Hello, Im Ron . Im going to Try to Help you Here. First the Cooling Fan. The Cooling Fan has A Micro-Relay # 37 In the Fuse/Relay Box UNDER_-HOOD IN this type Circuit You Have 3 Step Process to Control the Fan, 1 is the Temperature Sensor, 2 Is the Relay, 3 is the Fan. When Engine Gets Up to Operating temp. 220 Degrees the Sensor Grounds out & signals ECM of Engine
Temp and ECM Tickles the Relay to Turn ON the Fan.

In your Case I would RULE OUT Poor + Terminal Connections @ Battery Accessory Cables. AND Poor - Terminal @ Battery & Or Body Ground
THEN Test the Fan By BYPASSING to it With a Test wire With A + wire to the + side of Fan this is to Make Sure it Works .
Some Techs. Replace Sensor and Relay as A Pair Sense the Two are Fairly Inexpensive, but usualy you can Hear & or Feel the Relay "CLICK" If None Replace it. Shift Lock, Theres A Soliniod at Shifter that Unlocks ti WHEN you Apply the BRAKE, it is Controled By the Brakelight Switch.

I Strongly Suggest That you Check All Harness's From Battery to Interior, & Fuse Box.
I Know this seems Wild But With Limited Resorces & Lititure to work from this Is Where I Go.

SOURCE: radiator fan not working replaced relay,temp

Check the wiring from the relay to the fan motor, and check the wiring from the fuse block. Basically check all wires that supply power to the fan motor, use a volt meter. Fan Relay (behind headlight, under battery) on the 2001 GC 4.0L are a piece of ****, I change mine almost yearly. The problem is their location, a high heat area prone to the elements. I understand that 2002 and newer, the location was changed and the problem solved. Relay might close the circuit when cold or at reasonable temps, but might open a circuit when it heats up, causing the problem.

SOURCE: 2001 Kia Sportage fuse 4 radiator fan?

Radiator fan fuse is fuse # 5 (40 amp/Green) located behind the interior fuse access panel on the left side of the instrument panel next to the steering column. Also, in the underhood Power distribution center, next to the air cleaner filter are two black fan relays: high speed (F) at the far left, second row down and a low speed, 1st one to the right on the bottom row.

I have a 2001 Kia Sportage and replaced the brake light switch. I have no brake lights when you mash the brake pedal but the tail lights work otherwise when put in park. What am I overlooking?


If the third brake light is working and just the two mains are not then it may be the turn signal switch that is the culprit here, the brake light circuits go through the switch.

Where is backup light switch on 01 impala


Backup Lamps
The B/U LAMP fuse in the RH I/P fuse block supplies battery positive voltage to the switch terminal of the backup lamps relay. The DIC/RKE fuse supplies battery positive voltage to the backup lamps relay coil terminal. When you place the gear selector lever in the REVERSE position, the powertrain control module (PCM) sends a class 2 message to the body control module (BCM). When these conditions occur, the BCM energizes the reverse lamp relay control circuit, closing the switch contacts, the current flows from the reverse lamp relay switch to the backup lamps. The backup lamps are grounded at G302.

There is alot involved in turn on the back up lights .
DTC B2552
Circuit Description
The body control module (BCM) controls the backup lamp relay. The BCM grounds the backup lamp relay control circuit which energizes the backup lamp relay.

2
Install a scan tool.
Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
With a scan tool, command the backup lamp relay ON and OFF.
Does the backup lamp relay turn ON and OFF with each command?
YES - Go to Diagnostic Aids
NO - Go to Step 3

DTC B2553
The body control module (BCM) controls the backup lamp relay. The BCM grounds the backup lamps relay control circuit which energizes the backup lamp relay.
Turn the ignition ON.
Shift the gear selector lever to the REVERSE position.
Do the backup lamps turn ON?
YES - Go to Testing for Intermittent Conditions and Poor Connections in Wiring Systems
NO - Go to Step 3
3

Connect a test lamp between the battery positive supply voltage circuit of the switched side of the backup lamp relay and ground.
Does the test lamp illuminate?
Before replacing parts you may not need , take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop .

Backup Lamps
The TURN SIG fuse in the console fuse block supplies battery positive voltage to park neutral position switch. When the gear selector lever is in the REVERSE position, power is supplied to both of the backup lamps. The backup lamps are grounded at G401 and G402.
Do you know what DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes are ?
DTC B2552
The body control module (BCM) controls the backup lamp relay. The BCM grounds the backup lamp relay control circuit energizing the backup lamp relay. The BCM connects directly to the center console fuse block with no external wiring between them.

Kia sportage cranks but seldom starts??


Have you checked the fuel pump relay to see if it is sending power to the pump ? The computer grounds the relay when the computer "sees" oil pressure or engine RPM.

No reverse lights when in reverse, all other lights working correctly. lamps ok.


most backup switches are connected on outside of transmission. they screw in, and have wires to it. its a good possibility that yours has failed. if its not a bad wire or a bad fuse. have a good day!!

2001 kia sportage tail lights and dash lights not working. Replaced "tail" fuse blown, keeps blowing.


Sounds like the wiring has a short to ground or the sockets for the lights are shorted out before reaching the bulbs.

Worn hot wire insulation against the negative body can cause this symptom, for example.
