Re: Do I have a chance?

- Don't drive the car any more than you have to. You want to have enough km left on the odometer so that you can make two round trips to the Kia Service. To get an accurate reading of the SOH you need the battery to recalibrate. Take the car to a heated garage. Charge it to 100% After charging has f...

Re: Upgrading the Korean Map

- Added the latest update - ST.PSEV.KR.E546.211206 Again not much new. (Which is why I skipped the Fall Update.) Got an error first time I updated. https://abload.de/img/photo_2022-01-09_12-1s8kcs.jpg I re-downloaded the entire update, re-transferred it to the SD Card, and re-installed it to the car...

Re: Analysis of a replacement battery.

On December 30th 2021 the odometer reads 116,590km. That's 29,597km on the new battery. Here's the latest Torque reading https://abload...

Re: Emergency use of EPB

I just tested this on my 2015. Driving on a dry, quiet, straight, road at 50km/h. I pulled the EPB lever up. The car braked suddenly. At the same time there were warning beeps from the dash. I don't think there was any 'pulsing' of the brakes. Just hard deceleration. The dash showed strong regenerat...

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

- If SoulSpy says 76% then you are probably within a few months of hitting the level at which you will get a free battery replacement. You may as well start talking to your service center about this. Find out if the SOH test is free. If so go and get it done now. They will 'accidentally' reset your ...

Re: MSDS EV battery pack

This thread suggests the battery will need replacing within a few years. As long as your commute is possible with a 70% degraded battery, then you w...
