    Just waiting on delivery now, the FOB delivers Thursday and the replacement key insert should be here Friday.

    @Canfail you're brilliant for coming up with this idea. Looking forward to what you find out.

    Was not the first to think of this but happy to help the community. I have 5 local KIA dealerships and so far one will not even attempt it but I do have one oddly excited and interested in experimenting. My hope is that it programs exactly like the K900...hope.

    Hit a substantial road block and I’m not sure how to overcome.

    The dealership called me back and informed me that KIA requires a K900 certified tech to perform any work related to the K900. This includes accessing the computer scanning tool.

    Of course the next dealer near me who is a K900 dealer currently has a tech in training with a scheduled graduation date 6 months from now.

    //Update
    Pretty confident this project is dead in the water. Bummer

    I don't see what the problem is, as the work that is being performed is NOT on a K900 its on a Stinger. The scanning tool (which is the same for both the K900 and the Stinger) they need to use is one for the Stinger. If the scanning tool picks up the signal from the K900 FOB and allows it to register with the Stinger's security system then, the K900 FOB works, if it doesn't pick up the signal then it will not work.

    I’m relatively new to the Kia scene and do not have solid contacts in the service area. Which unfortunately none seem interested in skirting the K900 situation.

    If you’re interested (or anyone else really) and have a service contact, I can send you this fob free of charge for you to experiment and see if it’s a viable option?

    It does look slick though.

    @Canfail Spoke to the guys at Westside Kia, closest dealer to me, about this project and they are 100% on board with this, I even spoke to the tech that will be doing the programming and he is cool with trying.

    If you want you can send the fob to me and if it doesn't work I'll gladly return it to you. I can cover shipping both ways, if that helps.

    Let me know.
