Re: Heat pump stopped working, no apparent cause

A little update. Dealer tried a fix, but it unfortunately didn’t work. I think it was a new SW update, but not 100% sure. Anyway the message they got from Kia Norway was that they were working hard on a solution, so both Kia and the dealer acknowledges the issue. But I got nothing in writing as usu...

Re: Am I charging too often

If it's reporting 16 miles and you aren't doing much more than that, then I think you have a battery that has gone bad. I suspect that when you bought the car it had just had a BMS update which clears what the BMS knows about the battery so it reports full range. Over the next little while it then l...

Re: Am I charging too often

It is saying 16 miles expected range but you are still doing a 60 mile trip? That's weird.

Re: Inaccurate energy consumption calcs on trip computer???

I checked while charging mine on a 240V 30A EVSE. After 1 hour my breaker is a similar temperature (there is a thermal element to breakers so this is expected), but everything else is at ambient to maybe 1C higher. Right now you don't have anything that is hot enough to cause a fire, but you are run...

Re: Inaccurate energy consumption calcs on trip computer???

Better for battery life to only charge to 80%.

OBD 2 dongle and Soul Spy will tell you what's going on, both with cell voltages and cell temperatures.

Re: Inaccurate energy consumption calcs on trip computer???

In theory it should trip after 3 hours. In practice it almost certainly will not. The breaker is measuring the current, it can't tell how hot any of the rest of the parts of the circuit is getting, If you have a brand new good quality socket with good contacts and good connections to it, you'll prob...

Re: Torque PIDs question. CEC and CED Reset?

CEC and CED are values in the BMS. You may be able to set up Torque to do a difference between CED and a fixed value, with a reset option being to copy over the current CED value to that fixed value. Similarly for CEC.

Re: Inaccurate energy consumption calcs on trip computer???

1) It should be 12A not 13A at 120V. The 15A circuit is good for 12A continuous load. 2) You are reporting it charging at 1.82kW which is 15.1A. I don't believe it is dropping to the 13A it claims and is just signalling the car at 16A. That's OK if you plug it in to a 20A circuit, but you aren't. 3)...

Re: Inaccurate energy consumption calcs on trip computer???

That cable is scary, I hope you have a proper 20A circuit that it's plugged in to. If you have that plugged in to a normal 15A socket via the adapter that it comes with, you are asking for an electrical fire! Yes, the losses will vary, including whether the water pump, radiator fan and battery fan n...
