I have a K-5 and was notified by this site (back in September I think) about a firmware update for the K-5.
Does this firmware update fix any of these AF issues for the K-5?

Typically, info from Pentax about any firmware update is not very detailed. I don't think we've ever had an update that specifically documented a global change to AF, even though some users claimed that some of the earlier updates (1.12, 1.13) improved AF performance. We are now on 1.15.

Also, bear in mind that not all K-5 users have/had AF problems, so "fixing AF issues" may not apply in some cases.

My AF started acting up when I went to the 1.13 update. Does anybody know what the cost is for this repair since mine is outside of warranty?

We don't know what "acting up" means in your case, but a FW update wouldn't break your AF.

Consider the possibility that you may need to (re)perform AF Fine Adjustment.

I've done that. Search K5 focus drift. I shot 9.1 aperture with my fa*24 and the picture was flat. It was a family pic that nobody was in focus.
