Set the light switch to Auto and then don't worry about it.

Do not have auto have basic model no frills


I don't know then but once again a dealer not wanting to take care of their customers. That is a new car, they should be helping you, but what do you do? They got their monies. Just have to be rude to them.

Thank you next time think I will get older model if going to have problems at least will not keep kicking myself for wondering why having so many problems with new car and at dealership all the time will never get Kia again maybe I just have a lemon


Unless I won the Mega Millions, I would never buy a new car from a dealer. Next year my truck will be a cruzin classic.

Thanks for help and hope you win !
