Question about Kia Sportage
I have an April 2012 model Kia Sportage that has only done around 28,000kms. This morning the instrument panel is not working? I have checked every fuse and none are blown. I have also discovered that the Rearview mirror camera is not working and I don't think the rear demister/defroster are working either? are they linked? The car starts fine and drives fine, I have radio, clock and climate control. Window wipers work. any suggestion on what the problem might be? Kia can run diagnostics till tomorrow but from what I'm seeing there has been other instrument panel failures from others.
DISCONNECT THE NEGATIVE CABLE FROM THE BATTERY,THEN WAIT ONE MINUTE,AND RECONNECT,WHAT HAPPPEN?

The ignition switch is faulty, typically the contacts burn for the 501 power supply circuit. That is the circuit that provides main power to head lights, wipers blower motor and a few other accessories.

SOURCE: Power Door Lock Problem
The last post by maddog1321 was exactly what I had with my right rear door. The electric locks would not lock and unlock, and you almost couldn't do it manually without my feeling I was about to break something. I took the door panel off, oiled everything and got no relief. Finally, I saw the above post and drilled out the aft-most pop-rivet. THE WINDOW WORKED PERFECTLY! I didn't drill out the forward (closest to the handle) pop-rivet because I wanted to do one at a time so the solenoid would not fall out of place. I then put a new pop-rivet in place of the one I drilled out. I then reinstalled everything and the locks work like new.

make sure the back window is all the way up then try the wiper, if it still does not work then it is a sensor for the rear window (about $30.00) if you installed it yourself
