    Anyone else have issues with their USB not working? Plug my phone in and it tries to charge and then throws an error and wont charge or play through it.
  2. The Service Center
    I have a 2011 Optima 2.4L and need the factory service manual. Is this possible to get without paying the ridiculous fee that Kia wants you to pay to access thier site.

    Outside of the Telsa style android nav unit debacle, is there any options for me to replace my factory nav unit for my 2011 SX that would give me android auto capability or self contained android for maps, waze, Spotify, etc. I have not really seen anything that would fit. would love to find...
  4. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Hey all, Have a question and have been googling research but wanted to get some thoughts from fellow Kia owners (most threads aren't general). My question, I have a '16 SX at 16,500 miles. I've been going to the dealership for my regularly scheduled factory maintenance to date and recently...

    Recently used the built in Qi charge mat in my 2016 SXL with my iPhone X. The iPhone is fully compatible with the Qi charging standard supported by the built in charge mat. Had the phone on charge for most of the 2.5 hour trip. When I took it off the charger, it was so hot that the phone itself...

    Has anyone successfully installed factory LED tail lights on their non-LED equipped 2016/17/18 Optima yet?
  7. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    Yep. 20' SR Rigid just got mounted up. It's their new hyperspot with the driving pattern on the outsides. The '16 with the pano roof actually as a perfect channel to run wires. More on the install later...bed time...yes, I know it's 8:45PM :) It goes well with the setup I?m running. Which...

  9. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    New here. I tried searching for my answer but never really found the issue I am asking about. I have noticed that when I first turn on my headlights (factory HID's) they a nice white color and very bright. This lasts about 30-60 seconds. As they continue to warm-up the color fades towards a...

    I have the FSM for my beloved Nissan. The most useful instance was when I received my Tein SS coilovers, I was able to print the page showing the exploded view of the suspension and take it to the dealer to buy every nut, bolt and washer to fully build the coils prior to installing, without...

    I kinda posted about this in my intro thread because i couldn't post here yet. I just bought my 2013 SXL but my wheels aren't chrome. They are this cool "charcoal" color. I already curbed one of the wheels (so mad at myself) So now im looking to get the wheel fixed. But i dont know if this is a...

    2015 Optima EX with 16,000 miles. Yesterday I was listening to my radio and all was good but today I get no sound at all from any mode including Bluetooth and speech. I checked all fuses and they are all good. I looked online and see that this is apparently a pretty coming issue with our...

    I spent a while searching here and through the Google with no luck. So I figured I would just ask. I have a 2012 with Infinity and Nav, If I tracked down a factory 2015 head unit with all the same stuff would it connect? Or would it be better just to fight through the pain of the aftermarket...
  16. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I have a 2013 SXL. The rim is bent and created a slow leak in the tire. The dealership told me it would be $700 to replace it, but I know there must be a cheaper alternative. I have found some online, but they all seem to be refurbished and do not have the TPMS. I don't need it to be brand new...

    So I have a 2015 Optima with the UVO system. The stereo system is rather lacking, but I want to upgrade speakers and add a subwoofer possibly while keeping the factory head unit with the UVO system as I have a back up camera and everything with it as well. I have searched these forums and...
  18. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    Just got done putting on the factory mudflaps. Took about 30 minutes. Definitely need a right angle drive to get to the screws for the rear unless you remove the wheel. The fronts are easier as you can turn the wheel left and right to access the two mounting points. You turn it one direction to...

    Searched and no joy... I though they looked a dim to be considered a DRL.. then a friend came over who also just bought a 2013 SXL as well. Side by side our DRL's are indeed dimmer then hers. Our car has 42,000 hers 27,000... Talked to carmax (where we bought it) and they said either they...
