12v

  1. Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    I just had an aftermarket speaker system installed in my 2017 soul + and am very happy with the results but have had a Minor electrical issue I'm hoping to fix myself. The 12v power socket on the driver's side is not working. The right side works so I suspect the installer must have unplugged...

    I have a 2019 base soul. Today I noticed that the two 12v outlets are marked with two different voltages outputs. The one on the left is marked 12v 120W. The one on the rights says 12v 180W. Why would I need 180 watts vs 120 watts and visa versa... Meaning what does that voltages difference...

    I have a 2017 Soul Base with no power seats yet, I have a 30a fuse in the bottom right, 3rd from the bottom position marked P/Seat Pass. I dont have power seats so what is this used for? The P/Seat Drv doesnt have a fuse or contacts at all. This 30 amp circuit for the P/Seat Pass is a...

    Hey everyone, I've had a dashcam on my car (Mini 0805) for quite some time now. Love it, but when it comes to running the wire it's a bit tricky. I can get it into the headliner no problem, but when it has to go down the A pillar with the hard plastic airbag cover the wire runs along the...

    May 2017, Added a loud compact air horn to help with situations that demand a little more than factory horn can handle. The 7 yrs I had my 2010 I went thru 3 air horns. Tapped the relay trigger wires into back of factory horn connection which is buried under the drivers headlamp, which must be...

    I have a dashcam / rearview mirror, and I am wondering if there's somewhere I can tap into an ignition-switched 12v line in the ceiling area? In my previous car I just let the wire dangle and plugged into the accessory outlet, and while I could do that in the Soul I really don't like the...

    Is there an easy way to make these constantly "HOT" ?
  12. How To / DIY (Gen 1)
    Is there a way to get my 12v power outlet to be constant hot even when the key is off without making it a major project? I would like to be able to leave my ipod plugged in to either the usb port or the 12v plug in to charge... The fact that the usb port doesnt charge even with the key on is...

    I just received my Samsung GalaxyS Navigation Vehicle Mount for my Soul. I suction cupped it to the windshield up high to the right of the mirror. (I will take pics tonight when I get home and can get to my camera) My question is, how big of a deal is it to get that dome light/sunroof...

    Hi all, Took a long drive today, 5+ hours, and for the first time I plugged something into the 12v charger (a Garmin GPS). When plugged in, I can hear an audible low 'buzz', although with the road noise, I can't tell if it is coming from the speakers or somewhere else. Does anyone else have...

    Home depot sells the 12v jack I saw this a while ago and always wanted to invest in one. The only time I've ever used OEM jacks were on cold wet nights, or extremely hot humid days. Not to mention how cheap and tiny OEM jacks are. I know if I ever get a flat I'll know I'll regret buying one...

  20. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Has anyone else noticed that all three of the 12V Ports all turn off with ignition? Has anyone found a way to keep at least one powered on at all times? I was hoping that at least one of the outlets would stay on at all times. I have a small 12V cooler I take with me when I travel and usually...
