Plug-In Hybrid System Failure Engine Running in Emergency Mode
I have 2019 Plug-In Hybrid Kia Niro EX with 4,500 miles and is 3 months old. The first symptoms were 4 warning lights including the check engine light flashing, the hybrid system failure, a flashing EV light and a flashing small car light near the EV light.
Starting April 17 now in it's 2 week mark still at the dealer with one brief return to me there originally was a loose wiring harness connection that hadn't been clicked in properly. I had the car for less than 20 minutes and had to return it to the dealer. But now, they think the electric fuel pump needs to be replaced. The same lights re-appeared. The worse of it the dealer is being told the part won't be shipped until May 20. And frankly I don't know if they'll have actually fixed the vehicle.
I've contacted the Kia Consumer Assistance to ask for expediting help as this is not acceptable in my opinion. I'm awaiting a response.
