Question about 2003 Kia Spectra
Hi, I recently moved from the States to Canada. I brought my 2003 Kia Spectra with me. I need to install a DRL conversion module in my car to comply with the Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Act. My Kia does not have a DRL system. The Canadian Kia dealer would charge me around $500 for parts and labour. I saw in several websites that I can install a module myself with less than $100. Could anybody advice me in the best option to install a DRL system in my car? If it is a conversion module, where can I buy it? Thanks a lot for your help.

This happened to me before a couple of times and it turned out that my husband sat in the passenger seat with his long legs and kicked the rod out of the hole that turns the vent from heat to ac. If you look up under the dash on the passenger side, you will see a gold rod that controls what I would call the damper. If that has come out of the hole that turns the damper from heat to ac, judt put it back in the hole where it belongs and it should start working again. I wish I could ecxplain it clearer. If when you are up under there looking and turn the switch from heat to ac and vice cersa, you should see the rod move, but you won't see it change the damper position.

DRL's can be added simply by adding a 20 amp fuse into an empty slot in the fuse box.

6. Place thermostat housing
7. Fill radiator with engine coolant

Checking the electrical diagram in any aftermarket service manual would show you exactly where to make changes if you are satisfied with using low beams instead of auxilliary lower wattage bulbs, the addition of a relay that would turn on with the ignition and then be out of circuit when you turn on the lights for night driving to avoid changing how the high-low beams and the flash function works wouldn't be that difficult.
Anyone who can read electrical diagrams could show you how and where to cut & splice and there may be an empty relay socket in the car's panel for mounting it. There are often unused positions because of options not installed when new.

It might have a partially blocked fuel line or ait intake supply.
Try to check the compression, it might be loosing compression when you demand the engine to move the vehicle.
