Re: Battery Backorder? Since Nov '21

Well, I have an appointment to get the dealer to look at the battery SOH on July 1st. I just ran it down to 3% this afternoon (that was not the plan, but that's how it worked out) which got me into flashing turtle mode before I got home. But...since we're finally sort of starting summer here in the ...

Re: Battery Backorder? Since Nov '21

Yike! I guess I'm glad mine is holding around 70% SOH and seems to have flattened out in its deterioration, so the car is still usable.

Is yours the white one sitting outside at Kia of Puyallup?

Re: Reported battery SOH improving over time, rather than the reverse?

OK....then I just need to get an appointment and get the official measurement done again. As it's been warm the last week or so for winter in Seattle the GOM range estimate has improved a bit more to as much as 55 miles. I need to do another SoulSpy readout as well. I really want it to be at the 70%...

Reported battery SOH improving over time, rather than the reverse?

In the past year the estimated range of our 2016 Soul EV has dropped from the mid 80-mile range where it had been for three years or so to around 50 (or even as low as 47 after a really chilly night). Back in the fall, after I was able to get the BMS to recalibrate after the parking brake and BMS up...

Re: Do I have a chance?

I did get my dealer to follow that service bulletin before doing the BMS management update and the parking brake recall a few months ago. Fortunately the US warranty is 100k miles/10 years as I'm at 53k miles and six and a half years and my battery SOH, as reported by Soul Spy, sank to just under 70...

Re: UVO Modem down

It's not just 2015s. It affects 2016s as well. Basically when my free five years of myUVO was over (September 15th, 2021), it stopped working and when I inquired I got the "3G modem" story. The gist of my conversation with UVO support on the phone was "we knew it we were going to stop...

Re: Clipper Creek LCS-20 will not work

I have had a Clipper Creek EVSE fail and they were very gracious about it. The error indication appeared on the EVSE itself. But this sounds like an OBC (on-board charger) failure. Can you charge the car with the Level 1 EVSE that came with the car? If you can, then get back to Clipper Creek. If you...

Re: Just picked up Soul EV 2020 Limited

I wonder what it would take to get a 2020 in Vancouver and import it to the US. Probably a crazy idea..... Current plan is to buy out the lease and then hang on for another year to two....by which time the Tesla model Y, the 2021 Soul EV, the Ford Mustang Mach E and other choices should be available...

Re: Not charging, clicking then off

I have the same issue when I charge with a Clipper Creek 16 amp level 2 charger but it charges fine with my Kia 120 volt charger. Is that the same as what others see? OBC issue? NO - the OBC error prevents charging via any means except DC fast charging. Check your Clipper Creek EVSE for error indic...

Re: Just picked up Soul EV 2020 Limited - Not until 2021 in US

:( I just was on the US Kia site and saw the same thing - 2021 Soul EV coming to select dealers in the US in 2021. Well, that puts me in a spot. We extended the lease on the 2016 by six months already (and have been told we can only do that once) so in March 2020 we will have to either buy the car o...
