I need to reset the anti theft system in this 2005 Kia Sorento.
The auto entry key would not work so we did manual and set everything off, now I do not know how to reset. Please help! I unhooked the battery to try to restart and that made things worse. It says there is a override button under dash, but I cannot seem to find one. I need to know how to reset set this thing I need my car. I have kids and need to get to work. I am sure it is simple, but I cannot seem to get it. Please help me reset this anti theft system.

Hey DENISE3634

to reset the alarm system roll up the windows and exit the car, next lock the door using the key and walk away for 30 minutes, then unlock the car using the key on the driver's door, this will disarm the alarm system. If that doesn't work try a hard reboot please follow this guide.

Please run down this guide and report back
