SOURCE: Check Engine light
that code definition is "Evap high purge flow fault". It means you may have a problem with the evaporative system. this system routes fuel fumes back to the fuel tank. If you want to try and clear this code, find the radio code for your car and then disconnect the battery for 30 seconds. Reconnect the battery and the check engine light should be out. You will then need the radio code to reset your car stereo. the check engine light may stay off if the condition was a transient one. If not, the light will come back on after you drive the car two drive cycles. That is: two starts, warm ups and shut downs. If the light returns, have a mechanic check it out.

Typical code readers (OBDII) won't touch the airbag lights. Neither will disconnecting the battery and waiting. If the airbag light is flashing, there's a code involved. The system may or may not work when needed. If it's on steady, the system is failed and will not deploy when needed. Typically, it's a connector in the various harnesses involved. Unfortunately, the Kia shop manuals just say "replace everything" so they're no help. The dealer has the very expensive code reader to read & reset the airbag light. In other words, $$$.

Engine torque signal malfunction
Threshold Value ~ Circuit continuity: Open or shorted
Enable Conditions ~ NA
Time Requirements ~ Continuous
MIL Illumination ~ No MIL illumination
1)Open between TCM (C221-41) and ECM (C254-68).
2)Short to B+ or GND between C221-41 and C254-68.
With ignition off, disconnect C254 from ECM and C221 from TCM. Measure resistance between C221-41 and C254-68 (less than 1 ohm).
Is resistance as specified?
Go to step 2.
Locate source of open or high resistance and repair as necessary.
Measure resistance between C254-68 and GND (infinite resistance).
Is resistance as specified?
Go to step 3.
Locate source of short to GND and repair as necessary.
Turn ignition on and measure voltage at C254-68 (0v).
Is voltage as specified?
Thoroughly check for loose, bent or corroded terminals in circuit than go to step 4.
Locate source of short to B+ and repair as necessary.
Clear codes and return vehicle to original condition. Verify any repairs by driving vehicle with KIA Data Pro connected to OBD-II connector and monitoring for pending codes (refer to section 3 of the KIA Data Pro Generic OBD-II Program Card reference manual).
