Brake sign can come up if one or more stop bulbs are blown out. The battery sign is difficult to diagnose with this amount of information.

    Thanks vladimir...the battery signs is on and off in my dashboard and i can still start my car does it means that my alternator is ok

    The cause of that doesn't look like alternator: if this beast is out then it's completely doesn't give you a charge. There are two major culprits: 1) bad connectors in both lines, power one and alternator's control (may be in the fuses box); 2) weak tension on the alternator's belt. Check all three before going to repair shop.

SOURCE: 04 Kia Sorento stuck in 4WD Low

The 1st time my 04 Sorento got stuck in 4WD low it was towed to dealership & they claimed it was the switch. Six months later, while on a camping trip, got stuck again. The local tow truck driver saved me hundreds of dollars in towing costs. Put it in reverse for at least 10-20 feet. That's it! He said that he found this to be a common problem. I later asked my dealership why they failed to mention this solution to me. They replied that they thought I knew! Spread to word!

My 2007 Kia Sorento brake fluid/ parking light comes on when brakes are applied forcefully ,it flashes on and off as brake is released fluid level is full and brakes work fine what could cause this


Difference in pressure between the two circuits of the fuel lines will cause the proportion valve to light the light. Check for leaks at the wheel cylinders and calipers. Somewhere you've got a pressure drop.

Am using Kia Sorento 2004 limited edition and the hand brake light is always on with a beeping noise anytime I turn on the engine.


check your brake fluid for proper level if good check brake switch for fault and or brake s them selves for extreme wear or damage --also if light stays on constantly have vehicle scanned for a trouble code most auto stores offer this service for free

2004 Kia Sorento won't start and IP BRake light is on. What does this mean?


Could be one of two things. Check your master brake cylinder to make sure the level of brake fluid is where it should be . Also make sure your parking brake is released properly. Sometimes the switch sticks . One of those two things is probably the problem.

IP Brake light has come on in my 2004 Kia Sorento.. what does this mean?


Kia Sorento parking brake or brake fluid dash warning light - this light is illuminated when the park brake is applied, the warning light should go out when the parking brake is released. If the light does not go out it indicates that the brake fluid level in the reservoir is low and you need to pull over and top up at your first opportunity.

1-check parking brakes not applied
2-check brake fluid
3-if it is too low have the brakes checked they might be wearing out it doesn't mean you have a leak but when the brakes wear out the become thin causing the caliber piston to push out more lowering the oil level in the reservoir

BATTERY LIGHT AND EMERGENCY BRAKE STAY LIGHT ON DASH


Hi there:
Check the brake fluid level in the master cylinder. This is the only other thing that will turn that light on. There is a float inside the master and if it is low, the light will come on. Be sure to check and make sure the float comes up when you top it off.

Hope helps.

My brake light comes on while driving but the parking brake is not on. Does this mean there is a problem with my brakes? This has happened 4 times in two days. It come on, makes the alert buzz then goes...


Have you checked your brake fluid level? Sometimes, when the brake fluid is just a <little> too low, the brake error light will come on momentarily.
Sometimes parking brakes also stick a little (the cables tend to bind occasionally). This could also be your problem (although I rather doubt it).
Failing this, a quick check of the rotors, calipers, pads, fluid levels and system operation would be advisable.
Hope this helps, Sherwin
