Question about 2005 Kia Sportage

1 Answer

What would be the reasons that the check engine light and esp off lights go on on my 2005 Kia Sportage?

The check engine light has been going on intermittently for months; now the ESP Off light goes on and off also. Sometimes both of these lights are on at the same time. Any ideas? Thanks.

See if running the fault codes supplies you with an answer . Engine lights indicate problems with the engine and the transmission so both may indicate a wiring problem in/to the transmission or problems with the TCM

Cruise control will not 'set' on '05 kia sportage


Check the brake lighf bulbs. If even one is burnt out, it throws the sensors.
Had the same problem replaced both bulbs and now the esp light stays off and the cruise control sets.

PWR light on dashboard


You will need to have the pcm scanned to pull the trouble codes ffrom this unit to get a better idea on what is going on. With the breaks I would say whoever changed them disturbed one of the wheel sensors for the ABS.

Hold light flashing on dash.


We unhooked the battery and left it unhooked all night. This morning when he reconnected it and started it, it started right up and the hold light and our check engine light went off. We did press the hold button and it came on and went back off when we hit it again.

2005 Kia Sportage kills when release of gas pedal


Sounds like a faulty engine warning light and a problem with one of your vacuum hoses. This is difficult to find. Probable just an old cracked hose or loose connection. Propose this to your dealer. Just keep taking it back and tell them to check all of the vacuum hoses and the computer. Good Luck

I have a Kia sportage 2006 and the cruise control is not working it comes on but will not set. i also have found that my ESP light is coming on after 5 miles.


The ESP was a recall,the dealer will honor that if you havent had it done.The cruise I had the same problem replaced it and its starting to go bad again. I think soon we will find it to be a recurring problem in all sportages.
