Well obviously i did not get one with my car. Does kia have that where obviously you get the normal 2 sets owner keys, then a valet key? Every car i had or bought new in the last years did.
I know that if your Smart Key dies you can put it in the little opening on the left side in the glove box. This should let you start your car in an emergency.I am the dumb ass that said the removable key locks the glove box. Sorry about that. EX does not even have a key hole for the glove box. The removable key does lock/unlock the drivers door. Tried it today. i think the key is for emergency. However, if the fob fails, you access the car with the key, will it start? Very strange?
Yes, that's it exactly. If the fob fails, push the little button and pull out the key, insert in the opening next to the glove box and the push button starter will work.I know that if your Smart Key dies you can put it in the little opening on the left side in the glove box.

Thanks JC!The "key" is used to open the doors and also you need it to enable/disable the child-proof door locks on the rear doors.
I'm in the office, so I can't take a pic. But I will if you need me to. It's on the door sill right near the closing mechanism. it's a white plastic piece with a square hole in it. You put the key in and turn it. There is an arrow there I beleive to tell you which way is locked. I may not be explaining it well. If you need a pic I'll post it later, or if someone else can post one.Thanks JC!
So I've looked for child-proof locks on the rear doors and never seen any kind of switch or anything. Where does that key go to child-proof the rear doors?
