Hello, who can advise?
We bought a KIA Soul 2017 in the USA, Initially we had a range of 100+ miles. We exported the car to Aruba, and according to KIA USA we lost the warrantee due to that. Today with 26.000 miles on the odometer we only have a range of 48 miles after a full charge.
We connected the Soul to a car diagnostic computer and could read all voltage of the 192 cells. All cells had a voltage of 3.86V except cell 123 we saw 3.76V.
Can anybody advise what cell voltages should be?
I have been reading on this https://www.mykiasoulev.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=662 that they calculated the capacity with the formula 192 cells * 43Ah * 3.75V = 30.96kWh, in my case I would expect a higher capacity as we observed higher voltages.
Is this true?
Can anybody advise on how to understand and interpreted the voltage values found?
Thanks in advance
