  1. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I inherited my son's 2015 Kia Optima. I have the 2 remote keys, but I don't have the key code. I assume the key code will make replacement keys easier if (heaven forbid) that's ever necessary. Is there a way for me to get the code? Can a Kia dealer access the code for me from the remote key...

    Does anyone have a current navigation update discount coupon code for mapnsoft.com? I've tried to search on-line, but it seemed to send me in circles and the codes that I did find were rejected. Thanks!

    I have a 2013 Optima EX. I had to replace the little flexible coupling between the power steering motor and gearbox. Replacement went fine and took just over an hour. A couple days later I noticed that the ESC light was on constantly. I did forget to connect the brake light switch after the...

    I have a 2012 optima ex 2.4. The check engine light came on with about 94,000 miles. Shows code P0444 which is purge control valve. I replaced the valve and the code returned within a few days. My first thought is to try another valve just to make sure the new one wasn’t defective. What do I...

    Going to be replacing my 3 year old battery today, 2015 Optima EX 2.4L, is there a 'radio code' I'll have to know to get the radio to work again after the replacement? If so, where can I find it? I checked the KIA Owners website where I have my car registered, didn't see it there... My Honda...

    Hello friends, My very recently out of warranty 2012 Optima SX started throwing up an Airbag CEL about a month ago.

    My 2012 Optima SX (95K miles) won't start. It only goes to ACC mode, it's got a brand new battery, and the override trick for the brake lamp issue doesn't work either. The code we get is P1690 for SMARTRA. Has anyone had experience with this code? I'm really hoping I don't have to get my car...
