Hi

Before you turn out the light you should have a code read carried out just to make sure nothing sinister is going on with the management system.

If the car is running ok then the code will probably either pertian to the O2 sensor, the EVAP system, or a drop in catalytic efficiency, but this isn't set in stone, just the most popular scenarios.

Very best regards

Geordie

The relay (fuse type thing located under the hood) was good as well. If that is the case then the motor is the issue. or the switch itself.

You have already figured it out but don't know the answer <(^_^)> . It's the alternator.

Where are the headlight fuses?


Mitch, No fuse for the headlamps. Controlled by the IPM,(Intelligent integrated Platform Module) fuse box under dash, has a built in smart circuit breaker that trips. It should reset if the key is cycled, but if the short is still there it will open again.
Check the attached links, last link shows IPM.

2011 kia optima fog lights go on only when right blinker is on, just changed front side marker bulb and is still doing the same thing, blinking fast but no other lights are out.


fast blinking is a sign that the flasher relay has a fault , change that and i would expect the fog light issue will resolve as well , as i expect the flasher relay is trying to earth through a different circuit

YOU MEAN THE DOOR LIGHT SWITCH???? MOST LIKELY YOUR BATTRY WAS DRAINED BY THE DOME LIGHT BEEN ON ALL NIGHT OR ALL DAY. TURN ON YOUR HEADLIGHTS AND CHECK IF THEY WORK OR ARE DIMMED. THATS A SING OF DEAD BATTERY.
