Try checking all fluid levels to start with or perhaps it due for an oil change or routine maintence

    its not uncommon for such an occurrence to occur directly after servicing it could be fluid levels are low or radiator level is low oil etc ..i would physically look to ensure this all things the car has sensed something needs attention or it wouldn't just come on if all else fails and is ok and after looking for any obvious reasons such as a cracked vacuum line or along those lines disconnect the + positive terminal of the battery and wait at least 3 minutes allowing the O B C to reset itself if it reappears i would guess the 02 sensor but not certain as i am not physically there but try these steps 1 st ...would love hearing what if anything is discovered thanks

Check light has come on the dash board of my 2002 kia rio 1.3 why is this?


Hi there,

The "Engine Check" means your vehicle's diagnostic computer has detected a system malfunction in one of the many electronic circuits.

If this warning light remains illuminated, then you will need to have your vehicle's Diagnostic computer read asap, at your local Kia Dealership (20mins - for a small fee) and have the malfunction corrected.

Cheers,

Check under the seats that there are no items rolling around, like bottles etc, and check the cables that are under the seats, they can make a bad contact, putting on the warning lamp

Hello, got a yellow warning light on my mothers Kia rio 2002. Its about 10 0clock on the left hand side of the instrament panel, which she discribes as a engine block or tap! I havent seen the picture so...


More then likely it's going to be a check engine light, have her have engine diag. done, due to the computer pick up a bad reading from one of her engine sensor's, she can also take it to some one like Autozone and they can do a code reading for free, but tell her not to buy any thing till she has it check at a repair shop.

I have a 2003 kia rio runs great hesatates slighty on take off what could it be


You didn't mention the mileage, but you should consult the owners manual & see if any tune-up maintenance may be due. Additionally, the air filter, fuel filter, fuel injectors, spark plugs as well as a few other items can cause hesitation on acceleration.

If there are no engine warning lights, you could also try a little fuel injector cleaner (available at your local auto parts store & most larger auto departments of places like Walmart) I always get the 3.00 a bottle gumout cleaner, use 1 bottle for a 1/2 tank, repeat in about a week & see if that doesn't help. good luck

I have a 2004 kia rio and check warning light has come


It may just be cold weather that's making your O2 sensor toss a code to the computer. If the car starts to chug when you drive it you will probably want to have a shop look at it.

Tom - that is your check engine light. Seems odd that is is intermittent when coming on. Usually they stay continually lit until checked/problem repaired and the code removed from your computer by a qualified service technician. Regardless, you need to get your car in for service.
