  1. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    I have a 2017 sx turbo, the airbag light came on one day, we scanned it. gave us a code of B138200 saying the side airbag front passenger resistance is too high, we tried to delete the code but it just ends up staying on, is there any fix to this ? any suggestions will be appreciated
  2. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    Hi, I did something not super smart and had a paper sitting on the sliding cover to the wireless charging / USB / Cigarette Lighter bin on my 2016 SXL. When I opened and then closed the cover, the paper was gone - slipped behind the center console into the void. UNFORTUNATELY, the paper was my...

    We've found another solid deal, but time is super limited on this one! The Vantrue N2 Pro Dash Cam is packed with features including 1080P recording quality, front and cabin-facing cameras, infared nightvision, motion-activated parking mode, and more. Regularly priced at $199.99, it's marked...

    Have 2015 SXL. Yesterday morning, sitting in highway traffic jam for well over an hour. When finally got going again, immediately noticed absence of turbo. Have had that happen a few times on morning commute starts, and a simple engine stop and restart fixes it (like a software glitch). When I...

    Correct me if I am wrong but the Infinity dash drivers come with 4 wires. 2 to the mids and 2 to the tweeters. There are no crossovers on the drivers because i would assume the amp does that for you. So the signal coming to the driver is already at over 800hz. So there is no need to add bass...
  6. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    2013 Optima EX I’m not 100% sure yet but I’m thinking about getting an Owl dash camera. I have read: (1) Optima Forums’s threads here and here. (2) Dash Cam Talk’s thread on the Owl camera. I am aware of: (1) The Owl camera being pricy and newer to the field of dash cameras. (2) Dash cameras...

    Hi all, Having problems with my AC airflow. It started with the dash servo/clicking noises back in the fall. After trying the temp changes or vent direction changes I found the noise to be coming from when the airflow was moved from head to toe. So, I ordered the new actuator and put it in...
  8. The Detailing Corner
    I have a 2016 Optima SX, but the dash looks like it has white oxidation on it. Any tips for dash cleaning/detailing products?

  10. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    Noticed something odd yesterday. I filled up the gas tank, reset the trip/MPG counters, and immediately drove to the airport to pick someone up. Along the way, the average MPG showed as high as 36 MPG, dropping to 34 MPG when I finally parked at the airport (as shown in first pic). Then when...

    Just noticed this happening over the past week or so. Now it appears I'm no longer getting cold air, just cool air. It sounds like a compressed gas canister being filled. I've read in some places that it's a leak in the ac system, or it may need recharging, or it may be bad evaporator. Any help...

    sup guys,I have a 12 EX 2.4L with 98k miles and I'm starting to get some weird boiling/clicking noise from the dash area.It usually makes the noise when the car is fully warmed up and I've been driving for a while. But once the noise comes on, there is no stopping it.So when the noise comes on...
  13. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    My car is just over 3 years old and the car sat for 4 days and then tried to start it and the battery was dead. Was able to jump the car and after I turned it off and then restarted it the display showed a green horizontal line across the lcd screen. I thought that was odd so I turned the car...
  14. The Service Center
    This just started this morning when I tried to start my car. When I hit the start button, the trip computer display flashes on and off and the car doesn't start. Every time the screen flashes on, there is a clicking noise that sounds like it's coming from somewhere in the engine bay. Here's a...

    Has anyone used a dashcam to get out of a speeding ticket. Do any of the video's also show your speed.

    I sold my Optima last month and have a used ProClip Dashboard Mount (#854641) for sale. I used it with an iPhone mount that I moved to my new car, this was the best phone mount that I have ever had, and I have another for my new car and wife's. Anyway, looking to sell this one, no broken tabs...
