  1. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Howdy all. New to the forums here. Just bought a 2013 Kia Soul! YEAH! Unfortunately, I bought one of those blasted Febreze air scent things for the car. The ones that fit on the air vents. Well, it leaked. I got back in my car a day later and the goo that came out of the Febreze device melted...
  2. Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Does anyone hear any fluid movement behind their dash when driving? I'm hearing a noise that appears to be coming from directly behind the stereo/climate controls on occasion. It sounds like a small pool of liquid moving around. For example, if I come to an abrupt stop, I can hear it slosh just...
  3. Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Hi - there is another post about general noises but this one is specific to the front dash - on both sides, but more on driver side for me - "around" where the upright speaker is or in front of the speaker, under the glass. It is a tick tick tick or a static rubbing (I suppose) noise that...
  4. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    We need some help with our 2011 Soul +. The dashboard has decided to freak out in the most uncommon way possible, and just after 60K miles. Initial symptoms were that the displays were stuck at 0 (tach, speed, fuel, temp), All warning lights were on, brake, TPMS, traction, traction OFF. NO CEL...
  5. Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    My 2014 AT BASE Soul has the dashboard light brightness control on the left side of the dash and uses a +_ button to dim or brighten the dash, however, that does not work unless your headlights are on. Is there any way to dim the dash with headlights off?

    Hi, I decided to change my stereo from the stock and had someone I know install it because he offered to do it saying he knows how. The outcome resulted in him damaging my dashboard around the center speaker on my 2011. I'm wondering if and where is the best place I can get it repaired? I know...

    Right smack in the middle of my dashboard, in front of the "ghost speaker" circle thingy, there is a small clearish plastic half-circle embedded into my dashboard. It's very close to the glass. Is that a wiper sensor for cars with that feature? Or an alarm hub for cars that come with one?

    I'm planning to start painting some of the trim in my interior and I'm wondering how best to remove the air vents on the dash near either side door. It looks like I need to just carefully pop them out, but I really don't want to break anything. Anyone have any experience doing this that...

    Found this guy while out Christmas shopping. Used 'sugru' to attach it to a floppy disk and cable and made a dashboard buddy for my soul. Matches my car's colors perfect and was my favorite comic hero, too.
  11. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I like the two-tone interior rather than all black. The website says that the PLUS (Titanium) is available with "Gray Two-Tone Honeycomb Woven Cloth" interior. But I can't find any photos that show whether this would also give me some gray on the dashboard and interior door panels. At the...

    I dropped my 2012 soul off last night for a front end alignment and new tires (18") Went to pick it up this afternoon and the check engine light was on, water light was on, the gas light blinking (had 1/2 tank at drop off), odometer reads dashes, speedometer not working at all. Pulled the fuse...

  14. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    New cluster of instruments was required and now fitted under warranty, no reason given for the failure. Only problem is that they cannot retrieve the previous mileage to confirm it in my service book, so I'm starting from zero miles. Other problem of the chrome peeling off the two front door...

    How do you clean the dashboard, it's constantly getting dusty and dull thank you
  16. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I'm trying to keep the interior looking nice for as long as possible. I bought a sun reflector and use it every day (well worth the $10). As far as cleaning/wiping down the dashboard, what is the best thing to use?
  17. Soul Accessories (Gen 1)
    I am currently looking at kits that give the interior (specifically the dashboard area, radio, air vents, door arm rests, steering wheel, etc.) a wood grain look. I have seen them from $140-$300, and am ready to pull the trigger on a 25 piece kit from REMIN for $175. It seems to be a quality...
  18. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hi! I recently purchased my 2013 Soul in 10/2012 and just in the last week noticed a rather odd noise. A creaking sound from the dashboard. I am concerned as this is a brand new vehicle and at the moment only 2800 miles. I took it back to the dealer and they don't have any idea what the...

  20. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I'm not sure if this is considered a 'problem' or not, but one of the first issues I came across when I was putting all my junk back in the new Soul was that there just isn't a GREAT solution for mounting a GPS on the dash. I have a TomTom and I was using one of those little plastic disks...
