    Hello! I got my soul in 2012, it’s under 120,000 KM and I have never had any issues until now. My battery keeps draining after a few days of being idle. I’ve changed the alternator, got a new battery and the last diagnostic test done showed a drain from the radio (which stopped working after...

    So the car has 170k on her now. Just relocated down south to Georgia from New England and now have a company car so no longer drive the car really. I tend to drive her once every week worst case every 2 weeks shorts trips here and there on the weekends. After about a month or so of the above she...

    Just got my 2012 Soul, base model. I paired my phone up just fine with the Bluetooth through the radio. Seemed pretty straightforward. If my phone rings, the screen says "incoming call" and displays my caller's name as it is in the contacts. All wonderful. But I can't figure out for the life of...

    A couple questions recently about rough Idle prompted this thread https://www.kiasoulforums.com/4-new-member-introductions/114385-greetings-ozark-missouri-2014-base-124k-miles-p0420-recall.html...

    Hi, I am looking for possible solution for a 2012 Kia Soul. Suddenly the fob only works on driver door. The other 3 doors and hatch do not lock/unlock either with fob or switch on door.

    Greetings, In the fall, I noticed some steam/vapor emanating from the vents in front of the windshield of my 2015 Kia Soul + (only 21K miles) and had no clue why that was occurring. As we got into the rainy season in the SF Bay Area, I noticed that the windshield was fogging up excessively and...
  7. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I have a 2012 with the 2.0l with 128k miles. Occasionally when I start the engine I get a metal on metal rattling for a few seconds then normal. If I give it some gas it goes away. I am having trouble isolating the source due to the inconsistent nature of the problem. The car could sit overnight...

    So our 2012 soul base model was having issues sometimes not starting. I found threads on here that the negative terminal to the shock tower needed cleaning. While removing I sheared off the existing bolt. Do I just get a new cable and 12mm nut and attach to another bolt thread on the shock...

    New to this forum. Would like to know if anyone else has had a problem of the steering tending to "stick" or needed to push a little harder while driving at speed, 60-70, just to make minor normal corrections to maintain position in lane that would come and go. Of course when got to the Dealer...

  12. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Over the past few weeks I've noticed that when I put gas in her (no matter how much I've experimented with diff amounts) she has issues starting and run sluggish for a bit and die if I don't ride the clutch and keep the rpms higher. So I decided to leave it running while refueling and it will...
  13. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Okay so I've searched for this problem but wasn't able to find it anywhere. My 2011 + 2.0 is getting on average 18-19 MPG and experiencing some sort of electrical issue I think. When you stand behind the car you can smell that it is for sure burning WAY to much fuel. So long story short the car...

    Model 2015 Base, Auto, 80k Miles Recently my driver side power window button for the passenger window has started to stick down. I use the windows quire a bit when driving solo, and this is easy to miss. This results in the window motor overheating and not being able to roll the window up...

    So had to post here so I can ask my question elsewhere. :bi_polo: I've driven a 2011 Soul + for 7 years and am passing it on to my 16 year old. Bought myself a 2018 Soul+ with audio upgrade 3 days ago. Wanted audio, but was worried about push-button start. Rightfully so, because this morning...

    Got the car back from the dealer, and was doing errand and made several stops. After the car was sitting for roughly 6 hours, I tried to start it and it had the difficulty starting that was in an earlier post (although very minor), plus-- the tach wasn't working, and the "low sound" happened...

    Greetings, All-- Issue in original post: http://www.kiasoulforums.com/10-soul-problems-gen-1/109362-2012-t-transmission-issue.html I finally took our Soul to a dealer today to have the sluggishness checked out. The took their time (2 hours or so), and drove it around for twenty minutes. No...
  18. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Door locks stopped working. Found the fuse was blown - when I went to replace the fuse I got a pretty good spark (and new fuse blew). I have had wiring issues in the past (rear hatch) due to the very cold climate and tiny wires that Kia has used. I am thinking of checking the wires at the rear...

    I have a 2012 Soul+ with the 6-speed transmission. We were out and around last Tuesday, and all was fine until after the last errand. I had a little trouble getting it to start, and it was going real slow like it was stuck in a low gear. I had the pedal all the way to the floor and it didn't...
  20. Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Hey there, first post on this forum. I have a 2014 Soul +, 2.0 engine, with about 70K logged. I'm experiencing intermittent cold starts, where the engine has a miss issue. It did throw a code once, a bit back, and did miss pretty hard one particular start. The engine smoothed out as it ran for...
