    Exclamation ECO Light Indicator?

    I noticed the other day that there's a indicator light on my dash that reads "ECO".

    It's never been on. I'm unsure of what its propose is. Anyone know?

    Does the Soul have an ECONOMY MODE?

    someone said in here you can actually turn it on. But that's all I know.

    I stopped fighting my inner demons. We're on the same side now.

    I have had 2 Souls (#1 was purchased May 09 but was totaled in an accident in Jan 10). The first one had the indicator light but it was non-functional.
    In #2 light does work. Using the trip button, after the second trip OD function it looks that you can turn the ECO indicator ON/OFF. I didnt have the function on Soul #1.
    Hope that helps!

    Like Sam Hein mentioned, the ECO light comes on when you're driving economically. Supposedly, that means when you're getting the most bang for the buck.

    For Canada at least, it can be turned off an on by the trip button. Tap the button until the console reads "Eco on". It should come up right after Trip B. Press and hold the trip button and it will eventually say "Eco off."

    I personally have not seen a significant difference in following the light though. Especially since in first gear, you pretty much have to crawl for it to stay on!

    I think this was added after the interior update that brought all the fake chrome into the Soul and the trippy new style speaker LEDs that light up AROUND the grill instead of inside.

    Soul!, Wankers....Me....and the other early adopters have what some have called the "KDM" interior. My dealer is now calling the older ones that because it matches EXACTLY the demo cars that were Korean Domestic Market cars....just for demo.

    The newer interiors and apparently that ECO light appear to have shown up after a couple customer feedback cycles.
