    Howdy all! First Kia...bought it for the standard safety features. I came here because I get ZERO indication that my FCW or AEB is active? I commute 40 miles a day in heavy traffic...assume I would get something...but nada... The Lane Assist (car in two lanes) and steering wheel icons show...

    Hi folks, my rear view mirror only dims intermittently, has anyone encountered this issue? It works for a while then "un-dims" at night.

    CD player in my 2011 Optima stopped working. I ejected a CD and tried to insert another but wouldn’t go in. I noticed the red light says “ CD-in” and the readout says “macha error”. I think the player thinks theirs still a CD inside. I also noticed that if I try to insert one there’s a slight...

    My seat recently stopped moving backwards once I turn the car (11 SX) off and I've confirmed that the setting is in fact set to "on". Anyone experience this and/or know of a fix? TIA

    As the temperatures drop, I went to use my heated steering wheel for the first time this year on my 2012 Optima EX and it isn't working. The indication light that is supposed to light up on the button does not light up when pressed and the wheel is not heating up. I already checked the fuse...

    hi all, took my 2012 optima to the local kia dealer for the usual oil change and tire rotation. while there, they noted that I had 1 tail light bulb out (not a big deal) and my fog lights were not working...not because of burned out bulbs but because of something else, either wiring or a...

    Hi Everyone! Beargirl from Utah here! I just bought a new 2017 optima about a month ago..... I love the car... But the big issue I am having is the bluetooth will not get out of private mode! If I have the car off and am not on the phone then turn it on the bluetooth calls work.. If I get in the...

    Hi all! Just noticed yesterday that my blind spot detection was not working, no illumination and no beeping. Is there a way to disable it, and could I have done this accidentally? Just wanted to do a quick check before I take it in to the dealer, to avoid looking like an idiot if I did this...

    This is my third attempt at posting an introduction thread so I can actually use this forum. I tried about a month ago & noticed that after I hit post, nothing appeared. My profile never showed that I posted anything & I couldn't find my post. So this is all I'm putting in this post for now...
  11. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Hi everyone, so this is really annoying and I am not sure what to do. I have a 2014 Optima that just crossed 68K miles. For some reason, the switch used to select if the lights will always be on, off or only on when the doors are open has broken ( never actually use the switch), and now my...

    I wanted to check the fuse for this but I can't find the fuse in the interior fuse bank or under the engine. I considered that the same fuse that operates the wiper motor operates the windshield wiper fluid pump. In which case the problem would be my washer pump because my wipers are working...
  13. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I've got a 2012 Optima SX and the fog lights have stopped working. I've looked through the manual and can't find anything about the fuse location for the FRONT fogs. I even replaced the bulbs (bit of a hassle) but no luck. So... anybody know where the fuse is? Or any other possible...

    MNSoft was running a sale on map updates so I finally bit. Download and install process took forever, but eventually worked. However, now Sirius traffic, which worked fine before is not working right. Every time I start the car, I have to go into the traffic screen. It shows up as...

    Hey guys. I recently had to replace that little steering coupler other members have had issues w/that caused clicking and rattling in the steering column. My 2012 EX (premium package, no nav) was just out of warranty, so I did it myself. Everything seemed to go ok w/it and the rides since have...

    So i had issues yesterday with fuses....I got all that sorted out and everything is back to normal.... EXCEPT...My spare key fob (with a new battery) wont lock or unlock the car.....all of the buttons dont work for that matter. But if I put it into the glove box fob holder, it will start the...
  18. 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?

    2016 Optima SX. I cannot get UVO to work with my Verizon Galaxy Note 5 with Android 6.0 marshmallow. If it's plugged in and I try to send vehicle diagnostics or parking reminder it says phone not connected and to connect with USB. Android auto is off as it states it cannot work with UVO. I also...
