Question about Kia Sorento

Can a remote starter be installed on a 2012 Kia Sorento with a push button starter?

We've heard conflicting explanations on whether or not a remote starter can be installed on our car that uses a push button starter rather than a key system.

SOURCE: I want to install Toyota OEM remote starter to my 2009 Venza.

Do not install the OEM starter - it only works from about 80 feet away and is quite problematic. I just purchased a new V6-AWD with the push button start and the dealer is taking the OEM start out as we speak and taking it for an after market starter.

If you decide to do it yourself (you'll need to be quite mechanically inclined for this install), check youtube as the poster above has suggested - but again I highly suggest you consider an aftermarket starter and save the money that I didn't.

SOURCE: 2001 kia optima lx keyless entry system reprogram

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.

Bosch makes a great product, but they're a little pricey, around $500. But if you check rockauto.com you can probably get a deal on one. The brand may be different but they have always sold good stuff.

First off have the battery tested, just because it has enough juice to light the dash and the radio doesn't mean it has the 100 amps needed to run the engine starter motor. Autozone and others do battery testing for free.

Hi I have Kia sorento 2003 and my trouble is idle go up to 3000rpm to shift from 1 to 2 and the idel some time no stable go at round 200to 500 rpm with OBD 2 code P1330. your help will be appreciated...


Dear Allamid,

Seems to me like you need angine diagnostics performed. Your idle speed is way to high here. Mapping the engine should pinpoint and solve the problem. This is typic\lly done by nothing more than plugging a laptop into the onboard computer that governs the engine.

By the sounds of the OBD code that you have, you already knew thisabove procedure.Even so, have the Engine management unit checked, and get someone to check thermostat,engine timing,and might be worth having a full service done.

If you still dont get anywhere with this,get in touch with me andI will investigate the matter thoroughly for you,but in the meantime I do hope that this actually does resolve your issue.

yours sincerely

yes its often that dealers will advise that if car starter installed there is no gurentee as well the car if its finish with the gurentee the tech line advises the mechanics to remove any after market devices installed to repair the original system but most of the time the starter is not the problem but it eliminates it sometimes the car starter has extra features that cause problems in the startingcircuit for example when the car starter installed the main wire is put it between the starter and ignition so if the wire is cut to far this causes a lost between the ignition switch and the starter or the module can be damaged and the same thing apears and so on
