Customer Question

I have a 2004 Kia Sorento that I worked on. I disconnected the battery to do the work. When I reconnect the battery the alarm goes off and the care won't start. There is no fob for this car, just a key. How can I fix this?

Hi there,

All you can do without the fob is connect the battery, close the hood and doors, lock the driver door with the master lock switch. Then, unlock it with the key, but hold it in the unlock position for a few seconds until the alarm stops.

This should work, please try it and let me know.
