Question about Kia Cars & Trucks
Replaced the fuse
If the blower motor is not working and the fuse is good then check for power at the motor with the key on and the fan speed switch on. if you have power at the motor and its not running then check the ground side at the motor if this is good then replace the blower motor. you can also try hitting the motor to see if it will start to run but this does not always work. if you have no power at the motor then it is probably the blower motor resistor that is bad.

Locate the motor, check if it is getting voltage when you turn it on, by probing the connectors. Another possiblity besides the motor is the motor control which control its speed. Newer cars usually have an electronic package located by the motor housing. It has a thermal fuse, that sometimes look like a resistor, that blows. and it looks like part of the circuit. Soldering tool is required to replace that. You can also check the motor by hot wiring it, but make sure it is disconnected, and isolated before performing the test. Otherwise you could fry up some electronic device.

Testimonial: "It was very informative and did help me understand the system better than I did. In this case, I only had a loose connection which you helped me find."
SOURCE: Repair Manual for Kia Sportage.
I just purchaced a 2000 Sportage and am having the same problem. I did find that Autozone.com has a free online manual that you can view and print sections from. I would rather have a book at my side when I repair my car, but until somebody comes up with one we are stuck with the online services.

Rule of thumb...unless you get a better answer: look for a couple of wires on a small plate that is in the airflow of the fan on the heater/ac unit. The resistor pack is always air cooled by the fan.

did you check the switch to the control cluster ? incase you dont know what im talkin about the switch that turns it on and off and adjusts speed? if its not that then do you have a blown fuse becouse the blower moter has an independant fuse some times in the fuse box there may be 2 1 in the car and the other under the hood try that let me know if its fixed
