Just finished wiping the engine on my optima with a 2013 sonata engine 2.0 turbo. Now car won't start can hear the relay kick in but no starter. Brake lights stay on after first attempt. Checked all harnesses and they are good. Hit the starter directly and the car started fine. But still will not start with the push start button. Car was doing fine before the engine replacement

The battery is good. But now my overhead lights won't turn on and my car won't start with the push button.

My car has a clicking noise when going over a bump or turning, and my steering wheel feels like it moves.

I replace the fog lights one when out then before I can get home the other fog light went out.

i am knot suire

I pulled up and stopped fast to get out and threw it in park. Maybe slightly before I was completely stopped. Now it wont start without the fob in the dash. Also, the interior lights wont come on. Ad the blinker indicators on the cluster and high beam indicator doesn't come on. Also, I have to take the batter cable off the terminal or it will kill the battery within about 10-15 mins cause the GPS screen is staying on! And the gear shift button has very little pressure and I can move it out of park without holding the break or button on the shifter. What's the deal?!

re: 2013 Kia Optima LX. Radio will not turn on. Trunk will not open using either the key fob or the release inside the car. I turned the car on. I could then open the trunk with the inside release button, but the radio still does not work. Trunk does not open when the car is not running. This just started happening today.

I already had about a 1/4 tank of regular gas in my car, but I went to add another $20 worth of gas. Not really paying attention I ended up putting diesel in the tank, and didn't realize it until I drove for about 8 miles then the car started jerking. How much should it cost me to have this repaired?

Happened out of blue. Car was damaged in front 3 months prior but ran fine w no prblms. At Kia Dealer for 2 weeks wo a word. Now, call and tell me it's because of damage to wire harness I caused (under warranty if not my fault) Seems shady. Think they can't figure out so blaming me. Keep seeing immobilizer prblms on forums. Think that's what it is. I don't know what to do. Case of woman being taken advantage of...don't know enough, but have been researching prblm enough to know I'm not only one. PLEASE HELP ASAP

The smell from the a.c. is of old moldy wet rags it bad what can be done to fix rtf his problem

Transmission fluid has leaked but can't find where to add any. Also, having same anti-theft issue w not being able to start car as owners of Sedonas. Car also just shut down while driving.

Are there any recalls for the back brakes? My back brakes are digging into the rotors making indentions. I have approximately 35,000 miles on my 2013 Optima.

I think what I had was a really bad jerk from downshift. It just happened out of nowhere, It felt like someone had hit my car from behind. The stick moved from Drive to N by itself. I had to put the car in park before it would let me move it back to drive. The dealership said they could not find anything wrong, but they did up do an update on the computer. Lucky for me I had just gotten off the highway.
