I just installed a remote...
I just installed a remote start into a 2015 kia sorento. OEM kit 1U056ADU00. aside from a few drops of blood it went in fine. Every thing works as it should but the lift gate. The gate will not unlock from the remote or the exterior release. I have reset the 26 I/P-L as tol in the trouble shooting guide.
