You'll need to contact your Kia dealer with proof of ownership of your car and the VIN number. They can then look up the key pattern and order it in. If the keys are immobiliser keys, then they'll be very expensive and will still need programming to the ignition system. Many Kia dealers will program them to your car for free if you're a regular customer.

The only other option is even more expensive: get an automotive locksmith to replace all of the lock barrels, the ignition barrel and to provide new keys and to program them to the car. This option is often so expensive that it sends otherwise perfectly good cars to the scrapyard.

Sorry, but if you have lost your keys then there is no quicker option to regain full use of your vehicle.

I have a 2010 Honda pilot! I lost my keys at work and can't find the spare My question is how long will it take before the alarm system deactivates so I can check if the spare is in my car?


You dont have to wait. Pop the locks. Use wedges to flex the door at the top and a rod to hit the unlock button. When the alarm goes off pop the hood and pull the pos battery cable. Now you can look for your keys without some one thinking you are stealing the car.

Insert key and turn ignition to on position. Wait untill the "security" light goes out (about ten minutes). Turn key off. do not remove. repeat this step two more times. After third time remove key. You should now be able to start vehicle. To program the spare use the already programed key and turn it to the on possition (dont start) then off. remove key and insert spare and turn to the on position. Wait for "security light to go out then turn key off. Both keys should now be programmed.
