  1. Tire pressure?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 3)
    Picked up my new 2020 Soul EX with 18" wheels last week. Great car! While flipping through dash screens, I noticed the tire psi was 48, so obviously the dealer failed to deflate them before delivery. When I checked the manual, it shows 36psi for all 3 wheel sizes but the inside drivers door...
  2. Custom tyre size and tyre pressure

    Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 1)
    Installing custom size tyres 215/65/R15 on 2012 Kia Soul +. What should be the tyre pressure? We don't want to use the door sticker pressure as its no longer original size. I found this the following link for calculating tyre pressure. The weight of 2012 Kia Soul is about 2800 lbs without...
  3. Light rebuild and now no oil pressure

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Hello, So I have a 2014 2.0L and 1 rod bearing went on it. $6000 through dealership and my CPO warranty won't cover it because I do Uber/Lyft and they have a lovely exclusion in there of "Carriage of passengers for hire". F%^$... So I decided to get new bearings/bolts and replace them. This...
  4. Tire Pressure Monitoring System, Stem Valves and Replacement Tires

    Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 2)
    I researched older threads on this subject and many of the older posts have an amazing amount of information but they raised some questions for me. I purchased a 2014 Kia Soul, Base model, MT, with less than 21,000 miles on it about two and a half months ago. So far I have been very satisfied...
  5. Tire pressure gauge.

    Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 1)
    Any recommendations? I prefer one that doesn't need batteries. Currently using one that probably isn't very accurate.
  6. Kia recommended or extreme tire pressure?

    Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 2)
    So-o-o-o - Tire pressure. I get about 75000 k out of a set of tires by keeping to the 33 lbs Kia recommends. Some folks say 40 to 45 lbs gives great handling to the Soul. I expect it also gives a harsh ride, and hammers over rocks and holes (not hammered on rock & roll). How correct is...
  7. TPMS Light

    Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 1)
    Can someone tell me if there is a difference when the TPMS light comes on, as opposed to the indicator symbol ( the little tire with the ! in the middle ) ? Today for the first time the actual letters TPMS lit up. Please, I hope this is nothing serious. Thanks for any help !

  9. 2013 Soul-door open and tire pressure light stays on

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    A few days ago my turn signals quit working so I checked the fuse and found no issue but after I reinstalled the fuse they started working again. My tire pressure indicator light came on and is still on. Yesterday my door open indicator light came on and the dome light and headlights won't turn...
  10. Upgrading our 4u with tire pressure monitoring system:tpms.

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 1)
    We recently moved from Quebec to Florida, and one of the Import DOT requirements is have our Soul 4U equipped with a TPMS tire monitoring system. I was able to see that the right hand dash monitor does have the tire emblem with the ! mark,but it does not lite up, so not certain if this...
  11. Don't Forget To Check That Air Pressure

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    The temperatures will be changing fast over the next few weeks, and tire pressure changes with air pressure. And don't forget the spare, if you have one. Also, if you're using winter tires, Kia recommends increasing the tire pressure by 4 psi for winter tires. On a related note, I picked up...
  12. Tire pressure monitoring system questions.

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Do all trim levels have a tire pressure monitoring system?I have a Soul Plus.If my vehicle has one,is there a way to read tire pressures from the OE wheel sensors?I don't mind using an aftermarket system,as long as I can keep the Soul's system intact and working as intended.

  15. Tire Pressure Light

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    My tire pressure light came on this am on the way to work. I know the tires have nitro. so do I just wait to see if it adjusts itself? Or go to the dealership and have them check it? Never had "nitro" in my tires before. I have a 2015.:confused-new::
  16. Used Tire pressure sensors

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Has anyone bought and installed used sensors? I'm looking for some for my winter tires, not a nessecity, I drove last year without them, the TPMS light just stayed on all winter! I can get them used for about $20 each but I dont want to get surprised with programming charges or other things that...
  17. I can't take the pressure...

    Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 1)
    So...we pay all this attention to the tires we put on our cars. How many of use are mindful of the air pressure gauge we use to check air pressure? My accu-gauge that I have used religiously for over 10 years has developed a problem. It is covered by a lifetime warranty so all I have to do is...
  18. Quick Question about Tire Pressure

    Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 1)
    So correct me if I'm wrong, but after driving around town, tire pressure increases right? PV=nRT or something like that. Increase temperature from friction driving around town leads to increase pressure. I have to make a long trip so I decided to check my tire pressure on my way home from...
  19. Wow check your tire pressure when buying new!

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I saw somewhere here probably on a sticky that the Soul ships with high tire pressures. My only complaint since now 800 miles new is it was a little jumpy when I hit rough spots in the road. Checked my pressures just now ..... all four @ 50psi..... great for evenness not so much for ride and...
  20. Low Pressure light?

    Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 1)
    So, my low pressure light has been on for a few days and I'm a bit worried. It came on Thursday night, as i was leaving work. It wasn't on earlier that day, but after it sat out in the parking lot for 8 hours it was all of a sudden illuminated when I cranked it up that night. I've been doing...
