Question about 2007 Kia Sorento 4x4

1 Answer

My 2007 Kia Sorento used to charge my phone in the off position. We took a trip in the car and used a power inverter and now it no longer charges while the car is off. I checked all the fuses. None are burned out. Thank you!

    The 2007 Kia Sorento has 3 outlets. One when you open the ash tray where I keep spare change; one below that in a small tray and one behind the two bucket seats in the back of the console. The one behind the seats and the one in the small tray (not the lighter) no longer have power to them but used to work when the car wasn't on. Now only the lighter works but will only chare if the car is running. The other two don't work at all. I checked the fuses and they are all good. a power inverter that got very hot; neither would work any more with

Does it work with the power on?
Cig lighter if equipped is not for power sources and is always on.
Power supply outlets are run by the key on.
If the outlet , neither off or car running, works ; you have a blown fuse. Just might have over looked it.

    The 2007 Kia Sorento has 3 outlets for charging. The cigarette lighter in the ash tray which if used as a charging port only works if the car is on. I don't have a cigarette lighter in there; it was emty when I bought the car. The other two are in a tray below the ash tray on the front console and the other is located behind the console between the two front bucket seats. The lighter will work as a charger only if the car is running. The other two are totally dead and will no longer work. I checked all fuses and they are good. We took a trip to California and ran a power interter off the back port and it got very hot and now the two charging ports (not the cigarette lighter port) are no longer working. I can't figure out why. They were very convenient because they worked without having to run the car.

I have a 2011 Kia Sorento that just had alternator changed and my battery light will come on and go off sometimes multiple times while driving. Battery is good what could be causing this..

You probably will need a shop to look at and test the charging system. It could be as simple as a loose connection, or something more serious. The newer systems often have the computer, the ecu, controlling the alternator and how much it charges. So it's no longer just either the battery or the alternator being at fault. It depends on the manufacturer and how the system is designed.
I don't know about Kia, but any repair shop could find the information.
