  1. The Service Center
    KIA TRS/Inhibitor Switch Replacement (Fix for OBD Code P0705 or missing gear display) I recently had a CEL on my 2011 Kia Optima and also weird behavior with the A/T (gear indicator on dash was blank and sometimes the A/T wouldn’t automatically shift all the way down to 1 at stops sometimes). I...
  2. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    So, over the weekend, while I changed brake pads, I also rotated the tires and changed the oil. When I reset the meters for both, instead of showing a countdown, it instead showed me "Not Use" in both fields. Why would it say this, and is there a way to fix it to show the countdown?
  3. 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...

    Has anyone found out how to display the climate control to another monitor or an iPad mini? Any clues on which wire to tap into for the climate display? I've read the older post but didn't find out anything definite. Would appreciate any ideas. Alpine makes a nice bezel that fits the iPad mini...
  5. Wheels, Tires and Suspension
    I am not sure what year they started adding the individual tire pressure to the information center but, I know my 2013 does not. Does anyone know of an aftermarket screen that can read the factory sensors? Preferably one that can plug directly into the 12v power adapter like this full kit...

    Going to try my best to utilize the OEM backup camera, mic and roof mounted GPS sensor. Just want to know if HVAC and Steering Wheel controls are CAN BUS.

    I've watched a few videos on BMWs with Brake Force Display (BFD) and here's a link to one of the videos: So the lights of your tail lights and the 3rd brake lights flash when the car is under heavy braking to let the drivers behind know that the car is coming to a sudden stop. Does anyone know...

    Sorry, this might be a dumb question, but what's the source of the traffic status displays on Nav UVO system display? Is that somehow feeding from Sirius Traffic?
  9. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Morning. I just had my tires rotated and I think the tire dudes were trying to be helpful and reset my "tire rotation alert". Somehow, my outside temperature display is now in Celsius instead of Fahrenheit. How do you change it back? I went to the settings for the display but, I didn't see...

    I would like to send the video from my phone to the video display on my 2013 Optima SXL. I have the full Nav package and I have a samsung Galaxy S5 for a phone. Anyone know if there is an adapter or a wireless adapter available to do this? I want to push the google maps to the screen.
  11. Engine and Technical Discussion
    The center display screen keeps rebooting. It has been like this a few days. Anyone else encounter this or know a fix? It cycles through a few screens, Kia logo, static, configure, and then black.... then reboots and does it over again.

    I know this has been discussed to death and I am still am not sure which is correct. But I am old school and believe in the hand calculation method. I can't believe, for the life of me, that when filling my tank on one occasion would actually be a gallon or two short or a gallon or two more than...

    I have a full load with GPS . When I am playing music or talking on hands free without my GPS I have no TIME display unless I press clock key , Is there any ways to have the time displayed with or without GPS ?
  15. Interior and Exterior Modifications
    Anybody have any idea what would get rid of scratches on the fascia around the temperature display and control panel. Surface scratches, nothing deep, but the you can tell because the coloring is a little different. Anybody have any good ideas for this? Thank you!
  16. Entertainment: Audio, Navigation, and Electronics
    So I'm generally a techie and I cannot for the life of me figure out how to add an image in the display screen. I looked through the entire manual and searched online but found nothing. I have the image on a USB and made sure the audio is turned off but when I click on display, it doesn't...

    When using the navigation feature, how is the radio and the climate controls displayed? Do they appear on the screen or do you need to switch to them to see, for example, what the temperature is set at? Likewise, if you are currently in the radio display, does the navigation just give you...

    Do you have the miles until empty, average mpg, trip a, b?.. What do you like to have on your display?
  19. Engine and Technical Discussion
    Hey all, I turned on my radio yesterday to discover an error message greeting me: "Application Error: Application Media App.exe Encountered a serious error and must shut down." Anyone familiar with this error or if there is a way to "reboot" the radio? I am going to take it into the...
