  1. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I inherited my son's 2015 Kia Optima. I have the 2 remote keys, but I don't have the key code. I assume the key code will make replacement keys easier if (heaven forbid) that's ever necessary. Is there a way for me to get the code? Can a Kia dealer access the code for me from the remote key...

    Hi, I got this 2017 Optima PHEV EX with Tech Pkg. Upon my check online, there are two types of factorial remote start module. D5F57-AC201 and D5F57-AC001 Both module is 'said' to be compatible with Optima PHEV. So did anybody really installed a remote start to a PHEV/Hybrid 4th gen Optima? I...

    Has anyone had a remote starter installed on their 2016-2018 Kia Optima LX Turbo Eco? I was thinking about having it done, but found out that there is no manufacturer version available for the LX Turbos. I called Kia Customer Service and asked about it. They stated that remote start is only...

    2019 Remote Start / UVO LINK APP FEE Thought it worth clarifying that the Remote Start, Climate Control, etc., on 2019's Require the UVO LINK app (link below) AND Those Features will require a UVO LINK Subscription AFTER the Complimentary ONE-YEAR Trial. 1-844-886-9411 UVO Sppt stated the...

    Does anyone know if adding an aftermarket remote starter will void any warranty on a CPO purchase? TX

  8. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    I recently purchased a brand new Optima and the dealer Owes me a OEM Remote start. My sales person called with an installation date and I thought all was good. Fast Forward few days, I called the service department today to see if they can make time during the install to look at a small...

    Hey all! Just looking for a Decently priced Remote Start for my 2014 Optima LX. I don't have Push to Start or any of that - and I cannot seem to find really any aftermarket options. I was contemplating Viper - but I'm just curious what the LOW END cost would be. I know what the high end...

    I have a 13 SXL and wondering if anyone has installed a cheaper remote start system on their vehicle? I am looking for something that will work from at least one hundred yards. Also, have you used your factory fob for these? Thanks in advance!

    When we picked up the car it didn't have the remote on it... Their excuse "We had to remove it from the car to certify it"... I can understand but a let down none the less since the Kia's is $600 plus.
  12. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I have a 2013 Kia Optima SXL that's push-to-start, of course. I was hoping someone may have information as to why my car won't crank via remote start. I have the 4X10 installed per the wiring diagram. I've checked it 10,000 times. I even have the Viper SmartStart VSM250 unit connected, and it...

    Hey All, I just bought and Audiovox 1-Way car starter for my wife's 13 Optima SX Turbo. I spent a good portion of the weekend installing it and everything works except the automatic starter. Trunk release works, as does lock and unlock with horn sound. I need to go back and triple check my...

    So I have been in contact with MyKey distributor based in Korea. I purchased the second version of the MyKey Pro unit, now called the MyKey Premium, this is the revised plug and play version.

  15. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    So we just bought a 2016 Optima SXL on Tuesday. It did not come with the factory remote start. Living in MN, and having had remote start, I have to have it! :rolleyes: Anyway, my '13 Ram has a feature where if it's under 41 degrees F, it will turn on the seats and steering wheel heat when you...

    Been seeing the Hyaundai Commercials on the Blue Link Remote find my car. Lock the doors and start my car. Is this something that is only on the newer cars. Or does anybody know how it works. If I have a 2016 Optima LX , how would this work on my car ?

    Hi, I'm a new Optima owner (just 1 month) and a new Forum member. We just today found out that the remote start is added after delivery at our Kia dealer. Had a new Forte before getting the Optima, and it came with a remote, so we thought it was odd that a car decked out like the SXL is...
  18. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    My car is a 2013 Kia Optima LX. The key and the remote are seperate. I tried buying a spare remote off ebay (U.S.), with the exact same numbers on the back and it didn't work (Its new) I tested the remote battery and its good. Do I need to go through the dealer? I only have one remot right now....
