Re: 2015 Soul EV: My Battery Replacement Story

It's a particularly hot weekend here in SoCal, with temps above 120F (49C) : https://i1.lensdump.com/i/0WnSp5.md.jpg I decided to check the battery data since I was curious, and also it's been a while since the last check. Update on my car after exactly 2 years and 6 months and 15.3k miles later: ht...

Re: Charging Fault error.

Got my car back after OBC replacement. Took about 2 days, and was covered under EV System Warranty (10yr/100k). After 2 faulty OBCs, I hope they've improved the design by now. :roll: https://i.lensdump.com/i/iwxUoc.jpg Looks like the new OBC is able to boost the input current to over 28A (28.6A in t...

Re: 2015 Soul EV: My Battery Replacement Story

Hey all, Happy Holidays!! Does anyone know if the new Kia/Hyundai 64 kWh battery will fit in a 27 kWh 2016 Soul EV? Dimensions, physical connections, BMS etc? Sorry if this is a dumb question I’m a newbie to EV’s and just had my battery replaced under warranty. The range has already dropped from 96...

Re: Charging Fault error.

My 2015 Soul EV just stopped charging today. I'm getting a "External Charger Error" and the dreaded 3-LED blue blink on the dash. I tried multiple Lv2 charging stations, but looks like the OBC is toast. This car already had the OBC replaced before (by the previous owner) and was charging a...

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...

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.
