Re: Soul Spy?

I know this is an old thread, but I just wanted to say (in case it might help someone) that I was having lots of problems connecting, etc until I went into the Soul's all apps->settings->device connections and deleted my paired phone from the list. Then it worked perfectly. Then it was a simple matt...

Re: Has anyone replaced their 12V battery with lithium?

Well, not a buffer reserve per se, but it should be possible to get a "jump" from another car (including an ICE car) just enough to connect the traction battery relay and allow driving. Then the DC to DC charging system would provide power to the accessories, even if the 12V battery was ka...

Re: Miles per kwh confusion

Heh heh, can you imagine actually getting 99.9 km/kwh? That would be awesome. Maybe some day? ;)

Re: Miles per kwh confusion

I will reset the not-quite-correctly-named "energy consumption" display just to see how it changes (if at all). Your display is showing 8.1 km per kwh which translates to about 5 miles/kwh, which is quite a bit more than what mine is showing (usually around 4.0 to 4.1). Hopefully this will...

Re: Miles per kwh confusion

I have SoulEVSpy and the dongle (the one recommended by the author is no longer available it seems but I found one that other people seem to be using with success). I guess I should get around to hooking it up and seeing what's what. It's a 2016 and I've just hit 25000 miles so I can't imagine that ...

Re: Miles per kwh confusion

How do I reset the GOM? Is this something I can do myself or would a dealer have to do it? Also, that GOM has never shown an estimated range higher than about 86 miles. I figured since the advertised range for this vehicle is 93 miles that the GOM range is just reducing the estimated range because o...

Miles per kwh confusion

I have a couple of questions about the guess-o-meter. If I go into the history of my driving I see that the miles per kilowatt hour has actually gone up a tiny bit since I first got my vehicle yet my guess o meter has gone down because of a recent trip of about 90 miles. For a long time it was 3.9 m...

Re: Comprehensive online Kia Soul EV manual

Ah, good to know. Could come in handy. I needed an in-depth manual recently because I needed to remove the front bumper cover (some idiot backed into my Soul at a car wash. Luckily he was going slowly and also luckily he had a trailer hitch so 95% of the damage was concentrated in a small area). I b...

Re: Has anyone replaced their 12V battery with lithium?

Thanks! I'll check into it and see if there are any others that can give the SOC of lithium batteries. As for the other parameters being measured, this reminds me of something that always annoyed me about car manufacturers: Dummy warning lights that don't even come on until you ALREADY have a fatal ...
