    Soul Accessories (Gen 2)
    I want to add remote start to the Soul and I just want the single button variety. The problem I am running into is that I like the 2-way feature so you get a notification that the car has started/running, however, most kits I have seen come with two remotes but only one of them is 2-way. Can...

    Soul Accessories (Gen 2)
    In the market for a 2017 Soul and Dealership told me that the price on the Kia website would be for an aftermarket unit that they would source out to a shop to install but it would be included on the warranty. Around $475 They also said they could do the OEM Kia remote start but it would run...
  10. Lock / unlock using the key in the driver door (not using remote)

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    2106 Soul ex - I can unlock all doors using the inside switch on the driver door. Using the key to lock the car, only the driver door locks. Some day I may think I've locked it, but i't's wide open. Why did Kia determine this to be a good use? To unlock, using the key, I can unlock only the...

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I found a lot of post on here about getting a spare key, I should be able to do that locally. What about the remote door unlock/lock alarm button? I only got one of those and one key. Where can we get them, or maybe I don't need a spare one.

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    So I went to the local Kia dealer and they pulled up the info on my Soul and it did come with keyless entry.
