  1. Aftermarket modifications (Gen 2)
    Hi all- this is my first post. I bought a 2015 Soul in December after my previous car was totaled in an accident. I admit to buying it kind of on a whim, since you only have so much time with the rental car paid for by the insurance after they total your car. So, it's a 2015 that I bought at the...

    I like to use rubber sleeves on my key fobs to protect them from the inevitable scratches. I usually order from the thejacketstore.com but they did not have the new style yet, neither did the dealer. I found this on Amazon and took a chance and ordered one. It took about 3 weeks to arrive...

    My key is fine but the remote key fob the lock and unlock has holes is it and I cannot remotely unlock or lock anymore. Do I need to replace the whole thing with key or can I just replace the Fob? Where do I go to get this done? A locksmith or the dealership? 2011 Kia Soul I have. Thanks

    Ordered and received my new keyfob. I just have to replace the top half. Does it have any screws or is it just prying it apart with needle nose Pilar’s? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hi everyone, New to the forum here, so pls excuse any redundancy. I need some help in ascertaining if 2010 Kia Soul key has a chip inside it or not. Need to get a replacement key prepared, folks suggested to visit Walmart to get it done. Question to the learned forum members are, 1. Whether...
  8. 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...
  9. Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    So I am researching kits and parts and frankly I do not like the fobs that come with the cheaper keyless systems. But it seems like these are mostly generic/universal fobs that can be programmed so any universal fob could work. My question is if it is possible to get a universal fob that has...

  11. 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...
  12. How To / DIY (Gen 2)
    My key fob too often would sound the horn. Any action could set it off. Lean against the car to check the wipers, kneel to pick up something, or any number of activities might activate it. Terrible for the neighbours, and it often would take time to realize it was MY car, and what set off the...

    Like several others on the forum, I purchased a used Soul (2016+) with only one key fob. I need to order another, but the ones I am seeing online show the FCC ID as OSLAKA-875T and the Model number as OKA-875T, whereas my key shows FCC ID as OSLAKA-870T and the Model number as OKA-870T. When I...
  14. 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...
  15. Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Hi yall, Yeah upset here. Lost a fob most likely thrown out with trash. I know that unless I change the key lock on the driver door, even a new fob will not stop someone with old fob from getting in car. :grumpy: Ok, so any help in finding a new fob online? Read not to buy on eBay; which goes...
  16. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hi everyone, I'm just wondering if anyone has taken apart a key fob to repair it and if so, I would like some info on the insides. I got two key fobs when I bought my 2012 Soul. One works fine. The other was obviously the one that was used all the time by the previous owner. The fob works, but...
  17. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    So here's the story. About a year ago the pin gave out on my key fob, and as a replacement I used a wire to keep by key in place until the entire piece that holds the key cracked, leaving my fob looking like this. The remote still works as well as it ever did, but as you can probably assume...

    Does anyone know if the 5 yr warranty cover the key fob? It stopped locking today :culpability:
  20. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hi everyone! Last month I purchased my 2014 Kia Soul Plus and I love this car. What I don't love is that when I bought it, it didn't come with the key fob. It only came with a key. I have begun the search in replacing the key fob and as we all know.. it can be pricey. So my question is, can I...
