Car won't lock with fob or switch, dash lights, headlights and blower stay on

Asked by Nov 20, 2016 at 05:34 PM about the 2013 Kia Optima LX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

This all started when I noticed my car wouldn't lock
with the key fob, thought maybe it was a dead
battery. Went to lock it from the inside it doesn't
allow me to (maybe a security thing I don't know)
anyways I noticed the dash lights and headlights
wouldn't turn off either unless I take the headlights
off of auto and turn to off. Disconnected the battery
for the weekend since I was leaving town, come
back, it's doing the same thing and now when the
car is off and keys out of the ignition the blower
stays on unless turned to off. Tested my spare key
fob so it's nothing to do with a dead battery. Also
when I first start the car the exclamation mark in
parentheses that normally indicates low tire
pressure flashes 5-6 times then goes away.
