Question about 2006 Kia Carnival 2.9
My kia carnival has engine light comes on intermittantly. Pending code p2187 related to it. Theres no code if engine light doesnt come on. Vehicle runing well. It wont start on first time either whne this happen un less tried several times, rest and try again. I dont know what is the description and the cause of this problem and code. Any help appreciated.
I have checked the data sheet and I have no reference for the code you have given. All I can tell you is that it could be a poor or no connection to the air heater element or a wiring harness fault near the air intake air pipe.

it is located on the drivers side underneath the van. you have to remove it from the underside of the car. you will need a 17 millimeter socket or wrench. Remove the ground cable before attempting to remove the starter.

I have a manual for a '99 model - the one with separate radio/cassette and CD model No's;

Under "How to enter your password"
1. press power button & "Test" appears for 5 seconds, and blinks for 5 minutes. If you turn the power button off then back on again within 5 minutes "Code" blinks on the display.
2. enter password using the numbered buttons - press button 1 once to let it know it's the first digit, then press button 1 again however many times to bring up the code for the first digit. Press button 2 to let it know it's the second digit, then again however many times....etc. To enter default 1111 code, press button 1 twice,, 2 twice, 3 twice then 4 twice.
3. when all four digits entered (default is 1111) press SEL button and display should say "GOOD"
4.You get three goes, if still wrong after third attempt "HOLD" then you have to leave it for an hour

SOURCE: what does code p2187 mean
thats not a code p stands for powertrain the next digit will be either a 0 generic obd2 code or 1 Manurfacturer spec. check your code make sure that it is right

code p2189 and p2187 = air/fuel mixture too lean on both cylinder banks which in turn generates excessive emissions = failed inspection.
What can cause a lean mixture:
- Incorrect main charge signal
- Intake air system leaking
- Fuel pressure too low
- Volume supply of fuel pump too low
- Mechanical fault in injectors
- PCV valve leaks
- Leaks in exhaust system
- EVAP canister purge valve mechanically faulty (hangs open)
All these must be checked.

That is part of the Antitheft system. Either you had a dead battery and had to jump start your car or the battery was disconnected for one reason or another. The only way to get your radio unlocked is to take the car to a Kia dealer. Make sure you have your photo ID and proof of registration with you. They will only unlock a radio for the registered owner of the vehicle. This is to keep someone from stealing your radio and using it in their car.
