Kia Engine Remote Start Kits

Looking to add a remote engine start to your Kia? This article provides a list of remote start systems available for Kia vehicles.

These engine start systems fit Kia Optima, Sorento, Cadenza, K900, Soul, Niro, Sportage, and Sedona. A Kia remote start kit allows you to start your engine from a distance, which is a nice feature if you want to warm up your vehicle (or cool down the interior).

Most OEM remote start kits for Kia can be purchased online. They are plug-and-play and do not require any wire splicing. We recommend direct fit kits as they fully integrate with your Kia, even in a vehicle with a keyless entry system.

Aftermarket Kia Remote Auto Start Kits
