SOURCE: Repair Manual for Kia Sportage.
I just purchaced a 2000 Sportage and am having the same problem. I did find that Autozone.com has a free online manual that you can view and print sections from. I would rather have a book at my side when I repair my car, but until somebody comes up with one we are stuck with the online services.

Rule of thumb...unless you get a better answer: look for a couple of wires on a small plate that is in the airflow of the fan on the heater/ac unit. The resistor pack is always air cooled by the fan.

did you check the switch to the control cluster ? incase you dont know what im talkin about the switch that turns it on and off and adjusts speed? if its not that then do you have a blown fuse becouse the blower moter has an independant fuse some times in the fuse box there may be 2 1 in the car and the other under the hood try that let me know if its fixed

You most likely have air in the cooling system.You would need to bleed the cooling system of air.There should have bleed screws near water neck,or thermostat.Do this cold.Remove the radiator cap and fill full.Then start the engine and loosen the screws and watch for nothing but coolant to flow out(no air or bubbles).When you are sure the air is gone out of the cooling system,shut the bleeder screw off,and fill radiator up and test to see that engine runs cool,and you have heat at all speeds and rpm s.The electric cooling fan should come on at a tempuratue of about 215 or so.But just as important,the cooling fan should cut off at a lower tempurature.If the cooling fan does not do this,you still have air in the system.If you can not get the air out this way,then do this.Remove the radiator cap and reservoir cap and fill them both up full.The reservoir needs to be over the fill mark a good deal.Replace the caps.Start the engine with ac and heat off.Let it run until the engine gets to about 212 or 215 degrees and shut the engine off.Wait about 30 minutes and check the reservoir to see if the coolant has dropped.It should have dropped.If the reservoir has dropped or not ,do this again and again untill the reservoir drops in coolant level,and engine temp is good(fan goes on and goes off).Remember to refill the reservoir as needed as it drops,not to run out of coolant.

There is no real easy way to do it....not like the older cars..
CAUTION After disconnecting the negative battery cable, wait for at least 10 minutes for the air bag module to deplete its stored energy.
CAUTION Place the air bag module in a safe location with the front facing upward.
NOTE If may be necessary to mark the steering wheel to steering column alignment.
