Infotainment screen really hot?

Thu Aug 15, 2019 6:23 pm

Hi everyone I just bought a 2015 Soul EV+ that's basically new only had 545 miles when I got it. I've noticed that the infotainment screen can get very hot like to the point where it kind of hurts to touch the screen. I can't find any other mention of this happening so I'm wondering if this is normal or if I should take it in to have it checked out.

Take it in to get it checked out, that's not normal. My screen is a similar temperature to the rest of the dash.

Small update if anyone was wondering. Dealership service center had the car from Saturday to today and couldn't figure out what was wrong. Kia Engineers in California also couldn't pinpoint it and the service techs couldn't recreate the heat so I'm picking up the soul tonight and will try to find what variables are in play when it gets hot.

If anyone has heard of or dealt with an issue similar to this I'd love to hear about it.
