    Kia dealer has my SoulEV for 3+ months

    OBC not BMS. There is no coolant going through the BMS. See :- Charging Fault error.

    Kia dealer has my SoulEV for 3+ months

    We use the word GOM to describe the range displayed by the car. GOM stands for Guess-O-Meter. This acronym was created by Nissan Leaf users as an amusing way to remember that you cannot rely on this number. Altering slightly what Ian stated above "There is no mathematical relationship between...

    Electronic Parking Brake (EPB) firmware : (November 2023 - another recall)

    This seems to be confirmed on the Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Recalls Database Under Transport Canada Recall # 2020-310 they state "On certain vehicles, the transmission could be damaged if the driver shifts to the "P" (Park) position before the vehicle has stopped moving. As a result, the...

    Battery Recall for cars with E400 high-voltage battery.

    37510-E4252R is a re-manufactured pack for the 2014-2017 models with a battery heater. :- Remanufactured Pack Assembly Batt - kia (37510-E4252R) Kia assumes these packs have E400 cells, so they are included in this recall. Your car has had the BMS upgrade. That is why it has a new wiring...

    Battery Recall for cars with E400 high-voltage battery.

    Presumably all the cars with version 1 of the BMS upgrade that went into limp mode will want version 2. The cars that had version 1 but didn't go into limp mode yet may as well wait to see what the version 2 actually does. For those who have never done the upgrade at all I won't advise. I cannot...

    Battery Recall for cars with E400 high-voltage battery.

    I have now got the EV Warning / Limp Mode. Took the car to Kia. They said a new software update would be available in a couple of weeks. Until then I keep the car. It's fine to drive around town. Just have to go slowly up the hills. Clearly this software bug affects all the E400 batteries not...

    Battery Recall for cars with E400 high-voltage battery.

    No. It is not true. Some of the replacements in the US are new packs. I looked through the old threads to find an example and found this one.

    KIA niro EV with problem in ESP (EPB) problems for advanced users

    I think you are right. It's called Electronic Stability Control on the Soul EV. Presumably the same or similar to Electronic Stability Program. There's a discussion about it from back in 2016. Traction Control and Electronic Stability Control -

    Battery Recall for cars with E400 high-voltage battery.

    Here's another poll from the US Kia Soul EV Facebook page. The original author created a better poll than the one above but it got distorted. Hence as above we can't really trust any of this data. But it's interesting nevertheless. Is it really true that all replacement packs in the US are...

    Battery Recall for cars with E400 high-voltage battery.

    Here's a poll from the US Kia Soul EV Facebook page. The original battery pack in the 2014-2017 27 kWh Soul EV does not have E400 cells and is not covered by this recall. So why is it the original batteries that are having problems with this recall? Is this real or is it just the confusion of...

    Battery Recall for cars with E400 high-voltage battery.

    Here's a copy of a reply I made on a different thread : - Long wait for potential 3rd 2015 Kia Soul battery replacement 37510-E4200R and 37510-E4202R are both re-manufactured packs. They probably do not contain new cells. No-one knows what they actually do contain. We just know that this pack...

    Long wait for potential 3rd 2015 Kia Soul battery replacement

    37510-E4200R and 37510-E4202R are both re-manufactured packs. They probably do not contain new cells. No-one knows what they actually do contain. We just know that this pack is ten time cheaper than a new pack. The re-manufactured packs seem to trigger a much higher failure rate in the updated...

    Odd Acceleration Behavior

    Congrats on finding a fix for this. And thanks for posting the info about sensor data. The part cost is much less than $400.

    Battery Recall for cars with E400 high-voltage battery.

    This shows the part number for the BMS. E4350 is for a pack with a battery heater. It's on sale today at $12,348.63 :- Kia Part Store This is a bargain compared to MY2015-MY2017 Packs. E4250 packs sell for $16,032.98 You can buy 100 cells for 4000 dollars less than 96 cells. (Both use the newer...

    My Kia e niro stopped working!

    First guess was the 12V battery - but you replaced that. Second guess is a blown fuse. Check the fuse box. The 12V system fuses are safe for DIY. First result I get on google when looking for P1B77 is :- Hyundai Finds Causes For Ioniq 5's 12V Battery Drain, Reveals Fixes This fuse may not...

    Me too. I just looked up one of them ESP ESP = (Electronic Stability Program) :- KIA Niro: ESP(Electronic Stability Program) System / Description And Operation My Kia Soul EV doesn't have this. I'm guessing that 'autopilot' refers to Highway Driving Assist etc :- Driving assistance technology...

    Battery SoH 18%?

    Ooopie - in November 2021 you posted "I just got a 2017 and I want to find a good routine to keep the charge between 80 and 20 percent to preserve the battery health." Care to explain what this new post is about? Anyway assuming you live in the US the battery warranty is 10 years. The car...

    Alarm type tone with no visual indication.

    How does the sound compare to the "No Seat-belt" warning. I suggest you look through the settings to see if any other similar features have been turned on recently. Or have been added with a Navigation Software upgrade.

    Alarm type tone with no visual indication.

    Maybe the Road Kill warning. Try unchecking the setting - Setup / Navigation Page / Safety / Alert Tab/Road Kill

    Questions about purchasing a 2016 Soul EV.

    This may or may not be true. It is not helpful to post such assumptions. A re-manufactured battery is unlikely to be the same as one with all new cells. What is always true is that a replacement battery has more capacity than 70% of the old battery it replaced when that battery was new. Most...
