    Jumped in the car this morning and left the house, everything was fine. Stopped at 7-11 for coffee as usual and continued on to work. Several miles down the road I noticed that my location on the map was not updating, still showed me at 7-11. I have gone through every possible menu, even reset...

    Hello. My OEM amplifier just went out and I'd like to replace it myself as I'm over the mileage warranty and Kia wants to charge me $1600+. Can anyone tell me where exactly the amplifier is located? Also, would it be possible to replace the stock amplifier with a third-party one? Say Alpine? I...

    Just installed a the add w1 (thanks K5 store) if no one has tried you can use the open bolt whole next to the headlight to hang a bracket. Went cheap for now on hardware just to hang it. But all in all fairly easy, only took about 10 mins. (radiator hose is still loose under the can and can...
  8. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    So I attempted to change the mood lighting strips out with LEDs. A simple job, but I somehow blew a fuse anyway. Now I've read about the yellow fuse clip area but it just doesn't seem to be there on a 2015. I've checked every fuse and all seems fine. What could be the issue? What fuse on a 2015...
  9. Hybrids
    Hey y'all, Well, finally making time to install my under-carriage lights. My plan is to link it to proximity sensor so it turns on when I approach or unarm the car. Good idea or bad idea or is it even doable? If not, is there another fuse I can tap into rather than going direct to the...

    In previous vehicles, I have always connected the positive for my amp(s) directly to the battery. I have seen some of the installs on the forum, and some people are on the positive terminal--while others are on a post in the fuse box. Is there 1 right way? Is there a definite wrong way? I...

    Hi guys. So here's my problem. I have a 2013 hybrid. I have 2 12's in the trunk and now I'm considering to down size due to needing the trunk. I know more premium versions of our cars come with the infinity system and sounds WAY better than the stock no branded system. So what I was thing was...
  15. The Service Center
    Howdy! I know this is kind of a dumb question, but does anyone know the correct locations to jack up the front end (using a floor jack, then jackstands). I plan to do this for future oil changes instead of using ramps b/c my cheap-o Harbor Freight oil change ramps finally started cracking...

    If you have installed a set of component speakers, where did you put the crossover? In the door, in the trunk, under the seats......? Any pictures? In the door is most convenient but from the looks of it I don't think it will fit in there.
