  1. Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    My Soul keeps locking the doors, it is just a plain Soul with no special Features. Anyone else have this problem. I did try the search. No place but the dealer to get a spare key for the garage and he wants 80 dollars just to Program the key machine. Thanks Jim
  2. 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. New batteries in the remote/keys, and every other function works fine. Neither remote/key works Any ideas where to start...

    I searched before posting and see where people installed Viper alarms. While it's cheap and gets the job done, I would like to use factory parts and not splice into the cars wire harness if at all possible. Anyone know what the specifics are to add factory central locking. Thanks in advance.

    How can I lock my 2016 Exclaim with a smart key & leave it running? It's been 100degress here in SC a lot this month & I want to be able to lock car with it running & go into a store. The wife's Flex can be locked with another smart key or the keyless entry keypad on the door, but I can't...

    Just got a new 2014 Kia Soul and the horn beeps every time I lock the car (on first press of button) or unlock the car (second press of button but need to press it twice to unlock all doors). I have looked in my owners manual and I cannot see a way to change it. My model doesn't allow for...

    I have a new 2013 Soul. When I lock the system it only "Chirps" which is rather mousy. Can the system be programmed to sound the horn when the system is being locked? Hope this makes sense. Thanks, Al E
  7. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    We just got our 2013 Kia Soul + and one thing that kind of bothers us is the chirp that the car makes when we lock it. It is rather loud and a split second longer than other cars that we have had. Is there any way to lessen the sound and make it more of a "chirp" than a "honk"?
  8. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I recently purchased a 2013 Kia Soul+ and love it. I have one issue though. Whenever I unlock the locks with the remote and try to open the hatch, it doesn't open on the first try. I have to pull on it (or press the button under the handle) twice in order for it to open. Is this normal? Does...

    I have an 11' + Shadow (32k miles ATM). 6+ months after owning this car (long term dilemma). The door lock on the driver side doesn't lock full or makes this mrrrrrrrrr sound every time I lock it. Its annoying.

    Does anyone know if there is a locking gas cap for the 2011 Soul? Just purchased a basic model and there is no lock on the gas door. A lockable gas door would also work if there is such a thing. The parts department did not have anything and all the auto parts stores say there is no listing...
  13. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Just want to know if the 2011 Souls have locking steering wheels when engine is off. I did a survey prior to the 2011 coning out and it seems only few of the 2009 and 2010 have the locking steering wheel. I know for a fact that my steering wheel does NOT Lock. Another question....Why did KIA...

    I did not want the factory locking lug nuts but it was put on at the factory and was stuck with paying for them, but they were replaced with regular ones. So with all this being said these are NEW locking lug nuts set with a key. $25 Thanks

    When you press the lock button twice the horn beeps. Unless a door didn't shut all the way. I locked my doors tonight and the horn didn't beep. I thought I left a door open. But lo and behold all the doors were shut. Now my beep is missing no matter what I try. Any thoughts?

    Heres one for you all, on the weekend i got a puncture ( no big deal you would think!) so i went to put on the space saver spare. Got everything out ready and then tried to take off the locking wheelnut, to my disbelief the dealership had supplied me with the wrong adaptor and couldn't take it...
  17. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    OK I was about to post about the doors inexplicably locking themselves when the key isn't in/near the vehicle and if anyone else had experienced that, but I just saw in the manual that yes, after you press the unlock button on the remote, the doors will re-lock themselves 30 seconds later if you...
