  1. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Car: 2012 Kia Soul + When the key is in the first turned position only the radio turns on but the locks, lights, etc don't work. Even the warning sound that the key is in the ignition with the door open doesn't beep. When key is turned all the way forward (before engine start) they all turn...
  2. Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Just wondering if anybody has similar problems and if we know the cause. 2016 plus 2.0L. I think it MIGHT be heat soak related because when it's cold outside or if the car has had a chance to cool for a few hours it is fine but as soon as it gets hot after like 10-20 minutes normal driving it...
  3. ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    Is one side a better choice than the other for routing cables? Driver's side seems like a good choice because the battery is on that side, but I'm wondering if one side of the floor channel is a better choice than the other (e.g., more space). Anyone familiar with these vehicles have an...

    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.

    What type of non-Kia brand power steering fluid can I use for my 2011 Kia Soul! ? I want to flush the system. I've been searching but it is a bit confusing.

    Hi All :rapture: Not really needed, I suppose, but I saw some neat ones on ebay, they looked close to OEM. eBay http://rpmtradeonline.com/RPMtrade/Kia/Soul/Sou07-2010_2011_2012_Kia_Soul_Folding_Side_mirror_OEM.jpg But, looks like there's no power folding! The ones I have now, got modded...

    Will probably buy a new Kia Soul in the next 2-3 weeks. Do any of the models offer driver "seat memory" where you can store the configuration of the driver seat for 2 drivers? I searched the net & didn't see anything about this. Also, from looking at the pictures of the interior I didn't see any...

    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?

    I'm getting ready to install the SSD light bar on my 19 Soul+, yes I know it requires cutting the grille but I'm not going to let that stop me on this vehicle. This brings me to lights: I just ordered a pair of Hella 700FF lights (kit with covers). I also have a set of FF40 (tiny little...

    I am building my Christmas/Birthday/TaxRefund/Lottery wish list and am wondering what our communities current Foam Cannon users use as their base power-washer, and why? Is it only a car wash unit, do you also do your driveway and windows, etc. yada-yada... Help me find my next "family" purchase...

    Model 2015 Base, Auto, 80k Miles Recently my driver side power window button for the passenger window has started to stick down. I use the windows quire a bit when driving solo, and this is easy to miss. This results in the window motor overheating and not being able to roll the window up...

    Hello, Thanks for letting me join. I recently picked up our soul that has approximately 40k for mileage. On our cross country trip my wife noticed it lost power going up a hill. We pulled over and I didn't find anything obviously wrong. After a short break we proceeded with no other...

    Have the sunroof as well and wondering if there is any 12v power up there? Looking to better mount a radar detector up near the mirror and run power there, etc. Otherwise I have to run it up the pillor, etc.

    Hi my name is Jim I am new to the forum and looking for some help. My wifes power door locks quit working so I checked the fuse panel and sure enough the 20 amp fuse was popped. So I tried to replace it and it sparked and got stuck half way in the panel it took a pair of pliers to remove...
  18. 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...

    Hi y'all, I really love my new 2017 base Soul but I only drove it once in the last 30 days because the seat hurts my back so much. I've had the car for 5 months. I cannot make myself comfortable in the seat. I've tried everything. Cushions, seat adjustments, name it and I've tried it. Do you...

    Hi, I'm looking at purchasing a silver 2017 Soul to use for a commuter car. I'm only interested in the 1.6 manual transmission option, automatics need not apply. I fit in the car well (6'5" and 330#, amazed that I fit), the seats seem comfortable, and I really like the way it drives with the...
