I am wondering if the EV motor failures are a batch issue

could those who have had a Hybrid EV motor failure post the last 6 digits of there VIN but star out the last 2 digits for privacy

EG. if the last 6 of your VIN were 012345 then post 0123**

hopefully we can see if these are random or a batch close together

those are about 3000 apart so currently unlikely to be a batch fault, but lets see if we get more?

I have the same issue with a Hyundai Ioniq EV, so not the hybrid but the full eletric one. I checked my VIN and it's 0079**. Also it's a Dutch car.

The error I get is a triangle with !EV and the text: Check the electric system wagon. Is this the same error as yours?

It's almost a week further and the dealer hasn't told me much. First they thought it was a very expensive part of the car, they couldn't give me a name, and they told me they had to contact the importer to ask them more information about this problem. But they need more time to inspect the car. They have given me a Nissan Note now for the time being, so I'm not really happy with the service so far.

I forgot to ask the others about this issue, but when I was driving about 20 m/h the car was just using the brakes without notice and when the car didn't drive anymore it puts itselfs in P. I was just driving in D so this was very, very strange and a bit scary. I had this three times in 5 minuts so after that I drove the car to the dealer. The mechanic made a drive with it and also had this issue. Does anyone else had this problem?

Can't say I've ever had that happen or seen any reports of it on the forum . When you say it goes into P , does the gear lever move to P ? . Sounds more like an ECU problem to me or maybe low voltage supply to the ECU

Maybe I posted it in the wrong Thread, but I have a Ioniq EV, not a hybrid. I have the gear lever with only buttons, so no real stick or something. When I was driving in D and he uses the brakes without notice he went into N and when the car was standing still it switched to P and gave me that error. You can imagine this is really scary because (ofcourse) there were another cars behind me but thank god they were paying attention to the road. I have driven a lot EV/Hybrid cars but I never had this in my life, so I'm real curious if anyone else had this exact issue with his Ioniq.

You can imagine it doesn't feel good at all when the mechanics from the dealer can't tell your exactly what's wrong with it, but I'm glad the car did the same thing in his test drive.

Wow, Murphy's law clearly applies to the Ioniq segment. **** happens all the time. Now we seem to have troubles with an EV shifting itsself to P ???. Dont know exactly but EV seem to shift gears electronically?
I wonder when Hyundai triggers a callback for certain Ioniq Hybrid and EV series. I trust before myself encountering the famous hybrid system error ?(pfffheeuuuw.....sweat)

Now its mentoined several times on this forum that Toyota Prius and Honda Civic have pathed the way for the superior Ioniq. It was a jump in the dark when I bought my first Civic Hybrid but never experienced this kind of electronic humbug. In fact I never had any trouble with it driving 60.000km/yr. If Hyundai uses the former generation hybrid path they seem already far off course.

Confusion cleared up then ;) , still sounds like it may be an ECU problem though

Well I am going to call the dealer this week, so I will give you an update about it when I will know something new. Here are the pictures with the errors after the car used the brakes and turned into P:





I didn't even notice it when I was watching it the first time, but I also see the light with the car and the key, isn't that strange? The car is in Dutch by the way, so the error is saying something like: Check electric system of the car.

I see on the right charging gauge a number of red bars on the lower side. In the hybrid this indicates that the ECM has shortage in power, likely caused by a low 12v auxilliary battery. You however have an EV. Dont know if they have the ECM fed by a 12V battery too. If so then recharging the 12V battery could help. Jan Treur is an EV specialist. What do you think Jan?

Indeed it is the same for the EV; a good 12V battery is basic, otherwise many things will not work as they should. When the car is on, its 12V battery is automatically charged from the traction battery. If that (re)charging mechanism does not function, the 12V battery can get in problems. But I would expect that the condition of the 12V battery is one of the first things a technician will check when you bring the car.

The red bars show when the traction battery becomes low and has to be charged.

Right Jan, I also suspect a problem in the BMS causing the insufficient charging of the 12V battery. This is not normal behavior and must be checked. But its not so expensive as a contaminated EV traction engine like we saw on some hybrids. Trust it will be resolved under factory guarantee, so dont you worry about a thing.

The dealer just called me and they told me they've fixed the problem. As chunga68 was saying, it was the ECU that caused these problems, so they replaced it. Look forward to drive it again this afternoon!
