  1. Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    My former 2015 Soul plus hit an elk in northern Arizona six weeks ago and was totalled, and we were able to find a 2014 Exclaim in even better condition with lower mileage with the insurance settlement. Had the Knock Sensor recall performed today and passed. I need to replace the serpentine...
  2. Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Hi everyone, really hoping I can get a little guidance because it feels like I'm driving a ticking time bomb right now. I purchased this car in January of 2020 and it has been nothing but issues for me ever since. This issue has occurred three times over the course of the last year, where I...
  3. Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Hello all. I just swapped both the rear calipers on my soul (2014, base, manual, 1.6), had a sticky piston on one side, and a slowly failing one on the other as well. I re-tensioned up the e brake cable (using this as a guide), and it does grab the rotor a bit, but not enough to hold my car in...
  4. Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Hi everyone, New here, but having an issue with my 2014 Kia Soul + These two lights came on a week or so ago, and have been on ever since. I have read that it could be a fuse, so I'm going to check all my fuses today when I get off work. I've also read that it can be a "burned-out" tail-light...

    Bought new in 2014. Pretty much trouble free, until.... I recently replace pads and rotors on all 4 wheels and I completely wore down my right rear pads in 3 weeks. I thought it might be a bad caliper so I replaced the right rear caliper last night and put new rear pads on both sides. Went for...

    I have a 2014 KIA SOUL PLUS that the blower motor had went out. The dealership wants way to much to replace it and I have looked on line to see how hard it would be to do it myself. h as anyone else replaced their blower motor doing it themselves? if so how hard was it to do?
  9. Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    I know this information has been answered somewhat. But I’m confused as to if Kia can actually program a remote to the car or not. Does it have the receiver? I was told it would be pricey, but that’s not my concern. My concern is does the car actually have the receiver to accept the programming...

    I can only find info for older models. And i also saw conflicting information about which mtf to put in because kia changed the recommended fluid? Can you change the fluid without lowering the car from jackstands? i only have those plastic ramps. Any information is appreciated.

    Hi there! I purchased a very nice silver 2014 model with dealer maintenance records, although the last owner stretched the oil changes out a bit. Not sure if he used a full synthetic or not. The car spent its nights in Kansas City (with this mileage, its days were on the road!), and I am...
  18. Aftermarket modifications (Gen 2)
    Hello all, I use my soul to camp in a lot on long trips and was thinking about removing the front passenger seat to make sleeping a bit easier. I use a platform I built and can lay flat, but could use more space. If the seat is removed the air bag light will come on, and it may disable them is...

    Hey everybody! This past summer I purchased a 2014 soul base with a 6 speed manual with just around 50k on it. It really was an emergency purchase since my previous car died (I was able to push that one to 210k!). I got my soul for an absolute steal at $8k, then $7,500 with the trade in on the...
