Disable the immoboliser so my car will start 99 Kia sportage

Have you lost your Key? Immobilisers are designed to stop vehicles being stolen. Because of this it is VERY difficult to disable immobilisers. They are wired into several systems in the vehicle.
Contact a good auto electrician and ask there advise. You might have to take the hit to you bank account and pay for a replacement coded key for the ignition.

    Trunk wont unlatch with keyless entry remote or trunk release button on door on 1997 lincoln continental

    It sure sounds like a fuse. You can check for proper voltage at the hot wire of the actuator while you try to pop it. I think you are overlooking the fuse. Make sure the actuator has a good ground as well.

    Keyless entry does not unlock doors, open trunk, or start vehicle (remote start built onto keyless entry). Battery is new in BOTH remotes and neither one works. Could a fuse in vehicle be bad? Secondly,...

    RFA / MOD fuse 10amp . location - insturment panel fuse box. Fuse Block - I/P
    Right side of the I/P, behind the access panel
    If the fuse is good your best bet would be to take it to a qualified repair shop , that doesn't mean the dealer . Lot of good independant repair shops around , just have to check the yellow pages.
    Do you know what DTC'S are ? diagnostic trouble codes ! Not only the ones for the engine management system OBD 2 . There are also DTC'S for the remote keyless entry system , BCM - body control module. You need a factory or professional scan tool to view this codes
    DTC B3101
    DTC B3102
    DTC B3103
    DTC B3106

    The remote control door lock receiver (RCDLR) communicates with the body control module (BCM) through the keyless entry serial data circuit. When any button on the keyless entry transmitter is pressed, the transmitter sends a signal to the RCDLR. The RCDLR sends a lock, unlock, or panic alarm request to the BCM, depending on which button is pressed on the transmitter. The BCM receives the message and performs the appropriate function. The BCM also uses the keyless entry serial data circuit in order to communicate with the RCDLR when programming transmitters. Do you know what serial data circuits are ?

    DTC B3101 Keyless Entry Data Link Circuit Range/Performance
    DTC B3102 Keyless Entry Data Link Circuit Low
    DTC B3103 Keyless Entry Data Link Circuit High
    DTC B3106 Keyless Entry Data Link Parity Error

    This is what the factory manual said as to the location of power steering fluid reservoir ! Not much help , you would do better googling it.
    The power steering fluid reservoir holds the power steering fluid and may be integral with the power steering pump or remotely located. The following locations are typical locations for the remote reservoir:
    • Mounted to the front of the dash panel
    • Mounted to the inner fender
    • Mounted to a bracket on the engine
