    If I leave an accessory plugged in, whether it’s a diagnostic tool or mobile hotspot, will it still be draining the battery when parked overnight?
  3. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I've seen many posts about problems with the AUX port for the stereo system, but have not been able to come up with a solid answer. So, I have a 2012 Soul Base with the 1.6L 6-speed manual. I purchased the car not knowing the AUX wasn't operating like it should. Once I found out it wasn't...

    There's about an 8 inch diameter item on the right side wall of the luggage area on my 2016 Soul+ . It looks like an access port but I tried twisting it and I couldn't turn it with reasonable force. I don't want to break anything so let me ask -should it turn? -what direction? -what's behind it...

    My check engine light came on so I wanted to see what code(s) would show when I hooked up a Bosch OBDII Code Reader. I tried 2 different readers and both remained blank. I took one of the readers to my neighbor and we hooked his car up. It worked just fine. It is the port on my car that is the...

    Has anyone had any experience is using one of the Performance/Fuel Economy chips that plug into the OBD2 diagnostic port. Just curious is they actually work and if the are actually capable of increasing fuel milage since the Souls comes already with ECO feature in them which I assume is...

    First time poster on this website WHOOOP! Anyway, I have a 2011 Soul and have been pleasantly surprised with the lack of maintenance it has needed so far. It has 83,000 miles and is running well. However, I am having a problem with my stereo system when I play music from iPhone and connect it...

    Can the USB port in the Kia be used for anything else other than accessing MP3 files from a flash drive ? Specifically I was wondering if it would be safe and would it work if I connected my phone thru that USB port ? Would the phonebook be available thru the USB if it wasn't able to be...

    Has anyone had any issues with playing the iPod music from your iPhone while connected to the USB port? It works great for me until I receive a phone call then it will not restart. Before I updated the software to ST.PS.USA.E433.140821 the issue was that it would not retain my place in the...

  11. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Hello, I just purchased a 2015 Kia Soul. My question is in regard to the USB port and Bluetooth audio. Let's say my iPhone is connected via Bluetooth and its playing music and my passenger needs to plug in his iphone to charge via the USB port. Can I still play my music or will it automatically...

    Does anyone know what this slot/port is inside the glove box of my 2013 Soul!?
  14. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I just happened to read about this really cool app that has a piece of hardware that plugs in to that service port. It's called automatic. This seems like a good solution for the folks that don't have the parking minder app or if you are just really into...

  17. ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    I plan to replace my Soul's stock radio with the Pioneer AVH-x2500BT. I know that doing so will render the USB/Aux ports non-functional. Is there a way to re-activate the USB port so that I can use it to charge other USB devices? Another option is to wire the USB extender cable from the Pioneer...

    If I plug my Garmin GPS in to any of the three power ports, it take two hands to remove it. I tried a couple other 12VDV items, and they won't even go in. My 2006 Sportage ports are normal size. Anyone else notice this?

    I use a USB for my various songs, but everytime I remove the USB and put it back again it goes back to the first song. It is annoying.... any suggestion.

    I have an iPhone and bought the Kia iPod cable. It works fine but there is an issue. I'm afraid to use it. :eek::eek::eek: I was told that I had to connect it in after the engine was running and disconnect it before shutting my car off or I could short out the upgraded audio that I paid 500...
