This new it should not have any problems, but get some age on it and it will be, if this is going to be a common thing then check with the dealer for a battery tender system for the vehicle, as this is a hybrid it won't be cheap.

No, because there is a button in lower left of dash labeled "12 Volt Batt Reset". It holds reserve power to start the car if the Hybrid battery has discharged for any reason.

Thanks. Can't find this button. My Niro is a left hand drive. This might make a difference??

The 12 V Batt Reset button is right next to the gas filler door button.

Sorry -I have looked everywhere for the button (12 V battery reset). It is not beside the gas filler button on my model -would it be somewhere else>?

I don't know where else it would be. Best thing to do is call the nearest Kia Dealer, or the Kia help-line, and ask.

I did not left my niro unused for more that 10 days. Still, the 12V battery stopped working and we have to take the car to the dealer. They raplaced the 12V battery and after 4 days, same problem. One week later, the mechanic is still running tests to determine were the problem is. If you encounter same problem I will appreciate suggestions.
