KIA Niro: Sub Battery Pack Assembly

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 shut off the high voltage before doing any work related with the high voltage system(Refer to "High Voltage Shut-off Procedure"). Failure to follow the safety instructions may result in serious electrical injuries.
  1. Turn ignition switch OFF and disconnect the negative (-) battery terminal.
  2. Shut off the high voltage circuit.
