Ok guys, I replaced both batteries in both 2015 kia key fobs. Now my kia Optima hybrid wont respond to any of them. Ive read and viewed video that say" but smart key in ignition and turn blah blah"... I dont have a key hole in my car visible .... dont see it in Glove. What do I do.. my fob lights up when keys pressed but no action..how do I reprogram ?

Don't believe in normal use they need to be programmed, but if they were working before, put the old batteries back in,
and make certain new batteries 3 volts.

Did see this in the manual:
When the smart key does not work correctly, open and close the door with the mechanical key.
If you have a problem with the smart key, contact an authorized Kia dealer

I agree with @Turbonut above. When chanign the batteries, you do not need to reprogram the remotes.

If they were working before changing the batteries on them, the new batteries most likely are going to be the issue.
