SOURCE: remove factory radio

This is one that you can stare at all day. the trim pieces that include the air vents (usually woodgrain) will come off and expose the screws that hold the radio in. They are held in by spring clips, a gentle pry will get you started. Here is a website that shows how to remove one for a cell phone mount: http://www.bracketron.com/main/xmain_landing_page.php You may have to take the climate controll screws out to get the radio out far enough to reach the plugs on the back. You should be able to figure out the rest. good luck, and be gentle.. the trim is getting cheaper and cheaper, and is really easy to break.

SOURCE: crankshaft sensor for 2004 kia sorento

The above information about the sensor being located at the top of the motor to the passenger side of center is bogus. That is only the pig tail plug in. The actual sensor pig tail continues down below, underneath the plastic lower timing belt cover, on the front of the motor, just above the crankshaft timing gear.

It is a very involved process of removing and replacing. You will have to remove all of the belts, the front timing belt covers, (upper and lower). You will also have to remove the front bracket that is mounted to the front of the block, which serves as the mount for the power steering pump, the alternator and the A/C compressor.You will also have to remove the crankshaft pulley. You cannot remove the plastic lower timing belt cover unless you remove all of these things first. The sensor is located underneath the lower cover. It has two bolts that hold it in place. You will have to remove these two bolts.

The crankshaft pulling bolt is a right handed thread and loosens by turning counter clockwise. The pulley will slip off but is a very tight fit. Do not try to turn it while removing it as there is a small pin that keeps it aligned to one position. Use a small ball pine hammer to tap it loose.

It is also a good idea to remove the electric cooling fan shroud that is mounted to the inside side of the radiator and the radiator hoses to give yourself more room to work. It has only two bolts at the top holding it in place. And then slips into two retaining clips at the bottom. Lifting it will pull it out of these retaining clips.

When you remove the small bypass hose located at the top of the radiator , to the passenger side, be careful not to break off the small nipple protruding out of the radiator tank. It is plastic and will break easily if you try to pull the rubber bypass hose from it. This will have to be taken to a radiator shop to have repaired if you accidentally break this off. Be sure to carefully loosen the hose from this nipple before trying to pull it off.

And one more thing, if you go to that much trouble to replace this sensor, it is a good idea to go ahead and replace the timing belt as well. It is a maintenance item and you will have to go through the same process to replace it as well. Do it once and do it all.

I hope this helps.

SOURCE: dome light dosen't work the dioed needs replacing

The diode for the interior dome light is located behind the driver's side kick panel. You have to remove the kick panel or get access to the wires behind the panel. The diode is located in the wrapped wires just to the left of the fuse box area. When you feel around the wrapped wires with your fingers, you will feel a small hard rectangular plastic piece behind the tape wrapping the wires. Carefully cut the tape at the spot and locate the diode. Remove the diode and replace with a new one (about $13-18 at Kia dealer) and test. Retape with electrical tape and replace kick panel and you are done. About a 15 minute job.

SOURCE: I am changing the spark plugs on my 2004 Kia sorento

Be careful there.. If you remove the Throttle Position Sensor TPS or the throttle Cable, the engine light will come on because there is a certain setting that needs to be done to ensure accurate emission control.

Where do I find the audio fuse for a 2007 Kia Sorento


http://www.kia.ca/content/ownership/ownersmanual/2007_sorento_owners_manual_en.pdf

diagrams are right in the OWNERS MANUAL!

click on the link & goto page6-9

it'll show you the 2 fuse panels: one on the driver side under the hood release & another in the engine bay

also when you do pry off the cover of the fuse panel, it's also labeled there

OK, back to the audio fuse location : its the fusebox in the engine bay, from the owners manual page 6-10 it's a 30Amp fuse next to the horn fuse, by the 7 smaller relays in that box

2007 kia sorento aerial is stuck in the down position


It's probably bent or the motor is broken(motor itself or fuse). You should try getting it replaced. An electrician could tell you more or a service shop.

How do you reset memory fuse in 2005 kia sorento


No such thing as resetting anything,certainly not a fuse,that is silly just to hear it

You need a dealer to resolve the issues you created & have
them explain how you get the radio & other items working,so you don't do it again

My kia sorento 2006 limited edition bought as used .The problem is the radio can get so much station .It's antenna located behind rear view mirror on windshield.Please


These types of antenna have poor reception, but should pickup local channels. Check the back of your receiver to make sure the coax is pushed all the way in, and hasn't fallen out. For better reception you could replace the aerial with a mounted aftermarket one. Hope this helps.

Hi the radio went dead on my kia sorrento 2004, after the battery died and the car had to be jump started. I am pretty sure that my fuse for the radio went dead. I checked both fuse box in the sorrento,...


The anti theft security feature on the radio was triggered when the battery power was lost. If you have your owners manual, it will have instructions on how to get the security code to unlock the radio. Otherwise, you may have to contact a dealer for help.

Kia sorento electric aerial packed up.


Look under the wheel arch and remove the plastic cowl which protects the under side of the wing.
You will see the aerial under there.
good luck
