Re: 2017/18 Kia Niro PHEV - P034x camshaft position sensor

Hi. I have a 2017 Niro 3 and had the exact same fault. Dealer replaced one camshaft position sensor and all was good for about 1 week, then fault recurred. Dealer replaced a different camshaft position sensor (apparently there's two) and all has been okay since. All done under warranty. A pain, as t...

Re: MIL & Camshaft Position Sensor

Well that didn't last long. Engine Management Light came on again today and OBD code is P0340, Camshaft Position Sensor. So similar error code and this time the dealer can't take the car in for repair for two weeks.

Re: Updating maps

I updated the map and infotainment system. Follow the instructions on the links above and all was easy. Took about 30 minutes updating the system in the car and a few more minutes for Dab stations to reconnect.

Re: Updating maps

Hi. I have a MY17 Niro HEV and am thinking about updating the map.

How long did it take to update in the car? Also when you copied the files across were there 8 files?

Thanks

Re: MIL & Camshaft Position Sensor

A couple of things I've noticed since the camshaft sensor was replaced: 1. car is more responsive to the throttle (less hesitation), 2. better mpg (I'm consistently getting high 50's to low 60's mpg around town, whereas before I rarely achieved these figures). I haven't taken it on a motorway yet, t...

Re: MIL & Camshaft Position Sensor

Hi. Well the car's been finally fixed. Took a week to get it booked in to my local Kia dealer. They diagnosed the same fault: Camshaft Position Sensor. Took them a week to get the replacement part. Took them a week and a half (with me hassling them) to actually fit it! But all well now and fixed und...

MIL & Camshaft Position Sensor

Hi. My Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL), came on whilst driving. I used an ODBR reader and it indicates one fault: Camshaft Position Sensor B Circuit Range/Performance Bank 1 (P0365 & P0366). I've booked the car into the dealer and hopefully this is a simple fix, although they want £126 to diagn...

Re: Range display acting strangely

Well, it looks like small top-ups (6-7 litres) do confuse the 'range' display. Filled up petrol tank and all is well. Thanks.

Re: Range display acting strangely

Thanks. Thinking of doing what you suggested. The thing is, because of lower mileage due to pandemic, I've been doing the 6.5 litre top up for a while. I did read somewhere that a 6 litre minimum was required and with fuel price increases I'm topping up with less volume.

Range display acting strangely

Hi. I recently topped up my 2017 Niro hybrid with 6.5 litres of petrol at 100 ‘miles to empty’ or remaining range. The fuel gauge (bars) went up, but the miles to empty/range stuck at 100. I’ve subsequently put more petrol in and used my car and the ‘miles to empty’ started at 100 but is going up at...
