  1. Recommendations for a portable jump starter to keep in the glove compartment

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    This is actually for my wife's 2003 VW Bettle but it applies to the Soul as well since they have the same size motors. Does any one have any brands/sizes that they have used and can recommend? She wants the small lithium battery type since her VW has a battery drain that no one has been able to...
  2. Phone mount for the compartment above the headunit?

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    I recall, years ago, someone either posted a photo of or had a phone mount that utilized that little compartment above the headunit. As in, the mount connected into/onto it. Does anyone remember what i'm talking about? I'm searching the forums, and amazon but can't find anything. Any help...
  3. Detailing interior and engine compartment

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    My 2013 base Soul is now a year old and the engine compartment is a little dusty and I was wanting to clean the plastick parts in the interior of my car. Any suggestions? Can I use water to rinse the engine off without hurting anything? What can I use on the interior to make the dash and the...

  5. Tailgate Open Warning Light and Luggage Compartment Light don't wortk

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Have a 2011 4u Retro. Luggage compartment light bulb filament is o.k. Fuse for Tailgate Open Warning Light changed to no avail. Are the two linked? Is there something else to check or is it dealer time. I hate the thought of spending $100.00 per hour for troubleshooting when these are...
  6. DIY Refrigerated Beverage Compartment

    Soul Accessories (Gen 1)
    Okay, it's a little cheesy, but I always thought the refrigerated glove box feature was neat. I love me some cold soda on my trips. But, I got an absolutely bog standard Base Model, so no luck on that option. I decided to do it myself! I added a mini-fridge over the hump, behind the center...
  7. Navigation in open compartment above radio in 2013 Base Model

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 1)
    I am new, and was not able to find a thread on this. I have a 2013 base model Soul, and above the radio there is a "sunglasses" compartment. On the 2013 model, there is no door, it is just an opening. I would like to have a third party GPS system installed in that spot and was wondering if...
  8. For sale - Armrest/storage compartment

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    So for some reason I don't have privileges to post in the 'for sale' thread - perhaps one of the admins can move this to where it belongs. I turned in my base 2013 today but kept (because I bought it aftermarket) the armrest/center console. I purchased it for $130 something about ten months...
  9. Cargo compartment cover

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I am searching for a hard, cargo cover for my 2013 Soul+ that conceals the contents of the cargo compartment from above. (I'm not talking about the cover that lays upon the cargo cubby to form the "floor" of the compartment , which I already have.) Looking at the panels on each side of the...
  10. Hard Cover for Luggage Compartment?

    Soul Accessories (Gen 1)
    I could swear I saw a hard cover for the luggage compartment when checking out a + model many moons ago. Was I dreaming?:think All I can find in KIA catalogues is a POS stretch cloth that retails for over $88. :laughonfloor
  11. Can you add a door to the sunglass compartment above the stereo on a 2012 base Soul?

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    Hey all. I think the title says it all. I searched but couldn't find any sort of answer for this. I have a 2012 base soul which has an empty slot for the sunglass compartment. Is it possible to swap it out for the version with a door? I haven't seen it sold anywhere but I thought someone here...
  12. Glove compartment light on?

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Noticed my glove compartment light on while driving.... it was closed yet could see the floor lit up Anyone else have this? I thought something was stuck, moved things around inside but it was still on when closed. When I stopped to get gas and re-started my soul, light was out. Anyone else...
  13. Newbie question about the spare tire compartment

    Soul Accessories (Gen 1)
    My Exclaim came with the foam cargo tray that I didn't really want. When I removed it, I was surprised to see the spare just sitting there. Is it standard not to have anything covering the tire when you get the tray? What's on the Souls that don't have the foam tray option?
  14. Is it possible to get a lock on the glove compartment?

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 1)
    Does anybody know if its possible to get a lock for the glove comparment? Anytime i go to places where i'm parking outside and leaving my car for hours at a time, I like to lock my glove compartment. I always thought that every new car at least should come with a glove compartment lock. Though i...
  15. Storing Change In The Sunglasses Compartment?

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Has anyone come up with a good way to store loose change in the sunglasses compartment? I've been looking for a coin tray of some kind that will fit, but so far I've struck out...any thoughts/ideas? Thanks!;)
  16. Dash compartment is holding my sunglasses hostage!

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    The compartment is not opening, it feels almost gummy when I try to slide the latch. I've had my Soul+ since Saturday (3days!). Today was the first cold day of the season at 32deg F, so I'm thinking moisture may have built up down there or something. I tried putting on the defroster + heater...
  17. Scratches on the glove compartment

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Ok, so I've had my Soul now for 3 weeks and yesterday I managed to scratch the glove compartment with my watch. Now, it's not a bit scratch, and my gf keeps trying to tell me that it's not really noticible, but I sure notice it. I was wondering if there's anything that I can do to fix it or...
