Re: 2016 Soul EV+ HID install guide

Does it dazzle oncoming drivers? Or is the spread pretty good?

Re: Make your own trunk shelf?

I personally wouldn't bother trying to make your own. This could be a major source of rattling as the OEM one fits very tight with the rubber around the "posts" that fit in the slots on the car.

Re: Level 1 charging - climate precondition??

Is there a way to precondition the battery without activating climate control? Seems like at this point my best option is to install a level 2 charger, even a lower power one. Just so that I have enough to keep the battery topped up during preconditioning. Then again, does losing 3% of range before ...

Re: Level 1 charging - climate precondition??

Interesting. It's not winter here yet, but winters here get around -12ºC at the absolute worst. Typical lows more like 0ºC. Right now with temperatures close to 20C, I seem to get 4% per hour charge (which seems about 1.0 kWh/hr) reliably on Level 1. I do not have a way to charge at work, but my dai...

Re: Level 1 charging - climate precondition??

Thanks, I suppose it never occurred to me that the energy use during climate conditioning could exceed 2kW, Usually when I'm driving around climate seems to max out at 2kW and that's if it's particularly cold or hot. For some reason I thought L1 was 3.3kW but perhaps it is not. I wish there were a m...

Level 1 charging - climate precondition??

I use a level 1 charger for my Soul EV and when I use the climate control "scheduled" I notice that when I get to the vehicle the vehicle loses its full charge usually to 98% from 100%. Is this because level 1 cannot keep up with the rate electricity is being used by climate control? It se...

Re: Plastic "hubcap" on wheel

Thanks, I didn't realize they were screwed into the back. I started prying on it and glad I stopped because I probably would've broken the piece! I appreciate the info!

Plastic "hubcap" on wheel

I just purchased a used 2016 Soul EV+ and I'd like to replace the hubcap as the one on the wheel is damaged. How is this removed? Is there a part number for a replacement?

Love the car so far.
