  1. Aftermarket modifications (Gen 1)
    I am working on and think I have found someone that can reflash the ECU to remove top speed limiter and raise redline slightly. It will also adjust fuel and timing curves for a little more go.. I will keep updated as I find out the details.
  2. Aftermarket modifications (Gen 2)
    Hey everyone. So installed led turn signal bulbs, but I have gotten a case of the hyper flash going on. I know you can wire in resistors, but I really don't want to do that and add clutter to the engine bay. Does anyone here know where the flash relay is located so that I can swap out for the...
  3. Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Not sure if this is the right sub forum. Please move if not. So, 2014 +. The lane change blinkers are set to 3 flashes. I read in the manual they can be changed to 5 or 7 flashes, but I think I have to have the 'fancy dancy' gauges to do it (which I don't). Am I wrong on this? Can it be...

    Hi all, I just bought a new 2016 Kia Soul + and I'm looking to buy new USB drives to play music in the car. I'm thinking of getting this one: http://smile.amazon.com/dp/B00FJRS6QY/ref=twister_B00JO6RO8C?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1 I ran a search and saw that people have used 32gb drives, but has...
  5. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hello all, I have a standard 2012 Soul that was purchased used. Nothing special on it at all. I think it's a 1.6L if that matters. It did come with an after market keyless entry. No FOB. Have had the car for about a year now and had just developed this problem last month. The parking...

    I was reading my owner's manual regarding playing music stored on USB devices and I must say some of their info is, shall we say, incorrect. The manual states on page 4-152: "When the formatted byte/sector setting of External USB device is not either 512BYTE or 2048BYTE, then the device will not...

  8. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hi I recently bought a 2013 Soul Base Six Speed on November 6th. After reading up on the stereo I learned that you can play music off of a flash drive which seemed like a good idea. I figured its better to carry around a 7 dollar flash drive than my 150 dollar mp3 player. After loading my flash...

    I know that may consumer electronics can only work with 32GB drives or cards, but I need 64GB to hold all my music. I searched here and in the owner's manual, but couldn't find a definitive answer. I'd like to know before I spend the money on a 64GB flash drive. THANKS!

    So I have a 2012 Kia Soul with UVO, right? Well I usually use my iPod and the cable but I find it much simpler to just have the USB plugged in so I don't have to worry about it getting stolen or having the cable on hand in general. So I tried using a Flash drive, and I had only put a couple...
  11. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I have a 2011 base model Kia Soul. Over the past month I have noticed what seems to be a few electrical glitches. 1. Sometimes when I turn on the car all of the dash lights flash on and off. Also, sometimes when driving the car it will do the same thing, but all of the dash gauges will go up...

    Its official....the random feature for playing songs from the flash drive is really bad at randomizing. Normally I hit the random button when i start driving and it plays a mish mash of songs i like, well, yesterday for whatever reason I didn't hit the random button and all of a sudden I...

    I know that tunes need to be MP3 on USB flash drive to play nice with radio. I've got an 8 GB mini I'd like to load up and leave in the car. What I'd really like to know is: 1. Is there any particular order and/or file structure I should use? Should I use folders (for albums or genera) or...
  14. ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    I use a 4GB flash drive with about 500 songs on it. Lately it has begun to freak out on me randomly. :eek: I have to pull the flash drive and wait until I restart the car for it to behave. This has happened 3 times in the last week. Anyone with similar happenings? I'm gonna wipe it and...
  15. Soul Accessories (Gen 1)
    I'm always afraid that if I leave my regular size USB drive inserted in my USB port in my Soul that it looks tempting for thieves to break in to get it. Also, with a regular sized USB Flash Drive inserted, it gets in the way. I'm always throwing stuff like cell phone, pens... in my tray that...
  16. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Instead of an iPod, I've loaded all of my music onto a flash drive, which plugs into the USB port (I love not having to deal with cables). But, my question is, does anyone know if I can leave this flash drive plugged in all the time, even if the car is turned off? Or, should I unplug it before...
  17. ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    I had a flashdrive in the USB port and i was rockin out to some rockin rock (or whatever lol) and all of a sudden the music stopped, i looked at the display screen and it scrolled really fast through the remaining songs in the folder and then it displayed "USB Empty". I was like "wtf?" and...

    This is wonderful info from neuroticfish: Ok, there seems to be some serious confusion here. I hope I can clear this up after the research I had done prior to my purchase. 1) iTunes music won't play on the stereo directly (via non-Apple device input): True All of Apple's protected format...
