Question about 2001 Kia Sportage
Changed fuel pump relay and main relay, switched fuse, replaced fuel tank cap and it supposedly has a new fuel pump.
Sounds like its time to get a diagnostic computer connected to the car. you are replacing good parts.

Tell your husband to try running a jumper wire from the fuse panel. Make sure the fuse is only hot when the ignition is on. Run the the jumper wire directly to the pump, down the frame rail, and making sure to secure it. That should resolve any problems with the fuel pump, that is, if he's checked all fuses and breakers going to the pump. I hope this is helpful. Please rate my solution, thanks.

there are fuses under the hood also relays there . also there are fuses inside the car check them .. if all checks good you are in for changing a window motor out .. pull the switch and make sure you do have juice to the switch when the key is on .. thanks jerry holler if you need more.

SOURCE: My 1999 Kia Sportage won't start. I checked the fuel pump while the key is on the ignition and I get the impression that it is not getting any juice. Fuel pump fuse is OK. Both cam and crank se
Well for starters, you need to diagnose the problem before replacing anymore parts. I say this because you mention both the fuel pump and sensors dealing with the ignition system which are 2 separate main things. Basically it takes 2 things to make an engine start, fuel and spark at the spark plugs. You need to narrow down what is missing because it seems since you replaced sensors dealing with spark and then you mention the other need fuel. I'm not sure as to where to start to help until whatever is missing is diagnosed and then find the cause of the loss. There are a couple of things you can check. Below is a picture of the relay box in the engine compartment. With the help of somebody put a finger touching both the fuel pump relay and the EGI main relay. While touching them have somebody turn the key to the "on" position (no need to try and start). When the key is turned on you should feel a "click" inside both of those relays. The fuel pump relay will click for about 3 seconds and the click again to shut off. The EGI main relay should stay on. If both seem to be fine you need to make sure of the fuel pump gettting "juice" and for power to the ignition system like the coils. You can get to the power/juice wire at the fuel pump pretty easy. You can access the connection at the fuel pump by lifting the lower part of the rear seat. Once the seat is lifted you should be able to see a part in the carpet that is cut to be able to lift the carpet up and access the plate covering the access to the fuel pump and/or the top of the fuel tank. Using a test light, check the green and yellow wires at the fuel pump. You should have power at those wire when turn the engine over or if the key is just turned to the on position you should have power there for about 3 seconds. To begin checking for spark or power to the ignition system you need to make sure you are getting power to the ignition coils. The red and white wires at the coils are your power wires. Check those. Also you can check the power at the fuel injectors. When the key is turned on or when trying to start, you should have power to the green wire at each of the fuel injectors. You should have constant power/juice at each of the fuel injectors. This is where I would start to narrow down the loss. Start here with these tests and let me know how the tests come out by replying/commenting here or you can email me directly at email@example.com ith what you have found out. Once the first tests are done and I know what the results are, we can go to the next step with a couple of other tests to figue the problem out. If one of the relays don't "click" then you have a possible bad relay. The EGI main relay is a common thing to go as well as the fuel pump relay. Don't mind helping and there is no cost to you for it but I don't want to tell you to start replacing parts until the problem is located. Hope this helps get you started.
