  3. 2012 Kia Soul + - cruise control set button unreliable

    How To / DIY (Gen 1)

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    Just got my 2012 Soul, base model. I paired my phone up just fine with the Bluetooth through the radio. Seemed pretty straightforward.

  14. 12 V Power Outlet (Cigg Lighter) doesnt work 2012 model.

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    USB port still works fine. Fuse is good. Is any of the fuses under the hood connected to that? Will that outlet just pull out to change or does the dash have to come apart? Thanks.
