Code 038 means the computer is getting a high voltage return in the heater circuit from the O2 sensor mounted after the catalytic converter. The O2 sensors have an internal heater to make them work as soon as you start the engine.
You would need to test the circuit to and from the sensor to find the real problem.

SOURCE: check gngine light

Ok I think you meant code P0171, this means the fuel trim is always lean, you need to check for a engine vacum leak, maybe a cut or damaged PCV hose or any other hose that is in the vaccum system, I have read other Kia owners (Kia Forums, you should join one) reports of this same code, most found it not to be the O2 sensor but a vacuum leak.

SOURCE: After replacing a broken tire pressure sensor the

The 2006 tire pressure monitoring system will automatically reset after driving approximately 20minutes above 20MPH. It is important to note that if you go below 20MPH during this diagnostic drive cycle the counter in the TPMS module wil reset requiring you to start over. The easiest thing to do is go on a highway. If after this drive cycle the TPMS warning light is still in you most likely have another problem in the system with a code stored in the module.

Why does,nt alternator charge the battery?


You need to check the small connector that plugs into the back of the alternator. One of the pins will have a power supply when the ignition is in the on position. It could be 12v or 5v so a voltmeter should be used to detect it. If no power check fuses. Possible bad charge fuse or wiring to the alternator. If power supply is there, possible faulty alternator ( even though it's new )

My kia sportage 2006 diesel have code p 1187 don't have power


One of the first things I do when I get a new-to-me vehicle is to get a Chiltons/Haynes repair manual for that make/model/year. These repair manuals have the codes, troubleshooting guides, and even tell you when you may well be in over your head. And yes, I keep the manual when I get rid of the car. You never know if you may well buy another. I have Kia repair manuals, but they are for Sephia/Spectra. And to my knowledge these sedans did not come with a diesel engine. I didn't even know the Sportage could be ordered with this powerplant. Just checked my books. Neither address diesel powered Kias. You will have to find a repair manual the specifically addresses Kia Sportages with the diesel engine.
