    I just spent the last two days installing a Blue Ox base plate on my car so that I can tow it for work. This won't be a step by step how to so much as just a few tips based on my experience with this project. #1. Have a professional do it for you, the headache you'll avoid is worth what a...

    I am installing some new speakers in all the doors, and an amp. I was curious if anyone could tell me the best way to get speaker wire through the front doors. I can run the speaker wire through the rubber boot thing on rear doors, but the front doors look like that it is a plug. Any help would...

    Hi all, tried to do as much research as I could before posting but I've read all I could find with not much to go on. Anyways, my father bought a wrecked 2015 Soul base with A/T and it needed both headlights replaced. I thought we could go ahead and see if the factory HIDs were plug and play. So...

    by Bgblk572 , Yesterday at 10:16 AM Hi! I have a 014 Soul plus and I wondered I the hole and mounting bracket for the sub is back behind the plastic even if I don't have the upgraded stereo. I have the dash speakers but not the sub and would like to put a sub in without losing what storage...

    Well I bought the auto headlight stalk with the fog switch and the photo light sensor (our cars without auto lights have a dummy blank peice that holds the wire) that goes on top of the dash. I gave it a try and it works great! It even has the fog indicator on the dash when fog lights are on...

    The car needs a manly horn :) I’m going with the Wolo Big Bad Max 619 - hopefully it will inject the correct amount of tenor and add a little weight to the cars light hearted personality - hopefully it will be installed by my mechanic no later than Friday - will provide results upon completion.

  12. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Oh boy, wife is going to get upset soon! I attempted to add on a keyless lock/unlock remote on her new 2014 Base Soul. Seemed to go fine until I checked the hatch/liftgate. The other four doors lock and unlock fine but the hatch doesn't unlock with the remote, door switch. or the switch in...

    Hey guys. First time poster here. I recently installed a new pioneer head unit in my 2010+ and everything works fine except for the radio. I'm now getting a very weak FM signal and no AM at all. I'm fairly certain it's connected properly because I lose all FM signal if I physically remove the...

    I just bought my 2011 Kia Soul + two weeks ago. I really want to get some angel eye headlights but I want to buy the angel eye kit and do it myself (rather than buying the whole headlight). I am not familiar with headlights and I don't know where to even begin. I am thinking about ordering the...

    Installing Factory Fog Lights Without Removing Bumper? Hello, this looks like a great forum! I just bought a 2012 Soul and LOVE IT so far. The only negative is the huge black holes where the fog lights should be. I asked my dealer about installing the lights and was told that it would void...

    First thing I did when we got our new Kia Soul! home was to contact Akebono to see if they had some pads. Coming from a Mini Cooper S the wheels would turn black driving from the car-wash home with the oem pads. The Akebono pads were an awesome upgrade, stopping was as good or better, no noise...

    Good day! We just bought a 2012 'base' and love the car, but that open hole above the radio on the dash not so much! How difficult is it to install the 'Multi Box' (the thing with the 'lid' as found on the higher from level(s))? Any idea of what the thing would cost? All the best, R
