Re: New Niro PHEV won't charge on Wallpod

The Niro spec says the charger for a PHEV is type 2 3.3kW. Is your wallpod compatible, it seems to come in many configurations.

Re: Kia self charge hybrid - 100% battery charge

My HEVs have usually fluctuated between 30-70%. Lower charge after a lot of stop-start, higher charge after coasting down long downhills. I've never reached 100% charge, the management system probably won't allow it. As Winter comes in, your engine will probably run all the time on your short journe...

Re: Auto Hold

Auto hold is a great idea in principle, but flawed in that it has to be turned on for every engine start, and the brake lights stay on. When I'm driving at night, I don't use auto hold, I just flick the electronic handbrake on, it does hold the car even in Drive and the brake lights go off. The hand...

Re: UVO glitches

Thanks for that, Gerd. I've just installed Kia Connect (it hasn't overwritten UVO).. After signing in, it looks like, and has identical functionality, to the UVO app. I still can't remotely unlock the doors. I'll see if the app reports the doors are left unlocked after my next trip. I'd surmise it's...

UVO glitches

I'm finding that UVO often notifies me that I have left the doors unlocked, but this is not true. Also, I cannot unlock the doors remotely (but then again why would I want to?), it says [Fail] cannot unlock doors,,check status. Anyone else with similar experience?

Re: Unable to login to UVO

New user of UVO, not experienced your current problems. It may be that your account has become inactive if not used for some time. In the current UVO app there is a 'terminate account' option. Might be worth starting from scratch again. Before you do that, have you tried logging into kia.com with yo...

Re: Intelligent speed limit warning system

If you want to be warned if you go over the speed limit, I suggest you use the speed limiter which actually does what it "says on the tin". Mind you, if you're going downhill, it doesn't stop you exceeding the set speed, but just bongs away merrily until you apply the brakes, or the left p...

Intelligent speed limit warning system

Not at all sure why this system is called "intelligent". All it seems to do is display the speed limit as the car passes a speed limit sign. It doesn't change the speed limiter or the cruise control setting. Insofar as it is interlinked with the sat nav, neither does it forewarn of an upco...
