I think my dealer says around $65 if they order it but they said it never works well and discourage their customers from pursuing it, which seems believable as Kia stopped that feature in the latest model year...
This is very strange, not only did mine work for the entire 3 years I had the car, but once I washed my jeans with the remote inside, and it went through the washer and dryer and still worked fine when it came out. lol
