Is there anyway to save the settings options so that it doesn't reset to default after the K5 is turned off and then on again. I would like to have my blinkers flash 5 times instead of 3 when doing a quick press of the turn signals. However I find that every time I re-enter my car it has been set back to the 3 flashes. It's not a big deal but if the option is there why won't it save my preference?

They do save those settings. No way Kia expects you to reset that stuff every time.
I like the 5 blinks setting, too. It’s always set to 5 blinks after I changed it.
If it keeps reverting to default it needs service.

Well for the past month and a half I have had to redo it every single time I turn the car on if I feel like having the 5 flashes. I don't even want to take it to the dealership to fix. I'll stick with the 3 flashes because you know what happens after a trip to the dealership... they fix one thing and another thing goes wrong not long after lol.

Another thing I was wondering about... the auto start. Is there anyway to set it to a preference? Whenever I auto start I notice it is set at 72° with the outside air on. I would like to set it to always start at 69° with recycled air on. Thanks.

I may be wrong, but I think 72° is the default. If you have the UVO Link app on your phone you can adjust the climate settings in there.

Thanks I'll have to give it a try. Didn't know the UVO app could do that. Heck! Didn't know there is a UVO app smh...

Well I am still having the issue. Set it twice today to 5 flashes. Got out of the car and when I returned to turn it on again it reset to the default 3 flashes. Guess I'll just live with it.

It might be good to have the dealer look at it, as was already mentioned. It's a new car and shouldn't be having issues, so they should fix it. I've not had a problem with my K5 failing to retain any settings.
