I have similar problems that you did. My radio light went off and on, my low and high beams in the front of the car went out at the same time, it sounds like the rear end is going out, the tail light went out, the tranny's going out, the radio clock is going out, the volume button won't turn up the music when you want it to and it will turn it down when you don't touch it, the clock fades and then goes completely out... We don't have a warranty on this stupid car. What can we do? -Shelbi R.

I remember a similar problem, replaced the dimmer switch , problem solved, maybe its the same for you, autozone has a website, when you clickon this part, it tells you why it needs replaced, pretty cool , give it a shot, see what happens. tell the parts store you bought the light from what happened, they can help you, customer service is there job !
When you switch from High to Low beams, do the lights go out, or continue, in the "High" beam position??? If they go go, the transfer switch, that changes the high/low beam mode is working. The most likely problem, is that the Low Beam filaments are both burned out. Some, on original equipment, never changed, can burn out within days/weeks of each other. Could be that.
if your vehicle has H4 headlight bulbs fitted you will find that they have both high & low beam filaments in them,what has most likely happened is that the low beam filaments are blown & the bulbs need to be replaced, also you may find that high & low beam circuits are on separate fuses, & also the front markers may have there own fuse check the fuses as well.......hope this helps......cheers.
Assume you're referring to 'low beams' not working? and 'high beams' are? Both circuits run they're own relays and fuses, check owners manual for locations, could be faulty relay (check by swapping with high beam relay) or blown fuse. Also find occasionally, both globes blown, high and low beam filaments in same globe
Check the headlight relay, and check for loose connection. Unplug the headlights, and see if you get some voltage while the switch is on. Low voltage reading indicates a loose connection. Listen for a relay if it clicks when you turn it on. Pull out the relay open it, and check the contacts for signs of arcing characterized by burned apearance.
The whole headlight assembly needs to be removed from the vehicle to access the lamps inside; especially on the side with the battery (left side).
Remove 3 10m bolts (one on top two on front)
Headlight assembly is held in place wth a large Nylon clip ear outer edge at bottom of the unit. Tilt out at the top and then pull forward and upward to remove. It fels like something's gonna break, but it's pretty tough.
Remove large round cap from behind either high or low beam lamp. Both lamps are hels in with a metal spring clip. Low beam is H-7, high beam is H-3.
To re-install, press bar into Nylon clip and then install 3 10mm bolts. Use a Torx bit to engage gear teeth and adjust height if necessary. There may or may-not be adjusters for left-right alignment.
First actually check and verify both elements in bulbs are good with vom, then check fuses, if these are both ok check for actual power to the bulbs when on low beam. I am not sure if this kia uses a relay for the low high beam or not, but if they do then I would check that if no power on low beam at bulbs, last the actual switch if everything else checks out.
