    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Well, Back in November, I had my Sway bar links, Passenger side Control arm and ball joint, and all the pads and rotors done on my car. The Brakes have had to be REDID, and now the Control Arm and Ball joint had to be redone as well. Lesson Learned, NEVER let a used car lot do the work on...

  3. No sound in the front

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    Soul1 UK base model - 6-speaker audio. When I move the fade to the fronts, I realise there is no sound from the dash tweeters, and a very faint tinny sound from the woofers in the doors. The rear door speakers work fine and supply all the sound. [No subwoofer fitted, or centre speaker at base...

  8. 2019 KIA SOUL Phone Ringer Sound (From Android) Music Only

    New Member Introductions
    When a phone call comes in, Phone Ringer plays a "musical tune" that is not changeable. I have tried to make the change to something else (possibly a normal "ringing sound") and have not been able to do so. Is the "Musical Ringer Sound" locked in the factory software and cannot be changed? HELP!

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I have 2012 Kia Soul with automatic transmission that has 114k on it. When I start moving from full stop, I'm hearing a little click sound from somewhere. I have noticed this more often when I release the accelerator than when I press it. Once it reaches 40 mph, no more click sound. Has anyone...

    Bought a 2010 Soul! About a month later, the left side speakers stopped working. Asked around, was told it was the amp. It was not the amp. Other advice is check the radio. I see there was a speaker wiring recall on some of these; I checked the local dealer and they said the recall work was...

  13. Box of rocks sound from engine.

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hi all. I'm wondering what am I hearing now since my car turned 120k miles. I thought that it was a bearing in alternator. I replaced it ($5). It was a bad bearing but that noise was not it. It's really weird. I have used the stethoscope on all the accessories on the engine and water pump...
  14. Concerning corrupted UVO systems in KIA vehicles

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Problem: Basically, the issue was the UVO system stopped outputting sound. The common thought to this is the system believes a phone call is coming through so it has the speaker muted. This issue persists after unplugging the battery, resetting the system, checking the fuses, removing bluetooth...

    ICE & Communication (Gen 2)
    Hey all - lurking poster here. :-/ Yesterday when I got into the car the audio went intermittent. At first I could get it to come back by increasing or decreasing volume. Or change a setting. Seemed to be sensitive to any changes I made. After my errand I searched on-line for hints what to...

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I have about 33K miles on my Soul+. I now hear a grinding sound as the car slows just before stopping. For example, in normal driving, going from say 35 MPH to a stop at a comfortable normal pace, at about 5 MPG until the stop, I hear a grinding sound from both front wheels. When I use a...
  20. Question: Whining sound at high gear?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Hi, I drive the 2015 manual. I have noticed that if I am doing about 35mph and feel like I can shift to 6th gear, when I do I hear whining sound from the transmission while maintaining speed. I hear it at that speed the easiest because the road noise is not to great to cover it. Does anyone of...
