    Hi cobra259,
    Lost one of the keys to our 2012 Sorento. Could you let me know how much a replacement would go for?

    I need help, my 2011 Sorento navigation system has stopped working, it only plays FM. When i start car it does not come to the intial screen and just starts with FM, some time gives error like system startup error, your system will reboot within 10 seconds" and sometimes give reading usb....

    I have not been able to use nav system for past month, i tried reset pen button above fm/am switch but no go. Any advice

    Saw a thread where you give discounted keys. Looking for a simple key(s) to just unlock the door. Is there anything you can do for me? I have the key number as well.

    Do you happen to know what the dna card for the kia sportage 2013 w/out push start is? I installed the kit which the dealer i bought it from said was for my vehicle but after I installed it and it wouldn't work, they said oh yeah you need to have the jumpers changed to use the dna card they sold me or buy the one that's exactly for my vehicle? They wanted $250 to make the changes!! I told them to stick it but now i'm stuck!! any help would be great!! Thanks, Rich

    I just finished reading a post where I saw you help someone get the side view glass and backing for a Kia Optima back in 2012. I was hoping that you might be able to do the same for me. I have a 2013 Kia Optima. Let me know if there is any way you can help me out. Please advise.

    Hi Cobra...

    Sorry for barging in on you but I'm up against a timeline.

    My neighbour has 2 handicapped kids with Palsy and needs her car to take them to the doctor tom. I'm helping her out for free but I'm a little stuck.

    Would you help me a bit with your time and expertise?

    > 2000 Sephia, fuel delivery problem. Normally after checking relay and fuse I would check for power at pump.

    My delay is 2 things I read here. 1. The two regulators. 2. One
    person said that the sephia pump did not pump until you were cranking
    the engine.

    Relay and fuse good. (haven't checked for power at pump yet)
    With key in on position, little or no pressure at the rail.

    I removed the rail regulator. (still attached to fuel line) and turned motor over for about 15 seconds. Just a dribble or two out of detached regulator.

    Car will still start and idle, sometimes dying and when it does
    not, barely runs at around 100 to 200 rpm.

    What do you think?

    Thank you for your time,

    Can the key fob for the 2011Kia Sorento be programmed without the key, if so can you go ahead and send the key fob, and when you get the key you can bill me for the postsage for sending the key.

    A poster on my thread recommended that I pose my question to you and you might be able to help, so here goes. I'm rebuilding the engine on a 2000 Sportage that overheated on my in-laws, and the head cracked. I found a new head, but couldn't find new head bolts anywhere but the dealership. I know the originals are not Torque to Yield. What's your opinion about reusing the original bolts? And if I need to buy new ones, is there a way to get them any cheaper? Thanks.
