SOURCE: the Abs light came on and will not go out after i

This is just a consequential event. the ABS sensor module was probably going out and decide the trigger the alarm at the same time you initiated the hard brake during travel. replacing or resetting this sensor module Will fix this issue. the light will go off as well.

Please rate and god bless.

SOURCE: Tail lights not working 2002 Kia Sedona

Spot on, I just got the same problem, both tail bulbs were ok but no lights and couldn't find a fuse listed for them, relaced the EXT fuse and it did the job and yes tailgate bulb was blown so I expect that was the root cause

2000 kia sephia, it has a headlight dimming problem and at the same time the tail lights wont come on till you turn off the lights or hit the brake pedal.

Check all your ground connections in front and back and at the lights clean or replace connectors and tighten ground bolts.

What is on the btn fuse on a 2000 kia sephia

quote: "Since you have isolated which system is guilty you can further isolate the components. Try disconnecting the wires to the tail light assemblies (one at a time) with the fuse in place and see if the draw disappears. Do this with the brake light switch, headlight switch, and even the relays and you may be able to narrow it down to a single component or a certain strectch of wiring..."

I have a 2000 kia sephia that recently had the dashboard light and tail lights go out. My headlights still work, but my dashboard and tail light don't. Any suggestions?

This sounds like a fuse problem. Check all your fuses. If they are the little plug in blade type, you will need to pull the fuse out and check the metal tab in the middle. You can pick up a test light for a few dollars at an automotive store. If you connect the light across the fuse (most of these have a little bit of metal exposed at the very top) and the light lights, then the fuse is bad. This test works because the fuse has zero resistance and therefore zero volts across it to power the light. If the fuse is bad, then there is 12volts across the fuse and the light lites.

Best of luck, Jim

My lights inside my 2000 kia sephia are coming off and on...mostly off what should i do?

Sounds like it maybe in one of the door switches. Role all the windows down turn on the ignition switch, get someone to sit in the car and watch the light. Close all the doors then grab the door and push and pull hard on the door. If the light flickers or come on the problem will be in that door switch. If neither happened jiggle and or tap on the switch for dome light. This seems a little far-fetched but change the bulb just in case the element in the bulb is broke and sometimes it makes connection.

Headlights & dashlights turning on & off

Daytime running light module which is located under dash (around the area of the fuses) probably has a bad solder joint inside (if you take it apart). If not could be bad connection on one of the switches (like your dimmer switch)
