Re: Soul Spy?

Tested out the Soul EV Spy today, looking good. I prefer to use Torque Pro + custom dashboards, but this makes it easier for newbies to get the technical info they want. The info matches up exactly as Torque Pro (which makes sense because the data is all coming from the same PIDs) How does my batter...

Re: 2015 Soul EV: My Battery Replacement Story

Sweet! That's great to hear, and you're welcome. In and out in 15 mins at a Kia dealer, that must be a record time! The magic keywords are "Give me HV battery SoH report!". Now the question is, how long this entire ordeal will take for you? For me it was done in 8 days, but others had to w...

Re: Problem with battery cooling fan

Ouch, that looks like really bad corrosion. Used car dealers are really good at hiding flooded cars. Always get a CarFax / VIN check before buying used! (Not sure if those exist in EU. In the US its legally required to disclose flooded cars). In the meantime, I'd recommend not DCFC'ing until the fan...

The Min/Max cell voltages have started to become slightly unbalanced: min sits at 4.12V a...

Re: Using the State of Charge Gauge

You're better off just using the direct % SoC reading from the car, under the EV screen. No counting, no guessing. This is what I use and I keep this screen up all the time when I drive.

Re: Brakes seized on new Soul EV after 10 months

That whaling noise from the rear when backing up is a stuck parking brake? My car has been doing that for over a year and I've been ignoring it, since it just sounded like squeaky suspension. When I bring in the car for service next time I'll have the dealer take a look at it. On the other hand, if ...

Re: 2020 Soul EV - 64kWh battery: 200+ mi

Snapped a few mores photo at the Silicon Valley Auto Show today. Nothing new, but this was my first time seeing it in person. It was the fully loaded version with heated & vented seats. I think the rear 3/4 looks fine, but front and back views are fugly. Overall, I felt that the new model was ne...

Re: 2016 Soul EV+ Battery Replacement - Remanufactured?

FWIW, mine doesn't look like to be remanufactured/refurb. 37510 E4000 PACK ASSY-BATTERY https://i.lensdump.com/i/8rehDZ.jpg I wouldn't worry too much about it. As long as you're getting 27 kWh usable, it doesn't really matter whether it's new or refurb. To be fair, the battery warranty does clearly ...

Re: New owner, 2019 Luxury with roof

Unfortunately, you can't do anything about the seat adjustability or the missing subwoofer. However, you can replace the front headlight low beam (and high beam) halogens for HIDs and they make a huge difference in both light color and brightness. I have 5000K HIDs and would never go back to the dim...
