  1. Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Hi All - I’m about to install a ROAV dash cam in my 2018 Soul Turbo. I’m not hardwiring it; just powering it with the included car charger. Before I start, just curious to know others’ experiences with running/hiding the cable in the A pillar and side of the the car via panels/weather...

    This is my RetroCarGuy530, LLC video showing the installation of a VIOFO A129 Duo 2-channel dash camera into my wife's 2017 Kia Soul +. I used the VIOFO 3-wire power adapter which supports parking mode operations.

    I started probing wires under the dash and I got lucky and found the reverse light wire in a plug on the far left side under the dash. It's a green wire in a plug containing many green wires. I will attach a photo for reference. It's the second wire from the left on top. I pulled it out a...

    My 2017 didn't come with center dash speaker, so ive purchased the cover (part #84770B2100EQ) and a local audio shop told me to get the KIA speaker too, as it should be "plug-in-play" -- they'll charge me hour labor to install. only part # i can find for the actual speaker is 96350B2000 but seem...
  5. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I recently brought my 2013 Kia Soul base model to the dealer with a rod knock. They diagnosed the rod knock quite quickly, then informed me a week and a half later that during a test drive the mechanic claims the dashboard flicked out. They have absolutely no evidence that this happened, but...

    Anyone ever purchase and install a dash kit to jazz up the interior?......just purchased my Kia soul and would love to have more color inside but thinkin i will wait a bit till i get bored with it. Not sure how they would hold up in the long run tho as they are just stick on? Thanks

    It looks like there are two double-DIN dash kit options on the market for the Gen 2 Soul, from Metra and Scosche, and possibly a third that several companies whitelabel. The few pictures I've seen of an installed Metra kit on the Soul look, to be honest, pretty bad, with visible gaps from the...
  8. Vendor Deals
    We've found another solid deal, but time is super limited on this one! The Vantrue N2 Pro Dash Cam is packed with features including 1080P recording quality, front and cabin-facing cameras, infared nightvision, motion-activated parking mode, and more. Regularly priced at $199.99, it's marked...
  9. Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    My Soul Base has developed a rattle sound originating from within the dashboard. The rattle sound is located at the dashboard center area just below the top surface. It sounds like it is coming from behind the center ventilation outlets. I've searched the forum and some others have experienced...
  10. Soul Accessories (Gen 2)
    I bought a dash camera and the hard wire kit recommended for it. The camera comes with a cig outlet plug and cord and works fine with that. But, I want to keep my cig outlet free, thus the hardwire kit. It is a cord with a black box inline to convert from 12 volts to 5 volts DC for the usb...
  11. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    My daughter has a 2010 soul she was able to pull down on the fan speed switch and get the fan to come on so I don't think it's the Resistor or fan motor. It has now stopped and since apparently you can't just replace the one switch from what I've found you have to replace the whole panel with...

    I'll be lazy and ask here instead of pouring over the boring manuals..... In sport mode the torque bar graph reads in Newton meters and the boost graph reads in kPa. Is there a setting to change that to good 'ole imperial units........Foot Pounds and PSI ?? I do hope so......:grey:

    Anybody have look tracking down vibrating plastic parts in the dash? Any usual suspects?
  14. Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Looking for recommendations on decent dash cams, first cam was a cheapy which I tossed after a short time since it was all around crappy. I then got a Viofo A119s it lasted about 10 months then froze, a firmware update did not fix the problem. I recently splurged on a Garmin 55 not cheap at $269...
  15. How To / DIY (Gen 2)
    I just bought a new to me 2015 base. The car is in very good condition with low miles. The previous owner drilled 2 small holes just above the AC vents in the middle of the dash to mount something probably a GPS or cell phone holder. I'm using the vehicle as a small work van in the construction...

    Is is possible to program the gear indicator to show the gear the transmission is in rather than when to shift up?
  17. Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    After months of research, I replaced my 4Sight TODC2 with a Street Guardian SG9663DC. Here are some pictures of the front and rear cameras: The front camera is semi-permanent. I plan to bundle the wires when the hardwire cable is available. They had some problems with the test batch, so...

    Just got this 2013 ! Really like it and still learning it, As my subject line asks should the trip button light up, seems it should all the others do but it doesnt, I hope not, as it looks like a bear to change and im way too OCD not to fix it if it should light up, Thanks Bats

    2014 Kia Soul. Dash lights work when head lights are off, but they go completely off when head lights are turned on. Not just dimmed but OFF. Any clues? Thanks in advance.

    Passenger side. Creaks with any movement of the car. Have pressed and fiddled here & there and haven’t found it. Any known places to look for? TIA
