  1. 2010 manual soul not starting

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I am having a tough time getting my soul started, at first it would start after 2 or 3 tries and now its after 20 tries. It's not the battery and it makes the starting sound but no engine sounds, and sometimes giving it a little gas while cranking it will make it start but not always. I...
  2. Owners manual not much help.

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    I searched for this but no joy. The manual tells you how to turn on eco mode. I do and the eco lits up green in the cluster. It also says when you restart the car it will still be in eco mode. When I restart sometimes the eco is not lit,is it still in eco mode ? My other question for you long...
  3. Relax this is not another oil thread

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    If this has come up here before perhaps someone can link me to the thread. I drove my daughter's '18 Exclaim onto ramps to change the oil and filter for the first time. I noticed that you can drain more oil from this engine with the rear of the car elevated than with the front elevated. I...
  4. Brake Lights not working

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    When I hit my brakes, only the top brake light works. All my running, parking lights, reverse and turn signal lights work and light up when I turn them on. All 4 red bulbs work in the back, but wont light up brighter when I hit brakes. Only fuse I saw was for LH and RH tail lamps... there’s...

  6. Where are you guys getting wiper refills from? Not the whole blade.

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    OK, so maybe I'm an old geezer about this. Nonetheless, it irks the hell out of me to have to throw away perfectly good metal blades because the rubber is split. In the not-so-long-ago days, you kept your metal part and refilled the rubber. It cost a buck or two. Not 20 bucks to replace...
  7. Not a black soul just dark

    New Member Introductions
    Hi new to the forums from Ohio. I have a 2016 Gray Soul base. Running jokes are as above your soul isn't black but certainly a little dark/dingy, you can't trade that in... How. Could you part with your Soul. There are a fair few others but I enjoy them.
  8. Tire warranty 'not worth the paper it's written on,' .... Continental

    Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 2)
    Tire warranty 'not worth the paper it's written on,' B.C. man says after manufacturer refuses to pay out We should probably replace the OEM tires (circa 47K kilometres) on our 2015 Kia Soul before next winter so I have been looking at a few posts on the subject. I thought this article might...
  9. Not even a year old.....

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    ....and the Soul is already in the shop for an extended period. There was noticeably weird shifting in 1st gear, kind of like the jerkiness that everyone has noticed with the Turbo and the DCT, but a little more pronounced. Took it into the dealership and they told me that they believe the...

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    I have found that the license plate lamps do not light. The bulbs are confirmed as working and all other lamps works. Does anyone have wiring diagrams and locations of connectors related to the license plate lamps they can provide. Thank you in advance for your assistance.
  11. Not really a new member but the forum forgot me

    New Member Introductions
    I had a 2012 Kia Soul Plus with a 2.0 engine and auto. At 95K miles things were just right to trade her in. Got a 2019 Kia Soul Base with 1.6 L engine (You do notice the difference both in power and fuel economy). First Soul was Molten Red. This one is Clear White. Big difference in how smooth...

  14. 2015 Soul Base classic iPod not working

    ICE & Communication (Gen 2)
    I recently bought a 2015 Soul Base, and the owner's manual says it supports the iPod classic. So I bought the funky Aux/USB iPod cable, but it doesn't work. When I plug it in, the radio display says "AUX Connected," but then nothing else ever happens. Even if I start the iPod playing music...

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hello! Hope everyone is doing well! So let me give you a rundown of what's going on because I've been having this fan issue for quite some time going all the way back to March of this year. So what happens is, when I turn on my Kia Soul.. sometimes the fans won't come on at all. I try all fan...
  16. New to forum, not new to the Soul ...

    New Member Introductions
    Hey y'all. I thought I registered before, but it appears I did not. Almost eight years in a Soul 2.0L and the car has far exceeded my expectations. At 153000 kms, the engine is incredibly healthy. The 4-speed tranny is wheezy, but reliable. I moved four houses (not everything obviously) and...

    Hello Everyone, I am a potential new G3 Soul Owner. I will be giving up my 11 yr old Volvo S80 to my oldest as she is learning to drive. So I am in the market for a new car and I have decided on the Soul. I have always liked the quirkiness of them, plus the fact that they versatile in...
  18. Not techno-savvy

    New Member Introductions
    Hello! I’m a two-time owner of new Kia Souls. 2013 and 2016. I originally I’m from Minnesota but I retired almost 2 years ago and moved to Alaska. I guess I’m not as car/computer savvy as I thought because I’ve run into a few problems. In the past when I’ve had a problem I just say forget it...
  19. 2011 Kia Soul+ Rear Defrost Not Working

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Noticed it this morning. The defrost light on the dash is lit when I press the button. Could be it be as simple as a fuse? (Admittedly haven't checked yet). Googled for this and not finding any troubleshooting specific to the Soul. Anyone else dealt with this issue?
  20. Radio does not shut off and drains battery just overnight

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    Hi, I been away a long time, but have a problem I can't seem to fully pin down. I have a 2010 Kia Soul with stock 1 CD, BT radio with subwoofer, amp and lighted speakers and suddenly about 3 weeks ago the radio would not shut off. I thought no big deal no way it would drain the battery as it...
