2016 Kia Optima Steering Wheel buttons don't match

Post by loug » Sun Jan 13, 2019 12:13 pm

I have a 2016 Kia Optima LX. The steering wheel display listed on Weblink Flash by vehicle (for 2016 Kia Optima base) does not match my vehicle. My steering wheel does not have a separate buttons on the lower left and right sides for Voice button and Dual mode button respectively.
The Voice button on my car is the upper left button on the left side of steering wheel. (On Maestro picture this is the mute button). On my car the mute function is pushing in the Vol button.

The button functions on the right side of the steering wheel are all flip -flopped:

you can still select the steering wheel listed and the functions will still work like they are supposed to. No matter the location on this wheel the buttons will still do what they are assigned to do.

So, I do not have to reassign buttons, even though some of the positions are reversed. Will the button functions match my steering wheel exactly?

If the number of audio specific buttons and the function those buttons do matches your vehicle, then they should all line up and work even if the wheel appearance varies slightly

The 2016 Optima LX does not have the same number of buttons - only 12 total buttons. It does not have the bottom left (Voice) button or bottom right (dual mode) button.

Flash it with the wheel on the site. There are the same number and function of buttons, they are just laid out differently on the wheels.
