  1. Wiring Diagram for 2014 Hatch Release?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    So... I was working on my aftermarket head unit over the weekend and the fuse blew. I didn't have any extra 15 fuses on me, so I swapped the one for the hatch release to test that everything was wired correctly. It was, and that is done. However, after I went to the parts store to pick up the...
  2. Hatch Lock

    Soul Problems (Gen 3)
    When I lock the car after getting out, it never locks the back hatch. I looked at user settings....what am I missing. I have to use the app to lock it.
  3. Remote starter question, Rear hatch

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Got a remote starter installed when I got my soul. I start the car with the remote start, then I push the button again to unlock, the rear hatch will not open unless I open a random door first. I talked to the people who installed it, They said it works how ever Kia designed it. The kia dealer...
  4. Rear hatch glass leak

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Anyone else have the glass on the back hatch leak? Noticed mine was leaking not at first,just thought the back glass was dirty for some strange reason. But noticed upon running it through a car wash,that sure enough,water will be running down the back glass on the inside!! Guess I’ll be...
  5. Tailgate/rear hatch will not open

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    We can no longer open the tailgate/rear hatch using the remote key and must remove the small panel opening on the inside in order to manually open it. All other doors are opening and closing as usual. Everything else appears to be working well. I checked the fuses -- no issue. I am guessing...
  6. Lift gate / hatch lock not locking

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    2015 Soul Plus We've tried every combination of door locks, remote/key using door lock and 'HOLD' (whatthehell does that mean anyhow?). Won't lock, no noise when activated. New batteries in the remote/keys, and every other function works fine. Neither remote/key works Any ideas where to start...
  7. 2017 Soul Base Water inside hatch

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    I have only seen one post in the Gen I side about this. When I get the car washed at an automatic wash, there are streaks of water that comes and leaves droplets on the back window. It loos as if its coming out from the corners of the third brake light. When I first saw the droplets I thought...
  8. 2014 Hatch mod?

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 2)
    Has anybody ventured into removing the plastic interior hatch panel? Had the rear seats down and noticed the difference in cabin echo and road noise from behind car, since seat backs no longer acts as a baffle. Thought I could pull this panel off, stick on some 3m sound deadening, then...
  9. Rear Hatch Bumper/Step

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I use my Soul not only as a daily driver but also as a hauler, I load things in and out of the rear hatch quite often and some of the items weigh close 80lbs and are awkward. I've noticed some scrapes in the paint that go down to the black plastic; the dealership says it's not a fault in the...
  10. Trunk hatch lift supports go bad?

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I never had the lift supports on any car go bad before and mine just went bad yesterday. I have to hold up my trunk now if I want to get in there. I went on ebay and found two supports for less than $30 new. They are cheap to buy I guess. Part# 81780-2K000 I wonder if the extreme heat did it.

  12. Push-button key fob and closed hatch...

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    So I learned something new... When I got to work last Thursday morning, I tossed my fob/keys into my bag as I usually do. Late that afternoon as I'm leaving, a coworker asks for help moving materials. Tell him sure and go put my bag in the trunk. As I'm closing the hatch, I realize my keys are...
  13. Rear Hatch Alarm Always on...

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I just bought a 2012 for my college bound daughter. The problem I have is the Rear Hatch or Tailgate Alarm is always on, even though it is closed, and it does lock. Could use some advice in how to tackle this. Do I need to replace the latch mechanism? Thanks!

  18. 2013 Rear hatch paint texture?

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Just bought a 2103 black soul. I waxed it up with some nice turtle wax for black cars, a liquid wax. Every part of the car is like a mirror except the rear hatch. It feels smooth to the touch and is very reflective, but it appears to have a "hammered" look. Like there are 100s of little...

  20. Rear hatch rust

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hi, I noticed a small bit of rust just below the rear window after this winter. I brought it to my service girl's attention here in Barrie, she took a picture and said she would show it to the service manager. Over a month later no one had gotten back to me. I called and left a message for the...
