SOURCE: 2000 kia sportage ex, 4 cyl.
Many of the Kia sportages have a problem with the coils.
There are 2 coils for each 2 cyl and they are located under the middle platic cap on the valve cover.
These coils will set a check engine light that blinks when misfiring and stays on steady when the motor is running smooth. Autozone or Advance auto have a scanner that can check all engine functions and will show a problem with # 2 and 4 cyl.
The coil packs are $39.00 to replace but check the codes first

A code P0135 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
= O2 Heater element resistance is high
= Internal short or open in the heater element = O2 heater circuit wiring high resistance = open or short to ground in the wire harness.
What to do; = Repair short or open or high resistance in wiring harness or harness connectors.
= Replace oxygen sensor (cannot repair open or short that occurs internally to sensor)
A code P0141 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
Same as above: mentioned in P0135.
What do do is the same as above, so i am leaning towards and faulty wire harness since you have replaced both O2 sensors. Make sure the wire harness has no break in it or crushed connection clips. The other thing to look for is a bad fuse that is used to heat up the O2 sensor. It may not say O2 sensor on it, it may piggy back off something else so check all the fuse and make sure the O2 has a good ground and not corroded. Good luck and hope this helps.

I would say u have a shorted heater circuit, have u checked the fuses under the hood and in the cab? if it is blown disconnect the sensors and see if it happens again.

There is no real easy way to do it....not like the older cars..
CAUTION After disconnecting the negative battery cable, wait for at least 10 minutes for the air bag module to deplete its stored energy.
CAUTION Place the air bag module in a safe location with the front facing upward.
NOTE If may be necessary to mark the steering wheel to steering column alignment.
