  1. How To / DIY (Gen 1)
    The ignition switch in my GF's 2011 Soul+ has been wonky for the past couple years -- difficult/crunchy to turn and won't spring back from the Start position, so she's been having to manually turn it back from Start to Run every time. Today it finally got stuck in Start for good, so I'mma see...

    Was changing the oil today and while perusing the engine bay, I took a look at what changing the spark plugs would entail when that time comes. Removing the ignition coils to get to the spark plugs looked pretty straightforward, except the rightmost one. Those of you that have done this, were...
  4. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hey everyone. I’m driving a ‘13 Soul 2.0 that’s giving me a cylinder 3 misfire. I changed the plugs and ignition coils and still throw the code. After a bit of messing around, I’m 95% sure it’s the connector to said coil that is messed up. I can’t find the part number for this, and looking on...
  5. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hi, this morning I tried to start my car and it wouldn’t start at all, wouldn’t even turn over. So I jumped it and drove to work. But I realized after I got to work that when I turned it off and got out, the radio stayed on and there was a ding like the key was still in the ignition. Also my...

  7. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I notice in the Kia forum, there have been some posts regarding this problem but not here in the Kia Soul Forum. It happens to me - not everytime - but sometimes I will turn off the ignition, remove the key and . . . it will be very hot. It is not related to accessories or length of trip. Today...
  8. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hello again. If possible, I would appreciate some advice on this recent issue with my 2013 Kia Soul (base - auto - 50K). Trying to recall the sequence: Listening to radio with engine off, left car (remote lock), returned (remote unlock), open/close driver rear door, open/close hatch, get in...
  9. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I just got a bad ignition coil on cylinder 4. I got two cause no one caries them in stock. So i got one for spare and don't have to wait 3 days to get it in at $40 vs $120 tomorrow.

    Thought we'd keep this forever, wife's knees have had enough and it's time for an automatic... dangit! 2010 Kia Soul+ Ignition Special Edition (orange color, black stripes/spoiler/cool gas cap/subwoofer/sunroof etc.), 79,xxx miles, lots of trips/highway, increasing slightly as she's now driven...
  11. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I've done a lot of looking and while I have seen a number of Ignition (Orange) Souls in Plus trim with optional sunroof, fog lights, etc., I have never seen one with the Exclaim package. I believe that would be the two tone interior, heated leather seats, upgraded stereo, etc. Anyone else...
  12. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    My 2012 Soul+ with 2.0 has an occasional misfire and the check engine light comes on. The dealer says 64,000 miles is out of warranty and I must pay $540 for him to replace coil/s and the 4 spark plugs. I'm thinking about changing the parts myself. I thought the dealer said I had 4 individual...
  13. For sale / Trade / Wanted
    Hi! Up for sale is my wife's 2010 Kia Soul. It's the Ignition Orange Special Edition model with a manual transmission. This was one of the ways to get the rare manual transmission in the larger 2.0 liter engine along with several nice options. The car has 48K miles on it and it still has...
  14. Aftermarket modifications (Gen 1)
    I was wondering if there is a aftermarket kit available so that the headlights go on when you turn on the ignition switch and off when you turn off the car. My Soul Base does not have this feature and it would be nice not to remember to turn the column switch each time. I don't mind driving with...
  15. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I can't believe I have learned to like an orange car...but the Ignition makes me smile. Actually prefer the '11 Ignition because I don't care for the stripes, but I do like the SE wheels. Anyway...we went to dinner tonight and we were in separate cars. As we were both walking to our cars...

    when i tried to start car this morning, the ignition just started clicking.... any ideas 2012 base+ 40K miles
  17. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    So not sure if its a problem or not but it certainly wasn't happening before. So anyway I'm at 4,980 miles on my 14 base Soul and Love it :). But I've noticed something when turning off my car to pull the key out the last 400 miles or so. I'd just switch the car off and pull out the key simple...
  18. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    My 2014 Soul has a ignition lock cylinder that has a great amount of play after the car is started. The service rep says this is normal. How can a loose lock cylinder be normal?
  19. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Was on the interstate yesterday outside of Atlanta and within five minutes three different Ignition Souls passed me going the other way. First two were 2011s (I presume) and the third was a Special Edition. I can go a month or longer without seeing one and seeing three in that short a time was...
  20. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Must be my old age, but for some reason I am liking every Ignition (orange) I am seeing these days. I know they only made them in '10 and '11 but is there any chance a few '12s snuck through the assembly line somewhere?
