  2. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    My issue- On start up I had some shuttering ( rough start ) then after warm up car ran fine, gradually got worse and engine light showed up. Took it to the dealer as I only have 30,000 miles. 1st trip - was told too much oil, tech claimed to clear it all up. Day later its back 2nd trip-...
  3. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Rolling down the road and car stalls. When I try to restart it it’s a slow crank as if the batter is dead. Put a jump pack on it and it helped but started smoking by the Alt. or possibly the starter. Now I cannot for the life of me get it to even try to crank. I’m scared to go old school and...

    My optima says it can not detect key in car even though the key is in the car. The remote locks the car with no problem but it is asking me to hold key to starter to start it. Is this a fob battery issue does anyone know? Thank you

    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...

    Hi All, Ive had my optima since 2012 and never had any issues. They kept sending the recall mail about engine software update and finally decided to do it. The next day my car does not start.

    Hey guys, I went last Wednesday to the Kia dealership to have my ECU updated on my Optima 2013. This evening when I try to go out for a drive. It won't start. I press the Push to Start Button, but all I see are the lights turning on and off, and I hear repetitive "Clicks". I also see that my...

    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...

    When I started my car yesterday morning,everything was fine. But in the afternoon when I started the car again, the nav screen stayed black. Turned the car off and then on, nothing. So I drove off and the screen turned on after about a minute. Seemed like a long reboot. Any thoughts?

    Hey everyone, When trying to start my car, it does not start, makes a clicking noise, and all the electronics are going haywire. Headlights, dash, interior lights rapidly flashing, sometimes it says key isn't detected, sometimes it says refuel. When trying to unlock/lock the car, the mirrors...

I also noticed that the instrument cluster lights flicker when the car starts on the second key press. The car has the original factory battery and it has OEM remote...

    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...
