Question about 2003 Kia Spectra

1 Answer

My 2007 kia spectra's door lock themselves

If I press the unlock button on my keychain twice, it unlocks my door, then unlocks all the doors. I can usually get in fine, but if a passenger tries to open the door, all the doors lock. If I get in first then it's usually ok, but it's quite annoying after a while. I thought it might be some special spectra safety feature or something but it doesn't seem like it at all. The end result is me having to press the unlock button like 5 times while awkwardly having my passengers watch me struggle and have a hassle themselves getting in. What's up with that?

Check the battery for the remote and the car battery as well. Weak batteries can make modules act up. If they are good, then chances are the module for the alarm is no good.

Got the car back from bodyshop same thing no clock or radio and keyless entry problems


Sounds like they disconnected your battery when they were working on your car. Your radio probably requires an unlock code to get it to work again which you'll have to get from a dealership with proof that the car is yours.

They key fob will also have to be reset.

  1. Close all the vehicle doors.
  2. Insert the ignition key into the ignition lock cylinder.
  3. Press and hold the door unlock switch.
  4. While holding the door lock switch in the unlock position, cycle the ignition ON, OFF, ON, OFF.
  5. Release the door unlock switch. The doors will lock and unlock to confirm the program mode.
  6. Press and hold the LOCK button and the UNLOCK button simultaneously on one transmitter. After a delay of approximately 15 seconds, the doors will lock and unlock to confirm the programming of that transmitter.
  7. Turn the ignition switch to the On position in order to exit the keyless entry transmitter programming mode.
  8. Operate the transmitter functions in order to verify correct system operation.
