Kia Key Fob Tricks

When you’re looking at a new Kia, you may need some guidance to take advantage of all of the advanced convenience and technology features at your disposal. Learn more about Kia key fob tricks designed to make life easier with our team at Kia Delray near Boca Raton. Our service experts are always standing by to help you learn how to make the most of your everyday drives.

Lock Your Kia

When you’re running errands in Boynton Beach, the lock button on your Kia key fob doesn’t just lock your car – it actually offers multiple functions:

  • Press this button once to lock all the doors.
  • Press this button twice within two seconds to set the vehicle’s alarm system, confirmed by the sound of the horn.

Unlock Your Kia

Unlocking your Kia with your key fob after leaving your West Palm Beach destination has never been smoother or easier thanks to the following functions:

  • Press the “unlock” button once to quickly unlock the driver’s door.
  • Press the “unlock” button twice within two seconds to unlock all the doors for passengers and to load cargo.

Operate Your Kia Trunk/Liftgate

Each Kia model is designed to offer optimum cargo space for its class. Easily access your trunk for storage with these Kia key fob tips:

  • On vehicles with a manual trunk or liftgate, hold the trunk/liftgate button for more than one second. This unlocks the truck, allowing you to manually open the trunk or liftgate.
  • On vehicles with a power trunk or liftgate, press and hold the button, and it will automatically open the trunk or liftgate for easy cargo space access. Press it again if you want to stop the trunk or liftgate.

Set Off Your Panic Alarm

The Kia key fob panic alarm can cut through the noise to alert those nearby that help is necessary. Simply follow this procedure:

  • Press and hold the “panic” button for a half-second or more to set off the panic alarm.
  • Press and hold the button again to reset the alarm to the off setting.

Utilize Hands-Free Lock/Unlock

Just when you thought life with a Kia couldn’t be any sweeter, Kia offers a “hidden” key fob feature to put the cherry on top. Once you and your trusty Kia key fob are in close proximity to your door, all you have to do is put your thumb on the handle to unlock your door. This Kia key fob trick is a great perk for those of us in Delray Beach who want to get going quicker.

What to Do With a Low Key Fob Battery

After years of ownership pass, you might find that your Kia key fob battery is low. You can either use your physical key tucked neatly away inside the key fob itself, or you can get a replacement battery:

  • Starting the Car – If you notice the battery in your key fob losing power, simply hold the key fob to the remote start button. Simply use the key to push the button to start.
  • Accessing the Mechanical Key – If your key loses power completely, you can easily access the mechanical key via the button on the back of your key fob.
  • Replace Key Fob Battery – If you find yourself in need of a Kia key fob battery replacement, visit our service department today. If you’d rather do it yourself, get in touch with our parts center for the proper battery.
