I have a new remote 2011 Kia Sorento; the original stopped

Customer Question

I have a new remote for my 2011 Kia Sorento; the original stopped working a few days ago. Each website I've looked at says it needs to be taken to a locksmith because they do not have a code for it. Do you know the code??

sorry for the delay............

Greetings...... “Hi, I’m Don (akaCustomer and I look forward to helping you!”

The "Code" you are referring to is generated thru the Dealer Scan Tool.
There is NO Customer Input for a "Code", without use of Dealer Scan Tool
You cannot "Program" your Remote without use of Dealer Scan Tool.
The Programming must be done by Kia Dealer or Shop that has Kia GDS Scan Tool.......
No other way
