Re: Charging Fault error.

... I ask as this failure immediately follows record cold here in CO, ... wondering whether this is the root-cause (not identified yet by Kia if it was). The bulk of failures at the start of this thread were in Quebec which led us to suspect that extreme cold was indeed the root-cause. But over the...

Re: Replacing the On board Charger (OBC)

- Glad you got this fixed. And to know the primary cause of this problem, A cascading series of faults. Blowing the 40A fuse because either the EWP or OBC fails sounds a little strange. Both have 10A fuses. The 10A fuse for the EWP is shown here in the PCB Block. Presumably the blown fuse is the 40A...

Re: Changing battery from 2015 (27kw) to 2018 (30Kw)

- Ian, the BMS module is inside the battery box. Swapping the entire box is much easier than opening it and swapping individual cells. There are no issues with wiring or BMS adjustments if you swap the entire box. Possible minor differences may be seen in the VMCU because the power and weight of the...

Re: 2016 needs Onboard Charger

- Here's an old post of mine from December 2017. see :- Charging Fault error. As you can see from the Quebec DIY fix an official GDS connection was not required. It is possible to recycle the coolant successfully without having the software support. --------------------------------------------- - I ...

Re: Charging Fault error.

- This thread is old - but still contains lots of useful information. Posts here no longer show up in Google searches unless you are really specific. Hopefully by adding this comment the entire thread will get a bit more priority in Google's algorithm. There are still plenty of OBC errors occurring ...

Re: Cells in HV battery

... Question: is there a SIMPLE method to test modules or individual cells, to identify damaged modules/cells? I expect I can dismantle the modules further to individual cells... SIMPLE - NO. But yes it can be done. Just make sure to follow all the safety procedures. Here's two videos showing the d...

Re: It is at a huge Chevy dealer and shows 51 mile range but good price and pretty

-
Drive to a steep mountain. Accelerate hard while going up.
If the car turtles despite being fully charged you have a very degraded battery.
Do not buy the car unless it still has warranty coverage of the battery.
