Check engine light comes on when heater or fan is used 2000 Kia

The Check engine light comes on when heater or fan is used in my 2000 Kia. I can't use the defrost either. Also the car has very little acceleration when climbing hills. Should I stay in "drive" or decelerate to 1st or 2nd. Thanks. ZZ

Sounds like a blockage to the heater matrix ,not a job for us enthusiasts,might involve front dash removal to accses it.although an engine reverse flush could do the trick.

Hard starting with check engine light and hold light on


If your check engine light is on, take the car to your local auto parts superstore and have them scan for the fault codes. Usually it is free. The fault code will tell you where to start to solve the problem. Hope this helps.

I have a 2000 sportage. The heater fan does not


It may be the blower motor, or it may be the blower resistor. Check for power at the blower motor. If power present with system on and blower has good ground, motor bad. If no power check blower resistor in air box prior to blower motor. If power on input side but nothing coming out to blower change resistor.

2000 Kia heater fan does not come on


Check the contacts on the plug to the blower. The blower motor is under the dash on the passenger side. It is not hard to get to, you don't have to remove anything. I just removed the connector, cleaned the contacts with a wire brush and reconnected it. I have not had any problems since.

2000 kia sportage new heater core no heat


You most likely have air in the cooling system.You would need to bleed the cooling system of air.There should have bleed screws near water neck,or thermostat.Do this cold.Remove the radiator cap and fill full.Then start the engine and loosen the screws and watch for nothing but coolant to flow out(no air or bubbles).When you are sure the air is gone out of the cooling system,shut the bleeder screw off,and fill radiator up and test to see that engine runs cool,and you have heat at all speeds and rpm s.The electric cooling fan should come on at a tempuratue of about 215 or so.But just as important,the cooling fan should cut off at a lower tempurature.If the cooling fan does not do this,you still have air in the system.If you can not get the air out this way,then do this.Remove the radiator cap and reservoir cap and fill them both up full.The reservoir needs to be over the fill mark a good deal.Replace the caps.Start the engine with ac and heat off.Let it run until the engine gets to about 212 or 215 degrees and shut the engine off.Wait about 30 minutes and check the reservoir to see if the coolant has dropped.It should have dropped.If the reservoir has dropped or not ,do this again and again untill the reservoir drops in coolant level,and engine temp is good(fan goes on and goes off).Remember to refill the reservoir as needed as it drops,not to run out of coolant.
