  1. Engine Compartment Cleaning

    2011 - 2013 (XM) Sorento Forum
    I sprayed my 2012 with degreaser and sprayed with water. Got a "check engine" light for the next 2 days. It went away on its own. I think the book says don't use a hose to wash the engine compartment. I have always kept my engine bay clean but am afraid to try it again. One thing, I left it...
  2. 2012 Kia Sorento intermittent Crank but No Start

    2011 - 2013 (XM) Sorento Forum
    Has happened to me 2 or three times in two years. All three times I think I was in a hurry and hit the button before the brake was fully depressed. Not sure since I wasn't paying attention when it happened.
  3. Low Gas Warning Light

    What he said. When my light comes on, count on about 40 miles.

    Glad I read this. My car stays in the garage. Last week I took a trip and left it outside in freezing temps. When I got in it the next day I thought my eyes were failing;) You guys saved me a trip to the eye doctor!:lol:

  6. Products To Clean Plastic Trim

    2011 - 2013 (XM) Sorento Forum
    Agreed! Had the same problem after using Nu Finish, nothing would take it off. Pink erasure works best for me. Peanut butter may look good for a few days and/or leave a residue and attract dust if not done just right. The eraser works and you know instantly if you have got it all. I also...
  7. Tire pressure warning light

    2011 - 2013 (XM) Sorento Forum
    Be sure you gage is accurate. Also, when my tires got low, I aired them up to 33 but the light did not go out. Added 2 psi and the light went out, lowered to 33 and all is good. I'm guessing that when an alert is triggered you must add at least what the SENSOR believes is 33. A small error...

  14. Exterior Black Plastic Trim

    2011 - 2013 (XM) Sorento Forum
    Small amounts of wax residue can be removed with a pink eraser. (really!) Also Mother's Back to black worked for me. By far the best solution I think is to avoid residue in the first place. I just started using Turtle Wax Ice liquid wax. It goes on easy, can be used on black trim and leaves...

  16. Starting with dead smart key battery.

    2011 - 2013 (XM) Sorento Forum
    The fob will start the car if the battery is dead. Insert in slot in console, press till it clicks. To remove it, PUSH down till it clicks and releases. I wanted to carry my extra fob in the car in case I lost mine on vacation etc. If a fob is left in the car, you can't lock it. I put a...
