2016 Kia Sorento PTS

Post by spencerforhire » Thu Dec 08, 2016 4:24 pm

The feature chart for an HCX000A shows 3xlock start from OEM remote, but the "required accessories" column indicates that an RF package is necessary. Can I presume that from these 2 seemingly contradictory pieces of info that yes it will start from the OEM remote, but once running, the fob will no longer work?
I may have gotten myself in a bit of a spot; I assumed that what worked on a Hyundai Santa Fe would work on a Kia Sorento, but the two vehicles are not as similar as I thought.

Key fob should stay working on PTS vehicles. I'll have them check on the listing.

My research(on the Automobility website's "remote start ready" section), shows the 2016 PTS Santa Fe's remote still active while the vehicle is running but not the Sorento's. But both show up the same on the Idatastart feature page; 3xlock start yes, but also require an RF kit.

Listing on the website was wrong. RF kit is not required. It will do 3x from OEM.
