  1. 2010 Cable wiring (backup camera and 4ga power cable)

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    Is one side a better choice than the other for routing cables? Driver's side seems like a good choice because the battery is on that side, but I'm wondering if one side of the floor channel is a better choice than the other (e.g., more space). Anyone familiar with these vehicles have an...

  4. Shift Cable

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I noticed moving my shifter (automatic) has become stiffer over time. As of recently, I can not shift it down to low (1). Upon inspection I noticed the mounting bolt (that has the square base) at the engine end (fits into the shift bracket slot) does not freely rotate as the the shift cable is...
  5. Parallel ground cable directly to motor

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    FLHamstrer has posted about adding a ground strap from battery to motor, parallel to the ground strap from battery to frame. This is a much more direct path than battery to frame, across frame to motor ground strap. When I first got the Soul, I measured resistance from battery negative post to...
  6. 2012 Kia Soul Negative terminal issue.

    New Member Introductions
    So our 2012 soul base model was having issues sometimes not starting. I found threads on here that the negative terminal to the shock tower needed cleaning. While removing I sheared off the existing bolt. Do I just get a new cable and 12mm nut and attach to another bolt thread on the shock...

  8. Kia Hood Cable

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    During a cold winter day I drove north to Vermont. My 2012 Soul started acting up quite a bit! RPMs wouldn't go over 2 or 3k. It wouldn't go over 35 mph and felt like if I went up hill it would just not have the power to do so. I pulled over and tried to pop the hood and the cable broke. I...

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    Do I need to buy the iPod (nano) cable from Kia or is it something I can get elsewhere? Like everything Apple the price seems a little excessive.

    and sorry if I missed the solution in another thread. I did read through several. I have the UVO and backup camera, with the touch screen head unit. I've been using my ipod touch with the white ipod usb, and a 5mm cable. It works great, and I use the steering wheel controls to go up and down...

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    I'm looking for the correct iPod cable to use with my 2012 Soul, but I'm a little confused! I thought I found the right one on Amazon (ASIN B005OJT2TC), but I saw in one of the reviews that the customer had a 2012 and the cable didn't work properly, and someone replied to their comment to let...
  19. iPod 5th Gen with P8620-00000 cable

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    I know there are a bunch of threads regarding using an iPod with the head unit, but I just went out and bought the Kia iPod cable, and I am still not able to use my iPod with the steering wheel controls, and on top of that, it just says Aux on the touchscreen display. From what I gathered here...
  20. OEM iPod Cable

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I apologize if this repeats another thread...I did do a search and looking through didn't see any similar issues. I just received the OEM cable (which plugs into both aux and usb) and when I plug in my iPod it stays on AUX on the UVO and doesn't seem to recognize my iPod (5th Gen 80gb)...
