  1. Aftermarket modifications (Gen 2)
    In my 2014 Soul Plus, I have just the base Stereo system and I am looking into upgrading. I would really like to upgrade to the OEM Touch Screen system that the higher end Souls have, but I am not sure if this is even possible. I guess my question is can I actually do this and will it work...
  2. Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    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...

    What’s everyone upgrading too? Or are you staying stock? I have the reg red lettering glow from the factory radio. Would be awesome to have apple car play in there and use the existing USB port in ther. Just curious who has what Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I cannot find consistent answer but does one have the head bolt torque specs for a 2011 Soul with the 2.0. I had a timing belt break after 50,000 miles and putting the head back on after getting the valves and valve guides replaced. And yes I have new head bolts. Thanks in advance.

    Lots of folks talk about their DIY projects to upgrade their cars. I am not one of them. However, I did pay a well-regarded shop in Austin to replace my Soul Base radio. At first, I was just thinking mirror with screen and a rear-view camera. I am getting to a point in life where I want some...

    The old Jensen VX7022 had hardware failure so I've upgraded to a Kenwood DMX7705S. It has Android Auto which is pretty cool, much nicer than the old one.

    This looks promising for those of you looking to ditch the wire for Android Auto without having to buy a new phone (yes, your phone needs to be wireless AA compatible too) and wireless AA compatible headunit or new car with a wireless AA compatible headunit...

    Hello Friends. I'll make this as condensed as possible as your time is valuable. About a year ago, I bought a used 2013 Soul from a Hyundai dealer locally with about 59K on it. With 63K on it, I've been told it has a blown head gasket by my very honest mechanic. Not only that but the vehicle...

    Howdy. I’ll preface this by saying that I realize old school mirrors and eyeballs are best when it comes to parking. That said, I’ve always been a “pull in” parker vs. a “back in” parker. But this new fangled rear camera has me kind of wanting to embrace the idea of backing into parking...

    I recently bought the 2018 Exclaim (without the upgraded audio/subwoofer package) and pulled out the head unit. The wiring looks different from some of the diagrams I've seen posted here for the 2017 and earlier models. Does anyone know if it's a new connector and layout? I'd like to keep the...
  11. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Head gasket? Cracked head, intake manifold? On my recently purchased Soul with 55k miles, 2.0L engine, I noticed that the coolant level was going down. Added coolant and didn't think too much. Today I went to replace the spark plugs and on the #2 (counting from the belts) I saw a lot of brown...

    Super nice upgrade I did. I have the stock reverse camera and it works great along with steering controls. Only thing I lost was Sirus. $340 best price I could find for 8"
  13. Soul Accessories (Gen 1)
    New LED Head light bulbs, switchbac turn-signal & DRL on 2nd Gen Soul and New Badges. Here is a little update on my 2nd gen. Had LED DRL strip but were not bright enough. I added these individual eagle eye 1watt that are super bright. I also added New LED headlight bulbs that are awesome...

    Since I kept reading conflicting info I thought I'd post what I've found. This is for the 2013 with the stock stereo, not the Uvo or anything fancy, I have no idea if other years are the same, but I suspect the 2014 works fine with any old lightening cable - Bluetooth works, but the track...

    Upgrading 4" LCD UVO head unit to 8'' LCD with Nav and still retaining UVO features I just recently purchased a 2016 KIA Soul Exclaim with the Umber package. I absolutely love the car, my only regret was that it didn't have the Infinity system it came with the 4" LCD UVO w/o Navigation system...

    My wiring has been double checked by a pro who told me that it is good to go. Also, he didn't know how to connect to the system control terminal of the stock power amp. So I have no sound. Had to put the stock deck back. Does anyone know what I connect that wire to? Infinity system wiring...

I already have one in my soul, so after installing it in her car she didnt like it (it was too distracting:angry:)...
