Re: Bosch charger fried and 2016 will not charge

...I'm trying to figure out if the car killed the Bosch charger or vice versa. I its the car, will Kia pay for the Bosch? Kia has never admitted any fault. They are unlikely to do so now. It is only Bosch chargers that do this when the Kia OBC goes wrong. I am surprised Bosch hasn't updated their E...

Re: Cells in HV battery

- There's some interesting battery videos from Ukraine. In the first one we see the swollen battery cell from a failed pack. They show a video from a car that has an 80km GOM at 100% but turtles at 30km. This is a very failed battery. Reminds me of my old Hyundai Blueon. https://abload.de/img/swolle...

Re: Bosch charger fried and 2016 will not charge

- This was a common error about 5 years ago. Discussed at length on the Charging Fault Error thread. For a list of 'smoked' Bosch EVSE's see Dec 2016 : Charging Fault error Almost everyone got a replacement OBC from warranty and this hasn't been much of an issue recently. Let's hope all the replacem...

Re: Cells in HV battery

- No. They are not just sending new cells to be replaced out in re manufactured packs. It's a different part number and a very different price. One comes from the battery manufacturer in South Korea, the other comes from a re-manufacturing plant in Texas. Looking at the Kia parts website - Kia Soul ...

There is a diagnostic system for reading HVAC trouble codes from the console unit. Press the MODE switch more then 4 times within 2 seconds while pressing the OFF switch. The Kia Soul EV error codes are here - Kia Soul: Heater & A/C Control Unit (FATC) Repair procedures

Re: Miles per kwh confusion

- If you reset the instrument cluster at the top of a mountain, you will have a very good 'energy consumption' number at the bottom. (This example was actually caused by a glitch in the Navi software - not a reset - but the idea is the same.) As you can see this does not fool the GOM into giving you...

I was editing my post above at the same time Ian commented on a draft version of that post.
His reply was to a short comment about the GOM.

Re: Miles per kwh confusion

- Reset the 'Energy Consumption' shown in the instrument cluster by pushing the triangle button by the steering wheel. The value we call GOM which shows the estimated range is officially called DTE on this display. https://abload.de/img/photo_2021-06-18_15-3wjjhc.jpg https://abload.de/img/photo_2021...

Re: Cells in HV battery

- There is still so much we don't know about the battery including the size of the pouch cells. It seems likely that the E375 and the E400 cells are identical in size because my car had a replacement battery where 192 E375 cells were taken out of the pack and 192 E400 cells put in. The position and ...

Re: Upgrading the Korean Map

- Have now installed the June 2021 software. (ST.PSEV.KR.E544.210511) Again it doesn't seem to add much. But it did cause 2 glitches. 1/ The Charge Timer lost the 80% setting. But did keep the time. https://abload.de/img/photo_2021-06-03_23-50tkzz.jpg 2/ The energy consumption reset to 99.9 https://...
