  1. Engineering Mode 2016 Kia Soul EV ?

    ICE & Communication (Gen 2)
    Hi Guys, I was wondering if anyone know how to get into the engineering mode on the stock Kia Soul head unit, hoping to be able to add some custom apps and such. I've looked online and the instructions/suggestions for similar models don't seem to work.
  2. Sport mode gets me a little hot......

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 3)
    ...No not like that. On the occasions that I need to turn it on, I've accidentally hit the seat heater once or twice "ERMERGERD, I'm flying! So much that my tookus is getting a little toasty! err wait, wth....". I'm just hoping I never accidentally hit the ignition button. I'm kind of...
  3. Telluride AWD lock mode and torque vectoring

    New Member Introductions
    Do the CDN trims have lock mode and torque vectoring? Salesperson said no and I believe I read somewhere in this forum no but this is right from the Kia.ca website: ADAPTIVE HANDLING Regardless of where your journey takes you, activating Drive/Terrain Mode makes short work of mud, snow, rain...

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 3)
    How do I turn this off? I read the manual but it doesn't seem to match what I see on my dash board. Thanks from a new 2020 Kia member ?
  5. Eco mode

    New Member Introductions
    When I bought my Base1.6 model Friday. I hesitated because there was not a freeway to test performance. Otherwise the Soul performed well on my test drive. Just surface streets. Now that I'm able to drive on freeways. I'm finding this car is lacking power to get up to 80. Is this...
  6. '19 exclaim metric to english dash in sport mode?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    I'll be lazy and ask here instead of pouring over the boring manuals..... In sport mode the torque bar graph reads in Newton meters and the boost graph reads in kPa. Is there a setting to change that to good 'ole imperial units........Foot Pounds and PSI ?? I do hope so......:grey:
  7. DCT -Sport mode Question!

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    is it me or the nature of the DCT. in sport mode she really does not like being anywhere below 40 in auto trans mode. anything below 40mph and its impossible to hold a constant speed. tried it near the house where the residential speed limit is 30mph and wow, cant hold it at 30mph. I'm either...
  8. Door lock mode changed (mysteriously)

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hey all, I'm back with another round of Mystery Soul Theater. 2011 Kia Soul !, and out of the blue two days ago the door locks started behaving completely differently. Original behavior: (On keyfob or at driver's side door) Hit button once, driver's door unlocks. Hit twice, and all doors...
  9. 2017 plus normal dive mode

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Am I missing something here cause on my 2014 + sport comfort and normal all lit up when using the drive mode on steering wheel. On my 2017 + I’ve noticed they took away the desperate active eco button and tied it to the driving mode button now. I’ve used a flashlight and there is a normal and...
  10. Eco vs Normal vs Sport Mode

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Hello, I have a 2017 Soul. And I was just wanted to make a post to see what your thoughts are on the different driving modes. I personally don't mind Eco, and feel it shifts smoother but when trying to go on hills I may change to normal, and for freeway merging I usually go on Sport. If I ride...

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    I have 25 000km (15 000m) on my Soul SX 2015 and i didn't see a difference when is ON or OFF!? I know when is on the transmission shift faster in acceleration but it looks like the engine is choked! With the square front of the Soul not sure it works as well as a more aerodinamic car (Rio...
  12. Just bought my first Soul and have a question about Eco Mode.

    New Member Introductions
    Hey, so I bought a 2011 Kia Soul+, 2.0L, I have been driving with the Eco mode turned on thus far, but I'm curious as to whether that will increase wear and tear over time on the Transmission or anything else. Thoughts? This is the best car ever. I've been in Mercedes not this cool!
  13. Lane change flash mode

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Not sure if this is the right sub forum. Please move if not. So, 2014 +. The lane change blinkers are set to 3 flashes. I read in the manual they can be changed to 5 or 7 flashes, but I think I have to have the 'fancy dancy' gauges to do it (which I don't). Am I wrong on this? Can it be...

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hello We have a 2010 Soul. Base model. Just under 150K miles on it. Its happened before but this weekend on our trip to Savannah Ga and back at times when I hit 80+ mph I would lose the Eco mode.

  17. Driving regularly in ECO mode?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Just got my Soul on the weekend. Wondering whether you're supposed to drive with ECO mode on. My friend has a Ford Escape and was told to only use ECO mode for towing. I thought ECO mode was to get better gas mileage. Can anyone shed some light on this? I would like to turn ECO off if...

  19. Using ECO Mode Concerns

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    I've already read that many other owners have noticed little or no difference in gas mileage with or without using ECO mode. I wanted to believe it would give me better gas mileage and would still prefer to use it even if there's just a little benefit. However, what I've noticed is a problem...
