The 01 Optima had the keyless entry buttons right on the key itself. I'm not sure if the LX had the option... it was standard on the SE version. In any case, programming is done at the dealership, and is expensive. They use their special "code reader / writer" that plugs into the OBD II port under the dash. You provide all keys and they are recoded to the module that is located under the stereo. A cheaper option might be an aftermarket alarm installed at a local car audio shop. They are less expensive than you might think, even installed. Good luck.
P.S. the 01 Optima remote key had a problem with very short range. You needed to be within a few feet of the doors for it to work.

SOURCE: brake lights do not work.
Most likely is the brake light switch under the dash. This is a plastic button that the brake pedal depresses when you're not pushing it down. This little swtich is easily replaced. Buy a new one and see if it comes with a plug connector. If so, follow the old one's wires to the connector and switch them out. If no, cut the old one out and splice in the new one using solder/electrical tape (recommended) or wire connectors/electrical tape, or twist-tie together/lots of electrical tape.
