Question about 2006 Kia Sportage

1 Answer

I have Kia Sportage 2006. It likes to stall while I'm driving it. No problems with starting up. While driving the headlights will dim, dashboard lights will dim, radio will stop, etc. then the car dies. I replaced the alternator, timing & serpentine belts, water pump, battery, and crankshaft & camshaft sensors. I also had a tune-up, oil change, and a throttle body & fuel injection service with a idle re-learn. The car ran great for about 2 months and is now having the same symptoms. What is else is wrong?

SOURCE: I have a 2002 Kia Sportage - idle slow when stopping at lights

Even though the fuel filter and pump are easy to replace, I would start with the IAC sensor first. It is easier to get to and is cheaper than the other two if you can find one at a wrecking yard (should be around $20). This sensor is the Idle Air Control sensor, and the computer decides how much throttle to give at idle from the readings of the sensor. If it is bad your car will idle poorly or not at all.

You can verify this two simple ways:

1. Disconnect the sensor completely and see if anything changes. If you get the same issue, then it's probably the sensor. If different then it could be fuel delivery.

2. With it all hooked up; try throttling the engine yourself at 1000-1200 rpm and see if it is smooth. If it is then it is probably the sensor. If not then could be the fuel delivery.

The sensor is under the silver and black, plastic KIA cover over the engine (4 small nuts to remove), and is center above the engine on the front side of the intake pipe.

The part looks like this:

If it seems to still be fuel delivery, the filter is (facing the engine from the front of the car) down to the left and toward the back attached to the fender well (Just to the right of and below the battery)

Start with the simple and replace the fuel filter. The fuel filter should be replaced every 15,000 miles or once a year to ensure the fuel system is running 100%. Auto Zone will have the fuel filter and can give you the step by step instructions to getting the job done with common tools. If it's the fuel pump failure, you have not gotten the car restarted. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to know you got your car running 100% again soon and please rate.

That is a problem for the experienced mechanic
I would start at the battery,all cables,wires ground wires
& look at the alternator output,current & diodes.
Sounds like a module is not getting battery voltage or
could be an issue also
Don't see the starter in that picture unless you had no
problems before it got put in ,then something other
than the starter was disturbed or grounded out by the key
being on etc,sloppy work practice & ruined something

Check the voltage coming out of the alternator with engine running it should be 13.0-14.7 volts.Usally when the battery light comes on the voltage is to low or not charging.If voltage is below 13.0 volts or higher than 15 volts then the alternator is faulty and will need to be replaced.

After replacing a broken tire pressure sensor the tpms light came on. How do I reset it or turn it off? 2006 Kia Sportage.


The 2006 tire pressure monitoring system will automatically reset after driving approximately 20minutes above 20MPH. It is important to note that if you go below 20MPH during this diagnostic drive cycle the counter in the TPMS module wil reset requiring you to start over. The easiest thing to do is go on a highway. If after this drive cycle the TPMS warning light is still in you most likely have another problem in the system with a code stored in the module.
