Question about Kia Sportage

1 Answer

I have a 2001 Kia Sportage.  Two days ago I noted that my horn was fading.  I replaced the fuse.  However, the horn will not blow.  When I depress it I just get a clicking sound.  What else can I do to get my horn blowing again?

SOUND LIKE YOU HAVE FAULT IN THE TCM OR PCM.THE TRANSMISSION SHIFT SOLENOID FAULTY. YOU NEED A GARAGE OR TRANSMISSION SHOP TO USE DIAGNOSTIC EQUIPMENT TO LOOK FOR TRANSMISSION FAULT CODE SINCE TRANSMISSION IS TCM AND PCM CONTROLLED.

2001 kia sportage . transmission does not change


Popular Problems Checks
1. Car will not go into gear:
  • Gear selector cable has failed
  • Brake lock solenoid/brake light swtich has failed not allowing the gear selector to move out of "Park"
  • Excessively low transmission fluid (note: if car is operated for an extended amount of time with low fluid level the transmission will fail prematurely)
  • Shorted electrical component not allowing the PCM to control the transmission. Example: shorted fuse
  • Flex plate (flywheel) is broken completely not transferring engine power to the transmission.
2. Car goes into gear but then fades out of gear or is slipping while driving:
  • Transmission fluid is low
  • Transmission clutch discs or bands are worn out or burned
  • Faulty transmission shift solenoid.
3. Car goes into gear but does not shift out of first:
  • Blown fuse to the PCM controller
  • Faulty vehicle speed sensor (VSS)
  • Shorted second gear control solenoid
  • Faulty transmission controller (PCM)

2001 sportage kia--- just got motor job 2months ago...ac has stopped working...and rpm gauge doesnt work and is pulling hard....Is there a fuse that could have blowed and needs replacing? retta smith


The speedometer and rpm gauges are operated by sensors instead of cables on your model. It is very possible that either your sensors are not hooked up to your tranny or that they are in need of replacing. Check all fuses.

Horn won't blow even after replacing fuse.


Clean all the connections at the horn. Check for power at the horn. If there is power at the horn, check for a good earth. You may even fit a new earth cable. Failing these solutions, you may need to get a replacement horn.
