  1. Front passenger dome light does not turn on when door opens

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    So this is a very weird one. I have a Kia Soul 2013 with 2 front dome lights, one on the driver side and one on the passenger side. I have the door button pressed. When I open the driver side door, the front driver dome light and the rear dome light turn on but not the front passenger dome...

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Well, Back in November, I had my Sway bar links, Passenger side Control arm and ball joint, and all the pads and rotors done on my car. The Brakes have had to be REDID, and now the Control Arm and Ball joint had to be redone as well. Lesson Learned, NEVER let a used car lot do the work on...

  5. Door edge protection

    Soul Accessories (Gen 3)
    My last car had door edges that were all torn up by family members opening doors into walls. On this car I wanted to avoid that, but places were asking 20-50 bucks a door to add the clean 3m vinyl. So, I thought I'd try my hand at installing it and bought a roll of 3m door edge guard film...

  7. 2011 Soul map lights - don't turn on when opening door

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I have searched all over for a resolution on this: When I open the door, my map lights do not come on. The map lights will turn on when you press them (either driver or passenger) but won't come on when opening a door. The "door" button doesn't make a difference, whether it's pushed in "on"...
  8. Anyone replaced a whole rear door before? Any tips?

    How To / DIY (Gen 1)
    When I bought my 2012 Soul +, it came with a strange large (and ugly) dent on the drivers side passenger door. Since then, there have been 2 times hit-and-run varmints that have targeted that exact same door and created 2 smaller dents and scratches. So after 2 1/2 years of casually looking for...
  9. Door Edge Guard Removal?

    How To / DIY (Gen 2)
    My white EX with door edge guards have dark grime down the edges that I've been unable to get clean. Thinking about removing the edges entirely (most cars don't have them anyway) by heating with hair dryer to soften sticky so it can be pulled off. Anyone know of better/easier way to do it...
  10. auto door locks

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    The base model does not have interaction with touchscreen to disable speed activated door locks. I find them annoying. I took it to the dealer ask if they could plug into their diagnostics to disable and the answer was negative. Anyone know different? Other than that, I am extremely pleased...

    New Member Introductions
    Hello everyone and thank you for having me in your group. I am currently facing a severe door problem with my 2010 KIA SOUL as the door doesn't open from outside nor from inside. I do not know if the problem is on both sides as from inside we have locked the specific button for the children...
  12. Knocking on Heavens Door...

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Well...maybe tapping and not knocking would be more appropriate. I have noticed that valve tapping continues to come & go on our 2012 soul. Some days it's hardly noticeable and others it's more apparent. I came across a T.S.B. regarding lifters and oil holes drilled in them? Consulted Kia...
  13. HomeLink or Garage Door Opener

    ICE & Communication (Gen 2)
    So we got our 2016 Kia Soul yesterday (Wifeys Car). Her 2011 had rear view mirror controls for HomeLink (Garage Door Opener), the mirror on this one looks very basic, did they put the controls somewhere else? The thing has every option on it that I can tell I would find it crazy strange that...

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 2)
    Just a little more pizzazz for Sassy, the Weasel Wagon! Simply popped off the backing plate to the door opener. Spray painted with Rustoleum Sunrise Red. Several slow layers. Let dry. Replaced. Voila! I like it! Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

    ICE & Communication (Gen 2)
    Hi all, I'm trying to remove my door panel carrier to put sound-deadening material throughout the door. I;m being held back by what looks to be metal round rivets or something. Any idea how I can get this panel carrier off? Thanks
  16. Key unlocks every door except front driver's side door

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    2011 Kia Soul Hi, let me try and give all the details of what's going on. My key fob (sometimes) only unlocks 3 doors on my Soul. That would be all of them except the front driver's side door. This happens whether using the key fob remotely or the key in the door. I usually go into the...
  17. Door handle pocket

    Soul Accessories (Gen 1)
    Hi. I'm trying to find a simple way to use the space in the front door handles. I'd like to be able to use it for storing small items. This is the only ones I can find, but they're way too expensive. http://sharkracing.com/2010-2013-soul-door-pocket-set/
  18. 2012 Plus Door Lock Issues

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Can't see a similar problem after searching, so posting here. Yesterday, my door lock functionality started acting funny. I can unlock my driver side door with my key fob but double tapping the button no longer unlocks the other doors. When I attempt to use the unlock button in the car, this...

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hey all, I'm back with another round of Mystery Soul Theater. 2011 Kia Soul !, and out of the blue two days ago the door locks started behaving completely differently. Original behavior: (On keyfob or at driver's side door) Hit button once, driver's door unlocks. Hit twice, and all doors...
  20. Automatic Door Lock Short Circuit

    New Member Introductions
    My key fob stopped locking and unlocking doors on my 2013 Soul. When I popped in a new fuse in the appropriate place, it blew, and I was told I had a short. Anyone else ran into something like this? I'm told the repair may take two hours or eight, depending on how quickly they find the short...
