Question about 1998 Kia Sportage

1 Answer

Stereo gets no power

So, my stock stereo on my 1998 Kia Sportage wasn't powering up. No biggie, I no longer had the code to unlock the thing so it wasn't worth bothering. It stopped working after I pulled it apart to see if I can throw in a stereo my friend gave me. When I plugged the stock stereo back in - nada.

So, I did some research and get my wiring diagrams and color codes and did an excellent job of pulling everything apart and slapping in my friend's old Pioneer. I was so proud of myself because I did a very thorough job. However...

There is an extra black wire. Perhaps a second grounding wire? It snapped onto the back of the stock stereo. Now, I put that wire onto the stock stereo when I threw it all back in. Is it possible that wire was not securely fastened? Or would it be something else that kept it from turning on?

Now that I have the Pioneer in instead, do I need to strip that extra black wire and add it to the other grounding wire that's already hooked up as part of the other 12 wires???

Fob still won't work after new battery and nothing wrong with the contact inside, do not hae original code for the Kia sportage 1998 so what is the next best thing ,to do?


When replacing the key fob battery there is no reprogramming required! If the key fob was working prior to the battery replacement then it would point to the contacts not being correct! Remove key fob battery and start again!

2002 kia sportage airbag light flashing 1 -3 code, possible low voltage to accessories, vehicle lacked power after 20 miles of driving??


first thing to check, how is your battery? Are the battery posts clean? next check your fuses. replace as needed. sometimes if an aftermarket stereo has been added, the wront power cord may have been splice. need to get the exact coce and find out what it means. i have never heard of a 1-3 code, usualy there are in the form of T0222 or T444 or something close to that.
hope this helps a bit, the actual error code would help quite a bit

I don't have the radio code for the original car stereo. I called KIA and they told me its , 1 1 1 1 , well they were wrong , wrong , wrong ,wrong. LOL any one have a code 1997 Kia Sportage


The same thing happened to me with the same car and model, the dealer gave me 1111 for the code which didn't work. I ended up calling the Kia Costumer service (1-800-333-4542). They gave me the right code after I gave them the VIN number.
To get rid of the "Hold" code, leave the radio on for more than an hour and the "Code" sign will come back up.

Timing belt broke on 1998 kia sportage, need the correct points


Hi, Just to clarify and clear things up, the motor used in the 1998 to 2002 Kia Sportage is actually the Mazda FE3 engine and it is a NON-INTERFERENCE engine.

For any an all repair information on any Kia vehicle produced you can access the KGIS system (Kia Global Information System), just go to www.kiatechinfo.com and create and account (its completely FREE). After you do this you will have access to all the Kia Shop Manuals, DTC Manuals, Recall information for your vehicle and more.

I just had the same problem with my Sportage and found all the information that I needed through KGIS. Hope this helps and good luck on fixing your Sportage.

How do you remove Audio-CD player from a 2002 Kia Sportage


after you remove all the screws from the dash you have to get down to a section by the pedals and remove something like the airbag to get at the last part of the dash apart. then you need to unplug the mirror and back wiper switches (opt i think). then you have access to your radio. These are all things i gathered from watching the guy at futureshop do, it was about $100 and now I don't have fm radio. but I am now going to try it on my own.
