I have a problem.

Both my remote controls for central locking failed on me (one now, the other one year ago). They do work (led light turns on when i push lock/unlock button), but the doors don't lock/unlock...probably they emit wrong frequency. If i manuly unlock the car (central locking works fine), the engine does not unlock...

Because of that the engine does not start, you must unlock the car wit remote in order to unlock the engine.

Is it possible to permanently disable engine lock?

Does anyone know if it is possible to repair remote control? (reset it...).

New ones (2x) cost (at my dealer) about 200 euro.

Thank you for your help, and sorry about my english, i don't use it much and it probably shows.

How did you solve this situation as I have exactly the same problem, I can't unlock the engine, because the code have changed.

Welcome to the KIA forums. I think it would be one for a specialist KIA workshop to sort out. The body control module that recieves the signal from the remote and controls the locking and immobiliser is most likely the problem, it may need replacing.
