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.

    How do I remove the switch on a 2007 Kia Sportage Heater Blower Motor Fan?


    A Chiltons/Haynes repair manual for you make/model/year will lead you through the process. Have you tried replacing the fuse?

    2000 kia sportage, blower fuse location


    Let's start with the passenger compartment fuse box. If you checked the 30A HEATER fuse the blower motor should run at various speeds as you operate the blower switch. If you checked the 10A REAR WIPER fuse (!), and also checked the 30A ADD (?) fuse in the engine compartment fuse relay box, turning on the air conditioner should operate the A/C relay to turn on the condenser fan motor. If this doesn't solve your problem, you'll have to trace power through the various circuits.

    Heater blower motor.,Highspeed only works..problem??


    9 out of 10 times its the heater fan resistor doing this. it has wires that corresponed to diffreent speed settings for heater fan. the resistor is beside the blower motor, Your Kia Sportage Blower Motor Resistor controls the heating equipment in the vehicle by opening and closing the fan motor. The Kia Sportage Blower Motor Resistor allows the heating and climate control system to control the speed of the vehicle's cooling fan. its under the passenger side glove box. undo 2 screws and disconnect the electrical connector. thats it!!

    Blower motor speed not working


    This is usually due to 1 of 3 possible problems.

    1. Bad blower motor resistor - attaches to blower motor and regulates fan speeds. Not uncommon to lose 1 speed at a time until you get stuck with only 1 speed
    2. Bad blower motor
    3. Bad heater control module - less likely but still possible the module is bad and the whole unit requires replacing

    Replaced blower motor in my 2001 kia sportage ex, fan only works on high. Any suggestions?


    It could be the blower motor resistor, the high position feeds full 12 volt power directly to the blower motor. All lower settings route through the blower motor resistor. It is usually located under the passenger side dash, not far from the blower motor. Two screws secure it to the heater box.

    I have a 2000 sportage. The heater fan does not


    It may be the blower motor, or it may be the blower resistor. Check for power at the blower motor. If power present with system on and blower has good ground, motor bad. If no power check blower resistor in air box prior to blower motor. If power on input side but nothing coming out to blower change resistor.
