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.

Code number p1624 is MIL Request Signal from TCM to ECM. which means malfunction indication light(MIL) is requesting a signal from your engine control module(ECM) or Transmission control module(TCM) i would reccomend u take it to the dealership to get it checked out.

SOURCE: losing brake fluid(2001 kia sportage)

Check the rear wheel cylinders if you have drum brakes on the rear. Check the master cylinder cap to be sure it's on right & snug. Use D.O.T. 3 fluid,not synthetic. If you're losing fluid there's a reason. Check the front brake pads & slides for the calipers,could be frozen with rust & eating up the pads. Fluid would seem low if the pads are shot.

SOURCE: 2001 Kia Sportage: 3 of the 4 windows will not

I have a 99 Kia Sportage that had the exact same problem. You can fix the switches without having to spend ANY money to replace them! You first have to remove the door panel. Disconnect the wires going to the switch and then remove the switch from the panel. Remove all the screws from the botoom of the switch, including the ones holding the metal clips. Then carefully pry each side upwards from the locking tabs and pull the switch apart. BE CAREFUL not to lose the little metal rockers inside the switch! Now all you have to do is clean all the contacts and rockers with a brass wire brush, or fine sanpaper, (or even a good ink eraser will work). Then put the switch back together, reinstall it, and test it out! You'll be back in business and didn't spend a dime! I did this with my 98 Ford Windstar, too.

Pasenger side door windows will not operate. Front one stuck open


you need to check the wire harness from the vehicle to the door for broken wires.the harness that goes through the door post and into the door gets a lot of flexing and will eventually break the wires in two.if this is not the case ,you may just need to replace the switch.

Driver power window problem


On my 2000 Durango, I found that the plastic cable guides had broken and fallen to the bottom of the door. This allowed the cable to lose tension which basically disconnected the window from the regulator. If you can hear the regulator motor run (power windows) when you press the window switch, then the regulator is good. Remove the door trim panel screws, pull off the door lock handle, pull the trim panel away slightly, and disconnect the plastic retainer from the door latch linkage.Then unlock the wiring connectors and remove them. Now the trim panel can be removed. Peel the plastic seal from the inner door. Now you can see inside the door and figure out what happened. A mechanic's mirror will help. Replacement window regulators are available from a number of sources; the cable and/or guides are a dealer item.
