Check Engine Light On

2003 Sorento EX running fine a friend used it yesterday and check engine light came on and has stayed on, why? My friend did not drive it hard because we just had a snow storm she only drove it 50 miles round trip and it came on on her way home, she called me asking if it had ever come on before and it hasn't, we just had it serviced about 200 miles ago it has 70,540 miles on the vehicle could it just need to be reset or is something more wrong with my vehicle?

My 2005 Kia Sorento, temp gauge is midway between half and high. Just started, cooland and oil are fine. Heater works fine. Belts are good. What could be wrong. Check engine light came on this morning too


May have a cooling fan that has malfunctioned mounted on the radiator. Check under the hood for a fan or two mounted on the inside or outside the radiator. If you find one or two, start the car and let idle watching for fan(s) to kick on when thermostat gets hot.

I have a 2003 kia sorento ex. when i turn light switch on, nothing happens. I have no tail lights or fog etc. only front running lights. All new bulbs and fuses are fine. Brake lights work.


Hi,

I drive a kia sorento and i have had a similar problem. I have a hitch on the back and the electrical connection was bad and kept blowing fuses. I removed the electrical hookup. Easy to do as it is a plug conected to the harness of your vehicle. Located underneath your vehicle just above the rear wheel well on the passenger side. Your fuse panel is located under the hood of your vehicle next to your battery. Remove fuses one by one and check for any that are blown. I hope this helps.

I have a 03's sorento and this is quite a common promblem with these cars. First there has been a recall for these cars, if you havn't got it done, get it done, It's free of charge. The recall is the Camshaft Position Sensor. It will cause the car to run unstable, break and engine stall and causes accident and the engine light will come on. Secondly I had the same promblem that you were having, engine was shaking and sputtering and check engine light came on. What I found out is it is the EVAP Emission control system leak large bank 1 & bank 2 system too lean sensor problem. Had to take it to the shop to get the mass sensor replaced. It was a $900.oo + job, I recommend you taking it to the shop to get it diagnos to see what code it is giving you so you would know what exactly you are dealing with.

If the computer doesn't detect any further issues during it's next several test cycles, the light should turn off. A test cycle may not be performed unless all the conditions it requires are met (been running for a certain period of time, engine temp, etc). On some cases, can take a week or two to turn off. Otherwise you can get an OBD-II scanner and manually turn off the light if you don't want to go to the dealer
