I saw an error on the dash during rapid charging my 2015 Soul EV. The error stated that there is a problem with the high voltage battery system. I connected an OBD II scanner and read the error code P1BA1, which after some googling turned out to be "Fan failure of the high voltage battery". I checked the battery temperature, which was 34-35 C. At that temp, the fan should be spinning, but when I opened the back it was silent. Torque showed 0Hz for "Batt Fan Feedback" and 2 for "Batt Fan Status". The car ignition was ON during the charging session (I was listening to music).
Has anyone seen a problem like that before? After disconnecting the charging cable and restarting the car, the error went away but I still did not hear the fan. Is there a way to test the fan manually (e.g. disconnect the fan connector and connect it to directly to 12VDC or something)? I bought the car second hand and the local dealer said they will not honor the warranty. I did not try to argue with them since everything with the car seemed just fine until now.
