I've not seen that message as I have only owned my PHEV for a few months now, but please keep us up to date on what the dealer tells you.
In all fairness to the dealer, it appears to be two separate (and possibly unrelated) problems that just happen to be happening at the same time. The water pump they replaced had surfaced as a blown fuse 5 months ago, and the BMS error appears to be intermitant and self clearing, but we do want to make sure it's addressed before the warranty expires....That sucks that you have to take it back to the dealer immediately after picking it up.
Seems that some dealers just can't handle working on hybrids.
Breach of warranty or not, it seems to me you might be Lemon Law territory as well. Depends on the state you are in but worth getting acquainted with your laws on the matter anyway.It is clear to me that this dealer does not want to work on the PHEV, so I drove it across town to a different dealer. I'm hoping for better service from them. I am also dissapointed in Kia America, as they never responded to my initial complaint submitted via the web message system, and were not helpful in dealing with the dealer. At this point we are venturing into breach of warranty terrotiroy, as it was at the dealer for the same issue four different times.
My "percent uptime" for this vehicle is 80% (in the shop 20% of the days I've owned it), which should explain my frustration. At this point my wife has also lost faith in the car after it has stranded us three times (brake issue, electric water pump failure, battery at zero issue....). [Althugh the 3rd stranding halfway resolved itself over time...]
Nope, still in the rental, which is better than nothing, but we would prefer to drive an electric or PHEV while waiting, especially with the current gas prices....Neat, so some Elantras can have the windshield fall out. 😁
Is your car back, yet?
I have the same problem with the blinking green car it all happen after the recall update they did now I have to pay for diagnostic at the dealershipDrove it to the dealer the next day, the HEV warning light had gone out, but the check engine light was still on. The "Hybrid" guy wasn't in that day, so they asked me to bring it back the next day. The next day the check engine light had cleared itself, but they pulled the code from the history and cleared the codes, and told me to bring it back if they re-appeared.
Day after that the car threw a different code and went into "blinking green car/arrow" emergency driving mode. The code now was: "U1116 Lost communication with EWP". This is a code we had seen before (5 months ago), and the dealer said a fuse had blown, they replaced the fuse and cleared the code, but now it's back. Not sure if it's related to the previous code that cleared itself or not (electric water pump and BMS are somewhat different systems), but the car is at the dealer now.
