KIA Niro: High Voltage Shut-off Procedures

Warning

  • Be sure to read and follow the "General Safety Information and Caution" before doing any work related with the high voltage system. Failure to follow the safety instructions may result in serious electrical injuries.
  • Be sure to read and follow the "High Voltage Shut-off Procedures" before doing any work related with the high voltage system.

    Failure to follow the safety instructions may result in serious electrical injuries.

Warning

High voltage components: High Voltage Battery Pack Assembly, Power Relay Assembly (PRA), BMS ECU, Hybrid Power Control Unit (HPCU), Hybrid Drive Motor, HSG, Electric A/C Compressor, Low DC/DC Converter (LDC), On-Board Charger (OBC), Power Cable, Electric Compressor etc.

  1. Turn the ignition switch OFF.
  2. Remove the auxiliary 12V battery cover (A).

  1. Disconnect the auxiliary 12V battery negative (-) terminal.

  1. Remove the luggage board (A).

  1. Remove the safety plug cover (A) after loosening the mounting bolts.

  1. Unfasten the hook (A) in the direction of arrow.

  1. Unfasten the lever (A) in the direction of arrow.

  1. Remove the safety plug (A).

  1. Wait at least 5 minutes or until the capacitor in the high voltage system is fully discharged.
  2. Measure the voltage between the inverter terminals to check that the capacitor in the inverter is discharged completely.

(1) Remove air cleaner assembly and air duct.

(Refer to Engine Mechanical System - "Air Cleaner")

(2) Disconnect the inverter power cable (A).

Warning

Warning

Disconnect the inverter power cable as shown below. (3) Measure the voltage between the inverter (+) terminal and the inverter

(3) Measure the voltage between the inverter (+) terminal and the inverter (-) terminal.

Less than 30V : High voltage circuit properly shut

More than 30V : Fault on high voltage circuit

Warning

Warning

If voltage over 30V is measured, reconfirm that the safety plug has been removed. If voltage over 30V is measured even though the safety plug has been removed, there can be serious problem with the high voltage circuit. In this case, check DTC and do not touch the high voltage system circuits.

     Electrical System

    Be sure to disconnect the battery cable from the negative (-) terminal of the battery. Never pull on the wires when disconnecting connectors. Locking connectors will click when the connector is secure. Handle sensors and relays carefully.

     Servicing The Electrical System

    Prior to servicing the electrical system, be sure to turn off the ignition switch and disconnect the battery ground cable. Warning In the course of MFI or ELC system diagnosis, when the battery cable is removed, any diagnostic trouble
