Electric mirrors on my Amanti not staying fixed when set after cutting engine off

The side mirrors on my 05 Amanti will not stay in their fixed positons after the car is turned off. Everytime I get back in my car, the mirrors or angled somewhere other than where I lift them. I have to reset the mirrors everytime I get back in and start the engine. They seem to move or float off their positions when setting idle when engine is turned off. I called the KIA dealer where I bought the car to take it back for them to look at since it is still under the 60,000 mile warranty. The service mg. right off tried to tell me that it is a programing problems with the computer, and therefore it will not be covered uner the warranty and I will have to pay between $75.00 to $120.00 for them to fix it.
Is there any information or way that I can have them check this without me paying this fee under the warranty.??????

    I have the same problem. Changed both mirrors, changed body control module, and reprogrammed several times, without any change. This is a problem of the 2005 Amanti, and it seems that Kia has no clue. Please send me your email address as I wish to start a class action against Kia.          Posted January 20, 2009.

I've noticed a similar problem. Try manually setting the mirrors and seat and then set them as setting one or two on the memory. When you get out, hit the lock button on the key-less remote (in lieu of the lock button on the door) and see if that locks them in for you.

Is the tps sensor the same thing as an app sensor

No, your car is a fly by wire. This means there is no throttle cable its all electronic. The tps is the throttle position sensor, and the app is the accelerater pedel positon sensor.

How to replace cabin air filter. model : kia amanti 2005

On the 05 Amanti, open the glove box, take everything out, then push the box past the stops. It will drop down more and expose a wire that has spring tension on it. With one hand pull the wire a little farther out and with the other hand feed the end of the wire out of the glove box. Slowly let the wire retract - don't let it snap back. You will now see the entry into the cabin air filter. Push down on the 2 tabs and remove the faceplate. Remove the filter. Put new filter back in and reverse the above directions

Side Mirror Turn Signals Malfunctioning.

You have hooked them up to the wrong power wire. They have to be hooked up to the power wire after the flasher control. The easist way would be to go in the engine compartment, find the back of the turn tignal, and conect the mirror power wire (red) to the power wire there. You may need more wire than what the side mirrors came with, but this would be the quickest solution

''No Con'' appears on radio screen on 2004 Kia Amanti

the radio could be locked up you can pull the audio fuse in the dash out for a min or 2 then plug back in. that should fix it. if not you need a new radio. Kia doesn't make them anymore so you either need to find a junkyard one or go to the dealer to have them ship it out and get repaired.
