad is normal for these Ki...

Re: Sudden Range Issues

Went see the dealer, there was an update for the 12 volt battery issue, hopefully that was the issue. Also another update that corrected how the range was calculated. After the update my range went from 134 km to 162 km. Same day

Well, today the 12 volt battery is stone dead. I am looking forward to getting out of this purchase one day. Constant issues with this thing.

Re: Sudden Range Issues

The dealer decided to have another look at my vehicle, they don't believe Kia Canada either. After more test driving they decided to change what they referred to as the "brain". That would be the second time. It is a box the size of a thick briefcase on top of the motor. I get new key fobs...

Re: Sudden Range Issues

Well I have the scanner, not sure how to check the battery yet. Also not sure how to upload the ELM327 photo, or any photo. The dealer had the car for the day for some tests. They said that Kia Canada suggested we change our driving habits. So 108km is normal for a 7 month old 2017 Kia Soul in their...

Re: Sudden Range Issues

I should have the scanner by Wednesday, what does the ELM327 identifier tell me? There is a list of recommended adapters here - recommended obd2 adapter? Hopefully you saw this already and chose one that works. If not ELM Identifier will quickly show whether the one you bought works or not. There a...

Re: Extended Warranty for EV 2017

Unless something has changed, you should get an 8 year warranty on the EV components, 5 year on the rest of the car in Canada. As for components failing, mine started failing after 30 days and its not getting any better. Unfortunately, once you buy one and accept the rebate you are committed for a f...

Re: Mud flaps

I bought front and rear from the dealer, front ones fit perfect, rears were not usable. Mine is a 2017, the rocker panel is different on the older EV's that we compared.
