    Mythical type1 granny charger cable

    Are you using an extension cord? Have you tried different outlets? Did it used to work? That charger pulls 11 amps and sometimes that can be enough to trip some outlets (yes I know most circuits are 15 amp, but electricity is weird). Some GFCI circuits trip well before 15 amps

    Driving mode B on highway?

    regarding brake lights, they do come on when you have 2-4 on re-gen, on 1 (light re-gen make not activate them) experiment at night and you can see when the brake lights get actiated

    2016 Soul EV+ Battery Replacement - Remanufactured?

    Weird... I'm in Canada too and my 2017 has a 10/160,000 warranty. I wonder why Kia added the 2 years for 2017.

    Kia dealer has my SoulEV for 3+ months

    My 2017 does NOT have the 80% charge option. Are you saying that your 2017 DOES have an 80% option? That would be the first time I've ever heard that

    Kia dealer has my SoulEV for 3+ months

    I have a 2017 as well. My range is around 58 miles and they've not authorized an replacement yet, although they absolutely should (there is some discrepancy of how healthy the battery is) The state of health (SOH) of the battery needs too be less than 70%. I'd guess you're is around 75%.

    80% or 100% charge scheduling not starting when programmed. 2016 Soul EV+

    Since that option is gone (my '17 has never had that option), the only option is to do math. Figure out how many percentage your home charger can add in say 10 minutes, then calculate how many 10 min periods you need get the SOC to 75% and set the timed charge to that end period say your...

    Kia dealer has my SoulEV for 3+ months

    as an aside, my 2017 has 54,000 miles and is under 70% SOH so it will be getting a new battery soon too. Well, who knows what "soon" means, but hopefully sometime this year. From my reading, I'll need to implement a way that we only charge it to 80% capacity so that it won't need another one

    2016 Soul EV+ Battery Replacement - Remanufactured?

    My dealer's thought was that 69.2% might be argued by Kia Canada as being within a rounding error of the computer measuring the SOH. I'm not concerned about them honouring the warranty, I've got loads of time/mileage before the warranty runs out. thanks though, but this dealer has been good to...

    2016 Soul EV+ Battery Replacement - Remanufactured?

    wow. I hadn't noticed that setting the end time is possible. Thanks! still, if we had the option to turn off automatically at 80% that would have been great

    I have 96,000km (60,000miles) on it. Thanks for adding your data, maybe I'm not so responsible for killing the battery. afaik, all 2018's came with the 30kwh battery, but I haven't actually checked

    2016 Soul EV+ Battery Replacement - Remanufactured?

    Hi all This thread has been a great read, I appreciate everyone's thoughts! My 2018 Soul EV is down to 69.2 % SOH, my dealer wants to wait until it's around 67% before requesting a replacement. We were planning to wait until the spring to have it tested again, but with the experiences here, I...

    Level 1 charger with extension cord

    When I first got the car I used an extension cord. It was a 12 gauge, 25 foot cord with clear plug ends. One day I looked closely at the female end and the interior of the plug was burnt. It didn't catch fire, but it could have. If you *have* to use an extension cord, use the shortest one...

    Charging Fault error.

    Hi there, just started reading this massive thread, but I have the same problem I owned the Kia 4 days before the supplied L1 EVSE got the charger error. I tried a neighbourhood L2 EVSE and it wouldn't work either. Took it into the dealer and they diagnosed a OBC fault. The part will take 3...
