Question about 2003 Kia Spectra

2 Answers

My 2006 Kia Spectra's windshield washer isn't working. When I pull the lever to start the washing I hear a couple of knocks to the passenger side dash area, but the washer doesnt work. I haven't seen any washer fluid spraying in the engine area. I have fluid and I don't hear the washer motor running. Do I need a new motor? Or is there a fuse that may have blown?

I have the same problem with my '06 Spectra 5. I haven't noticed the knocking sound though. The weird thing is my rear window washer works fine which leads me to believe that the washer pump is still OK but what do I know :D

If someone did some rewiring or connections there might be an error somewhere. If none was made, inspect the relays. Inspect first the relay box for physical damage such us loose or bad terminals or wires that are loose or has bad insulation. It may be a bad relay. Inspect the wiper switch inside the steering column for bad terminals or bad wiring.

The windshield washer line detached. How do you reattach it without removing the hood?


Needle nose, make sure that the washer nozzle itself has not broken off. if there is a hard piece of plastic inside of the rubber hose you will need to replace the washer nozzle.

Ineed to know where my camshaftsensor on a 2006 kia spectra 5 is located


The camshaft Position Sensor in a 2006 Kia Spectra is located in the cylinder head on the right side of the head near the front of the engine. (if you are standing at the passenger fender area, this will be on YOUR left on the side of the engine nearest the windshield.) (See Diagram)

NOTE: if you are trying to fix a cam sensor code, it should be noted that MANY cam sensor fault codes can be caused by things OTHER than a defective cam sensor. For example, loose timing belt components can cause erratic cam sensor readings and cause the computer to set a code for the cam sensor. Proper diagnosis should be performed.

Hi I have a Kia Spectra 2005 and despite the reservoir for windshield is full it does not work, pump probably or a fuse is broken, how can I sole it? Mihai


Is the fluid frozen? This is the season for that to happen. Make sure that -20 deg. F fluid is used or better. 32 deg. F fluid for summer will freeze at the pump in the Northern Hemisphere in the cold winter months.

If, you do have cold weather washer fluid, then the fuse can be checked in the fuse box, and the motor is likely integrated into the tank, and can be pulled out (if it's like a GM).

Good luck on this repair.

How do I change the headlight on a 2006 Kia Spectra?


Well, if it's the driver side (usually battery is on this side) - remove the battery. You should see the backing of the head light casing (two - three prong wiring harness/ may have two if brights are a seperate bulb). If only one, unscrew this couteclock wise, pull out old bulb, and insert new. Installation is reverse of removal.

Same with passenger side (remove anything that may be covering access to cover backing).

Please let me know if you need any further assistance.

Windshield washer fluid barely sprays then quits. Does not spran on rear window at all. Good fuse and can hear motor running. 2006 kia sorento


windshield washer hose could have a hole somewhere have some one run washer pump while you check under hood for leaks if you cant find any then its safe to assume that pump is worn out still turns but the pump suction is worn out, must be replaced.
