  1. ICE & Communication (Gen 2)
    So I've been getting this prompt a few times a week for the past 2-3 weeks now. Prior to that, I've never seen it pop up in my 2 years of ownership. Has anyone else seen it? How do I make it stop? I've listened to Siruius XM for maybe a few times during their promotional free trial, but...
  2. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Alright, I have a 2011 Sport, just shy of 170K... have had very few troubles with the car. My ex-wife had a bad habit of "topping" it off, so I do have purge valve issues so I do not shut it off when I fill up. The issue I'm having and questioning, is no crank. Everything works but it won't...

    I love my 2017 Base Soul but the lack of oil pressure and voltage gauges bothers me. I would gladly trade the tachometer for either of them. A tachometer on a car with an automatic transmission seems pretty useless to me. I've found both gauges to be useful in the past. Idiot lights are a topic...

    Hello, First Post. We have a 2016 Kia Soul with the Manual Transmission and use it as our "TOAD" Vehicle. There is a Kia Technical Service Bulletin Number 018 (Rev 3, 01/14/2015) that provides the requirements for towing Kia vehicles with all four wheels on the ground. It is a very light...
  5. Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Hey all, haven't been around much to post but I've been creeping. As some of you may remember, I traded in my '16 Special Edition for an '18 Tech Turbo. 12,000km strong, I'm absolutely loving every bit of the new Turbo model. But I have an odd issue that we cant seem to track down and I'm...

    Does anyone else take time to wipe down their entire engine bay every oil change....or is it just me? 26k and still looks like day one! Something about taking pride in your ride. While I'm on the topic does everyone else hate the oil change setup in the gen 2s as much as I do? I end up stuffing...

    Hey everyone, been having issues trying to get cruise control activated on my 2013 base auto. I'll be driving on level ground keeping the speed steady, and with the cruise control master switch on, the toggle down to enable cruising doesn't work consistently. I have to try anywhere from 5-15...
  8. Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    As the title says.....................I bought my car, a 2016 Soul, in December ( I should tell you I live in the land of glass smooth roads and constant sunshine...Florida ) and am on my third windshield. The last time I could have caught the stone with my teeth it was moving so slowly. I was...

    HEY! I'm brand new; haven't even gotten the car tagged yet. Already planning and spending more money than I need to of course. Sometimes economy cars are the best for tinkering with. Is there a local meet and greet/cruise group? I've picked up a base model and the list of tiny things my...
  10. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I purchased my 2014 Soul base AT in August of 2014. In October while driving back to my home in Spring Hill Fl from the Orlando area the car lost all power and stalled. After waiting a half hour the car restarted and I was able to drive a few miles before it stalled again. After an hour or so...

    i have had my kia soul since june of 2011, 2 weeks before my daughter was born. it's been perfect and seems to (knock wood) remain in excellent shape. it perfect for height with babies and carseats yet small enough to fit in compact spaces. BUT i have a 2011 regular Kia Soul, it's now gone...
  12. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Maybe we're doing it wrong because I can't imagine why they would have left it this way but you know how when you hit lock twice on your remote in most cars it does a half honk or a chirp to indicate the alarm is set? Well why on the soul does it honk as loud as it can? It startles people, heck...
  13. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hello, I was wondering if anyone else had issues with the oil light not coming on?! I just got an oil change today and I had no idea that it was so low. Low as it if I drove it anymore my engine would have been wrecked. Why didn't the light come on? I find that weird. I know I shouldn't rely on...

    Folks, the horn of my Kia Soul 2010 is not working properly. Sometime it works, sometime it doesn't... This intermittent problem is getting me crazy... Does anyone know how to solve this? I'm totally open to replace the horn, the question is: will that solve this intermittent problem??? IF...
  15. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I have a 2012 Kia Soul (basic) with less the 6000 miles. I started having issues with acceleration/deacceleration (very sluggish) and the engine is very loud when in any gear and with or without the A/C on. I took it to my dealership and was told it was the fuel pump. After waiting a week for...

    So recently over the last few weeks, every once and awhile I'll have issues with my steering wheel audio controls. When I go to push the volume up button the volume goes down and when I push down it goes down as well. Then when I go to select the next button it switches the audio mode. Sometimes...
