Here’s What Could Be Making Your Kia Beep
Check Your Infotainment Center
While it’s not too often that a Kia infotainment center is the cause of the beeping in your vehicle it is a possibility that we like to check first. Occasionally a Kia vehicle’s Bluetooth® system will make a beeping noise when trying to connect to your smartphone. To rule this out, completely disconnect your phone’s Bluetooth from the vehicle and wait a few minutes to allow the system to reset itself before reconnecting. The beeping should stop if this was the culprit.
Check Your Seat Belts
An unbuckled seat belt is an obvious cause of beeping in your Kia Soul, but maybe you’ve put something extremely heavy on your front seat and didn’t think about it triggering the seat belt warning. Double-check that your belt is buckled along with the front passenger’s seat belt when necessary.
Check for an Open Hood or Door
Kia vehicles like to warn us when we’ve accidentally left a door or our hood open. Double-check that the vehicle’s hood is fully latched and that all the doors are properly closed to see if this is triggering the beeping noise.
Keyless Entry System
Does your vehicle have a keyless entry system? Some systems will warn you if your key fob is within a certain vicinity when your car is still running. If you have your fob in your pocket and run back inside the house while your car is running it may start beeping at you.
