KIA Niro: Sub High Voltage Battery - Removal

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 terminal.
  2. Shut off the high voltage circuit.

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

  3. Remove the sub high voltage battery rear cover (A) after loosening the mounting bolts.
