Just fyi, this is a sub forum for dealer and pricing discussions. You may want to post questions like this in the general forum for better exposure.Just Purchased a Kia carnival LXS, that comes with a factory remote start that is built into the key fob. I have not been able to get it to work once and I’ve tried every single combination including locking and holding for 2 to 4 to 6 seconds. The key fob unlocks and locks the car however when it locks it there is no horn, and I think that is the issue. Is anyone else having problems with this? I read on another model years ago that it won’t start if they thinks the hood is open and it also won’t honk when you lock it if it thinks the hood is open; I can absolutely confirm that the hood is not open I have closed and shut it everything appears to be functioning normally. Very frustrating for a brand new vehicle appreciate any help or insight.
So, I'm going off of memory, but I don't think there is an audible beep (horn doesn't honk ever) when locking the car. It does beep when you unlock. But none of that matters for remote start. As you mentioned before, simply press the lock button, then hold the start button for 2-4 seconds. If that doesn't work, then take it to the dealer.
Does it start when you use the app?
