  1. 2014 Starts Randomly

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Hello all! just got a 2014 Soul from my grandfather but as of late it will not start consistently. We don't even hear it try to crank over but all of my lights, accessories, and windows work. We are not 100% sure if it is the starter, so I figured I would ask this lovely group of people...
  2. 2020 Kia Soul LX- Remote Start Upgrade

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 3)
    Hi guys, I just bought a new 2020 Kia Soul LX. It is upgraded to the automatic. I didn't need all the extra tech inside. The one thing that I really wanted was remote start. It is only $450 dollars to add it to a new car build, but my local dealer gave me $4,500 dollars off of msrp if I took a...

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    I get a message on the screen that says “ subscription updated? Pressed enter to continue”. What is this about? It doesn’t give me an option to close it out or disregard. It stays there until I press enter. I don’t know if it has to do with downloading my phone information but that usually says...
  6. Click no start

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    2010 Exclaim with 97,500 miles. Every so often I'd turn the key and hear one click but it wouldn't fire but turn key once or twice and it would fire up. Now I get the click and it takes several minutes of turning the key before it fires. I'm thinking it's the starter, right? The check engine...
  7. 2014 Kia Soul Base Model - Rough Idle, Intermittent Hard Start

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    I had some hard-starting issues with my 2014 Soul 1.6l with 60,000 miles. I replaced the battery and, because the hard starting only seemed to happen when the car was warm, I also replaced the coolant temperature sensor. This seemed to do the trick at first, but the hard-start problem has...

  18. Remote Start - OEM vs Aftermarket

    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...

    Hi, new Soul owner, and newish to the forum. We'd sold our minivan when our girls went away to school, but missed the elevated seating position so shopped around for a more economical vehicle with room for four and that commanding view of the road. Ultimately, it was rear-seat legroom that...
