  1. Aftermarket modifications (Gen 2)
    Hi all- this is my first post. I bought a 2015 Soul in December after my previous car was totaled in an accident. I admit to buying it kind of on a whim, since you only have so much time with the rental car paid for by the insurance after they total your car. So, it's a 2015 that I bought at the...
  2. Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    My 2019 Soul has sounded its horn on numerous occasions when parked in the driveway and when the key fob is in my pocket. There's a horn button (alarm) on the flip key fob which somehow gets actuated if I'm working out in the driveway. In the most recent occurrence, the car was parked in a...

    I like to use rubber sleeves on my key fobs to protect them from the inevitable scratches. I usually order from the thejacketstore.com but they did not have the new style yet, neither did the dealer. I found this on Amazon and took a chance and ordered one. It took about 3 weeks to arrive...
  5. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    My key is fine but the remote key fob the lock and unlock has holes is it and I cannot remotely unlock or lock anymore. Do I need to replace the whole thing with key or can I just replace the Fob? Where do I go to get this done? A locksmith or the dealership? 2011 Kia Soul I have. Thanks

    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 2)
    Any ideas? I am new to the Kia Soul family having purchased this 2016 about 2 weeks ago. Completely - my lack of understanding can be 'operator error". I also can't exactly figure out what kind of audio system I have. My audio does not match any pictures/videos anything I can find online...

    Ordered and received my new keyfob. I just have to replace the top half. Does it have any screws or is it just prying it apart with needle nose Pilar’s? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  10. Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Hi Folks I have a 2016 Kia Soul EX ("Energy" edition, if that matters) in Canada. Actually, it is my wife's car but I am 'allowed' to drive it from time to time. Now, because of the dough-head I am, I lost my key ring in a swamp (long story, involves an ATV, a narrow bridge and physics) I...
  11. New Member Introductions
    Hi everyone, New to the forum here, so pls excuse any redundancy. I need some help in ascertaining if 2010 Kia Soul key has a chip inside it or not. Need to get a replacement key prepared, folks suggested to visit Walmart to get it done. Question to the learned forum members are, 1. Whether...
  12. Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Over 30 minutes of fiddling and I can't figure out how to get this open without breaking the plastic casing. Already found the small screw behind the KIA logo but that still didn't make a difference in pulling it apart. My key was bent and after bending it back the switchblade button no...

    Well, it happened. Put the key down in the trunk, closed the hatch and it locked. D'oh! I had been getting an intermittent "key battery low" message on the dashboard. I check its battery voltage and got 3.2V. Should still be good for a 3V battery?? So thought it may just have been due to the...
  14. Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    So I am researching kits and parts and frankly I do not like the fobs that come with the cheaper keyless systems. But it seems like these are mostly generic/universal fobs that can be programmed so any universal fob could work. My question is if it is possible to get a universal fob that has...

    2011 Kia Soul Hi, let me try and give all the details of what's going on. My key fob (sometimes) only unlocks 3 doors on my Soul. That would be all of them except the front driver's side door. This happens whether using the key fob remotely or the key in the door. I usually go into the...

  17. 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...

  19. How To / DIY (Gen 2)
    My key fob too often would sound the horn. Any action could set it off. Lean against the car to check the wipers, kneel to pick up something, or any number of activities might activate it. Terrible for the neighbours, and it often would take time to realize it was MY car, and what set off the...
