    2015 Optima EX, have a button next to my steering wheel warmer button, I assume that is for traction control, why would I turn that off? Seems like common sense you would want to have good traction, what am I missing?

    Hey everyone, I am in the process of possibly purchasing a 2015 Optima EX in great condition with just over 30K miles. The one issue that it has is that the mode button for the user settings is not working. It's the one on the steering wheel right next to the cruise control buttons that looks...

    I've seen a bunch of threads about how annoying it is to have to click on the "I Agree" button every time you start the car on a 2014 with navi. And none of them have an answer on how to fix it. Well... a software update fixes it. I reluctantly dropped the $149 to do the software/map update...
  7. Engine and Technical Discussion
    This is more of an idea than anything else, but I'd like to know if it's possible: I have an LX, so there is no fancy smart key or anything. Is it possible to replace my ignition key with a 3-switch setup? Basically, it would have two gated switches, one for Acc, and one for Ignition, and...

    I have. 16 optima ex loaded. After about 500 miles when starting and stopping the car I have to put my foot on the brake and press the push button twice. After the first push I get an error that says press start button again. Have you ever heard of this? Ed
  11. The Service Center
    I washed my optima today and it was about 25 degrees out. I used the unlock button on the door handle and it seems to have gotten stuck pushed in. It has been sitting in my heated garage for about 4 hours now and it is still pushed in. Is there a way to get to the back side of this so I can...
  12. The Service Center
    Does anybody know where to get/if it is possible to just buy the button for the heated steering wheel? I don't need the entire module just the button/circuitry behind it. Thanks

    Hey there, I noticed that the trunk button on my 2011 SX has come loose. It's the rubber button that one can press, to the right of the license plate, under that trunk lip, to pop the trunk. It's currently secured with duct tape as to not mess with the paint job (from dangling and blowing...

    The cars that come with push button start. And the sensors in the door handles, that will unlock the car as you walk up with the Fob. Has anybody gone to the dealer and had it added. And if so how expensive is it. I contacted the Kia Dealer and they said they have never done it.

    I have a 2014 Kia Optima Hybrid with the Uvo System and to the left of the head unit is a button that says Media. This button allows me to get to the section on the touchscreen to play music through my phone via Bluetooth. Cutting right to the chase, the media button is not working. It won't...

    Hello everyone. On our new to us 2014 EX with the UVO Infinity system without Nav, we have had some frustrating moments with the system so far. When I first start my car and hook my iPhone 6 up with the lightning cable, the phone starts playing fine like it should. If I hit the mode button to...

    My wife accidentally opened a soda that was ready to burst and just found out that some of that sweet goodness went into the crevice of the passenger side seat air condition button. It's hard to push when the weather is cool and ok to push when the weather is hot (I guess the sugary stuff is...

    Hey folks, this is my first new car in 13 years and I'm out touch on all the new technology. I'm an IT guy and installed car stereos for a few summers as a kid. But the newer tech is new to me. I was shocked when I found that I could unlock my Optima, get inside and push a button to turn it on...
