Re: Included Level 1 Charger (North America vs. Europe)

Interesting! I'm tempted to open my Canadian one up to see and compare, but I want to wait till I get my Level 2 installed in case I drop something in to it :) Yes, those 2 lumps on the left will be the line relays, see how they have the current sensing loops after them? That block on the right as y...

Re: Soul Spy?

By the way, the OBD-II port in the Soul EV is in a very unfortunate position: under a cover on the left side of the dash. And it's RIGHT under the cover; so if you stick a Bluetooth adapter on it, you won't be able to put the cover back on. I tried using this but even it's too big to close the cove...

Re: Soul Spy?

Spent some more time tonight with my cheap chinese copy of the ELM327 and the car in the garage on charge. With filtering I'm able to pull in the ids that others are seeing. Here's an additional bit of info, I thought I'd try some standard OBD-II commands and found the following: >090a 7EA 10 17 49 ...

Re: Soul Spy?

That's another cheap Chinese copy rather than a real one. Just the ELM327 chip is $21 from the manufacturer http://elmelectronics.com/obdic.html and that's without the connector, the Bluetooth chip and the CAN transciever to say nothing of the other bits needed to make the board. At this point I'm c...

Re: Soul Spy?

Which ELM327 adapter should I get if I want to help out? Any of the cheap ones on e bay? I have a cheap bluetooth ELM327 adaptor from ebay and while I only spent about 10 minutes with it last night I was having problems getting it to monitor the bus. I suspect there's just too much traffic for it t...

Re: TPMS sensors, same as 2015 Soul?

No, you only need the Quickset. The TP30 is only needed to read the sensor ids if the tyre shop doesn't tell you them. I'm a bit of a nerd and it is really neat to just wander around and read the pressures and temperatures on each tyre without removing the dust cap from the valve stem :-) N.B. If yo...

Re: TPMS sensors, same as 2015 Soul?

I believe they are the same. I've got an ATEQ Quickset and an ATEQ VT30 that I bought to deal with our Odyssey. Even with the latest update they don't show the Soul EV in either of them. The VT30 read them as Kia sensors and the Quickset read the summer tyre ids out of the CAN bus with setting up fo...

Re: Soul Spy?

Can we relabel as 0-7 rather than 1-8 please? As an embedded software developer that's what I'm used to seeing.

Re: Rolling in park? Anyone else?

Probably just needs the linkage adjusting slightly. This isn't something new for electric vehicles, transmission selector linkages needed adjusting on gasoline powered cars as well.

Re: Soul Spy?

That looks fantastic! A CAN bus monitor in the middle to dump out what it is sending and receiving should tell us everything we need. Where I am cautious on this is that many of the dealership diagnostic tools want to talk to headquarters to get updates etc and part of that is often authentication a...
