Question about 1997 Kia Sephia
The light that indicates a door is open on my 1997 KIA Sephia remains lit when all doors have been closed. How can I fix that? Do I need to cut a wire? Run a new wire, or what?
lol. remove the door panel, and use some white lithium grease in a spray can and spray all of the rods and components in the door, and work the door handle back and forth, this should free it all up....

I have never heard of something sensable as an access hatch. On a truck it's sometimes easier to lift the truck bed off of the truck instead of lowering the tank but you obviously don't have that luxury. I wouldn't cut a hole in your vehicle either because not only are you creating a week point, but a place for water and dirt intrusion along with a fresh start for rust. Most likely the fuel pump is a submersable pump and accessed by lowering the fuel tank very slowly until you can reach in and disconnect the fuel lines. Make sure you open the gas cap and disconnect the battery to depresurise the fuel. Don't lower it to far or you will snap the lines off. You will also need to disconnect the electrical connection at the pump. I use a floor jack and a 2x6 the length of the tank or as close as possible to distrubute the load and support / lower the tank down slowly.

Following the fuel line is always the way to find the filter. It is just forward of the passenger side rear wheel. It is connected to three lines with quick disconnect fittings. You don't need any special tools to remove them, just push in the flat buttons on either side of the connectors. When you put the lines back on, just push them on firmly, and then check to see if they are all the way on by pulling them as if to remove them again. Good luck and hope this helps.

Sounds like it maybe in one of the door switches. Role all the windows down turn on the ignition switch, get someone to sit in the car and watch the light. Close all the doors then grab the door and push and pull hard on the door. If the light flickers or come on the problem will be in that door switch. If neither happened jiggle and or tap on the switch for dome light. This seems a little far-fetched but change the bulb just in case the element in the bulb is broke and sometimes it makes connection.
