  1. 12 V Power Outlet (Cigg Lighter) doesnt work 2012 model.

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    USB port still works fine. Fuse is good. Is any of the fuses under the hood connected to that? Will that outlet just pull out to change or does the dash have to come apart? Thanks.

    Soul Accessories (Gen 2)
    I've always wondered about these and general never liked the look of them for my vehicle. But I kind of like the FormFit look... So I am wondering, do these actually help keep bugs off your windshield?

    ICE & Communication (Gen 1)

  10. UVO - Design Needs a lot of Work

    ICE & Communication (Gen 2)
    I really enjoy my Soul (2015 +) with the notable exception of the UVO. The need to depend on wifi, bluetooth, and a cable for different needs. Using the cable for the parking minder and diagnostics, bluetooth for contacts, wifi for loading apps. What a joke! The next time I buy a car, I will...
  11. 2012 Soul - manual hvac controls don't work

No lights at all on the panel , can't switch the front defrost on, though I think thats the mode it's stuck in. No temp control so it blows hot air. I made...
