2003 Kia Sorento Description

I have a 2003 Kia Sorento that was converted over to electric drive. It was done in 2010. The car is in pretty good shape for its age. It has 100 3.2volt Lifepo4 CALB 60ah batteries. The batteries are not in the best shape. The car drives but could use some battery maintenance. The current capacity is about 30 -+ AH and results in about 30+ miles of range depending on how you drive. I got this vehicle with batteries at a low voltage and brought them back up and was able to resume charging and balancing.

Slow from 0 due to weight, tire size and rear end gears.

The instrumentation is a Garmin GPS to display vehicle speed, the original cluster is not there so I am unable to determine mileage but the title says 125k, I cant imagine its much more then that now. I purchased this car from Kansas and brought it to California. I have the pink slip and Bill of sale from the person I bought it off of. It can be driven the way it is or it can be stripped down for its electrical components to build another EV. It has an elithion BMS and RS232 connection for a laptop so you can monitor the cells during charge/discharge. It says 7 cells not reporting so when I charge it I have to hook the computer up and clear the code in order to enable charging. This is because there is a bad cell in the pack. It has a belt driven A/C but I'm not sure how to get it working or if it is even charged any more. I haven't had much time to mess with the car due to moving across country because of a family emergency. This is my reason for selling it. It has 110, 220, and J1772 charging capability. This vehicle is being sold AsIs so ask all the questions you want before bidding and I will do my best to answer them.
