    Hi there, Kia Optima Phev 2018. A few days ago when I turned on the vehicle the Harmon Kardon sound system did not play any sounds what so ever. The Kia dealer in Denmark has spent two hours trying to diagnose the problem, but no luck so far. Everything on the multifunction display is working...

    Hi guys, This is my post as I’ve just purchased a 2012 Kia Optima3 from a local dealer, I’ve done some googling and I’m unsure of the difference between a normal optima and the 3 but oh well. My main question is how I go about updating the actual software/Nav, the dealership told me that it...

  6. Engine and Technical Discussion
    Just received a letter from KIA that detailed a 'Product Improvement Campaign' to update the 'Knock Sensor Detection System' (KSDS) software on my 2.4L GDI engine. This update is supposed to extend the warranty on my engine to 'lifetime' in case of a rod bearing wear failure...Anybody have any...

    I've seen a bunch of threads about how annoying it is to have to click on the "I Agree" button every time you start the car on a 2014 with navi. And none of them have an answer on how to fix it. Well... a software update fixes it. I reluctantly dropped the $149 to do the software/map update...

    I have a 2016 kia optima and haven't updated the uvo software yet. Kia's video on youtube says that after downloading the new software onto the sd card it can take up to 40 minutes for the vehicle to update the infotainment system once the initiate the update with the updated sd card. I doubt...

    Hello. I have '13 Optima brought from US. I'm from Poland. Is there any possibility to upload new software by myself? Kia Poland officially is saying that it is impossible. Is there possibility to change mils into kilometers? I read on forum that not but I don't belive it. Kia is also saying...
  10. Hybrids
    I finally got Android 6.0.1 for my cell phone. I went to sync with the 2012 KOH and was hoping a certain issue would be resolved. No joy! The issue is that it won't download my contacts to the car's head unit. Without that, I can't ever hope to dial via name and I have to initiate that via the...

    The 2016 Optima's DO NOT currently support Apply Carplay at this time, despite being advertised as such by KIA. I spoke with the dealer and they indicated that the deal should be settled about mid-2016, then it should become available. Does anyone know if this will be accomplished via software...

    I see there is an update to the navigation software available, has anyone updated? And if so, is it worth the $189? (for 2015 Optima).
  13. The Service Center
    I went in for a oil change and there was a software update for the lane assist. Not sure what the update did. If anyone knows please enlighten me.

    Anyone have an idea if KIA will do firmware updates for the head unit separate from the Navigation update?
  15. Hybrids
    Hi All. Just bought a 2014 "new" EX with 6k miles on it, dealer demo car. My first questions: any way to increase the airflow from the 'cooled' seats? I can barely tell when the system is on. Also-how can I verify if the car's software is up to date? Went into the UVO screen and got the...
  16. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I took my 2014 SXL Turbo to the dealership yesterday for it's 7500 mile service. It turns out there is a software update related to the electronic steering. My apologies if this has already been reported on the blog, but I had no idea and was never notified by Kia.
  17. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    hey guys :) so i've been having some serious issues with my remote starter... I've had it installed and it was all working fine, but once in a while, it would reset my odometer, clock and radio. I've talked to the shop and they've told me to updated the software, so i've udpated it to the newest...

    Hey all, not looking for a map update. I'm wondering about the latest software version. I checked Kiatech, but couldn't find a version #. I'm looking for the latest software/firmware version for a 2012 Optima Hybrid with the NAV. I'm trying to troubleshoot a Bluetooth/Contacts syncing issue. Thanks!
