    A month after purchase of my new Exclaim, the ignition key wouldn't pop out of the fob when I pressed the button. I tried the usual fixes, all for naught. I put that key back in my car junk drawer and grabbed the spare. Worked like a charm for about a month and now it does just the opposite...

    I have a question......does the Soul, 2011, come with one or two remote keys? On the standard equipment list it states one folding key, does that mean you only get one?

If you need an extra key or two, (blank keys, not chipped) to keep in your wallet or in a magnetic box to be placed on the Soul's body...

My wife gets one, I get one and there is a spare... However when my wife tried to use hers it did...
