    Trying to get my stock midpipe off to replace with the quickpower pipe I purchased off another member. One of the bolts, I assume must be stripped as it keeps spinning when I try to take off the nut. The others seemed to be irremovable, and just the nuts come off. The top of it is flat so I...

    The drivers side blind spot detection light in the mirror keeps lighting up on my 2015 Optima SX Turbo even when no cars are present. Is there a sensor or something that could be dirty that's causing this?

    Has anyone else had an issue with their climate control where the top gray bar that shows up when you make a change intermittently pops up all on its own without any changes being made?

The contacts are already in the system, but the past few days every time I get in the car I see the contact download start and hear the audio message go off. This happened last month as well....did it for a few days, then...

    I have seen older threads on this subject where people were in the same boat as me. I changed my interior lights to led. I was going good till I got to the last one, then I accidentally made a big boo boo and everything died. :cry: I was able to start the car only by sticking the key fob into...

    Unlike a brand name battery, it is a huge concern when my Optima won't shut off. Everything worked fine except the push button ignition switch. As the car also cannot be locked when running, it was a safety concern about vehicle theft. Of course this occurred in the evening when the dealership...

    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 have a new 2013 EX (Titanium, premium package, nice car!). I like the voice command system in UVO, basically, and AFAIK I need it on to use my phone handsfree, so I need to leave it on. But it keeps insisting that I be listening to something. When I start up the car it starts playing where it...

    Right now the Optima is being parked outside until i figure out what to do with my other car. I've been looking at car canopies to cover part of the driveway to keep the sun off the Sorento and Optima. Anyone have a car canopy that covers two cars? If so what can expect to pay?

    I don't know if it's just me, but quite often my sat radio cuts out while driving. There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to it either. The closest thing I can find is when I'm at a red light and the light turns green. It started off as one of those quirky things but now it's driving me...
