Question about Kia Optima

1 Answer

I changed the battery in my 2005 Kia Optima and the door locks stopped working. When I hit the lock button in the car, it immediately unlocks. Is there something that has to be done to reset them?

    I don't have a keyless entry remote. I just lock the door on the console. Will this solution still work?

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.

2005 kia optima driver door wont unlock


You may have an bad door lock actuator. If it can't be unlocked manually, with the master switch or key fob the most likely cause is the door lock actuator. For this you would have to remove the door panel in order to gain access to it.

My 2005 kia optima passenger door wont open from inside or out even when unlocked how do i get it open


just had a similar problem with my optima on the drivers side, power lock and manual lock would not open drivers door, after fighting with the door i did get it open and took the door panel off, lubed all internal parts of the door and it still was sticking, ended up to be the lock itself and had to get it fixed at a local garage, $173.00 later its fine, they had to replace the lock . Hope this might help you
