SOURCE: green indicator light on 1998 kia sportage

That light sounds like a differential lock or 4-wheel drive. This is usually found in 4-wheel drive and all-wheel drive vehicles. Being the light is "GREEN" and not amber or red tells me that it's not an abnormal problem.

Look around your dashboard or gearshifter for a button labeled 4x4 HI, 4x4 LO, 4x2 HI. sport/off road button, or a second, smaller shifter. Switch them around a little, and if it is a 4x4 selector, be sure when you drive on paved roads to have it set to 4x2 HI. 4x4 HI should only be used if you get stuck to help you get out (snow/mud) and 4x4 LO is only for off road driving (trail blazing/rock climbing/4-wheeling/mud bogging,etc.)

Also, check for any switches labled "DIFF LOCK" or 'AXLE LOCK". In most cars a green light is normal operations.

I hope I could help you find a solution to your problem.

SOURCE: the Abs light came on and will not go out after i

This is just a consequential event. the ABS sensor module was probably going out and decide the trigger the alarm at the same time you initiated the hard brake during travel. replacing or resetting this sensor module Will fix this issue. the light will go off as well.


Please rate and god bless.

SOURCE: parking brake for 2002 kia sportage

The park brake is the same on all vehicles. Usually on the driver side when you follow the cable, there will be an adjuster in the middle of the line. Turn to the right to tighten and left to loosten.

SOURCE: losing brake fluid(2001 kia sportage)

Check the rear wheel cylinders if you have drum brakes on the rear. Check the master cylinder cap to be sure it's on right & snug. Use D.O.T. 3 fluid,not synthetic. If you're losing fluid there's a reason. Check the front brake pads & slides for the calipers,could be frozen with rust & eating up the pads. Fluid would seem low if the pads are shot.

SOURCE: have changed the master brake cylinder on kia

bleed it again--but use gravity this time open mastercylinder and keep it full while opening the bleeder valves at each wheel until no more bubbles come out. the other option is using a power bleeder at a shop--the old process of pumping up the pedal and opening and closing the bleeder will still leave air bubbles in the line this is why power bleeding is the best process but is done with a machine at a shop for a price--side note make sure the brake fluid being used has not been shaken -look inside bottle if bubbles are present suspended in the fluid do not use it

2001 kia sportage will brake lit switch cau the truck stall whil driving


Yes, If your idle RPM is too low it can kill the engine due to the high current of the brake lights will cause a stall.

Most cars use an RPM idle of 750 to 775 RPM. Check your manual then increase your idle a little.
Hope this helps.

Where is the pressure regulator for the front brakes on a 2002 kia sportage


there is no pressure regulator in the front brakes system. The harder you press the pedal the more braking action. There is an equaliser in the rear brake line to prevent rear lock up under moderate brakes and this is all over ridden by the ABS system when it sensors a locked wheel situation.

If you don't have any brake lines leaking, change the master cylinder, bench bleed the new one then bleed the blakes, starting with the right rear, left rear, right front, then left front. If the booster was gone, you would hear air leaking out of it when you pressed the pedal down.
