i didn't see a sub for dumb questions but am wondering if the hatch is supposed to open with the key fob? all my other (non kia) cars have done so in the past but not my 2020 soul. it just unlocks when you hit the hatch button but it doesn't open. i asked the dealership and they said its not supposed to because someone could get to your car before you did and take something. i thought that was the weirdest reason, just trying to figure out if they just told me that so they didn't have to fix it lol. i've had it happen before once bmw told me all convertables leak hahahahahhaha.

No, it just unlocks it. There’s no motor or anything to open/close the hatch automatically.

I'm sure that an After Market shop could fab up something to do that for you, for a couple thousand $'s. Eh?
If they can make a whole car go up and down, they shouldn't have too much trouble with a hatch.

I bought my first Soul in 2012 and I've NEVER seen a self opening hatch on any Soul. Sometimes, it would be nice though.

Let us know, if you pull it off.

:cool:
