Step-by-Step Kia Connect Setup Guide

You only need three things to start the process: your smartphone, ability to download the Kia access app, and, of course, access to your Kia model. Follow these steps to simply set up Kia Connect on your vehicle.

  1. Either on the App Store or Google Play, depending on if you have an Apple or Android phone, search for the “Kia Access” app, download it, then log-in or create an account.
  2. From here, you’ll need to connect your vehicle to the app. This is done by entering your VIN into the app, and confirming through a verification code.
  3. Now it’s time to activate the system on your Kia. On the dashboard screen, select “Activate Kia Connect,” click that you have a verification code, then enter the one you got.
  4. On your phone, select that you have entered the verification code. And that’s it! The connection between your phone and vehicle has been verified.
