  1. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I think this may have been discussed here before but if so, I couldn't find it. The issue is, when the sunroof is open, if you put the AC on recirc mode, after a few minutes, it automatically switches back to fresh air mode. This is described here in the Stinger forum...
  2. Interior and Exterior Modifications
    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...

    2015 EX, noticed this morning that my interior lights were not turning on when any of the doors open, overhead switch is in the middle position, I believe that is 'Auto'. Lights work if I manually engage them... Any thoughts on this problem? Not sure if this is just a coincidence but I just had...

    Thanks to K5OptimaStore for providing this for me. Had this installed for a few months already. So far I'm pretty happy with it. Comes in really handy for me as I'm always loading boxes into my trunk. Here it is in action. Will post a small guide pretty soon. Any questions just let me know...

    I have a 2015 Optima EX, when I leave the car and lock it, the mirrors close up. During the up coming winter , I would like the mirrors to stay open when I leave the car and lock it. Is there a way to do this? Reason I want to have this option is that ice and snow build up will not effect...

    Anyone black out or plasti dip the sides of their LED tail lights, where it's just blank red plastic with no lights? I was noticing the red reflectors under there are patterned in the tiger stripe of way, similar to the front amber reflectors. Because the front amber reflectors are spaced...

    So apparently I forgot how to car and while changing headlight bulbs I must have disconnected the hood latch cable. Theres a section where the cable has a ball tip that connects into a \/ type connector. Now I can't open the hood and I'm at a loss as to how to open it. I could bust out my SX...

  16. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    So the car just crossed 500 miles yesterday and the sunroof stopped opening as well. Tried the reset procedure and also holding it to manually open as well. The dealer couldn't get me an appointment until next Friday. Just glad it is stuck shut I guess. Anyone else have similar issues?
