  1. 12 V Power Outlet (Cigg Lighter) doesnt work 2012 model.

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    USB port still works fine. Fuse is good. Is any of the fuses under the hood connected to that? Will that outlet just pull out to change or does the dash have to come apart? Thanks.
  2. Easy Constant Power Outlet Tucked Behind Fuse Cover (Great for Sirius/XM Receivers)

    How To / DIY (Gen 2)
    This mod was completed on a 2016 base Soul. It should work for all 2014-2016 models and possibly other years. This is a quick and easy way to add a 12V power source that has constant power, has short wires and tucks neatly above the fuse panel just behind the fuse door. It's great for people...
  3. Wiring dashcam to 12V outlet

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 1)
    Hey everyone, I've had a dashcam on my car (Mini 0805) for quite some time now. Love it, but when it comes to running the wire it's a bit tricky. I can get it into the headliner no problem, but when it has to go down the A pillar with the hard plastic airbag cover the wire runs along the...
  4. Rear power outlet add on

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Does anyone know if a rear power outlet can be added on a 2015 Soul? We test drove a '17 and it had one, so we thought they all did. We bought a '15 and it has what looks like a place for one (if you cut out where it should be), but how can you tell if the wiring is there?
  5. Power Inverter to plug into power outlet

    Soul Accessories (Gen 1)
    I travel a lot on long routes by car, so I'm always having to charge something on the road. I had an old 400W inverter, but it started acting funny and I quit using it. With our 2014 Soul having two power adapters up front, I've really not had to worry much about replacing it. However, I...

  10. Utility Outlet - Make it on All the Time - My Idea

    How To / DIY (Gen 1)
    I have seen posts here about rewiring to get the utility outlet on 24/7. Then I came up with this little idea! You can wire two "Add a Fuse" adapters back to back, and install them across two circuits - making the line to the utility outlet hot from another "always on" circuit. You end up...
  11. Power Outlet Connector

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I'd like to know what the 'trick' isd in seperating the 12v power outlet connector? I've done all I could think of but no luck. Thank you in advance for any help.
  12. Cookstown Outlet Mall

    We took a nice cross-country run up to Cookstown today. Thelma and I needed new shoes, but we scoped out the beginning for a soon to be run Soul Cruise. Marc, Soul Sailor and Homer1 came along for the fun. We parked close to this one.......never did see the owner.
  13. power outlet not working

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    My power outlet has stopped working twice. The first time, service said it was a blown fuse. It has stopped working again after 6 months. I only plug in the Garmin or my phone. Anyone know about ongoing issues with the outlets?

  15. Removing Radio fascia and installing extra outlet

    How To / DIY (Gen 1)
    I finally got tired of charging my phone and gps in front of the shifter and decided I wanted a power outlet in the sunglass holder. I started by removing the radio fascia. It took me a minute to find the right tool, my first few failed attempts resulted in a few scratches and mars on the bezel...
  16. 3rd Kia - 1st Soul! Only 1 Power Outlet?

    New Member Introductions
    Hello All "Soul"-Mates! (sorry, but my wife thought it was funny) Drove my 2011 White Base home tonight and have looked out the window several times admiring it. It is parked next to my Daughter's 2010 Forte and my Wife's 2008 Sedona! The only thing I want to do to the car right away is get a...
  17. Power Outlet / Cigarette Lighter

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Can the power outlets be used with an actual cigarette lighter? In other words, if I were to buy the correct size cigarette lighter would I be able to use it in the power outlet? Or would I blow a fuse and cause my dash to catch on fire? It seems funny how nowadays cars come with cigarette...
  18. Would anyone know how to make Power Outlet Live all the time?

    How To / DIY (Gen 1)
    Just wanted to know if anyone here knows what steps I should take to make one of the two Power Outlets on the fronr console live at all times. I don't know anything about wiring but this seems like it should be easy to do. My previous car had two outlets in the front, one ALWAYS live and the...

    Hi all. My first post on here. I'm a new owner of a Vanilla Shake Soul 4U, in Toronto. I've looked in these forums for answers but could not find answers. I have a couple question since I am new with the Soul. Does one of the two front Power Outlet remain on when the engine is off? My previous...
  20. USB/Power outlet plate

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    My wife's Soul can't seem to keep the black plastic area around the USB and power adapters in place when removing her cell phone charger except by holding it in by hand. As she pulls out the cell phone charger, the entire black panel is removed from the dash and it has to be clicked back in to...
