If you have the Warranty and Maintence Manual on the inside of the cover is the Owner and Vehicle details, you will see the Immobiliser code there. hope this helps

Check all your fuses.We fixed our immobilizer problems by checking fuses and found we had a blown fuse in fuse box under dash.It was a number 15 fuse with stop on it.Someone told us it is a brake fuse and the immobilizer is connected somehow.Ours is a kia sportage 1977 so dont know if this will help at all.Worth looking at your fuses though. Good luck

My Kia spotage get hot when setting still


you might need to replace the fan clutch or your thermostat. The fan may not be spinning hard enough to cool the motor or spinning at all, lift the hood turn the car on and see if the fan is coming on.

1996 spotage kia p0422


P0422 Main Catalyst Efficlency Below Threshold (Bank 1) The catalyst’s efficiency is demonstrated by its ability to oxidize CO and hydrocarbon emissions. The Engine Control Module (ECM) compares the output signals of the front and rear oxygen sensors to determine whether the output of the rear sensor is beginning to match the output of the front oxygen sensor. Air/fuel mixture compensation keeps the frequency of the front oxygen sensor high due to the changes from rich-to-lean comvustio. The catalyst causes the rear oxygen sensor to have a lower frequency. As the catalyst wears, the rear oxygen sensor’s signal trace begins to match the front oxygen sensor’s signal trace. That is because the catalyst becomes saturated with oxygen and cannot use the oxygen to convert hydrocarbon and CO into H₂O and CO₂ with the same efficiency as when it was new. A completely worn catalyst shows a 100% match between the frequency of the front and rear sensors. The ECM sets P0422 if the average of caculated oscillation size of rear HO2S value is higher than threshold value during predetermined time.

Radiator


u just don't hook up anything to the cooler fittings on the radiator, it installs just like a standard radiator. All after market replacement radiators have fittings for automatic trans cooler lines, they don't make a manual trans radiator, u just use the auto trans one.

My 1998 spotage will not shift into overdrive untill motor starts to warm up. Is there a fix for this or is this normal. detjah


I was just told by a Kia dealership that is the design of the vehicle. It will not shift into overdrive until the vehicle has warmed up. The guy who told me this says his Toyota does exactly the same. So you don't have a problem. Your Kia is working as it is designed to work. Hope this helps!!
