Starters will still work when worn but will have increased drag drewing too many amps. which will blow your fuses. before replacing older starter first remove all wire connections shiny clean and replace. make certain starter is tight to block(this is your ground. ) Important to remove ground cable from battery before working on starter.

2005 kia sorento change ext fuse and it keep blowing


I have a 2004 Sorento EX and my EXT fuse along with the stop lamp fuse kept blowing. The ext would blow as soon as I turned the vehicle on. The stop lamp would blow after a couple pushes of the brake pedal causeing me to have no rear lights at all regarding brake and the lights that you turn on at night. After much reading online in forums such as this, I was led on a chase looking for grounding wires, broken wires, dirty battery terminals, faulty altinator, and for a drl module. I could not find a drl module as I now do not believe there is one in sorentos, or at least in mine. I then came to the brake switch that is located on the arm of the brake pedal. I disconnected it, put a couple of new fuses in, started my vehicle and checked my fuses, and at last they did not blow! I reconnected the brake switch and checked the fuses and they had blown. I have a hunch that I am dealing with a faulty brake switch. Hope this helps

2006 Kia sorento air conditioner and windshield wipers stopped working


It may be possible , these newer cars use so many modules and computers , there are not like the older cars. its is like the your problem it could be getting power for a few fuse locations.

The best thing to do would be to check all the fuses . the inside and the under the hood fuse boxes.

One fuse could power the a/c and then another power the module and another power the same module and if one of the three blow then things operated by the module may not operate, so the answer again , it may be related or not so check all the fuses first. good day

I have a 2003 kia sorento ex. when i turn light switch on, nothing happens. I have no tail lights or fog etc. only front running lights. All new bulbs and fuses are fine. Brake lights work.


Hi,

I drive a kia sorento and i have had a similar problem. I have a hitch on the back and the electrical connection was bad and kept blowing fuses. I removed the electrical hookup. Easy to do as it is a plug conected to the harness of your vehicle. Located underneath your vehicle just above the rear wheel well on the passenger side. Your fuse panel is located under the hood of your vehicle next to your battery. Remove fuses one by one and check for any that are blown. I hope this helps.

Both headlights went out yesterday, I am thinking it was a fuse, to blow both lights at the same time ?


Appereantly headlight on the Kia do not last long, I have lost count of headlamp replacements. Basically, I would say that they last about 5-6 months or less, and we don't do a lot of driving. We have learned to turn off our headlights during the day to minimize run time and on/off surges. We have already had to deal with one fix-it ticket and we are constantly worried about getting pulled over because one of the headlights could blow at any moment. I buy headlights in two packs now to save money. Before you change the headlights check the fuses, in both fuse boxes for any blown fuses, One is under the hood to your right side beneath a black case I beleive, and the other is in the car, near the drivers left leg on the wall.

Ignition switch fuse terminal is blowing red 40 amp fuse when i try to replace it


A fuse that is consistently blowing is telling you that there is a short in that system. Don't attempt to bridge it or use a larger amp fuse or you will have a major problem. You will need to start tracing wiring to destinations to find the short. If while moving harnesses around problem ceases to exist, look at nearby items where you are working and try to locate what was grounding. Sometimes people will stop if short disappears, leaving open the possibility of it happening again.
If you are not comfortable working with wiring, then leave it to professionals who do this every day. It's not really difficult but requires patience and a good bit of knowledge to do this right!
