I have a 2004 Kia Optima, I looked all over the net for a way to program the fobs. Everywhere I turned they pointed me to the kia dealership. I also called some mechanic friends, they said they weren't able to do it and you guessed it, they pointed me to the kia dealership. So I called the dealership and the charge was 40.00 to program it. I called another kia dealership on the other side of town to see if there were any differences. They were going to charge me 10.00. Anyway, long story short - the dealership has to program the fobs. In the end, the dealership that was going to charge me 10 bucks gave it to me for free. This was about a year ago, well my fobs stopping working again. So I looking again to see if there are any 3rd party products to program my fobs. This is the only problem I have had with my optima, I also have 2004 Kia sedona (minivan) with no problems. I haven't had to replace the batteries yet in the fobs, go figure. Hope this helps.
