Re: Trying to implement EV battery claim

Maybe a copy of the approving email (?).

My BT ODB just came in so maybe I can check soulspy while in there?


I hope you made it.
I doubt your SOH is better than 50%. Let's see what Sou;EV Spy says.

Re: Heat pump stopped working after climate software update SA427

Great idea, Perhaps you should tell KIA that that is your intent unless they come through with the same fix they have rolled out in Norway.

ABRP is a route planner. There does not appear to be anything helpful to configure Torque.
