  1. Kia Carnival & Sedona 2006+
    I would like to replace my Kia Sedona 2006 cranking battery with an AGM battery. My current alternator outputs 13.5 volts while driving around or idling. Based on my research, AGM needs to be charged preferably at 14.6v - 14.8v. On YouTube, some people have replaced a charge 7.5 amp fuse with a...
  2. 5G 2022+ Sportage
    We took delivery of our 2023 PHEV Sportage a week ago and have a Type 2 EVSE (from ChargePoint) on order -- but it's back ordered and might be another few weeks. The battery was "empty" when we picked up the car, so we used the trickle charger the first day to bring it up to 100%. Since then...

    I was having issues with my battery, while looking online I saw that disconnecting your negative battery cable while the car is on will test your alternator. I was telling a friend who is a mechanic and they tried it themselves and proceeded to disconnect the positive cable. After disconnecting...

    Hi everyone, I have a 2011 Forte Koup 2.4 and I am having a rough idle/stalling problem after I reconnect my battery from doing unrelated work.

    Was replacing my battery when I lost the nut/bolt for the negative terminal. It fell down into the engine some place and now I can’t find it. The cable is pretty tight on the battery post so I am able to start it and drive, but I’d like to know if anyone knows where I can find a replacement...
  7. Kia Forte/Cerato (TD) and Koup Discussion Forum
    Driving along and car just dies. Check Engine light came on right before. Thought maybe low oil makes engine shut down. Got towed home, went to start and dash lit up. Turns over really slowly. Car has been stuck in mud twice in the past few weeks. Could that be an issue? Mud in where it...

    2014 KIA OPTIMA 4cyl 2.4L I stopped driving my car and when i went back to it the battery was dead. I believe the battery was dying before this but because I used to be a daily driver it seemed to be holding on until I let it sit for months. In the car now is a AGM battery with a 760CCA...

    Put 500 miles on the car from new, now its at the dealership for 3 weeks awaiting a new battery 🙃. The perils of buying a new model car lol. Apparently it has a specialty battery and has to be shipped from Korea. Took them a week to look at the vehicle because they're out 3 techs from COVID...

    Since I am always looking to learn about the latest cars, technology and experiences, this site is full of those things and has my interest. I started with my new Kia Sorento Dec 29 2017. I wanted to purchase, but was talked into leasing for some great incentives. I saved like 3k with the...
  15. Kia Soul Forum
    I replaced the battery in my 2015 Soul+ 3 years ago with a 26RH size, specifically this one. I’m past the replacement window but when I poke around Pep Boys now, it shows that one may not fit my vehicle and the ones recommended are group size 124R or H6. Obviously I don’t take this 1 site as...
