There are products available which run on a laptop that will allow you to read the DTC codes on your vehicle. There are also versions which come with a handheld scanner. Try ebay. They are relatively inexpensive and often much cheaper than having a diagnostic done at a dealer. When you find out your code then look for a Kia forum online for help with the issue. What problems are you having?

Is the check engine light on? Even if it is not you should have the codes read. Take it to auto parts store and get them to read the codes. It may have stored codes that will tell you what is wrong. Tell us the codes and we will try to help.
a Honda Saturn. and zero post, i wonder why.
the Saturn (and honda) FSM both tell you how to diagnose all DTCS.
why not read that.
and btw, the codes never tell you what parts is bad but rather ,they only tell you which tests fails.
the tech will test the sensor and see that its good, (say) then finds the connector bad, saving $200 in useless parts.
RTM , READ the FSM, and read what the test does.
and get the freeze frame and see what is going on.
i think that it is a code in the tcm otherwise transmission problem such as speed sen or input out sensors for trans or just to tell you to check transmission codes for this your scanner cant read you might have to go to dealer to read trans codes
You have an error code activated. You can buy a code read which will also turn off the code or take it to a repair shop that will read the code and tell you what needs to be done to fix it. Most shops charge to read the code I belive that AMMCO advertises that they will read the code for free. Most dealers will chare about $30 to $50 to read the code. Something as simple as a bad gas cap could cause the light to come on.
Who read your codes should have told you what they mean ,IDM codes and boost calibration high,now next time you pay autoxone to read codes dont pay them unless they tell you what they are ,Also consider yourself lucky that you can read a code ,try doing it with a europeon built car for the europeon market ,THEY ARE ALL ENCRYPTED
