Hybrid System Failure

On my way into work, my car slightly jerked, and 4 warning lights came on. Received a message check hybrid system. I head straight to dealer, and while waiting for them to open I turn my car off. When the dealership opens, I start my car, all I get is my dashboard. I have no engine. Still awaiting verdict from dealer. Anyone else have this happen?

Perhaps the HSG belt broke. Due for replacement at 60K. Dealer will tell you no doubt, could be a trillion things. Which warning lights went on?

I just had the same thing happen to my 2017 with 54k miles. Talking to my service advisor this morning I asked about the belt snapping and he said there wasn't one it's a chain and gears. Dealer did all the recalls and it did not fix it. They said they were instructed to trickle charge the battery for 4 hours. I suspect this is not going to fix it because they have now give me a rental. What did they find wrong with yours?

The HSG belt breaking is going to trigger alerts as the car will no longer be able to charge or start the engine. But no, it is not responsible for the valve timing.

I hope the mechanics know the Niro better than the service advisor. On page 8-21 it says the HSG (hybrid and starter & generator) belt every 30k mi. or 24 months. But that's for severe service and I thought it was 60k. mi. I just see on page 8-14 it says 60k. mi. for normal service.

Total system failure - I had a similar thing happen on my 2017 Niro. Literally, at a red light, the car totally stopped, several warning lights popped on, one which said hybrid system, and I couldn’t do anything from there. Engine wouldn’t turn on and all systems died. Towed to dealer two days ago and waiting to hear status. Not feeling very good about my Niro or Kia at this point.

That's disappointing. Was there any indication of a problem before this happened? Rough running or trouble lights on the dash?

Not one tiny sign that would have indicated anything wrong. We weren’t even in park - but stopped at a red light. Car only has 28k on it and has been extremely reliable until this.
