sensors

  1. Soul General Discussion (Gen 3)
    In the owners manual on page 4-81 or references parking sensors and even has diagrams involving the soul. In not aware of these as options on any trim level. Is this a future addition?
  2. How To / DIY (Gen 1)
    After reading about warning lights and code updates I wonder if Kia does updates when cars are in for service? Is that something I need to ask for? How do owners know what software/hardware needs to be updated and if it has been done? Warning lights have been signs of danger in the past but...
  3. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Ok, so I have replaced the uptake sensor for my 2010 3 times, and also changed out the other one....now my car code is saying code is permanent! Any help out there would be appreciated...I need to smog this car and get on with our life together.....Has anyone had to deal with this? On the third...
  4. 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...

    Greetings All, The daughter has a 2011 Soul+ with 28K miles. She was told by a mechanic that she needed new pads and rotors all the way around. While it's possible that either the front or rear pads "may" need replacement, it is almost impossible that she needs rotors. She is experiencing...
  6. Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 1)
    Usually I add air to the tires every month. If I can trust the tire air pressure sensor, maybe I can put air in the tires fewer times. Are all four tires monitored with the sensors? Are the sensors reliable? What are the pros and cons of doing this? Does anyone know if it a direct or...
  7. Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 1)
    Just wanted to share a helpful hint to those who are looking for a winter setup but don't want the cost/hassle of fitting/programming TPMS sensors to the wheels. At tirerack.com, using the 2007 Kia Rondo EX as your "purchased for" vehicle creates the same exact match of 16x7 wheels and...

    i dont see on the windows sticker anything about tpms sensors.. and honestly dont think the salesman mentioned it either.. i can tell by the valve stem it looks to have them, i have the 15" steel wheels. are tpms sensors standard equipment on the soul?
  9. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I haven't even had my car for a year and I have had to relpace 3 of my tps already. That is outragous because they are 180 a pop. Any one else having a problem?
  10. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Im upgrading from my 16 inch stock wheels to the 18 inch wheels, but not with the dealer, can I just use my tpms already with the 16's on the 18's or do they need replaced? Is there a way to reset them for 18's? If not just turn off the dumb light and how? Thanks, Im sure these are stupid...
  11. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    So my valve stem broke and kia don't sell just stems I had to shell out $74 for new sensors when the sensors are fine. All I needed was a $5 valve stem couldn't find them no where! What a joke.
  12. Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 1)
    Just wondering, if i get new 16 inch rims from discount tire if need to get new tpms sensors installed? They say everytime you get wheels/tires you need new ones. I'm a little confused. What i plan on doing is getting new rims, and swapping the stock tires from the stock rims to the new...
  13. Soul Accessories (Gen 1)
    The title pretty much says it all. I definitely plan on adding the bull bars to my SOUL over the summer, and am curious as to if they would interfere with the sensors on the front and back end of the car. Does anyone who has these installed know? Or anyone who doesn't have them installed but...
  14. Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 1)
    Just bought a 2010 4u SX in Canada. Dealer told me all soul have tpms sensors. When installing my winter wheels (no tpms sensor on these) I was expecting to get a message that the sensor can't read the pressure but I have no warning. Not I'm thinking the 2010 doesn't have that feature and it's...

    My car has the reversing camera and frankly i am not that impressed. I noticed the top line Souls now come with reversing sensors instead....and fit the camera to the slightly lower models. Anybody had experience of both?. How accurate are the reversing sensors at the sides in the rear pillar...
  17. Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    So the model I have has a reversing camera thingy and TBH I think it's little more than a gimmick.... I think its crap and I would have had the audible sensors if it were an option (it wasn't) So I have had a quote from Kia to fit them £300+ ..... seems high! My question for those that have...

  19. Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 1)
    Haven't had any luck finding out if the base soul (15" steel wheels) TPMS sensors will fit in the factory 18" alloys. Anybody know if there is any difference? I've seen that some TPMS sensors (other makes of cars) have different mounting angles between steel wheels sensors and alloy sensors.
