    Cool Locked out?

    For my 2013 Soul, I had an emergency key made that I carried in my wallet. I even posted a picture of that key, at the time. I never needed it.

    But on the 2020, what good would a flat key do? There are no keyholes in any of the doors.

    So if the electronic door Lock/Unlock mechanism (remote) won't work, how can you even get into your car?

    Does anyone have an answer to that one? Conwel?

    Likely a hidden key hole in the end of the drivers door handle and you access it by removing a small cover using your key?? Probably in your manual.

    WTF???? It would've been easier and cheaper to just leave the damn key lock in place. Somebody's too smart by half.

    And whoever wrote that essay needs to look up "clockwise" and "counterclockwise." Just a suggestion.

    There should be a cap & gown ceremony once you get to the end of that manual!

    Only from the minds at Kia...
    Manual states: "Once the doors are unlocked they may be opened by pulling the door handle"
    Well...I don't know about you but I was just going to stand there waiting for them to open on there own by telekinesis.

    Looks like just another failed Kia commercial to me...

    Kia built an escape hatch into the floor similar to the one on the Fury tank.

    I wonder if the Uvo services would unlock you outside of the trial. This of course would be if your vehicle has that as an option. I'm guessing it's not in all Souls.
