The most common cause of this would be an engine ignition misfire, if that is the case the Check Engine waring light should be on and blinking when the misfire corrs.

SOURCE: fuel pump 1997 kia sephia

I have never heard of something sensable as an access hatch. On a truck it's sometimes easier to lift the truck bed off of the truck instead of lowering the tank but you obviously don't have that luxury. I wouldn't cut a hole in your vehicle either because not only are you creating a week point, but a place for water and dirt intrusion along with a fresh start for rust. Most likely the fuel pump is a submersable pump and accessed by lowering the fuel tank very slowly until you can reach in and disconnect the fuel lines. Make sure you open the gas cap and disconnect the battery to depresurise the fuel. Don't lower it to far or you will snap the lines off. You will also need to disconnect the electrical connection at the pump. I use a floor jack and a 2x6 the length of the tank or as close as possible to distrubute the load and support / lower the tank down slowly.

SOURCE: Where is the fule filter located on a 1997 Kia

Following the fuel line is always the way to find the filter. It is just forward of the passenger side rear wheel. It is connected to three lines with quick disconnect fittings. You don't need any special tools to remove them, just push in the flat buttons on either side of the connectors. When you put the lines back on, just push them on firmly, and then check to see if they are all the way on by pulling them as if to remove them again. Good luck and hope this helps.

SOURCE: 1997 kis sephia wire harness

the best way to go about this is to buy the wiring harness adaptor for your car. it plugs into your factory wiring plug, and the wires from the harness adaptor are color-coded to match the colored wires on your stereo. just match them, splice them, and your done.
If you already cut the harness, then I reccommend reattatching the wires that you cut, and just getting the wiring harness adaptor. trust me, for only like ten or fifteen bucks, it will save you alot of hassle. if thats not an option, then the best thing to do would be to get a digital volt/ohm meter. use that to find your constant, switched, and ground. you can also check for continuity to find speaker wires. you can pick one up at an auto parts store for fairly cheap. if you need more info on how to use the meter, and what to check for, then contact me through this site, or repost. ill be glad to clarify anything for you. good luck...

Check your battery main wires that the terminals are clean and tight, check for CEL codes, check to make sure you are in park if it's an automatic tranny. Check your neutral safety switch if it's a manual shift tranny. Get a repair book for your model it will help diagnosing this.
