  2. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Annoying problem with key fob... If I walk near my car when I have unlocked the car and I have the key fob in my pocket, the car automatically locks all doors... if the car is unlocked and I don't have they key fob with me, the car stays unlocked... the problem usually happens if I am carrying 2...
  3. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    2015 EX, noticed this morning that my interior lights were not turning on when any of the doors open, overhead switch is in the middle position, I believe that is 'Auto'. Lights work if I manually engage them... Any thoughts on this problem? Not sure if this is just a coincidence but I just had...
  4. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    My courtesy lights inside used to go on when my key fob opened the door or the door was opened so i can see at night, for some reason they don"t come on any more, any suggestions, they used to go on as soon as I walked close to the vehicle from sensing my Key Fob. I have the center above...

    Hi Yall So the other day, was pondering about the honk sound every time we lock our doors with the FOB key on our LX. I know that the other higher trim models (EX/SX-L) have that luxury sounding "cheerping" sound every time they unlock/lock doors. Is there an OEM part to change the sounder...
  6. The Service Center
    Weird problem I am hoping to get some ideas about while I am at work today. When I parked my car, I hit the lock button on my keyfob; the car locked and the mirrors started to fold in, then stopped, and reversed. That was weird, so I hit lock again... nothing, just silence. So I hit unlock...

    I have K5 badges on the hood/trunk/steering wheel/shift knob/hubs. I took off all the lettering on the trunk. I did not want to put K5 letters on the trunk because the badge is already 2 spots back there didn't seem right...
  9. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    So I was cleaning my car, and noticed how the door fender dont really line up with the rocker panel.. Is this normal? does the rocker panel stick out a bit more than the door and the fender? The only part that lines up well is the part of the fender meets the mud guards

    anyone had an issue like this other than me, since i have gotten my car back, either when i use the key fob to lock the door or use the button on the handle, the lights dont flash and it makes no sound, but when unlocking this function works fine.
  11. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I tried locking the doors with the keyfob and the black button on the door handle but no go. I then thought later that day, what if I just locked the door from the inside before I shut it...will that work? I like warming the car up on cold days to get the windshield cleared before I journey...

    Purchased my car about a month and a half ago, about a week later received an email saying their doors were closing..... for good!!! Kia of Stevens Creek near San Jose, CA......SUCKS!!!!!
  13. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    After having an Altima for 4 years I thought the Optima was the same but after this weekend I am not so sure. If I depress the black button on the door handle once I am pretty sure it locks all the doors and they stay locked. What about the keyfob. I just realized when using the keyfob to...

  17. Engine and Technical Discussion
    So I've had my optima now for about 5 months and so far this has happened to me 3 times but thats 3 times too many in my book. I get to where I need to go put my car in park and try to lock it but on the display screen it says that its not in park. I've tried reversing out of the spot driving...

  19. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    So I am sure there are plenty of you out there that go to make a quick trip to the store and when you arrive you think "Man I just need to go in real quick to grab something and ill be right back. Wish I could leave my car here running to keep it cool (or warm)." However you don't want to leave...

    So I just wanted to post some pics of the speakers I put in and the mood lights. I had to drill new holes to mount the speakers and drill a hole for the speaker wire to come through also, wasn't a big deal just a heads up to anyone installing new doors speakers, you might have to drill a few...
