Question about Kia Sportage LX

1 Answer

The check engine light came on in my two week old Kia Sportage. The dealership says it is some sort of switch in a bank of neutral switches that regulates the amount of oil going to my engine. They gave me a code or something about it, but I don't know what it means. This car is so new I don't even my plate for it yet.

2007 Kia Sportage won't turn over - fixing after being in an accident - Car and key light is on - does the air bag have to be replaced before it works?

I would think the engine would crank and start with the airbag deployed.
I would check for voltage at the starter, the neutral safety switch, and the key switch.
You might have to get a shop manual to trace the starter circuits.

Hello first of all, I cannot hide my admiration towards this wonderful website and effort revealed inside it Thank U for all what u r doing here I have a problem with my Kia Sportage 2002 , the check...

Want to make remark: I think that Kia Sportage may have a manufacturer's defect w/ code 128 ( check engine light). I had two separate mechanics from two reputable dealers look and try to fix problem w/ my vehicle, but to no avail. I have yet to take it to Kia dealership near me because since the economic crisis the dealership has shown its true colors in my opinion. They are a bunch of ignoble characters who don't know how to treat their customers w/ respect.
