  4. Random no battery power

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    3 times in the past month I've come to my car not responding to my key fob or starting. It seems like the battery is dead and after tinkering with it (turning lights on and off, opening and shutting doors, attempting to turn engine on) it will randomly show life and the cab lights will turn on...

    Hello, I'm a new Soul owner, recently acquired a 2012 Kia Soul. Have had it for a couple weeks without issue. Was running errands today and left a store and went back to the Soul and turned the key and nothing happened. No click, no crank, nothing. The lights came on on the dash as normal...
  6. 2011 Soul Engine Cuts off at Random

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hello all, I have a 2011 Soul with ~62,000 miles on it. It's an automatic and has a push button start. Yesterday, I was stopped in traffic and when I took my foot of the brake to go the engine just died. All power was still on, however, and there were no indicator lights. I tried several times...
  7. OK checked out a 2014 Soul today - random thoughts

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    OK, ran by my Kia dealer to get my fuel rebate and some oil filters while I was there - a side note, the filters apparently *do not* come with the washers. You have to pay for them additional, and they are taped to the top of the box. So if anyone is getting them included, their dealer must be...

Hey all, I'm kicking around making my own "USB Satellite Radio" out of my music collection, which is fairly extensive. I plan on organizing the tracks by genre - rock, big band, americana, etc - and I plan on...

  10. Random Horn Problem?

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    So, first, yes I know I'm weird, my family tells me so. Now that that's out of the way.... Often times for no apparent reason - while driving down the road - if no one is around, I'll just honk the horn. I don't know why - I just do. Sometimes I even honk the beat of the tunes I'm listening...
  11. A few random electrical gremlins, any ideas?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Two odd random happenings happen in the soul and I was wondering if you folks could shed some light. 1) The lit speakers when switched to 'on' not 'music' will sometimes cut out. Both sides at the same time. Is this a known issue? Something I shouldn't have issue having the dealer fix? 2)...
