  1. Driver Side Tail Light Fuse

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Does anyone know which fuse is for the driver side tail light? Tried looking at the manual but the label descriptions are confusing and didn't see anything about tail lights. If anyone could point me in the right direction, it would be greatly appreciated!

    New Member Introductions
    Hello, My name is Jessica, and I have a Kia Soul. I've owned it for about a year, and to be honest I'm not really into it. I'm trying to figure out why that is. I will include pictures if posting pictures on your first message is allowed by the forum.
  3. Grinding Noise Coming from Driver Side Front Wheel During Hard Right turn.

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Hi folks! I did a quick search and could not find anything and I am hoping to pick y'all's brains. I took the wife's 2012 Kia Soul in to get the throw out bearing replaced. It is currently at 90k miles. As you may or may not know, this is a heck of job to do so I took it to a mechanic that...

  5. What is the box under the carpet, under the driver's seat?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Hey all, I just got a salvaged Soul that was stolen by a crack head (literally found a crack pipe in the trunk compartment when I was cleaning it out) and amongst all the trash there was some kind of blue sound mixer or controller that was ripped open, ... Maybe about the size of an average...
  6. Upgrade 2011 Kia Soul + (plus) Driver's Seat?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    My wife states our 2011 Kia Soul + (plus) seats hurt her back, in particular the driver's seat. She loves her 2016 Fiat 500 seating position. Do I have any options in upgrading to a better Gen1 or higher Kia Soul seat, or maybe other car makes/models altogether that might be more comfortable for...
  7. 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...
  8. I broke my driver's door !

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    This is embarrassing .... I locked my self out of my 2011 Soul base .... I panicked and took a screwdriver and hammer to the driver's pull door handle and lock (later I learned how to pry the door window frame and use a stiff wire to unlatch, later I learned that breaking the window was far...

  11. Newbie, driver's side mirror

    New Member Introductions
    Hello, Fodderdeck here. Thanks for the add. I'm replacing a busted driver's side mirror on my 20214 Soul. (Heated, non-power folding, turn signal) When it was vandalized I found the shattered mirror and the assy twisted on the car, backwards. Surprizingly enough, the assy looked fine, so I...
  12. Key fob only opens driver side door

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hi all, I have a Kia Soul 2012 Exclaim that has been problem free except for a recent issue where the key fob will never unlock the passenger + rear + hatch doors with the key fob. The driver side door unlocks 100% of the time. I've tried replacing the fob battery (almost 5 times across both...
  13. Driver headrest adjustment

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    My driver's headrest seems to be tilted too far forward. We have adjusted the whole thing all the way back, but the cushion is still too far forward. I just had to remove it altogether. I would like to put it back in, if it can be adjusted. Any tips??

  16. Front driver side tire "flapping"

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Ever since I had two new tires put on the day after Thanksgiving (2016), I've been hearing flapping sounds coming from the front driver side tire. I don't hear it all the time.. only when it's raining and going at least 40+. I then had new front brake pads put on less than a month later. If I...
  17. 2014 base seat pockets

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    I have wondered since I bought my Soul as to why the front passenger seat has a seat pocket for the rear passenger, but the driver seat does not? Does anyone have an idea? Seems odd and I have to think there is some sort of reason. Thanks! Josh
  18. Lock / unlock using the key in the driver door (not using remote)

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    2106 Soul ex - I can unlock all doors using the inside switch on the driver door. Using the key to lock the car, only the driver door locks. Some day I may think I've locked it, but i't's wide open. Why did Kia determine this to be a good use? To unlock, using the key, I can unlock only the...

I think the Soul would be great for him but as he is is older but would prefer a car that has Front collision prevention with Automatic Emergency Braking which unfortunately isn't yet offered on...

    I have a 2014 fully loaded Soul, 32k miles, the seats have heat and air in them. Last week I noticed little metal balls on the seat, some I could brush off but most were stuck in the little holes on the seat. I took it in to the dealership and the guy says its not coming from the seat, maybe a...
