Where are the headlight fuses?


Mitch, No fuse for the headlamps. Controlled by the IPM,(Intelligent integrated Platform Module) fuse box under dash, has a built in smart circuit breaker that trips. It should reset if the key is cycled, but if the short is still there it will open again.
Check the attached links, last link shows IPM.

My 2002kia optima stays in third gear and runs 3000rpm how do i fix the problem


Sounds like the car is in "limp in mode". If a major sensor goes out or the computer senses a reoccurring problem for too long, it send the car into "limp in mode".
Lose of power, low speed (usually not over 50-55mph) horrible gas mileage, and inability to shift gears.

Kia 2003 optima



Hello
The engine and transmission in this cars drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Power Train Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPEDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM

Location of fuel pump reset


Hi going through a wiring schematic shows me that this car is not equipped with an inertia switch. There is simply a fuse, relay, engine control module, and the fuel pump in this wiring. This relay would be located on the right hand side of the dash. Here is an illustration showing the placemtn of the relay and the wiring.
The optima does not have a fuel pump reset switch, the fuel pump is controlled by a relay which is actuated by the engine control module...

I was driving my 2001 Kia Optima down the freeway and it just died. Acts like it wants to turn over but I get nothing. Fuel pump? Spark plugs? what could be the problem. I want to know where to start...


You have to first see if you get fuel and or spark. To check spark you need an extra spark plug to put into one of the wires and lay it on something grounded. When you turn over the engine you should see a spark from the electrode. If no spark you can take out your ignition control module and have it checked at you local parts store for free. They also will give you readings to check your coils to see if they are ok. Your ecm can be checked by a larger shop or at dealership shop. If you are not getting fuel you should turn key and listen for the pump to kick on. If you do not hear the pump you should check your relay first in the fuse and relay box. If the relay clicks when you turn the key on then I would say the fuel pump is bad.

Fuel pump relay location


I have a 2004 kia optima 4cyl. found fule pump relay under the radio.
1)remove the crome square frame surrounding stick shift
2) pop out the cup-holder frame that goes around the stick shift
3) you will see 2 crews in front of stick shift. remove both
4) pop out frame that goes around radio (disconnect harness connector on side of this frame.
5) relay is a square looking box on right side below radio (approx 2"x2") has 2 screws to hold it in place.
BEFORE REMOVING: TEST IT BY TURNING IGNITION KEY(ONLY UNTIL PANEL LIGHTS ARE ON) YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO HEAR or feel THE CONTACT CLICKING IN THE RELAY)
