Start the engine and set the A/C on max cold with air set to recirculate and blower on high. Open the hood and look on the bottom-right (as you stand in front of the vehicle) for the A/C compressor. It has two hoses coming out of it and an electric clutch on the front. If the front portion of the pulley is not turning, the A/C is not working. You may have a refrigerant leak which has dropped the pressure below the preset limit controlled by a sensor in the system. You will need to locate the leak and repair/recharge the system with R-134A refrigerant.

2003 kia sorento air con. Just got it air was cool but not cool and then it went warm what does this mean?

Low on freon. A parts store will charge it for you. Get a small can $12 with die in it. If it still goes low, you can find the leak with a neon light.

I cant find my glow plug relay on my kia sorento 2003 WA03SKX

Its in the bonnet, on the right hand side (facing the front of the car) towards the windscreen under a black cover with 2 clips. It's removable and easily replaced. I find it unlikely that it needs replacing however. A more likely reason is the fuse for the glow plugs which is in the driver side footwell. (On a right hand drive car). The car book which came with the car details where all these items are.

2003 kia sorento running cold but still has heat

Are you sure it's running cold? Maybe you just have a bad gauge lead or sender?

If you have a gauge you can check things out by grounding the lead going into the temp sensor on the motor. If you can't find it get a service/repair book from the parts store for reference.

If you ground the gauge and it goes full hot than the gauge is fine. Next you need to ohm the sensor and see if its reads a closed circuit on a warmed up motor. If not, your sensor needs replacement.

I hope this helps.
Good luck and be careful.

Air conditioner quit cooling,
