Hazeyone: sorry to hear you have so much trouble with your car. Hope this finally gets fixed.
Am trying to understand the different error messages we are getting and what fault each is related to. Have edited this post with updated info from the Facebook page and the German forum. It seems this is a common problem and has effected many cars in Norway, Canada and Germany. The strangest thing about this is the variety of error messages people are reporting and the variety of fixes to what seems to be a single very annoying and very expensive problem.
1/ Vinnymess in the first comment on this thread reported a "Charging fault error" which I assume is the same as the one in French above (Erreur de Chargeur !). He said "Since they changed the OBC I have had no more issues with the car."
2/ AyeJay and Fanbanlo have reported Charging Module Errors. The error message displayed is "Check EV light" which sounds like your (Hazeyone) "check electric vehicle system" Both had the Charging Module replaced (presumably the OBC) and have not reported errors since. It would be good if someone could post a photo of this error.
3/ Hazeyone states "..they finally found that I had a faulty battery controller. The controller was replaced.." and earlier "Kia found my Battery Management System to be faulty. They replaced it and the wiring harness connected to it" Despite changing all this the problem is still not fixed.
4/ On the German forum Leontine reports, "since tonight it will not charge, when inserting the three blue lights blink twice and then nothing..." They replaced the OBC - cost 8000 Euros. Didn't work. Then the Cable Assy-High Voltage. A new post here from Elmar Burke, "The lamps in the dashboard did not even blink an error. When I start the car, standing in the middle "charger fault". This error message is similar to the one seen by Vinnymess and others.
5/ My car has had the external charger error message displayed (see above) but this has not effected my ability to charge. It is not related to the errors here. Just using it to show the variety of error messages shown.
A large cluster of these errors seem to be in Quebec. They have 11 instances of these.

Just found much more on this :- The problem is a major one in Norway.
There is a thread on the Facebook page dealing with this issue. - https://www.facebook.com/groups/SoulEV/ ... 865467660/
Tommy Christensen from Norway ..."I belive its between 80-200 cars at this time with OBC problems. Still growing."
Pierre-Étienne Messier " ...it's about 6% of the Soul EV that have the problem. The percentage is about the same in Norway and here in Canada!"
