Well, it also works on the Fiat 500e, so I guess it isn't strictly Kia-specific either ;)

On a side note, I've ordered the new Kia Niro Electric and will hopefully get it at the end of this year. I hope that cable will work on the Niro too. I'm curious to see how much of the code that can be reused for the Niro.

all right. I go back to fight with the ovms hehe.

To activate the opening of the loading port, must this function be activated?

When I finish my work, I release it.

Yes, but there is a bug I haven't had time to fix that makes that function somewhat unstable.

Well, it works.
It does not indicate the pressure of the wheels and there will be no load gate.

very happy with the OVMS. great job.

Hello,
New to OVMS and Kia Soul Forums. Just setup OVMS V3 module on my 2018 Kia Soul EV today since in Canada there is no UVO for the Kia Soul. App displays charge/lights/doorlock/temp corrrectly. However I am having some of the following issues and wondering if anyone has run into the same:
-Lock and unlock operates all the doors EXCEPT the driver door
-Radio turns on automatically and starts playing music while module is connected.
-Sometimes when I press the lock button on my key fob, I get a unregistered command notification from the OVMS app

I have unplugged the OVMS v3 module for now until I get some advise.
Thanks

hi
In my model, EU version, I do not receive the data that comments.

Have you installed the latest firmware? v3.1.008. ?

The simple cable gives you access to the primary CAN. This gives access to various control systems of the car. BMS, OBC, TPMS ...
I already have access to these using a Bluetooth adapter and Torque.
There was no strong reason for me to switch to using OVMS before now.

The new cable allows access to a second CAN. This is where the data for the Navi, Climate system and UVO will be found.
This data I have not seen before, and I am hoping that it will eventually allow OVMS to act as a UVO replacement.

Perhaps!
