Hi, there is absolutely no way to manually unlatch the hood to access the battery, you have to find a way to forcefully open one of the door to get the access to the hood release lever.
Better still get a tech to do this professionally......

    Your best solution is to call a locksmith to open the vehicle. Then you can access the hood release and replace or charge your battery.

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.

2004 kia amanti my battery light is on and a car with key symbol is on new battery sometimes car starts sometimes does not and i have to charge it to get it going


I don't have much experience with Kia but typically a key light is an immobilizer problem. If the key light is intermittant and coincides with the non start, that is probably it.

I cannot lock or unlock my car with my key fob


Test the battery inside key fob, should be at 3 volts, if is less than 3 volts replace the battery. If that does not work you may need to replace the key fob, on this vehicle you can program the key fob through the radio, the car manual shows you how to do this.

Before replacing the old key fob you can try to resinc the fob to the car by pressing the lock and unlock buttons at the same time for about 15 sec, if the door locks cycle the the fob will work again.

I HAVE A 2004 KIA AMANTI AND IT WON'T LET ME IN AND THE BATTERY IS DEAD HOW CAN I GET INTO THE CAR FROM THE OUTSIDE WITHOUT THE REMOTE OR KEY? I ALSO CAN NOT GET UNDER THE HOOD.


This sounds all to familiar. I was an owner of one of these 2004 amantis as well. If youre 100,000+; sell it before the real problems start. Its a design flaw; I just about flipped when mine did this so I have been there. Only way is to slim jim the door and then pop the hood& pray for power after jumping. The key in the door wont work bc its electric; same goes for key faub, all keyed entry doors,& the trunk! I dont know what these guys were thinkin or smoking when they designed this model. Good luck!
