Question about 2001 Kia Sephia
I have a 2001 Kia Sephia. I've had it ''grounded'' and ''saudered'' a couple times now (i don't know what those mean). Sometimes when the fan starts running (from heat), it often times messes up the electrical system and will sometimes shut the entire car off completely. When this happens, i can't get the car to start and i have to wait about an hour to get it starts (it doesn't turn or kick over). Sometimes this occurs when i put my head lights on, or roll my windows down (power window), or hit my brakes. I know for a fact this has nothing to do with the battery and i've already had the alternator replaced. Could it be connection problems and will i need to continually ''groud'' or ''sauder'' my car at $200 each time? Can anyone help or have advice?
The fuse box may have gone bad and your getting electrical shorting. Check the fuse box under the hood that may have gone bad and may need to be replaced, look for corrosion where the fuse goes into and the wire harness. Don't know if you had your car since new, but there are a lot of cars from the Katrina Hurricane that was under water and the electrical system have major corrosion that should just be showing up now. Good luck and keep me posted
