Question about 2005 Kia Sorento
My Kia would not start so I bought a new battery. (it was time for a new on anyway) When I put in the new one, it still would not start and I noticed a "clicking" sound in the dash and under the hood. I opened the fuse box under the hood and noticed one of the relays was "clicking". I pulled it out and it stopped. However, the clicking in the dashboard continued. As I looked closer, I saw that the back lights on the dashboard were going on and off real fast, even with the key pulled from the ignition. I put in a new relay in the fuse panel under the hood and it started "clicking" again. So obviously that is OK. What is causing my lights to flicker on and off so rapidly? This is what probably caused my battery to die in the first place. Thank you!

Are you sure that you looked at ALL the Fuses? Could be the Cigarette Lighter Fuse or a Fuse under the Hood in That Fuse Box. There are a Few fuses that Link between the Fuse Boxes and Have Multiple Functions. Try this and see.
