    I started probing wires under the dash and I got lucky and found the reverse light wire in a plug on the far left side under the dash. It's a green wire in a plug containing many green wires. I will attach a photo for reference. It's the second wire from the left on top. I pulled it out a...
  2. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hi, I have a weird issue that is driving me crazy. Just had new "aftermarket" pads and rotors (from Autozone) installed in the front and right after, I get this strange snap type noise, only when the car is warm and has been driven for a bit to "heat up" brakes and when only going in reverse, I...
  3. Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Hey all, I’m still getting all set up in my new Soul. One thing I noticed that has been different than all other cars I’ve owned is the viewing angle of the reverse / backup camera. All of my other cars including my wife’s Nissan Rogue seem to have their backup cameras angled more toward the...

    This happens to me sometimes. I'll try shifting into reverse and it won't move past half-way, then I'll go back to neutral and try again and it will generally work. Am I just trying to shift too fast after the car starts up? It doesn't happen while actually driving (that I've noticed yet); just...

    first test drive was in an automatic which sold me on considering a Soul...wanted a standard so went shopping for a manual trans...found one, test rode it..liked it..lighter color would have been preferred but bought it. Went to pick it up, signed the papers, car waiting outside ready to just...

    I got this with the impression that they could actually do what they say and color match it. After numerous emails and phone calls i am out of luck. I have it posted on ebay for half of what it actually cost. But for my forum brothers and sisters i offer it to you for BEST OFFER + shipping...

    I was told that the reverse camera came with a beep sounds that escalate as the objects get closer. Mine does not beep. Is there a setting for enabling this function.

    Any one else had this issue?
  10. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Last night I was stopped at a light and unable to shift from neutral into any gear. After a minute+ of frustration the stick finally moved into 1st, but when hitting the gas the engine RPM would jump but the car would only move VERY slowly. This happened in any gear except reverse, where it...

    Hi, I'm having what may be a clutch issue with a new Soul, but before I venture to the dealership I need to get as much information as possible, and there is one more test I'd greatly appreciate if forum members could do and report back: Please compare your initial bite-point of your clutch in...

    I Have a fascination with LEDs and I am well on my way to replacing all incandescent bulbs on my Soul with LEDs. This time around I decided to throw in some CREE LED reverse lights. I had seen a thread a while ago talking about this issue and showing some great after pics of the lights...
  14. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    My brakes squeal when I back out of my driveway. It started shortlyafter I purchased the car. I thought it was just from sitting around too long. I don't drive to work everyday. I was going to wait until my first oil change to have the dealership look at it. Should I wait or just bring it in...
  15. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I had a bizarre incident last night. I was on a very steep hill with a stop light at the top of it. I have been trying to figure out how to use hill assist, so I tried something a little different while waiting for the light to turn green. I depressed the clutch pedal to the floor, put the gear...
  16. Aftermarket modifications (Gen 1)
    I was thinking of installing some extra lights in the rear bumper for reversing. I find it very dark backing in the driveway and thought maybe if there were lights lower to the ground it would help. I decided to change the bulbs to LED (MT-ED) had the numbers for which ones and we were at...

    Has anyone noticed that the reverse/backup lights aren't that great for using to lighten up the area behind you when you back up? I am thinking that it's a combination of several things: height, angle and size. We have two full size pickups and a jeep that don't seem to have this issue. Either...

    I picked up a rearview camera a year ago cheap at a auto parts store. I was saving it for when I got a new car. Just bought a soul and dug it out to see about installing it. SO basically I need to do is attach camera to license plate screws then you need to route wire in and splice into...

    I have a 2011 Soul, had it about 1 month, went out to back car out of driveway and had no reverse. All other gears seemed fine. Anyone esle had that problem? Planning to take it to dealer in morning. Thanks
  20. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I have a 2011+ M/T with only about 2,000 miles on it. When going into reverse, sometimes there is gear grinding. It doesn't happen all the time, but it does happen on a regular basis. Does anyone else have this problem? This isn't normal for a new car, is it? Years ago, I had a used '87...
