Re: 2016 Soul EV+ ... is my battery eligible for replacement?

I don't think battery replacement touches the coolant system, that's all under the hood while the battery is under the car. I would check your coolant level and I definitely agree with taking it to the dealer for them to log the error code. If they did touch the coolant system it may be that they d...

Re: 2016 Soul EV+ ... is my battery eligible for replacement?

OK, so I've had the car for a few days. Did a 30 mil-ish highway drive, and then ended up with about 30% SOC. Then at a stop light I floored the energy pedal up a hill to about 35-40mph. I noticed at that time an EV Warning light came on the dash. I scanned for codes and got P0C73 - Motor Electronic...

Re: Battery Replacement Summary

This sounds exactly like my experience, and the same model year with similar mileage. Even the same concerns I started to have in the summertime. :) I wouldn't say communication was great. The Kia Customer Service rep never seemed to have useful timelines for anything, but I attribute this to the su...

Re: 2016 Soul EV+ ... is my battery eligible for replacement?

So I just did my first driving test. Using the %SOC from Soul Spy for the field "battery.SOC_pct", I traveled 61.9 miles and used up 61.5% of charge. That was mostly at 65 mph speed in ambient temperatures around 50F. At highway speed, that would extrapolate to about 100 miles range. I'm s...

Re: 2016 Soul EV+ ... is my battery eligible for replacement?

I just got my car back today with a remanufactured battery pack. I don't know if it's the 27kWh pack or the 30kWh. Right now the GOM is still only reading 48 miles when 100% charged, but I drove 3.7 miles and only used 3% of charge, so it's looking good so far. Soul Spy is showing 96 cells so I thin...

Re: 2016 Soul EV+ Battery Replacement - Remanufactured?

Just curious, but this 70% SOH guarantee seems a little ridiculous. In theory, if they gave you a 70% battery and then in a year it deteriorated to 65%, they'd have to replace it again. Makes much more sense to give owners the best replacements available.

Re: 2016 Soul EV+ ... is my battery eligible for replacement?

So I think I was originally expecting the battery to be installed by the end of September. It's now November and the replacement battery has just arrived to the "warehouse" and is going to be shipped to the dealer in approximately two weeks. Luckily, given my range issues, the local dealer...

I'm afraid not. I'll try to ask.

Re: 2016 Soul EV+ ... is my battery eligible for replacement?

So update... Soul Spy was most recently reading like 68.5% battery health, and my 42 mile R/T commute, I was coming up with single digit range left sometimes. I took the car to the dealer, and they have approved me for an HV battery replacement!!! Should get here next week and then I can schedule ag...

Re: 2016 Soul EV+ ... is my battery eligible for replacement?

Hmmm, today Soul spy is saying 71.7%. At this rate, I'll be ready for a new battery in a couple weeks! I have yet to take it to the dealer. But my commute is about 44 miles round trip so I'm getting perilously close to not being able to make it, especially when winter weather comes. Right now my ran...
