Re: Hyundai Kona : Official Review

After driving Kona for 6000 kms, I am facing a peculiar issue, whenever I connect for charging, it sometimes stops automatically after few minutes. Any help or experience from fellow ev / Kona owners.

Sounds like BMS issue (Battery Management Software).
Also, what are the outside temperatures? I see you are from Ahmedabad? Isn't it very VERY hot there? If so, it could be due to temperatures.

Why don't you show it to the workshop & get it checked?

Re: Hyundai Kona : Official Review

Thanks for the reply. Vehicle is in the Hyundai workshop at present. There was a delay cut due to over voltage and they rewrote the error with scan. However , the problem persists and though this city has temp more than 40 sometimes, but such problems have not been reported in other vehicle. Workshop is troubleshooting with connectors, issues at charging socket but still no leads. Any other reasons, please let me know.

Sometimes if u connect the charger for ac charging with the lower flap in often the charging may stop.

When I had my vehicle, I always charged with the lower flap in place when charging at home. I never had this issue.

Re: Hyundai Kona : Official Review

I don’t think lower flap being open or close could be an issues as it is only required while DC charging. Workshop is saying that there was a loose connection in the dashboard which may be the fuses or else I am yet to understand. Thanks for comments. Hope our sharing of problems will make the EV fraternity more aware of issues , if at all it comes up.

Re: Hyundai Kona : Official Review

Got this charging break issue sorted out. It was just a loose wire connection which was fixed by Hyundai. No issues now and using it trouble free now. I appreciate Hyundai service response at Ahmedabad and their efforts. Happy motoring to all! Kona is awesome for me.
