bought a used 2004 Optima EX, but the remote won't work. Battery is good and little red light goes on when buttons are pushed, but none of them work on car. Any thoughts or solutions?

Some sellers on ebay say this must be programmed at the dealership or at a locksmiths. Anyone who has done it himself please write.

They can't be reprogramed if it doesn't work with new battery's you need a new transmitter. Yours is OVER 10 years old now, they go through hell

Exactly what does the dealer Do? What does the locksmith do?
Why are even DIY owners so secretive? What exactly is the procedure? For goodness sake nothing is secret anymore, there must be a locksmith, a mechanic at a Kia dealership, someone, somewhere who can tell me just what the procedure is?
