First No Charge Event – KIA Soul EV

leave a comment »

My KIA Soul EV failed to finish charge at a ChargePoint station on 13 January, stopping at 52%. Upon arriving home, it refused to accept the Level 2 at home as well. After checking timer, timer bypass, the EVSE, I finally got it to charge on Level 1 only.

This all comes after my wife’s identical KIA Soul EV charger went out last week on 2 January and had to be replaced 3 January, and on the same day her replacement charger again refused to charge and is at the dealership awaiting a backordered charger.

Update: I tried Level 2 this morning and it’s charging. I’m contacting KIA dealership when they open.

Update: both vehicles had onboard chargers replaced.

Repair count: his 1 hers 2.

A lot of tech in a small package, read cozy. Extra $750 for DC charging even on Premier trim. Surprised to see wireless charging capatible. Four seat warmer nice.
