Re: MIL & Camshaft Position Sensor

I haven't experienced it, I don’t know if its simple to fix, but it's almost certainly covered by warranty. All the dealer needs to be told is that there is a malfunction light, and then book it in for repair. If it's not covered by warranty they should tell you why not. No way should they be demand...

Re: Charging with Zappi & solar panels

Check out eco and eco+ settings. I think you have yours set on eco+, but eco may be better as it doesn't pause. Read all this on Zappi website.

Re: Paint coming off roof (only 1 year old)

Presumably you are talking about a Kia dealer (garage) and the paintwork warranty (insurance).
You need to get an independent diagnosis from a vehicle paintshop. Or, take a photo and send it to the local press to kick up a stink.

Re: Green wheel on dashboard display?

I guess you have an e-Niro. The wheel you see is either related to Lane Following Assist that is actuated when you set Smart Cruise Control OR it's the symbol on page 5-72. Good luck.

Re: Wing Mirror Reversing Adjustment

Move the mirrors switch to either left or right and leave it there. The mirrors will now tilt when reversing.

Re: Outside temperature reading

It's in the User Settings "Other features" on the small screen above the steering wheel. You will have to scroll the options using the controls on the steering wheel. Page 5-50 in the manual.

Re: Trickle charge 12 volt battery

The 12v battery is kept charged by the main HV battery if battery saver+ is enabled. So I can't see why you would want to bother, unless you rarely use the car and only charge it very infrequently. As to whether trickle charging would cause problems to the electronics, I don't know. Nor, I suspect, ...

Re: Regen default changed

Manual p6-16 says initial level 1 for Normal and Sport mode, level 2 for the two Eco modes. I don't drive an EV but hope it helps.

Re: Autohold dashboard fault

Extract from the manual : • If the AUTO HOLD indicator lights up yellow, the Auto Hold is not working properly. Take your vehicle to an authorized Kia deal- er and have the system checked. Not very helpful you might think, but I imagine any attempt to fix the braking system electronics would be beyo...

Re: Range display acting strangely

<t>You seem to have started with around 10 liters in your tank, less than quarter full, then you've added 6.5 litres (a round £tenner?), taking it just over a quarter full? I suspect you've confused the system. Fill it to the brim next time and let it sort itself out. If it doesn't, then it's a deal...
