Re: Kia Niro rear chrome trim

First of all, let's be clear what we mean by "right". By Haynes manual convention, the right side of the car is from the driver's seat looking forward. On that basis, the piece in the photograph, despite its being upside down confusing the issue, would appear to be a right rear or a left front. Just...

Re: Auto Hold

Can't answer your first question, suspect only Kia would know. I imagine your level 1 paddle is equivalent to me just taking my foot off the gas and coasting in my 2017 Hev. This is low level regenerative "engine braking" when the brake lights shouldn't come on. Your level 3 is equivalent to the hig...

Re: PHEV2 & Economy 7

Assume you use X kWh per year charging your car. If you don't change to E7, then cost = (6000 + X) x 16.6p. If you do change, and assuming you only charge car and do nothing else at night, then cost = (6000 x 20.5p) +(X x 9.1p) Tipping point is when these two costs are equal, so X = 3,500 kWH. At ar...

Re: Mirrors not unfolding

Can you hear any whirring noise, meaning the mirrors are getting power, but are somehow stuck. If no noise, check the fuse for the mirror motors, see the user manual.

Re: Spoeed Camera Warning

Speed camera and speed limit information is provided by Tom Tom to the Kia satnav. It will show fixed cameras and speed limits known at the time of the current software on the SD card mounted in the dashboard. This is updated by Live updates when you connect the satnav to a WiFi hotspot on your mobi...

Re: Dash cam 2019 nero 4 hybrid

Not had a problem, Halfords fitted a Nextbase dashcam with all the wiring concealed. It starts up when I put the ignition on, and turns off ditto off. All trouble free and no interference.

Re: Niro sub woofer control

My first reaction to this post is that someone is taking the p. But, in the spirit of friendly advice and cooperation that should be a feature of this forum I will try to help. My 2017 Niro has the top of the range JBL sound system and it definitely doesn’t have anything under the driver seat, nor t...

Re: SD card music?

The SD card slot is used by the satnav. Transfer your music to a USB flash drive and insert it in one of the USB sockets below the dash. Then select MEDIA, you should see your music.

Re: Niro 4 reversing camera
