Kia Soul EV: High Voltage Battery Control System / Main Relay Description and Operation

Kia Soul EV (PS EV) 2015-2020 Service Manual / EV Battery System / High Voltage Battery Control System / Main Relay Description and Operation

Description
Main Relay is installed in the Power Relay Assembly (PRA) and it controls the high voltage line.
It connects the power between the high voltage battery pack and the high voltage joint box by the BMS ECU control signal.
But when the battery cell is swollen by overcharging, main relay and pre charge relay (PRA) are not operated by RAD.
The RAD is installed on each battery module and will not operate when the battery is normal.
