    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    We can no longer open the tailgate/rear hatch using the remote key and must remove the small panel opening on the inside in order to manually open it. All other doors are opening and closing as usual. Everything else appears to be working well. I checked the fuses -- no issue. I am guessing...

  11. 2013 Kia Soul Open Door Switch

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    My operator's open door switch is on when the door is closed rendering a warning on the dash and keeping the overhead lamp turned on. This is the second time this has happened and I suspect it has to do with the seat belt catching in the door when I enter/exit the vehicle and close the door...

    How To / DIY (Gen 1)
    It is a dowel with a hole attached with 36# test fishing line. With the cover closed, it makes only a slight bump in the cover but it is completely out of sight. The bottom end goes into kind of a notch in the foam storage box but it rests on the car body.
