Kia Troubleshooting Questions? Ask a Mechanic
Hello JACUSTOMER, did something happen to the vehicle or are you just wondering what needs to be done if there is a problem?
Nothing happened to the vehicle (not yet anyway). I was just wondering what the procedures were for KIA emergency starts when the smart key fob dies. The key that is contained within the smart key fob ONLY opens the door---there is no ignition switch to place the key since it is a push button start.
Okay. Unfortunately they do not make a back up to get the vehicle started just to get it opened. You just need to pay close attention to the warning message that tells you when the battery is low.
