KIA Niro: Pre-Charge Relay

Specification

Description

Description

The Power Relay Assembly (PRA) consists of the positive and negative main relays, pre-charge relay, pre-charge resistor and battery current sensor. It is located inside the battery pack assembly and controls the high voltage power circuit between the high voltage battery and inverter by the control signal of BMS ECU.

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.
  1. Turn ignition switch OFF and disconnect the negative (-) battery cable.
  2. Shut off the high voltage circuit.

    (Refer to Hybrid Control System - "High Voltage Shut-off Procedures")

  3. Remove the power relay assembly.

    (Refer to High Voltage Battery System - "Power Relay Assembly")

  4. Remove the pre-charge relay (A).

High voltage pre charge relay switch resistance

Use multi tester (relay OFF)

  1. Shut off the high voltage.

    (Refer to "High Voltage Shut-off Procedures")

  2. Remove the high voltage battery rear cover.

    (Refer to "High Voltage Battery System - "Case")

  3. Remove the inlet cooling duct.

    (Refer to Hybrid Control System - "Cooling Duct")

  4. Measure the resistance between the high voltage power terminal (+) and the inverter power terminal (+).

Specification : ¥Ω (20ºC (68ºF))

KDS - relay ON

KDS - relay ON

  1. Connect the KDS to the Data Link Connector (DLC).
  2. Turn the ignition switch ON.
  3. Activate the pre-charge relay by using "Actuation Test" on the KDS as shown in the illustration below.

Warning

When the relay is ON, there is a relay operation sound.

High Voltage Per-Charge Relay Coil Resistance

  1. Shut off the high voltage.

    (Refer to "High Voltage Shut-off Procedures")

  2. Remove the power relay assembly.

    (High Battery System - "Power Relay Assembly")

  3. Check for continuity between the terminals using an ohmmeter.

Specification : 50 ~110 Ω (20ºC(68ºF))
