    ICE & Communication (Gen 2)
    Hey all So, bought a used 2014 Soul EX in green. It has the base unit for stereo (not the NAV version) and I have some gripes about it. If I'm playing audio through bluetooth, and I turn the car off, then back on -- instead of staying on bluetooth and trying to reconnect, it defaults to...

  6. Knock Sensor code immediately following sound system improvements. Please read.

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 1)
    So after doing some research the two possible causes would be: Vibrations caused by the sound tripping the sensor - this is unlikely as I don't have *that* much in there, and the firewall provides a lot of dampening. Power draw from the speakers/amp is pulling too much from the cars battery...

  11. Want to add a spare tire & jack to your 2012 Soul? Read this

    Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 1)
    Like many other buyers of a 2012 Kia Soul, I was somewhat dismayed to learn there was no spare tire and jack included with the car--instead, there is a can of sealant and a (tiny) air compressor. I understand why Kia did this, and I also understand that the sealant/compressor can remedy a...
