Question about Kia Sorento

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.

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.
