Re: Hyundai will recall Kona EV models over faulty battery cells

I had the update done last Friday morning and then went to charge the car at 350kW charger with Car Scanner Pro plugged in to monitor things. So: 1) Charged to 85% SoC Display, 83% SoC BMS. There was no pause at 80% as advertised. I noted the cell voltage deviation went to 0.02V at about the 79% mar...

Re: Hyundai will recall Kona EV models over faulty battery cells

I just looked at speakev and the way I read it, the update will shut the kona down if the high voltage battery is too far out of balance in the cells. Below is a pasted page from the speakev site. Not clear if this happenned immediately after the update or at some point later. I was told by the Hyu...

Re: Hyundai will recall Kona EV models over faulty battery cells

I've Also received my notice. Clearly, Hyundai are, quite rightly, playing it safe, but there must be a better solution than a software change ( 100+ more lines of code just can't be wrong :lol: ) when they imply that there's a hardware issue. Has Hyundai really identified the actual cause of those ...

Re: New Kona Owner: home charging advice sought

Hi everybody, I am new to this forum. I bought a brand new Kona and I have also solar panels, so I thought that is a good idea to buy a Zappi charger. I read in this post that you can get away with smaller chargers, but I wanted to be ready for another, bigger EV down the track. Anyway, my question...

I'm running them at 37psi (cold). The car indicates 41psi once they warm up.

I note that a new version of the Autolink app was released in the last couple of days (for iOS). v1.2.3. So, a couple of questions...
1) Did anyone notice if was there a new Android one as well?
2) Did the folk who had problems have the recent software update (to the car, not the app) installed?

Re: Kona Software Update

I found this link about the update.

https://www.speakev.com/threads/dc-char ... te.150933/

I'll have to test it out at the next fast charge.

Looks like the Winter Mode was removed because we didn't get a battery heater - something I didn't realise when buying the car.

Still, overall it's a very useful program. Side note: If you found routing being weird, try the same route at http://www.openstreetmap.org with the "Car (OSRM)" setting.

Re: 2020 Ioniq

A Better Route Planner is a bit clumsy; seems to want to back track unless I'm doing something wrong? Yes, ABRP does do strange things. The back tracking occurs when you override charge levels and it thinks that won't be enough to make the next waypoint, based on your required arrival charge. One I...

Thanks for the replies. Like you reecho, I'm under the impression that they went for the Primacy 4. I decided to try them because a rubber band with a vaseline coating would have been better in the wet. So far: 1) The grip is way better in both wet and dry 2) The road noise is noticeably reduced.
