  1. Stereo defaults? Read thread..

    ICE & Communication (Gen 2)
    Hey all So, bought a used 2014 Soul EX in green. It has the base unit for stereo (not the NAV version) and I have some gripes about it. If I'm playing audio through bluetooth, and I turn the car off, then back on -- instead of staying on bluetooth and trying to reconnect, it defaults to...
  2. Radio/Stereo Head Unit Replacement?

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 2)
    In my 2014 Soul Plus, I have just the base Stereo system and I am looking into upgrading. I would really like to upgrade to the OEM Touch Screen system that the higher end Souls have, but I am not sure if this is even possible. I guess my question is can I actually do this and will it work...
  3. Engine restart without stereo reset?

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 2)
    Hello everyone, I've got a 2016, base model, manual Soul. I do my best to not let the engine idle for extended periods but I also frequently listen to music through the Bluetooth interface. Obviously, resetting the input after restarting the engine is an annoyance and I've been trying to...
  4. Double DIN dash kit options

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 2)
    It looks like there are two double-DIN dash kit options on the market for the Gen 2 Soul, from Metra and Scosche, and possibly a third that several companies whitelabel. The few pictures I've seen of an installed Metra kit on the Soul look, to be honest, pretty bad, with visible gaps from the...

  8. Stereo "upgrade"

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 2)
    Has anybody attempted to take a stereo from a higher model soul and out it into a lower model? I have a 2016 SX Sport (I'm in Canada) and the only thing I dislike is it has the small 4inch stereo screen. I have found someone selling a large touchscreen from a 2016. It is the one with navigation...

    ICE & Communication (Gen 2)
    My Stereo keeps switching from radio to USB music on its own I'll put it back on the radio and before one song it switches back to the USB music. It just started doing this. We've had very cold temps this last week, not sure if that is afecting it. Any ideas?

  12. 2017 stereo harness is different!

    ICE & Communication (Gen 2)
    I'm starting a complete new audio install on my 2017 Soul+. It looks like the wiring on the stereo is different this year. Everywhere I look it shows 2017 the same as the last few years but that is not the case. Has anyone seen this or have an idea of where to get the correct harness or wiring...

    Hello again! So, I'm planning to do a stereo overhaul and was having problems finding the answers to a few questions...There might be an all encompassing thread out there already that gives us all the harnesses required but it doesn't look to be sticky'd and if there isn't one maybe this could...
  16. 2012 Soul 4u -Radio doesn't broadcast bluetooth signal

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    So I just purchased my Kia Soul used. For some reason I cannot pair my iPhone to it. I have tried 7 different phone models. None of which can even see the "KIA MOTORS" appear when the stereo is in pairing mode. I've reset the radio, upgraded the firmware, etc. Nothing. I'm thinking about just...

    **Creating this one since Iphone is not involved, but may be similar to another thread. ** So this has happened twice. I have a cheap phone that attaches via Bluetooth - (not a smartphone) - and use USB drive for music. Twice a series of LOUD popping noises started happening while listening...

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Hello, I've searched through the forums and found a couple threads regarding this topic but none of them offered a fix, they're all about a year old so I'm hoping that someone might have more modern insight. I have a brand new, 2016 Kia Soul + with the 8" navigation stereo option. I paired my...
  19. Stereo upgrade advice

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    I have a 2013 + Soul that I just replaced the head unit and the 2 front door speakers in. I'm not very pleased with the sound thus far. I've messed around with the EQ settings on the stereo but I can't find a good balance. The bass is always too much and drowns everything else out and when I...
