This only works if you use a regular key in the ignition to start your Kia (Not a keyless FOB where you use a pushbutton start and the Fob has to be inside the car or a laser cut key).

Asked dealer for spare key for my wallet and they told me it would be about $70 each. I went online and looked up "2016 Kia Forte5 blank key code" which was KK8-P. I looked up this code and found many places that sell the blanks. Ordered 5 blanks for $1.19 each and had them sent to me. I used a company called CLK Supplies in Idaho(they are online). There are others out there.

Took blanks to my local hardware store (they have a key cutting machine) and had them cut the keys for me. They used the key that folds up into my FOB to cut the blanks. They all worked great and even start the car should you lose you regular FOB set. I can unlock my drivers side door using these spare keys. I keep one in my wallet for backup. When you take them to the hardware store for cutting make sure you tell them to use setting "C" on their cutting machine. This is the setting that holds the key properly in the machine while being cut.

My total cost for these 5 blank key cut to fit my auto was around $15.00. It would have been $350 at the dealership.
HOPE THIS IS HELPFUL TO SOMEONE ELSE, IT SURE WAS TO ME!!
