Asked by Sep 03, 2013 at 05:59 PM about the 2008 Kia Optima EX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer

I ever so slightly turned the wheel left/right while trying to turn the key. It worked. This happened a second time with the same result. A very gentle touch is what solved the problem (twice). Hope this helps.
