    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...

    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...

    Today I was brushing the snow off my windshield. I went to lift the wipers up to get underneath them. They wouldn't go up as the arms hit the hood. This seems weird to me, is this normal on Optimas?

    Hi Guys, My driver side bulb is out and I'm trying to get it replaced. The housing cover is stuck and won't open. I've unscrewed the White reservoir and put it to the side but for the life of me I can't open the cover. I've read somewhere that there is a screw somewhere underneath but can't...

    Hi, I'm new to the forum. Love all the info. A few months back I had a couple of instances where my Optima wouldn't start when pressing the brake and start button. I assumed that I didn't depress the brake hard enough or something because it started right up the 2nd time and seemed to be ok...
  8. Hybrids
    For those that don't keep track of other people's cars... Mine is a 2012 Hybrid and almost 160Kmi. (Prob the highest mileage one on these forums.) Title says it all. HEV battery indicator had 2 pips on it and I tried going over 3000RPM. Optima said "Nope" and even downshifted to a higher gear...

    Last Monday I noticed my trunk wouldn't open using my FOB so I had to manually open it. This Friday, I received a notice that the vehicle didn't recognize the key. Got the second FOB, same message so I started it through the glove compartment. Got to the store, came out doors unlocked normally...

    I have recently purchased a used 2014 Optima SX (less than two months ago). From the start I've been having problems with it not starting. The interior lights, headlights, radio, etc. come on but car will not start. At first thought it was the batteries to the FOBs. Replaced batteries in both...

    So I have a few issues. My TPMS system stopped working and there is streaking on the inside of my headlight. My dealership refuses to fix anything and here are their excuses For streaking headlight: They claim that since I have an aftermarket bulb I "broke the seal" and that allowed moisture...

    So of course I just start messing with the car and instantly screw up. I totally should have unplugged the battery before swapping all the interior bulbs. With that admission out of the way, I'd like to recount what happened and where I'm at to see what the next course of action is. I'm totally...

    Started car to go to work and all it will do is spit and sputter. If you try and rev engine up it will not get over 2,000 RPM, just spits and sputters and some backfires. Engine light come on after it died 2 twice. GREAT MONDAY MORNING, stranded with no ride. Not a happy Kia owner right...

    Just bought a new 2016 Optima SXL and trying to connect to my home wifi. So I'm sitting in the car in my garage, and can easily see my home Wi-Fi network. I select it, and I am prompted for my password, and it saves the connection, but will never connect. Even after selecting the network again...

    So I've got a 14 Optima EX. Never had any problems with playing music over Bluetooth but all of the sudden, today, neither mine nor my wife's iPhone 6 will play over Bluetooth. When we hit the media button it says no media. Any idea why this would happen all of the sudden? We've tried deleting...
