    Hi Guys, I was wondering if anyone know how to get into the engineering mode on the stock Kia Soul head unit, hoping to be able to add some custom apps and such. I've looked online and the instructions/suggestions for similar models don't seem to work.

    Greetings, I made my first post in the introduction forum. I have been reading many threads and learning valuable information. I added my phone via bluetooth. It isn't a real problem, but how can I delete the previous owners phones? Thank you

    Hello everyone, I'm Sergio and live in PA. I bought my Soul EV in 2016 in New Jersey. I love the car but have had multiple issues with the radio. Had it replaced twice. Now the USB port doesn't want to work and they want to replace it a third time. Anyone have issues like this.

    Really enjoying my third soul. Started with a 2013, 2016, and now the 2020. Looking at the window stickers the 2020 was only $1,000 more than my 2016. Still getting used to all of the new safety features. Digging the heads up display and wireless charging shelf. Took the only Turbo the...

    We bought a 2016 Soul EX in Polar as a third vehicle now that the kids have their driving licenses. Other cars are a 2011 Kia Sorento EX AWD and a 2010 Hyundai Santa Fe GLS AWD. I love the Soul. It doesnt drive like a small car and the interior is well appointed. It might become my daily...

    Brake pads are running down at 30k already on my wifes 2016. I made the mistake of replacing mine on the 2011 with Duralast Pads from AutoZone. They squeel like crazy its highly annoying. Looked up dealership pads and they are 92.00 for the front which seems a bit excessive. Saw another...

    Is it possible to change the background on the uVO Head Unit on these? I tried searching but all I found were desktop wallpapers. It has an SD Card in it but I assumed that was just for maps on the NAVI

    Hello, I’m new and joined looking for information on putting a full size spare in a 2016. Wondering if anyone modified/cut the styrofoam cargo tray aka (Cargo Box - Kia (85725-B2100EQ)) up. I see the dealership sells them for around $150 and $70 for shipping. $220 seems like a lot to chop up...

    I have found that the license plate lamps do not light. The bulbs are confirmed as working and all other lamps works. Does anyone have wiring diagrams and locations of connectors related to the license plate lamps they can provide. Thank you in advance for your assistance.

    Hello all, Bought my Soul new at the end of '16 and have been driving it hard ever since. So far it keeps taking my 'abuse' and I'm loving the sporty ride. The soul replaced an '06 Vue 5spd that was T-boned at 297,000 miles. I tend to drive them until they are dropped out from under me. I've...

    I recently took my 2016 Kia Soul in for its routine oil change. While there, the service manager said that there was a problem with the front Brake piston that caused the brake pads to wear unevenly. Although, I had no brake problems, I agreed to replace the front Brake pads. 43000K miles and...
