  2. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Kia Optima 2014. The red lights which should illuminate the radio station which is playing is so dim it is not readable. Any chance this could be solved using "setup"? If not, how can one change the bulb or illumination? I have see Youtube videos on how to remove the radio (difficult and...

    Inherited a 2013 Optima and was greeted with an ‘Antenna Error’ message from the stereo display. FM,AM, and Sat are toast. CD and Bluetooth work fine. Repair guy at dealership said it would be around $350 just for the labor. Has anyone else had this issue? Thanks for your time and advice.

    Hello all, I am planning to install a new headunit this week and I was wondering if anyone has had any luck with retaining the factory camera. I am fairly confident that I can physically adapt the connection to RCA but I'm concerned about signal compatibility. I have a 2015 Optima LX with UVO...

    So I’m not very tech savvy in the car audio department so I apologize if I say anything wrong. Recently my car audio system (Kia optima 2015 SXL with infinity sound system) started to get quieter and has gotten worse in the last month. I bought the car it was fine about a year ago. 20 on the...

    Had the car for a year, been like this since we got it. Basically they all do different things. For example, volume down turns on Bluetooth voice control, track skip up is volume down, volume up is mute, etc. Done a little bit of searching and sounds like its just wiring issue. I've seen little...

    I'm considering purchasing a 2015 Optima SX that has what appears to be the base radio. I'd really like to have Android Auto in the car. I understand there was an update for the 2015 Optima that adds Android Auto. But I don't think that is for this base radio, right? It's for the nav-radio unit...
  10. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    We have a 2019 Optima when we initially done the setup on the radio we had the option to turn the radio off with the push button or when you open the door we chose to turn the radio off when we open the door since then we have changed our mind but can't find that option in the setup menu anymore...

    My stock radio on my 2017LX has a backup camera but no navigation. My other car is a 2014 Ford Flex Limited and has navigation but I never use it as I prefer the real-time traffic of Waze. I would like to upgrade my radio to android auto so I can use Waze in my Optima. Do you have a...

    I have a 2011 Kia Optima SX. For quite some time my Sirius xm was stuck on acquiring signal. I didn’t have any audio for Sirius yet AM/fM worked fine. I also wasn’t able to tune to any channels. I did have an active subscription but since I had this issue starting in May I decided to deactivate...

    Using xm radio, is there a way to save a favorite artist/band ? On my previous car with xm you could save several artists and when one was playing on another channel you would get a notice and could click on it to start playing, is that possible with the KIA ? thanks highway

    Our 2011 Hybrid has been trouble-free so far with just under 50K but the audio system went suddenly silent. No prior problems and notably, the screen still shows the presence of the sound. No just a signal but the actual volume registers visually. This suggests the problem is in one or other of...

    Hello - I just encountered a weird error that appears every couple of minutes on my radio touchscreen. The error reads "Battery Discharge Warning! Please use the system with engine running." Seems self-explanatory, except that I was driving to work as the error kept appearing. Obviously the...

    Hey guys, a few days ago my radio stopped working. I turned my car off and restarted it and the radio work for about 5 minutes before the screen went black and I cannot use any of the audio controls on the stereo itself or on my steering wheel. I have checked the many different fuses, even...

    I found a discussion of an earlier 2013, they talked about checking a yellow fuse, I have a yellow breaker in the fuse box under the steering wheel off to the left, the roster is not well marked. I clicked the breaker off and on again, don't know if there is a fuse in it or how to remove it...

    I've complained in the past about the audio quality coming from SiriusXM on my '18 SXL. All sources except for SiriusXM sound OK. Some channels are OK, others sound like a complete disaster which makes me think its more SXM than the radio. An example is "The Highway" channel 56. It is...
