I have a Kia soul +, I can turn on my lights and drive somewhere and when I turn the vehicle off with them on, they turn off automatically. Its a good feature to have if you forget to turn it off when you get out of the car. As far as how to automatic lights go, I am not sure. I am still trying to figure that out.

You didn't mention the trim level of your Soul. I have a 2013 Base. I keep my light switch in the on position all the time. When I turn the engine off, leave the car, and press lock twice (the horn chirps), the headlights turn off. Even if I leave the car without locking, the lights will still turn off after a couple minutes. I'm assuming that the ! and possibly the + has true automatic headlights, where you can set them to turn on when the outside light reaches a certain low level. I don't know exactly how that works for Kia's. Other cars I've had with that feature have an automatic switch setting to activate that function, but your owner's manual should tell you.

My 2014 Kia Sorento has auto shot off lights but it wouldn't work
