Have you noticed your Kia Soul EV behaving differently? Perhaps you've noted weaker braking, or your vehicle doesn't feel like it has the same "get up and go" that it used to. If that's the case, Firestone technicians can conduct a no-charge* electric/hybrid vehicle check to get a deeper understanding. Perhaps there is trouble inside your Soul EV's high voltage cooling system -- if the high voltage battery is running hot, it will limit the battery’s performance. Or, perhaps there are Diagnostic Trouble Codes stored in one of your Soul EV's electric modules? Your nearby Firestone Complete Auto Care store is ready to offer conventional and low voltage services for all electric car makes and models, including your 2015 Kia Soul EV.
Select Firestone locations also offer high voltage/advanced services for electric cars like Kia Soul EVs. A high voltage service is any service that involves removing the Kia's high voltage, service/safety disconnect plug/switch, servicing high voltage electric machines/motors, the high voltage battery pack, high voltage A/C compressor, any high voltage cables, etc. Call your local store before making an appointment to check if high voltage services are offered.
Some of these high voltage electric vehicle services might include:
Electric vehicle diagnostic: Once we identify the symptoms, a diagnostic is the next step we take when you bring your 2015 Kia Soul EV in to identify the root cause. With those insights, a professional technician can further diagnose electric vehicle problems you're having and determine what tests (if any) are needed. We never perform repairs without your approval.
High voltage battery cooling inspection: Your technician will examine the Soul EV's high voltage battery filter, if applicable, and clean the battery's ducts. (This applies to air-cooled high voltage batteries. Liquid-cooled or refrigerant-cooled high voltage batteries are inspected differently.)
High voltage cable inspection: Your technician will visually inspect the outer cable jackets and connectors on your 2015 Kia Soul EV and test to ensure high voltage is NOT transferring to the chassis. They'll let you know if the cable needs replacement due to wear and tear.
Isolation test: This test involves using a unique tool to see if any high voltage parts are "leaking" electric energy to the Soul EV's chassis.
Remove and replace high voltage battery: Is your 2015 Kia Soul EV high voltage battery weak and failing? Sometimes electric vehicle batteries can wear out sooner than you expect in hotter climates or if you use Level 3 fast-charging stations often, since these chargers can heat the battery more. Let us install a new electric vehicle high voltage battery.
Health check for the power electronic systems: We'll review the regenerative braking, power inverter, and/or electric drive machine(s)/motor(s) in your Kia Soul EV.
These are only a few of the special electric car services that could be available at your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care. Call and ask!
