New PHEV recall

I had my recall on the switch box done today but a new recall became due this very morning. It’s a software mod on the charger flap mechanism. Seems sometimes it won’t release. Satnav upgrade was done and paid for at the same time.

Re: Huawei p30 lite wireless charge from Kia Niro 4

Re: PHEV Charging

To those worried about the charge currant rather than charge time, I recommend changing the charge rate using the black square button on the back of the display unit.

I’m 6’3” with size 13 feet and my left foot parks neatly under the foot pedal. What’s the problem?

Re: PHEV Charging

Re: PHEV Scheduled Charging

Solved Given the opportunity to sit in a warm Niro while my wife shopped, rather than in the dead of night as I plugged the PHEV into its charger, I have found that if selecting “activate off peak time settings” then please remember to set some sensible on and off times rather than leave the default...
