Question about 1999 Kia Sportage

1 Answer

99 Kia Sportage, 2wd, automatic, 4 cylinder. The a/c will not work with the a/c switch in, blower on any setting (blower motor is fine at all speeds) temp control on coldest blue area. Have checked all fuses - every fuse is good. If I jump the compressor with 12 volts, the a/c pump will come on, will get very cold air inside, low pressure side lines will get cold sweats.... so everything in the a/c system is working fine cold air wise......it just won't come on (operate) when you push the button on the dash!!! Is some sensor or relay causing this....what checks can I do to find the problem.....I am good mechanic, so you can get technical. Thanks

Heater blower motor.,Highspeed only works..problem??


9 out of 10 times its the heater fan resistor doing this. it has wires that corresponed to diffreent speed settings for heater fan. the resistor is beside the blower motor, Your Kia Sportage Blower Motor Resistor controls the heating equipment in the vehicle by opening and closing the fan motor. The Kia Sportage Blower Motor Resistor allows the heating and climate control system to control the speed of the vehicle's cooling fan. its under the passenger side glove box. undo 2 screws and disconnect the electrical connector. thats it!!

Blower motor speed not working


This is usually due to 1 of 3 possible problems.

  1. Bad blower motor resistor - attaches to blower motor and regulates fan speeds. Not uncommon to lose 1 speed at a time until you get stuck with only 1 speed
  2. Bad blower motor
  3. Bad heater control module - less likely but still possible the module is bad and the whole unit requires replacing

Fan motor problem


usually its the heater resistor that causes that. find it and check it out, this controls all fan speeds. its under the passengers side glove box, take off wiring then remove 2 screws and then it will drop out.

My electric locks keep locking and unlocking when driving and my blower motor doesnt work


Unless your remote is being bumped while driving, the master lock switch (on driver's side, sometimes also on passenger side) is about the only thing that can cause this.
Blowers die but relays do too; check in your fuse box for relays and try swapping identical relays between the one that services the heater circuit and another which is functioning correctly.
If the blower is working on the highest speed setting but no others, then the dropping resistor that allows for different speeds has failed. I don't know where that is located in your car; sometimes under the dashboard, sometimes on the firewall under the hood.
You could use a manual for your vehicle if you plan on maintaining it yourself and there is one (on CD) offered on eBay at this moment (July 4, ~ noon EDT) for a very good price of ~$15 US:

1999 KIA Sportage, 2WD. No heat, fan, A/C


did you check the switch to the control cluster ? incase you dont know what im talkin about the switch that turns it on and off and adjusts speed? if its not that then do you have a blown fuse becouse the blower moter has an independant fuse some times in the fuse box there may be 2 1 in the car and the other under the hood try that let me know if its fixed

Repair Manual for Kia Sportage.


I just purchaced a 2000 Sportage and am having the same problem. I did find that Autozone.com has a free online manual that you can view and print sections from. I would rather have a book at my side when I repair my car, but until somebody comes up with one we are stuck with the online services.
