  1. Soul General Discussion (Gen 3)
    Just bought a 2020 Soul and need to disable the seat belt warning chime. The light isn't an issue but the loud chime is and is optionally disabled on a y other vehicle make. Before getting sermons on this, I am disabled and it is difficult buckling a seat belt when driving in my 10 mph speed...

    Shopping for a Soul +, 2015 model. One of the available options is Idle Stop and Go. From Kia's website: I test drove a Soul that had it. As advertised, when you stop at a light the engine completely shuts down and when you release the brake it starts up again immediately. I do a lot of...

    I'm sure some people will have a fit over this but please start your own thread of how I'm gonna die horribly and baby kittens are being drowned because I made this post! With that being said under the driver seat is a group of plugs the one you're looking for is yellow 4 wire plug with 2...

    That's basically my question, when we shut off the Soul and remove the ignition key, all doors unlock. We prefer that it not do that, is there a way to disable that feature? Thanks in advance.

    My last car had a key fob with very recessed buttons. On the Soul with keyless entry I continually hit the bottom button when it is in my pants pocket as soon as I lean against something or put something on my lap while sitting. It is super annoying and I see zero value in having a button that...

    I have a 2016 SOUL SX LUX Canadian model with factory DRLs. KIA uses the high beam with reduced voltage for the DRL, I hate the sickly yellow light the reduced voltage produces. I want to add Phillips daylight 8 DRL and I would like to disable the factory DRL there is no fuse to pull, so if any...

    I can't think of a single instance where I will ever need to use this button. All it serves is to startle me when I accidentally bump it. Is there anyway to disarm this feature?

    Is there any way to disable the Bluetooth and all of the other wireless features in car?

    I searched the forum first and found one old thread on it. Unless something has changed I guess the answer is still "no." I had this kick in on me today leaving a parking lot. First...
  10. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I don't know if it's just my car but I find it way too easy to knock the stick into manual mode. Not only that but my dog can easily push into manual mode as well which is an issue obviously. I never had this issue with my Mazda as it took more force which protected it from accidental...
  11. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hello everybody! This is my first post. I just want to start off saying that I love my Soul so far, it is the best car I have ever owned. It is the first manual transmission I have ever owned too which is awesome. My aunt left it to me in her will. She was an amazing woman and as horrible a way...
  12. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I've seen in previous years methods to disable the gear shift indicator, but I can't find anything in the 2014 owner's manual. Does anybody know if this can be done, and if so, how? Thanks.
  13. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I know about the little button on the dash that turns it off temporarily, but I want to permanently disable the ISG feature. I was told at the time of purchase that it was possible, but when I called the service department they said they had no idea how to do it. Any suggestions would be...

    Has anyone figured out how to disable TPMS? I thought about pulling the fuse, but it looks like it is connected to other features that I don't want to lose. I have a set of 18" coming Monday to replace the stock 15" and I am worried that the TPMS light will bother me. I just couldn't see...

    Do we need to unplug the antenna to stop having the 3 SAT presets show up when changing modes on the stereo?
