    My brother has a 2015 Kia, turbo with a push button starter. His smart key said low battery, so he replaced the battery. It still shows low battery even with the new battery?? Any ideas?

    I have a 2015 Optima. Both low beams went out within a week of each other. I replaced them last night, but they are both out again today. The high beams work fine. Help please! Where do I begin to look other than fuses?

    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 sx optima and bought some LED bulbs from the K5 store recently. I went to go start the replacement of them but had issues removing the dust cover. Just to make sure that I wasn't turning it the wrong way, I tried both ways and still nothing. I was able to remove the high beam...

    Any help would be great. A few weeks back my low-beams became very dim, both at the same time. I have the HID headlights. I ordered new bulbs off Amazon, but after thinking about it, I don't think it's the bulbs that were bad since it happened to both at the exact same time. Any info on...

    I was thinking about replacing my 2015 Optima Lx with another one after the 5 years/60k miles bumper to bumper warranty runs out. I only drive it about 4K miles per year. It looks like a good move, assuming the trade-in is about $10K, which is about 50% of the original cost. On the...

    Hi guys, trying to replace the low beam bulbs on my 2014 optima LX, but what is the right bulb size? I remember seeing a discussion where people mentioned that there might be two different sizes for the 2014 lx. Is it a H11B? Any info is greatly appreciated!
