    Thanks Joe,

    I was kind of hoping to install it myself but by asking around
    that's the same conclusion that I seen to come to every time.
    So to make sure not to mess it up that's the way to go.

    Thank you for your help, it is good.

    Cheers
    Peter

I would forget adding a boy boy racer gizmo ,these kias are very susceptable to being played with and then the immobilisor will come on and only a dealer can reset it becaue the diagnostic plug is under the bonnet and the OBDII inside the vehicle is all for show .The best antitheft device i can recommend is a steering wheel lock /bar that goes throught the spokes of the steerinig wheel ,i must answer at least two or three questions in an hour or two about cars not starting and how to remove these things . If someone wants to steal it they will break into your house and get the keys or just lift it with a breakdown truck and no one will even bat a eyelid .You are just creating a big proble and headache in a year or two when it packs up

I have checked the data sheet and I have no reference for the code you have given. All I can tell you is that it could be a poor or no connection to the air heater element or a wiring harness fault near the air intake air pipe.

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.

Car alarm not activating central locking


It means that the remote is not passing the signal to the car . The alarm has triggered because the system has detected an illegal entry. Replace the remote batteries
