    Hi guys. Has anyone ever experienced their brake pedal being hard to press when trying to start the car with the push to start button? It feels like when you turn off your car and press on the brake pedal a couple of times until the pedal becomes stiff. This has happened to me a few times and...

    Hey everyone I am thinking about getting an Optima I used to have a 2012 SX but recently had an Altima that was totaled in an accident but I have decided I miss the Optima and want to get an SX or SXL again for my next vehicle. I found a nice 2017 SX Certified...

    This is more of an idea than anything else, but I'd like to know if it's possible: I have an LX, so there is no fancy smart key or anything. Is it possible to replace my ignition key with a 3-switch setup? Basically, it would have two gated switches, one for Acc, and one for Ignition, and...

    I have 2014 Optima EX with Nav. I know you can upgrade the myUVO but does Kia push out any types of upgrades/new version of the Nav screen that could enhance the GUI interface, maybe for the music or any other part of the system (climate, etc etc)?

    I have. 16 optima ex loaded. After about 500 miles when starting and stopping the car I have to put my foot on the brake and press the push button twice. After the first push I get an error that says press start button again. Have you ever heard of this? Ed

    Drove to work today, couldn't shut off the car as the button was not doing anything. Luckily, KIA dealer within 1.5 miles so I just dropped it off there. Now I am thinking that I should have checked the fuses, is there a fuse for that function at all? Also, I hope they don't look under the hood...

    The cars that come with push button start. And the sensors in the door handles, that will unlock the car as you walk up with the Fob. Has anybody gone to the dealer and had it added. And if so how expensive is it. I contacted the Kia Dealer and they said they have never done it.

    Hey folks, this is my first new car in 13 years and I'm out touch on all the new technology. I'm an IT guy and installed car stereos for a few summers as a kid. But the newer tech is new to me. I was shocked when I found that I could unlock my Optima, get inside and push a button to turn it on...

    I just saw that there is a factory remote start module for the push button start Optimas. I also see that it gives me yet another fob to carry around and who wants that?? I started thinking on this.. (can you smell the smoke?) :D I can detect a momentary key press from the CAN bus for the...

  15. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    When the push button is engaged, there is a green light that comes on. My button stopped lighting up. Anyone know how to fix? A fuse? Light bulb?

    Alright guys, Hopefully someone can point me in the right direction. (Yes, I know I should have just bought an SXL with all the extra features that I want) My car is a Key-Start LX. I wan to install the factory push button start. If I bought the parts from kiapartsaccessories.com, would...
  17. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    First off, yes, I'm a noob. Secondly, yes, I searched. Now I don't why, but this forum doesn't really have a lot of the fun pointless threads I'm used to where people can just talk about their cars and discuss things just to pass the time. This is my stab at such a thread. Please don't bash...
  18. Hybrids
    Hi guys, traded in my 2011 optima LX for the Hybrid about a week ago. I have moved back to WV and realize the winters are extremely cold here. So, I have decided to install a remote start system. When I leave work early of a morning, I want to get into a warm car and not freeze my arse off...
  19. Engine and Technical Discussion
    Hi everyone. I posted this on my new introduction, but I thought I would repost here to get more opinions. I bought a fully loaded 2012 sx. When the engine is cooled off, I depress the brake and push the start and only get the on position. Another push of the button starts the car right up and...
  20. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    So, a few weeks ago I got in my car and pressed the button to start, and it acted like I wasn't putting my foot on the brake. So it would just switch from accessory to on, and then off, and then to accessory, and so on-- basically what would happen if you pressed the button without putting your...
