    Soul Problems (Gen 1)

  8. Automatic Door Lock Short Circuit

    New Member Introductions
    My key fob stopped locking and unlocking doors on my 2013 Soul. When I popped in a new fuse in the appropriate place, it blew, and I was told I had a short. Anyone else ran into something like this? I'm told the repair may take two hours or eight, depending on how quickly they find the short...
  9. 2010 Door Lock Issue

    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...

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    2015 Soul Plus We've tried every combination of door locks, remote/key using door lock and 'HOLD' (whatthehell does that mean anyhow?). Won't lock, no noise when activated.

  13. Electronic lock failing randomly

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hi. I have a 2013 Soul. My problem is that locking the car is starting to work less and less often. Unlocking always works (so far). With all the doors closed, I tried the keyfob, the driver side door and the passenger side door - all electronic lock buttons don't do anything when this issue...
  14. Lock / unlock using the key in the driver door (not using remote)

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    2106 Soul ex - I can unlock all doors using the inside switch on the driver door. Using the key to lock the car, only the driver door locks. Some day I may think I've locked it, but i't's wide open. Why did Kia determine this to be a good use? To unlock, using the key, I can unlock only the...
  15. Door electric lock switch

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Has anyone changed the drivers side door lock switch on their Gen I Soul? Is there a way to do it without removing the door panel? If not is the switch separate or a multi switch panel that all must be replace together? Our 2010 drivers door switch no longer will unlock all the doors or even...
