Question about 2001 Kia Sportage
Did you replace the fuel filter along with the fuel pump? You may have damaged the low fuel indicator when replacing the pump but as you stated, the main issue is a no start condition. Make sure that the ground wire for the pump is screwed down tight on a clean surface and make sure the wire and connector is good. It is the wire connected to one of the four screws that hold down the access plate (under the carpet behind the rear seat) to the fuel pump. Also, check the seal around the plate that is held in by the small screws(12 or 15 of them). Check for loose screws. Replace the fuel filter and remove the inlet side toward the rear. Fasten the line into a 2 litre soda bottle then crank the engine and watch to see if gas is coming out of the line. If no, you may have a new faulty pump. Hope that helps.
