  1. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hi all, I'm hoping someone may be able to shed some light on some recurring issues my 2011 kia soul is having. I've had the car since 2013 and I think I'm the second owner. There's just over 100K miles on it. The current issue is that the AC isn't coming on. Sometimes it will and sometimes...

    Car: 2012 Kia Soul + When the key is in the first turned position only the radio turns on but the locks, lights, etc don't work. Even the warning sound that the key is in the ignition with the door open doesn't beep. When key is turned all the way forward (before engine start) they all turn...

    I have a 2011 Kia Soul ! which I bought used two years ago. It has about 96k miles on it, and ever since I’ve had it, if I stop too quickly, sometimes the car will stall. But lately, my radio has been dipping out (even when bluetooth audio is connected), shutting off, and restarting. Today, my...
  4. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    So I am experiencing some serious electrical issues with my 2012 Soul + now and I'm a little lost on what happened here. I'm starting to think the cabin fuse/junction box is at fault, but I'd like to get some opinions. I'm the second owner and have had the car since 61K miles and I have kept up...

    Out of nowhere my horn, speedometer, tachometer and A/C stopped working. My outdoor temp display is only showing two horizontal lines. I checked the obvious fuses and they were all good. I would appreciate any help! Thank you!

    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...
  9. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Got the car back from the dealer, and was doing errand and made several stops. After the car was sitting for roughly 6 hours, I tried to start it and it had the difficulty starting that was in an earlier post (although very minor), plus-- the tach wasn't working, and the "low sound" happened...

I've noticed lately that the rear window switch on driver side doesn't put the window back up!! Also, cigarette lighter on passenger side isn't working. Are these issues common amongst...
  11. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    God, I HATE electrical problems!! Of course it is my own stupid self I have to blame. I know better than to mess with electrical stuff without removing the negative battery cable, but I was hurrying and let myself do something I knew I shouldn't. I was in the process of changing all the interior...

    First time posting...daughter with 2010 Kia Soul, when brake pedal is depressed the radio light dims and the right rear tail light also dims. I replaced the common 10 amp fuse. Will be looking at the tail light bulb - anyone having the same issue? If not the bulb, am I looking at some type of...
  14. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I just replaced the bulbs in my left side marker and left tail light. Turning the lights on, both bulbs again failed to light. Switching them out with known good bulbs didn't fix it. There doesn't seem to be anything blowing the bulbs, just no power to those two sockets for some reason. I...

    Purchased my 2012 brand new in June 2012. In Late June 2013, the radio frozen up, still playing sound but couldn't adjust the volume, turn it off, change the station, switch modes etc. I immediately drove to the dealer and when I got there and they saw how it wasn't changing, I took the keys out...

    My Soul+ has been having an intermittent issue when starting recently, with no particular pattern that I can discern to date. Sometimes when I start it, nothing electrical is working, including power locks and windows, heating/cooling system, and interior/exterior lights. If I turn the car off...
