One of your door (or trunk) switches may have failed that controls the warning 'chime.' Another possibility; if you have anything weighing a couple of pounds on an unoccupied seat, it may think there is an 'unbelted' passenger in that position.
You can try to locate a defective door switch by opening one door at a time, locating the switch button (look for it on the door frame) and depress it, letting it snap back out. Sometimes the switch contacts geet contaminated or corroded and letting the button 'snap' out can shake the contacts enough to restore electrical contact.

My 2006 Kia Optima brake lights stay on constantly only when the car is running. When the car is shut off, they will function correctly. All fuses ok. Not sure where else to check.


Does your cruise control work? If not it is the brake light switch. It will be a small mechanical switch that will be activated when pushing down on the brake pedal. May need a new switch or just adjusting.

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.
