  1. New member: 2014 Base Add ons, Keyless entry and new Head Unit

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    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...

    ICE & Communication (Gen 2)
    Is it possible to add the lighted speakers aftermarket? Just bought a used 2016 Kia Soul+ that doesn't have the upgraded soundsystem. Any way to add the lighted speakers? If so, how much am I looking at installed? Thanks!
  3. 2014 - 2016 add heated / signal mirrors

    How To / DIY (Gen 2)
    Great news everyone! for $150 you can add defrost / signal repeater mirrors to your Base Soul, I paid $150 for the pair and swapping only took about 20 minutes. Of course they came with black caps, which blends in decently & didn't bug me enough to track down or pay for silver caps. Below are...

(Same question for...
  5. 2014 Soul radio confusion - want to add a backup camera

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Hi - we became new members of the Kia Soul family earlier this week when we purchased a 2014 Kia Soul +. It was a great deal but unfortunately, it did not come with the one option that we really wanted - a backup camera. (The car will mainly be driven by our teenage daughter who does not have...
  6. 12v Constant Power Source at Fuse Box w/ Add a Tap for Cigarette Outlets

    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...
  7. Rear power outlet add on

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Does anyone know if a rear power outlet can be added on a 2015 Soul? We test drove a '17 and it had one, so we thought they all did. We bought a '15 and it has what looks like a place for one (if you cut out where it should be), but how can you tell if the wiring is there?
  8. Thanks for the add.

  9. 2014 Base - add cargo cover?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Has anyone created a cargo cover for a base model? I'm trying to get some ideas to make one, since it appears there are physical difference in the back that prevent one from just buying one and using it. I'd love to get some ideas, and pictures from anyone who's done it.

  11. Anyone add the factory spoiler to a 2nd generation themselves?

    Soul Accessories (Gen 2)
    I really want to add the spoiler to my 2014. Would be willing to pay the $270 for the "official" KIA version from my local dealer (unless the spoilers sold for $100 on ebay actually ARE the OEM in disguise). But wondering if I can save some cash by installing it myself. All I know is the hatch...

  15. soul plus add on seat heater problem

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    We had seat heaters added to our Soul (we live in Wisconsin after all). We paid the dealer and they took the car to an aftermarket shop. The installation looks good and works fine. But the fasten seat belt light flashes unless the passenger seat belt is fastened. The aftermarket shop says...
  16. 2012 Led Ring Front Speakers - Add a new color?

    How To / DIY (Gen 1)
    Has anyone successfully hacked the led light speaker rings to make a new color other than the standard 8(ish) color options? I want to make a brown option to match my Redrock edition. I assume that voltage is the key, but I'm no electrical engineer. Any thoughts?

  19. Can you manually add phone contacts ?

    ICE & Communication (Gen 2)
    Can you manually add some phone contacts to Kia ? The reason I ask is because doing a search on this forum I found an old post that seemed to indicate you could. Here is a quote from that post - "I did just bite the bullet and add some contacts manually by using the bluetooth button and the...
