The fans only come onwhen temperature rises. It is controlled by a temperature sensor. Check with dealer before you burn up engine.

SOURCE: 1999 KIA Sportage, 2WD. No heat, fan, A/C

did you check the switch to the control cluster ? incase you dont know what im talkin about the switch that turns it on and off and adjusts speed? if its not that then do you have a blown fuse becouse the blower moter has an independant fuse some times in the fuse box there may be 2 1 in the car and the other under the hood try that let me know if its fixed

SOURCE: AC Blower motor died

This is more than likely just the resistor as a bad motor wouldn't start at all,And low refrigerant(Freon) has nothing to do with the blower.

SOURCE: How do you replace a Drivers side headlight bulb 2006 kia spectra

Helps to remove the battery, but small ahbds can do it.

Directly behind the lens is a big round cap ... twist it off. The bulb is held in place with a spring that locks in to a notch in the holder. When handling the new bulb, don't touch the glass. The oil from your skin will cause it to shatter when turned on.

My 2004Kia Spectra will not blow out heat or air


Sounds like the fan is not working. Does it blow air on any setting? If only on high, your resistor is faulty. If not, the motor, switch or fuse/relay may be at fault. Check these out first!!

Heater blower motor.,Highspeed only works..problem??


9 out of 10 times its the heater fan resistor doing this. it has wires that corresponed to diffreent speed settings for heater fan. the resistor is beside the blower motor, Your Kia Sportage Blower Motor Resistor controls the heating equipment in the vehicle by opening and closing the fan motor. The Kia Sportage Blower Motor Resistor allows the heating and climate control system to control the speed of the vehicle's cooling fan. its under the passenger side glove box. undo 2 screws and disconnect the electrical connector. thats it!!

2005 Kia Sportage - A/C and/or heater quit blowing air


Probably the blower motor resistor. Can you hear the compressor kicking on? If the fan won't blow at any speed, I'll bet it's the resistor.

Hope helps; keep in touch, and remember rated this help.

Heater in 2001 kia spectra stoped working


The burning smell is most likely an issue with the blower motor. These small motors have a hard life and the windings can lose the insulation and short out, hence the burning smell. Another problem can arise if the air intake has filled with leaves and other matter which can be ignited by the fan speed resistor creating the smoke. As this matter rots down, it creates chemicals which can erode the insulation on the motor and cause burning and the eventual failure of the motor. The fan speed resistor is a bank of wirewound or solid state resistors wired across the fan motor which give the individual fan speeds. If these fail then you would lose the fan as well. Search out the fan housing as the resistor is usually fitted into this housing to keep it cool. NEVER turn the fan on if this resistor is out of the housing as it WILL get hot and It can cause a nasty burn..the resistor can have upto 7 wires plugged into it but as to it's exact location, that you will have to find on your own..
