According to the Dodge Truck forums, if you don't want to take it into the dealer to do it, disconnect the battery for 30 seconds and that should reset the light.

When is the timing belt need to be replaced in a kia sportage 2005?

The books say every 60,000 miles for all but California cars which can go 105,000 miles. I recomend you bring it in to the dealer to change that belt it goes on your record as routine mait in the case something severe happens trans prob engine prob you are more likly to have those items repaired or replaced for free under warrenty because you show routine maitnance done. If not could void your warrenty all together and latter down the road with sever engine issues or trans issues you will foot the bill due to no mait record how ever if you insist on changing the belt your self go to for step by step instructions. There is alot of detail to these belts including removing pullys engine mounts tensioners pluss knowing exactly where the cam is set after you remove the covers remember if you do the belt yourself one notch is out of time techs on that vehical after ward to reset the time can tell whether or not it was performed by kia or not.

Maitnance req. light is on

Its time for an oil change! Mainly preventative maintenance...Have them read any codes in the ECU to see what may be wrong. They will reset the lights.....or.....
1. With your car OFF, place your key in the ignition and turn to "On". Do not start the car.
2. Find the odometer button and press until it reads the total odometer setting, (not the Trip A or Trip B setting).
3. Turn the key to OFF.
4. Place your finger back on the odometer button, press and hold. At the same time, turn the key back to "On".
5. Hold the odometer button in until the MAINT REQD light goes out...should take about 8-10 seconds.

Car starts and dies almost immediately

I had a Ford F150 New at dealers, It did the same thing, come to find out the dealer had given me the wrong key, and the chip did not match the ignition system. Maybe your chip has malfunctioned.

If you want low maintenance and long term reliability then you need to find something with less miles and a warranty. Yes, the motor and trans will last well over 200k if maintained properly but all the little parts that make it all happen can pick away at you. You can't spend 10g and expect a 30g truck.
