Question about 2012 Kia Sorento

Open Question

Why do the door locks on my 2012 Kia Sorento click repeatedly when I put the vehicle in gear?

This just started this week. I'll turn on the ignition, and put the vehicle in reverse or drive. The door locks will go click-click-click-click, although I don't see the latches move. Also, tonight I couldn't get all four doors to lock with the key fob button, don't know if that's related. EDIT: My left rear passenger door won't lock, I discovered today. That's probably the cause of the clicking, the system trying to lock it and failing. How can I fix it? TIA for info. 2ND EDIT: And now it works normally. Still, any info is appreciated, in case it fritzes out again.

If the battery is going bad in the remote, does that have an impact on starting the car?


This sounds like there is a problem with the security chip in your key itself. There should be on your window behind the mirror. That is how the remote interacts with your ignition. Check the wiring to that key holder.

My 2012 kia optima Fob died i replaced the battery but it still wont work unless i put it in the glovebox just to start the car the buttons on the fob doesnt work i only had the car for 2 months.


There is a possibility that your key fob might lost the programming. I suggest that you re-program your key fob, follow the next steps to re-program it.

Instructions
    • 1 Sit in the vehicle and close all the doors. Insert the key into the ignition.
    • 2 Turn the key to the "Off" position then to the "On" position. Repeat this until the door locks cycle to indicate that the programming mode is activated. End with the ignition key in the "On" position.
    • 3 Press the "Unlock" or "Lock" button on the programmable remote. Listen for the doors to lock or unlock to verify successful programming.
    • 4 Turn the ignition key to the "Off" position. Listen for the door locks to cycle to indicate that you have exited the programming mode.
    • 5 Repeat the above steps to add any additional remotes.

JUST GOT A KIA SORENTO AND ITS MAKING A WEIRD BUZZING SOUND FROM THE BACK REAR DOOR. WHEN I LOCK THE DOORS


Most likely its the door lock actuator, they use a plastic gear that is turned by a small motor, that gear is probably starting to strip out.
