The P1326 is the knock sensor detector which usually indicates your engine is toast.

Good news, from the settlement, Kia has to replace the engine and give you a loaner at new cost.

Go to the Kia dealer.

You might want to call ahead to verify if the dealership has loaner vehicles available, because they are supposed to provide a loaner if they determine the engine needs to be replaced. Assuming you have a choice between dealerships.

If you drive the car chances are you won't be able to go more than 2000 RPM and with the code, comes limp mode.
Do not erase the code(s) and as above, take it to a Kia dealership, but they will determine if it is an engine problem or false alarm, harness problem.
Hopefully the former, and a new engine will be installed, but just keep in mind if it is an engine problem, it could seize at any time, so don't delay.

I drop the car off this morning they didn’t say anything about a loaner just might keep it for 10 days
