  1. Soul General Discussion (Gen 3)
    Hello all, I'm looking at purchasing a '20 Soul LX Manual. Does anyone know if the procedure for adding cruise and keyless entry will be similar to the Gen 2 models? I did a bit of digging, but didn't find anything related to the topic quite yet. Apologies if I missed it. Thanks, and looking...
  2. Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    I know this information has been answered somewhat. But I’m confused as to if Kia can actually program a remote to the car or not. Does it have the receiver? I was told it would be pricey, but that’s not my concern. My concern is does the car actually have the receiver to accept the programming...

    Hey everybody! This past summer I purchased a 2014 soul base with a 6 speed manual with just around 50k on it. It really was an emergency purchase since my previous car died (I was able to push that one to 210k!). I got my soul for an absolute steal at $8k, then $7,500 with the trade in on the...

    Hey all! Excited to join the forum. I just bought a new 2019 Soul Base with Manual Transmission, and I love it so far (and got a great deal on it). There are really only two things I'd like to upgrade: • Adding remote keyless entry (remote start not needed) • upgrading the stereo to...

    What are the options for keyless entry/alarms when it comes to the 2011 Kia Soul base model? 5 Speed manual. Electronic locks with a standard key. What should I be looking out for? Most dealers in my area are charging $200 for a basic setup with the installation.
  6. Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Over 30 minutes of fiddling and I can't figure out how to get this open without breaking the plastic casing. Already found the small screw behind the KIA logo but that still didn't make a difference in pulling it apart. My key was bent and after bending it back the switchblade button no...

    SO I bought the cheap $15 remote keyless entry for my 2018 Base Soul from Amazonhttps://www.amazon.com/FICBOX-Universal-Vehicle-Keyless-Central/dp/B01HB5M5R2/ref=pd_rhf_se_p_img_7?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=07Q2XMQ5CSHMWC3AJ72V. They all seem to be designed the same, approximate install time 40...
  8. Aftermarket modifications (Gen 2)
    I installed a keyless entry in my soul yesterday. Unbranded from eBay. $13 and works great. I didn't want an alarm or remote start so this kit was fine and the fobs are similar to the oem style which is nice.
  9. Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    I recently had a standalone key cut for my 2016 soul+ which is working out fine. Now the flipkey fob I have is heavy just dangling on my keychain, banging against my dash with every movement of the car. Besides just keeping it in my pocket, does anyone know if another, lighter fob will work...

    We just bought the Base 2017 kia soul. So far it's a pretty nice car. the only downfall is that with a 3 year old the fact that it does not have remote entry gets pretty tedious. Does anyone know of a way that I can get remote entry to the vehicle since it already has power locks that is...

    I purchased a 2017 Alien 2 Kia Soul this past Saturday. I test drove 2 models but not the one I bought. When the sales person went to hand me the key, I noticed there was no remote. Instead I was handed a standard key. Is there a way to tell if my car has keyless entry and if I can just have a...

    Just bought a 2017 Soul Base model. It didn't come with keyless entry. I heard that I can buy a fob and take it to a locksmith to have it cut and programmed to the vehicle. I have not been able to find anyone who has done this to confirm. Any ideas?
  13. Aftermarket modifications (Gen 2)
    Hello, Any comments/recommendation for an aftermarket remote start /keyless entry device for a 2016 Soul + without any option packages. Is the Kia remote start accessory worthwhile. Thanks in advance, tester1
  14. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I recently installed a Pyle Alarm Keyless Entry system in my car, and since then the cruise control light and the set light are on, they won't shut off and cruise control doesn't work now. Any ideas?

    Hi all! I just purchased a 2014 Soul Exclaim. Dealer only had one key. I'd like to get the fobs off of Ebay to save some money. Can anyone tell me if the 2014 Soul Exclaim has standard factory keyless entry? And if so - any advice on ordering off of Ebay? Thanks!

    How can I tell if my car has keyless entry? It didn't come with a key fob but when I lock the doors and shut them all the lights flash besides the headlights
  17. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    So I went to the local Kia dealer and they pulled up the info on my Soul and it did come with keyless entry. The guy gave me a print out of the estimate for the replacement remote and said that's not including the cost to program it. I see key fobs on eBay for 1/3 of the price so I'm wondering...

    Hi guys, Something that I DISLIKE the most on my brand new Soul is the keykess entry... it only unlock the driver's door, and if I want to allow my familly to hop in or open the trunk, I have to click a second time onto the open button... this is really annoying... is there a way to make it...
  19. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    The member's post about the broken door lock switch on his Soul got me to thinking that in a car with only one keyhole, there really should be an alternate way of unlocking the door. The cylinder could fail or the lock freeze, leaving no other way to get into the car short of breaking in or...
  20. Aftermarket modifications (Gen 2)
    Hi all! I know this has probably been discussed before, but I tried to search and came up empty. I have a MY14 Soul with power locks, but no keyless entry because its a base. Is it like the cruise control where the wiring is already there but the remotes just need to be programed? Or do I need...
