  1. 2012 Kia Soul + - cruise control set button unreliable

    How To / DIY (Gen 1)
    I've noticed in the last two years that the "set -" function on my cruise control has been flaky. Meaning that it takes multiple down pushes to get the CC to set. Lately pushing on the Set button (to decrease speed) discontinues the speed that was set. Button needs to be replaced? How hard...

    I have seen the videos, and install seems easy enough. But where do I get an OEM kit for my Soul. All the kits require a heated wheel.....really, what is that? Remember I have a base manual which I love. The only kit I can seem to find is a cheesy after market stick looking devise for around 3...

  8. Where is the on/off control for the heated REAR seats?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    I have a new 2018 Soul SX Turbo Tech, and the website features list show that the Tech package has heated seats both front and back. The on/off switches for the front driver and passengers seats are obvious. But, where are the on/off switches for the REAR heated seats?? The user manual is o no...

  10. Electronic Boost Control Solenoid

    Tork Motorsports
    Got my solenoid from Tork today (fast shipping btw) and got it installed. Managed to get the old solenoid off intact, though for the time it took I think I would have rather clipped the line as in the install video XD Took it for a test drive and honestly it made a lot more of an impact on my...

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    So, I know others on here have had the same issue, but in all the posts I've read thus far, I haven't been able to find anyone that actually had a solution. I have a 2013 Soul Exclaim, and none of the climate control options are working. It's been going out over several months, but if I...

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Hello. I have a 2015 Kia soul and when u turn the fan control to 1,2, or 3 the fan feels really week. only when it's at 4 is it good enough. If I put it on 1 it's so weak it's pathetic. I feel as though the speeds of the fan should be 4 as 3, and so on. what's annoying is this is a new car...

    Hey everyone, been having issues trying to get cruise control activated on my 2013 base auto. I'll be driving on level ground keeping the speed steady, and with the cruise control master switch on, the toggle down to enable cruising doesn't work consistently. I have to try anywhere from 5-15...

  15. Spotify display and wheel control from iPhone 7?

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    We have a 2013 2u with the non-UVO stereo unit. Bluetooth works solid, but I'd like to have Spotify track information displayed and controlled through the wheel. Plugging it in through the USB port doesn't work, nor does Bluetooth. I've tried searching here and on the web, but can't come up with...

  17. IPM box, what all does it control??

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Having an issue at the dealer. I recently paid over $600 to repair non working rear blinkers. Part of the repair included replacing this "IPM box". Does anyone know what all it controls? I am very skeptical about this part of the repair. Seems like this box would control a lot more than the...
  18. control arm / cv shafts

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I was under the car to take a look at the CV boots because we are having what definitely sounds to me like a bad CV joint noise (speed related wa-wa-wa / not quite ticking which changes in intensity - louder and more pronounced when cruising, less but still there when accelerating, less but...

    Hi all - looking to add an amp and sub box from my previous car to my base headunit in the Soul (I know, I should really replace the headunit, but it'll have to do for now).
