Re: Everything dead after “stop vehicle check brakes” warning

Just a quick fyi in case noone stopped to explain this.
The reason why you got a “stop vehicle check brakes” notification, is because the power brakes motor used to create the vacuum is powered by your 12 volt battery.
Basicly the car is warning you that you don't have power brakes anymore.

Re: Fog lights for a base Soul EV

I was in the process of doing that for my Soul EV, but kind of lost interest, because I can't seem to find the time to continue the project. Needless to say, purchased a fog light kit from ebay. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Xenon-Halogen-Fog-Lamps-Driving-Light-Kit-Pair-for-2015-2019-Kia-Soul-EV-/152904...

Nope. Never mentioned anything about it, salesman had never even heard of this feature. :lol:

Re: Kia Access app and UVO Link

Congratulations. You now have a Canadian spec Soul EV.

We never received the UVO Intelience/Kia Access integration in any trim level for the 1st generation vehicles.

At least they rectified that for the 2nd generation...

Re: seat covers? seat cleaning?

Well, let's just say I decided to start the year with a little car make-over. I pulled the trigger on a complete set of universal car seat covers from a local seller/installer in my city. The result was far better than I expected. https://ibb.co/HzNYBvM https://ibb.co/dc8Zmpj Almost a full color mat...

Re: Battery Cooling fan Service/Cleaning

Well, had a look at the fan...really nothing to report. All practically brand new.
I guess it is true. The battery pack is kept under vacuum by the fan, not pressure as I was expecting to find.

Battery Cooling fan Service/Cleaning

Good day all, Does anyone have information with regards to how regularly you should service/clean the HV/traction battery cooling fan in the lower trunk area of the car? I'm nearing the 2 years of ownership mark, and have yet to find any mention of such maintenance. Either online or in the manual. I...

Re: End of the line for combustion engines?

The article points out that HFC vehicles can be FC/hybrids (like the Clarity) , i.e. they have motive-power batteries and provide regenerative braking and instantaneous power increase, with which a pure FC vehicle has difficulty. It doesn't say this, but I imagine, when the vehicle slows or stops, ...

Re: End of the line for combustion engines?

And when I suggested fuel cell/battery hybrid for heavy vehicles, I didn't realise this is already available in the Honda Clarity FCV. Not just Honda, Toyota and Hyundai are following along, and have hydrogen fuel cell vehicles in production as well. For heavy commercial vehicles, hydrogen is defin...

Re: New software update installation (video)

The new update actually added a new feature called "Sounds of Nature". I first noticed this in my father-in-law's 2020 Niro PHEV.
Now I have an even better chance of falling asleep while driving. Thanks Kia!
