  2. 2017 Soul Heater/Fan concerns...

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Hello, It seems that when I turn my fan speed to 3 on my Soul, the temp. gauge starts to drop and so does the heat to the interior of the car. It did this last winter also. Is this problem related to the firm ware update? Thanks

  5. Using ECO Mode Concerns

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
