2014 Kia Cadenza
The 2014 Kia Cadenza is equipped with pushbutton start. The small bow, emergency override key uses the new U0001-U2500 code series. The sidewinder type key is shaped like a Lexus blank, but the size is .118" by .278". The Kia key blank part number is 81996 3T000.
The code series has 4 cuts on the left and 3 cuts on the right. The spacing is the same as the 2013-on Hyundai Equus that uses the new I0001-I2608 (eye) code series. Each of these code series has different depths. The 2013-on Hyundai Equus has a different emergency key blank.
Many lock manufacturers have restricted keys. Restricted keys do not have patent protection, but through a "gentleman's agreement," key blank manufacturers do not produce a key blank that will enter the lock manufacturer's keyway.
Re-engineered PowerPlex 2000
Kaba PowerPlex 2000 Series Pushbutton Access Control Locks have been re-engineered using Kaba's proprietary PowerStar™ technology to minimize the need to pump the outside lever in order to generate power. The new standalone PowerPlex 2000 utilizes super capacitor technology, enabling a lock to store power for up to 14 weeks with no activity. This added capability for most applications maintains sufficient power, being charged by just operating the outside lever in order to gain access.
The KABA PowerPlex 2000 Pushbutton Electronic Locks offer up to five authority levels: Master, Manager, Access User, Service and Maintenance levels. Maintenance Level is for uploading and downloading information; no access is granted. Up to 100 four- to eight-digit codes can be programmed. The audit trail retains the most recent 1,000 lock events including the use of the mechanical key override. Additional software fee is required to view audit events.
KABA PowerPlex 2000 Series Locks have a three-year warranty.
