  1. 2012 Soul Base AUX port issues

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I've seen many posts about problems with the AUX port for the stereo system, but have not been able to come up with a solid answer. So, I have a 2012 Soul Base with the 1.6L 6-speed manual. I purchased the car not knowing the AUX wasn't operating like it should. Once I found out it wasn't...
  2. Static Buzz while playing Music from iphone through Aux port

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    First time poster on this website WHOOOP! Anyway, I have a 2011 Soul and have been pleasantly surprised with the lack of maintenance it has needed so far. It has 83,000 miles and is running well. However, I am having a problem with my stereo system when I play music from iPhone and connect it...
  3. Weird Audio Problem with Aux Chord in Soul

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    I am one of those idiots who didn't realize that my Soul didn't have a CD player until I got it home. It's a 2014. I just started listening to audio books and whether I use my portable CD player or put them on my Ipod, they sound bad in a weird sense. It's like small bits of the audio are...
  4. AUX Replacement

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Does anyone know how to replace it in a 2010 Soul?
  5. 2010 Kia Soul RADIO PROBLEM

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I have a 2010 Kia Soul - recently the radio makes a popping sound and you cannot hear the radio. Nothing works, ex: CD player or iPOD connections or radio. From the posts I read, I think it is an amp problem. Does this sound right? I don't want to waste my money on a new radio if I only need...
  6. Using AUX with phone, get wining noise based on speed

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I bought my used 2011 base model Soul about a year and a half ago. Ive never been an AUX user but just started messing with it. When I connect my Galaxy s3, I get a loud whining noise when I play something. To make it worse, it gets louder when Im driving faster. Ive tried this with multiple...
  7. Aux Audio Problems

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I was playing my ipod from the aux plug and everything froze one me. Now I have a red light that looks like two arrows chasing each other in a circle, the "mode" button on the steering wheel will not work at all and I can no longer play my ipod or iphone from the car speakers anymore. Does...
  8. Aux connevtor default volume

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    I am working on a project for in my soul to integrate some communications radios with the factory stereo. I have noticed that the factory stereo automatically switches to the Aux connector when it detects something is plugged in there (I'll have the communications radio simulate this), but the...
  9. Vocal MP3 through AUX is clipping words

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    I was trying to play an audio book via a walkman in the AUX port and if there is a slight pause in speech, the beginning of the next word is clipped. So, if someone were saying "Hello Harry", it comes out "ello arry". I assume this is some kind of system noise reduction, as the same setup works...
  10. Vehicle off & Aux. power off, no way to see the time?

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I have noticed in the 2011 and up Souls that the "check CD" button on the right hand side of the stereo has changed to a "clock" button. I assume Kia realized this mistake, because I am simply not able to find anywhere in my car to see the time when the vehicle is off. Am I missing something...
  11. Radio, Aux connected problem

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    I just bought my 2010 soul a few days ago. It seems like when i drive for any amount of time with the radio on it switches to the Aux channel and saying that it is connected, even though nothing is plugged in. I thought at first it had something to do with bluetooth, I turned that off both in...

    I would like to plug in the kids dvd player into the aux to get the sound from the car speakers but there is the high pitch wine sound from the speakers when engine is running . The dvd player is powered from the power port and I thinks thats why I get the wine. It sounds great as long as the...
  14. MP3 and Aux

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    I just bought an MP3 player (Sony Walkman) for my husband. I tried to plug it in the Aux outlet to play on the radio. We own a 2010 Soul - base model. The music plays but it is very slow and distorted. The cable is new. I wonder if it is defective or if there is a problem with the outlet and/or...
  15. Low volume from AUX input solution

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    Hello all :) Long story short my last vehicle had an after market Sony stereo which had the option of being able to control the input gain on the aux input so when I hooked up my iPhone I got the desired amount of volume. With my Kia Soul I was finding that when attaching my iPhone via the...
  16. Slightly lower volume output from iPhone (aux input)

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    I use an iPhone 4 to play all my music from. I've noticed that the volume output is noticeably lower than say music from the radio or satellite. Anyone else notice this? The after-market deck in my last vehicle had the option of increasing the gain on the aux input but this feature is missing...
