Re: Soul Spy?

Perhaps 206 is the value returned, when the car has no battery heaters fitted. . No. I have no battery heater. The value returned is zero. Actually I assume there is no sensor, so nothing at all is returned, but Torque has always shown zero. I will go look what SoulSpy is showing. Yes. Soulspy show...

Re: Soul Spy?

... Also the SoulsSpy shown SOH 81% but when Kia tested it was only 42%... This is a third car in the last week to show extreme battery failure. From these numbers 'The SOH changed from 81% to 42%.' It implies Max Deterioration 58%, Min Deterioration 0%. All 3 cars have Min Deterioration = 0% and a...

Re: Soul Spy?

- Jeroen - thanks for the update on your car. From your numbers 'The SOH changed from 83% to 45%.' It implies Max Deterioration 55%, Min Deterioration 0%. This is almost identical to the car in the USA just a few comments above. 'That car has been tested to be at 40% SOH by Kia, and having min det =...

Re: Slow level 2 charging and high OBC water temp

- There is something wrong with your coolant system. Yes. The OBC is liquid cooled. It uses an Electric Water Pump. The battery fan at the back has no relevance or connection to the motor cooling system at the front. Here's some testing I did of the EWP last year. :- Electric Water Pump I had a look...

Re: Anyone bought a Kia Soul EV?

- I just bought a second 2015 Soul EV. It was manufactured on the same day as my existing car. 4 1/4 years ago my original car cost $20,000 USD. Today I just bought that second car for $11,200 USD. For me to have 'won' by choosing to lease rather than buy, the lease would need to be lower than $172....
