I would see if you can go to a auto parts they can read the code that will help it might be a alternator which you local parts store can check for free while its on the car.

2001 Kia Sportage goes dead while driving plus gas spews out when refueling


Need a little more info: Is it a V-6? Does it just die at random times? Kia has had problems with crank shaft position sensors. The vehicle will just die and may restart immediately or take several minutes till it will restart.

Engine Light Staying on


i had the same problem, replaced several components spending a few hundred dollars. no luck. finally put in a four dollar bottle of 108 octane booster and a half tank of premium gas, disconnected the battery for two minutes to turn off engine light, drove it 60 miles, light stayed off, passed emissions test easily. still no light, problem solved.

Check engine light is on


I would disconnect the battery for three minutes and reconnect it. That should remove the code. You will have drive the car up to about 75 miles to see if the code does or does not show up again. It may have been reading the amount of air in the system from removal of the injector.
