Hello again -

Thank you for your reply / info --

Ok - Im afraid I can tell you the way forward - but its not exactly heart warming for you -

The info as follows is from the Kia Tech - re when you change the batteries on the key -

Programming

 

NOTE: It may be necessary to program key after replacing batteries.

 

How

  • Keys can only be programmed using diagnostic equipment.

So Im afraid its not something you can do at home / on car, as you can with some - you are going to need to use either a Kia dealer or the likes of an Auto locksmith ( a Mobile auto locksmith can come to you - ) to do the programming for you - basically its lost its frequency settings and that is the only way forward for you now - but that will sort this out for you...

Again - Im sorry its not exactly good news - but that is the answer to this issue for you -

Do let me know if you need anything else at all -

Kind Rgds - MIKE.
