  1. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    At first I thought I just had a problem with a burned out light in the trunk of my 2018 SXL Turbo, but now I'm not so sure. If I push the trunk-release button inside the car, the trunk opens normally, but the indicator on the dashboard doesn't show that the trunk is open. Also, when I approach...
  2. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Hi there , I have a 2013 Kia Optima EX. I’ve ran into an issue with my HID fog lights not working. The car itself had HIDs low beam and fogs professionally installed a 3 years back that have worked without issue for many years. The low beams still work fine but At one point I noticed both the...
  3. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I would like to provide power from dome light to windshield mounted radar detector (Uniden R7 with RJ-11 plug) and dash cam (Auto-Vox D6 Pro with micro USB plug). Radar detector runs off 12V, the cam needs 5V, 1A. My rear view mirror has no power. Is there a way to do this simply or due to...

    Just spotted these in an Instagram ad: https://www.ebay.com/itm/402122800796 Apparently there are some forany brands, but none in the "K5", or better still, the "Flying K" yet... Thoughts? Is this a good look, or just chintzy garbage?

    Ok, this has happened several times over the last few car trips I've been on... I make sure tire pressure is adequate (36 Psi), and hit the road. About 4-5 hours after starting out, the TPMS light comes on. Haven't hit anything, tire pressure hasn't dropped. Give it 20 minutes, light starts...

    So, I was unable to find anything like this on either this site, or the wider internet, so here goes... Over the years, and through several cars, I've always had a tough time aiming aftermarket or stock headlamps to get the best beam pattern, but not blind oncoming drivers... Lately, I've come...

    I have a 2011 Optima LX GDI. The drivers side tail light will not work, neither does the license plate light on the same side. The turn signal and brake light do work. We have changed all the bulbs, checked the fuses and mechanic checked the wiring. He concluded that it was the smart junction...

    Hi all, I am just about ready to replace my halogen tail light assembly with a complete assembly replacement. I see that K5 sell the hybrid tail lights, whilst ExLed sell a set with dotted/chrome lens indicators. Does anyone here have a set installed with pictures? Which ones would people...

    Went out to the 2017 Kia Optima Hybrid in my driveway this afternoon and went to start it up and after pushing the start button and the system self check a "STOP VEHICLE AND CHECK BRAKES" warning appeared in the middle of the digital display. Now for the fun part... The car was driven earlier...
  10. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    My auto headlights are randomly turning on and off they will turn off while driving on a pitch black road. By just tapping the end of the stalk corrects the problem. Doing a part search several online retailers offer just the headlight switch others show the headlight and wiper as 1 assembly not...

    Hey guys, I went last Wednesday to the Kia dealership to have my ECU updated on my Optima 2013. This evening when I try to go out for a drive. It won't start. I press the Push to Start Button, but all I see are the lights turning on and off, and I hear repetitive "Clicks". I also see that my...

    Hey guys, I know I probably could go to the sportage forum or kia forum to post this there, but I trust the people here in regards to good advice and proper wiring. On my sportage i dont have fog lights at all, however, ebay sells a set for 148 and they are made for the lx ex non fog light...
  13. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Does anyone here know *officially* approximately how much fuel is (supposed to be) remaining once the low fuel light/warning comes on? I ask because IMHO I think Kia programmed it to be a bit conservative as to how much fuel is remaining once the warning appears--in my case, the low fuel light...

    Hi Guys, My driver side bulb is out and I'm trying to get it replaced. The housing cover is stuck and won't open. I've unscrewed the White reservoir and put it to the side but for the life of me I can't open the cover. I've read somewhere that there is a screw somewhere underneath but can't...

    I have a 2013 Optima EX. I had to replace the little flexible coupling between the power steering motor and gearbox. Replacement went fine and took just over an hour. A couple days later I noticed that the ESC light was on constantly. I did forget to connect the brake light switch after the...

Mine is also fused (lower portion, both sides, after 3 years) , i installed led roof and led trunk spoiler and not sure if i messed up...

    2013 KIA Optima. Installed low beam HID lights. Now the ESC warning indicator light goes ON when the low beams are on. Should I worry? When headlights are OFF no warning light. Thank you for any advice.
