There are still plenty of OBC errors occurring and the warranty coverage is expiring so DIY information is more important than ever.

2016 needs Onboard Charger
Likely problems with the Kia Soul OBC?I had to replace mine this winter. I was outside of the 160,000km EV powertrain warranty coverage and paid ~$4,000.
Replacing the On board Charger (OBC)I just bought a Kia Soul on-board charger for $950. I also downloaded the shop manual, which gives the pinouts and other details for this OBC.
-So, in summary:
- The electric water pump stopped working which resulted in the OBC to overheat and fail. That in turn resulted in the 40A fuse to blow.
