Question about 2008 Kia Rio
I think I blew a fuse or something. The interior lights and clock will not turn on plus the trip meter is reset every time I turn off my car. The radio DOES turn on and work.
You are right... You will need to check your fuses. You can buy a fuse puller and pull each one out to check to see if the metal bar is separated or you can often times just tell by looking at it. Most interior fuses is on drivers side .

Are you sure that you looked at ALL the Fuses? Could be the Cigarette Lighter Fuse or a Fuse under the Hood in That Fuse Box. There are a Few fuses that Link between the Fuse Boxes and Have Multiple Functions. Try this and see.

Hello, Im Ron . Im going to Try to Help you Here. First the Cooling Fan. The Cooling Fan has A Micro-Relay # 37 In the Fuse/Relay Box UNDER_-HOOD IN this type Circuit You Have 3 Step Process to Control the Fan, 1 is the Temperature Sensor, 2 Is the Relay, 3 is the Fan. When Engine Gets Up to Operating temp. 220 Degrees the Sensor Grounds out & signals ECM of Engine
Temp and ECM Tickles the Relay to Turn ON the Fan.
In your Case I would RULE OUT Poor + Terminal Connections @ Battery Accessory Cables. AND Poor - Terminal @ Battery & Or Body Ground
THEN Test the Fan By BYPASSING to it With a Test wire With A + wire to the + side of Fan this is to Make Sure it Works .
Some Techs. Replace Sensor and Relay as A Pair Sense the Two are Fairly Inexpensive, but usualy you can Hear & or Feel the Relay "CLICK" If None Replace it. Shift Lock, Theres A Soliniod at Shifter that Unlocks ti WHEN you Apply the BRAKE, it is Controled By the Brakelight Switch.
I Strongly Suggest That you Check All Harness's From Battery to Interior, & Fuse Box.
I Know this seems Wild But With Limited Resorces & Lititure to work from this Is Where I Go.

I used pliers to pull out the entire plastic shroud around the fuse, then put the fuse into the shroud and then plugged the whole assembly back in.
