    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Hi I have a 2016 Kia Soul base model 1.6 L, when you turn the control on the manual air conditioning system to defrost is the air conditioner supposed to come on automatically? The manual says it should come on automatically, but if it doesn't, turn it on manually. Is it supposed to come on...

    ICE & Communication (Gen 2)
    Let me just preface this post/thread that this isn't really a problem - more so an oddity/inconsistency.

  4. AC heater controls

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hello! Brand new here - first question. The controls for my AC blower stopped working. It stopped once and came back for 6 months. Saturday it was in and out. I tapped the side and it started once. I assume it's not the motor because it's in and out. Is it basic to replace? I always YouTube...

No lights at all on the panel , can't switch the front defrost on, though I think thats the mode it's stuck in. No temp control so it blows hot air. I made...

    How To / DIY (Gen 1)
    I recently installed a new Kenwood DDX9702S head unit into my 2014 Soul+, and when I did so, I lost the steering wheel controls. I picked up an Axxess ASWC-1 unit to add them back in, and it works for the most part. If I let it auto-detect the car and head unit, it nails every button. However, I...

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    Saw some ancient threads on this, but they just trailed off with no solutions so I thought I'd re-open the discussion. I have a 2011 ! Soul. The previous owner was apparently some sort of technophobe and got the standard stereo in it. My phone pairs and plays music over bluetooth just fine. I...

  19. steering wheel controls.

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    Saw this today. I always thought a new head unit would mean losing the steering wheel controls, turns out I was wrong. Upon further research I realize that you can get universal connectors to enable the head unit to be controlled from the steering wheel. This link (if it works) shows a Soul with...
