Faults and Technical chat for the Kia Niro
2 posts • Page 1 of 1
Hi, does anyone know a way to keep the engine running besides putting a brick on the accelerator pedal on my Niro HEV to use an air-con bomb? I know on some hybrid cars you can use the diagnostic mode.is there something similar on the Niro?
The air con in the Niro is electric and doesn't need the engine unless the battery needs to be recharged, in which case the engine will start itself. Never tried it, so not sure if you can leave the ignition on, in Park, and exit the car, leaving the key behind. If you can, then you're good to go following the air bomb instructions. Let us all know how you get on!
