  1. New Member Introductions
    Had the car for a year, been like this since we got it. Basically they all do different things. For example, volume down turns on Bluetooth voice control, track skip up is volume down, volume up is mute, etc. Done a little bit of searching and sounds like its just wiring issue. I've seen little...

    Hello all I am in the process of the following as I have been wanting to put a system in this car since day one. That being said the staging in this car is phenomenal from factory. I am pretty big on SQ and even in my base model with he speaker placement it is very good. Anyways here is what I...
  3. Entertainment: Audio, Navigation, and Electronics
    I have a 2015 LX and recently my steering wheel controls have been acting up. I will try turning the volume up and it will engage the voice controls, I will try changing stations and it will bring up my call history. It only does it for a little while but it is annoying none the less. It...

    When will the Optima drop the AC/Heat controls being part of the Infotainment system?I prefer the dials and temp indicators in the HVAC unit like on my Sonata.Also, MyHyundai app and BlueLink provide Remote Start.It appears Kia only provides on K900...not even on new Stinger yet (without 2nd...
  5. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    anyone else notice on their 2016 optima that when you set the heat and blower to high or low for that matter, and set it to the floor, its still blowing heat out of the defrost vents on the windshield? with barely anything coming out of the lower vents?
  6. Interior and Exterior Modifications
    Does anyone know which color wire coming out of the door controls the dome light coming on when the door opens? I have a 2016 if that matters. ---------- Post added 11-21-2016 at 12:26 AM ---------- Previous post was 11-20-2016 at 03:25 PM ---------- I guess it would help to say I installed...
  7. Entertainment: Audio, Navigation, and Electronics
    Hello all, I have an Optima that came from factory navigation and infinity audio. I believe this makes it hard to upgrade the head unit since the HVAC controls are integrated. I was just curious if I can take the HVAC screen from the first image i've linked below and insert it into my factory...
  8. Engine and Technical Discussion
    I recently replaced did the fix for the "clunk" sound when turning the steering wheel from left to right. See below forum if curious. http://www.optimaforums.com/forum/6-optima-engine-technical-discussion/121098-pop-noise-coming-steering-column-left-right.html In my enthusiasm to get the...

  12. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I always use the recirculate air button to keep outside air outside. However, it seems like everytime i get in the car the recirculate is off again. Is there any way to make it default to ON? Thanks
  13. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    As of this morning, I cannot lock/unlock/open trunk w/ the Kia key fob remote. Was working till today. Any idea what causes this? I tried the 2nd remote and same thing - car does not recognize it. The car does see the remote to run, so that's good. Last night I hit some ice and had to get the...

    Just wondering if anyone is using their HomeLink to turn on lights as you get home. I've looked and looked and haven't been able to find the required switches/receivers to do this. We live out in the sticks and it would be nice to drive up and hit a button to turn on the porch lights and flood...

    I just noticed this today, and have tried to fix it every way I know how, including removing the negative battery cable for several minutes. I have no volume control to my radio. The push buttons on the UNAVI interface do nothing, and NONE of my steering wheel controls (volume, up/down, mode)...

    I'm sure this is old news...but i got bored today and finally got my phone to be controlled by the steering wheel controls. Bluetooth was cool...but having to control the music on the phone defeated the purpose of hands free. It's nice being completely hands free now and to use the wheel...
  18. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Is it just me or does anyone else think the audio controls and the cruise buttons should swap places? Ive never owned a vehicle where the audio controls are on the left they have always been on the right. 4 months with this car and I still cant memorize the two.
  19. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I just felt compelled to commend Kia on their logical layout of the steering wheel controls (volume, cruise control, hands-free, etc.). It's something you don't think about much, or I didn't anyway, until you get a vehicle where the controls make NO SENSE. I came from a 2004 Mazda3 and it had...
