    Ok, this has happened several times over the last few car trips I've been on... I make sure tire pressure is adequate (36 Psi), and hit the road. About 4-5 hours after starting out, the TPMS light comes on. Haven't hit anything, tire pressure hasn't dropped. Give it 20 minutes, light starts...

    Went out to the 2017 Kia Optima Hybrid in my driveway this afternoon and went to start it up and after pushing the start button and the system self check a "STOP VEHICLE AND CHECK BRAKES" warning appeared in the middle of the digital display. Now for the fun part... The car was driven earlier...

    2013 KIA Optima. Installed low beam HID lights. Now the ESC warning indicator light goes ON when the low beams are on. Should I worry? When headlights are OFF no warning light. Thank you for any advice.

    With Lane Keep Assist I keep getting the warning to keep my hands on the wheel, even if they are. For example, if I am going down a very straight road and dont need to move the wheel yet my hands are on it, I'll get the message. Any way to change the sensitivity of this message? Or delay the...

    Good morning all - On my way to work this AM, I got a "Hybrid System Warning, please pull over and turn the car off" dash warning. I pulled over at the nearest gas station. I was low on fuel so I decided to refuel while the car was shut off for a few minutes. After about 5 minutes, I...
  8. 4th Generation Optima (2016 - 2020)
    Got my SXL a few days ago, and let's just say I've tried to tested the FCW system a few times. However, I've had no luck getting the alerts, and I've even tried changing the notification timing to early. Any one else with an SXL have thoughts on how easy it is to the FCW to engage?

    Hey guys, if you have Synapse BOV from Nameless Performance, make sure your top screw are all in place. I was doing an oil change today, I noticed that one of the top screw is missing and another one is out all the way, I quickly screwed in the one but the other one is currently missing. The...

    Does anyone know what tire pressure level triggers the low tire pressure warning light? About once a month my light comes on and says the back driver's side tire is low. Whenever I check the pressure it's never been lower than 32. I'll air it back up and the light goes off. But it will...

    I have found that both Hyundai and Kia deliver their new cars with 2 year old map versions from MapNsoft. before you sign on the dotted line make sure that you get the latest version included on your contract. Also be aware that their new map version is over 2 years old when they become...

    I accidentally discovered that the Electronic Parking Brake will engage when pressed even when the vehicle is still in motion. The brake pedal was not being pressed when I reached for the auto-hold button and missed. I heard the parking brake engage and the car cam to a VERY abrupt stop...

    We have a 2011 Optima Hybrid and last week I took it in for a scheduled oil change. They took it back in the garage and I < presume > they did actually change the oil but I didn't see them do it. When I left the dealers the warning that I needed to change the oil came up AGAIN!! It comes up...

    This devise servers two purposes. I prevents the annoying seatbelt warning chime from sounding, without effecting any of the other warning chimes, and it extends the seatbelt latch slightly higher, making it easier to use. $6.59 shipped...
