Are you an automotive shop or are you just a customer? You're going to need to interrogate the control module that controls the blind spot monitoring with a professional-quality scan tool it probably has to be reset, even doing an alignment on most modern vehicles with blind spot monitoring requires you to reset the blind spot monitoring.

IT HAS TO GO TO DEALER FOR THIS.
Kia Mechanic: Danny, ASE Certified Technician replied 3 months ago
It doesn't necessarily need to go to the dealer, but unless you want to spend $1,000 on a scan tool, or you know somebody with a high end tool like a Snap On Modis or Solid, it needs to go to a shop.
