  1. Soul General Discussion (Gen 3)
    In the owners manual on page 4-81 or references parking sensors and even has diagrams involving the soul. In not aware of these as options on any trim level. Is this a future addition?

    May have already been a hack for this but is there a way to make drive lamps come up with parking lights? Right now they don’t come on unless headlights are on. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Neither of my parking (position lights) were working on my newly purchased Soul. I replaced the right-side bulb as it was clearly burned out - no change. I couldn't get the left-side socket out without removing the entire headlight assembly - it was just stuck, and I couldn't get a good...
  4. Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    I've been noticing something odd. If I'm at a red light (stopped) and I accelerate hard I see the Parking Brake & Brake Fluid Warning Light appear then it turns off within a second or two. It's the only time I see it when I'm accelerating hard from rest/stop. Is that something I should get...
  5. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    This issue started happening just around the start of January, which coincided with the car not starting a few times. I thought it was a sign that the battery was on the way out. After not being able to start her on a few cold mornings I realized that I had the original battery in the car from...

    I just bought a pair of purple LED H21W bulbs to replace my existing ones which are amber. I honestly don't think I'll get in trouble when they're on but think I might when I use my turn signal and a cop sees it. If I do get pulled over I don't mind changing them but want to see how long before...
  8. Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Where I live there are a lot of Souls to be found, it is not unusual for there to be at least one other Soul of the same style and color close to where I parked. I was wondering if anyone has done something special to differentiate their Soul from the others, something to make it easier to spot...

    While trying driving to a parking spot--I had foot on break -- suddenly loud noise engine reved - accelerated - almost could't stop. This happened before a year ago. Everyone thought I hit the gas pedal but I didn't. Both times happened while in parking lot. I'm taking the car to dealer Monday.
  11. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hi All, I recently purchased a 2011 Kia Soul 1.6l 5spd. I have a problem with it with one wheel parking break not holding at all. If i park on somewhat of a hill I pull on the handle like no tomorrow and leave it in the gear. Reason is that the car creeps with the parking break pulled in...
  12. How To / DIY (Gen 1)
    I bought a 2014 PLUS! I want to tap into the side marker in the headlights and run a line to power fender markers like the ones on a base model. So, how does one TAP into these fancy bulb sockets? I might like to TAP into a directional signal wire, but all the wires are inside the...
  13. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hello all, I have a standard 2012 Soul that was purchased used. Nothing special on it at all. I think it's a 1.6L if that matters. It did come with an after market keyless entry. No FOB. Have had the car for about a year now and had just developed this problem last month. The parking...

    Any good ideas on protecting front/rear bumpers from parallel parking pitfalls? Living in Chicago most people don't know how to park so they hit your car. I want to minimize the bumper destruction from license plate dings and such from other cars when possible. Luckily my soul has the "black...
  15. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I just bought a 2010 Soul and upon driving it for the first time after dark, I noticed that I didn't have any front parking lights. I looked in the manual and it looks like the parking are on the sides of the headlights; not below the headlights with the turn signals. I looked in the...

    Hi all, Its been a while! Soul has be running pretty well. Some paint concerns, but otherwise a great car. Well, my 2011 Soul ! is now hitting that time when things need routine replacement. Under the headlight, there is an amber light. I think its the parking light (comes on with first...
  17. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    OK, I searched for this and if its here i'm sorry. I have my battery drain completely dead cause my parking light stayed on. I have a Soul 2012 and found this out today and would like to see if it happens to others. I followed these steps and repeat it every time. 1. Starting with the car...

    Long story short: I installed my HID kit a few weeks ago. After a few days i realized my driver's side bulb was a yellowish color. while my passenger side light was the normal 6000k blue/white color but it was DIMMER than my driver's side light. I ALSO realized that my parking light on the...

    After a fresh wash. Well, i mean, not that fresh as I drove it all the way to SUgarland after I washed it. Hence why it may not look so "fresh." And yes, i know, i desperately need to vacuum my car. :(
