The thernister has failed. That bis the sensor that turns the fan on. when they fail they fail in the run position to protect from engine overheat. change it soon because the fan will not last long like that.

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

SOURCE: code for kia sportage tape and cd player

You can go to the dealer and have them help you get the code for the radio, if there going to charge you a crazy amount you can try www.radio-code.com. There cost is cheaper and can help you reprogram the code in your KIA. befor you go through all that, check for the code in the glove box, there might be a sticker in there or in your back pages to your manuel.
Good luck and hope this helps yougte your radio wokring again, keep me posted oh and try 0000 first.

SOURCE: I need the timing belt replaced on 2000 kia

That depends on if you are replacing it before or after it stops working. The engine is an interference engine and if the timing belt goes out, it could damage the head and cost you around $1500. before it goes out you should be able to get it done for about $500 plus parts.
P.S. get the water pump replaced at the same time for a little extra as long as the front of the engine is being taken apart.

2006 Kia Sportage fuse 4 radiator fan?


your owner's manual should show the fuse layout and it should also be on the fuse compartment cover. The radiator fan will be controlled by a heat sensor so will not be on all the time or when the engine is cold. It most likely has a clutch as well. I don't own a Kia but the basics are most likely the same as all newer vehicles. [2006 is newer to me]

Radiator reading says is hot


I had the problem with my 2000 Kia Sportage. The only solution I could find was to replace the fan clutch. The temperature then read normal.

2000 Kia Sportage overheating


i
you can get a new temp gauge sender unit and install it
bleed the air out of the cooling system by loosening off the highest point hose
have a compression test done to check for head gasket or cracked head
take it to an accredited radiator specialist and have a flow test done on the radiator
it is possible that the cores are blocked and it needs repalcing

2000 kia sportage engine fan not turning on


I assume all the belts are on the vehicle, alternator, power steering,etc. If so than you have a bad fan clutch and it time for a new fan.

2000 kia sportage new heater core no heat


You most likely have air in the cooling system.You would need to bleed the cooling system of air.There should have bleed screws near water neck,or thermostat.Do this cold.Remove the radiator cap and fill full.Then start the engine and loosen the screws and watch for nothing but coolant to flow out(no air or bubbles).When you are sure the air is gone out of the cooling system,shut the bleeder screw off,and fill radiator up and test to see that engine runs cool,and you have heat at all speeds and rpm s.The electric cooling fan should come on at a tempuratue of about 215 or so.But just as important,the cooling fan should cut off at a lower tempurature.If the cooling fan does not do this,you still have air in the system.If you can not get the air out this way,then do this.Remove the radiator cap and reservoir cap and fill them both up full.The reservoir needs to be over the fill mark a good deal.Replace the caps.Start the engine with ac and heat off.Let it run until the engine gets to about 212 or 215 degrees and shut the engine off.Wait about 30 minutes and check the reservoir to see if the coolant has dropped.It should have dropped.If the reservoir has dropped or not ,do this again and again untill the reservoir drops in coolant level,and engine temp is good(fan goes on and goes off).Remember to refill the reservoir as needed as it drops,not to run out of coolant.

Radiator fan fuse is fuse # 5 (40 amp/Green) located behind the interior fuse access panel on the left side of the instrument panel next to the steering column. Also, in the underhood Power distribution center, next to the air cleaner filter are two black fan relays: high speed (F) at the far left, second row down and a low speed, 1st one to the right on the bottom row.
