2020 Kia Cadenza V6-3.3L KNALC4J10L5236624
What repair are you unable to perform?
Variant Coding of the SCC.
What information are you having trouble obtaining?
Technically no issues with finding information, only lacking capability.
What steps have you taken to obtain the information you need?
Subscribed to Kia Service Information, and the R2R J2534 Diagnostic Tool. The option is there to read and then change Variant Coding, but doesn't seem to work properly. The dropdown is available to Enable or Disable a parameter, but changing the selection does not change anything in the Setting Value.
(Optional) Any other comments or concerns?
If there are issues with allowing anyone to subscribe to J2534 Diagnostic Tool and then change Variant Coding I would think this is where a VSP should be allowed to use the VSP subscription to allow us to do so.
Matt, Thank you, There are some issues with some vehicles in the J2534 package. I will provide this one to KIA. We have another sent to Hyundai for a similar issue. More details when I get a follow up.
One idea is for manufacturers to have a list, hopefully not very long, of any known issues or bugs. So, in my case, if it would have alerted me to issues with Variant Coding, that would have saved me a fair bit of time. Just a thought. Thanks!!!
Matt, KIA responded that they have questions and believe they can assist you. Can you please contact me at … or reply to this message so that I can share their information. We will post a digest of the solution on this SIR after it is resolved.
Happy to help. The vehicle is gone now but, hopefully, I can answer any questions they may have. Thanks!!!!!
Thank you. If anyone else has this type of experience please post it as an SIR and if it happens between 5/17 and 5/27 send a note to our support team. …. I will be at industry events during this time and want to be sure that we can connect you while the vehicle is in hand. Support will find me and I will contact Hyundai or KIA whichever vehicle you have. thank you.
