Check Hybrid System. Turn off Engine MESSAGE?!?!?!?!
I've had my Niro for about 6 mo. now and love it... Just drove today all the way from Atlanta to Cincinnati and just commented to my husband what a champ it is. And then, after dinner, going to where we're staying, on comes the "Check Hybrid System. Turn off Engine" light, flashing, with an alarm (a sweet little chime, but an alarm nonetheless). What the...? I'm 500 miles from home....!?
I've tried googling for info about how serious this warning is. Basically it just says, "something is wrong with the hybrid system...could be anything... get it checked out." My main question...could it be related to the ridiculously cold temps outside? (it's 16 degrees here and dropping...high tomorrow is supposed to be 12 and low of 1.)
Any advice? I'm gonna call the Kia dealer in the morning, but wondering if anyone has experience with this. THanks.
