Hi, well where do we start here, i take it you have got the car running, your lucky not to have fried the ecu or ignition control module if you had fried these your talking alot of money.

anyway as for the stereo their should be an inline fuse on the live wire at the back of the stereo so if you locate the live wire in the back of stereo then follow it into the dash and you should find an inline fuse, this would have blown as the stereo has a permanent live to store the stations, what they mean by reset the stereo is the security code but as your stereo is not lighting up then the fuse us your problem.

are you sure you have checked all the fuses in the fuse box i would double check to rule out that being the problem its best you remove one at a time and check if its blown and replace if not or use new one if you find a blown fuse.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

    let me know what you find ok if you have multi meter then check to see if you have any voltage to the aux/radio fuse in the fuse box because if you have power their then that means the power problem is between the fuse box and the stereo and aux lights, let me know what you find ok, ill ask around about your make and model to see if their are any other areas you should be looking at ok,

    keep me informed and ill let you know what i find out ok

    hi, if you have power going to the connectors at the back of the stereo then this would point towards a blown resistor in the stereo the problem is depending on how much the repair would cost compared to a new stereo, at least you have power going to the stereo so this saves you tracing wires from the fuse box to try and locate a short or inline fuse, the chance of getting the stereo repaired cheaper than replacing it is pretty slim but it all depends on what parts need replacing

How do I remove the main fuse in an 02 Suzuki Grand Vitari XL7?


Sparks do fly, the last connection on the cables is ground
to a metal , on engine not battery,
this will make a small, spark. all do, that. done right.
but if done backwards, a huge spark with the 2 batteries bucking each other, and damage will happen.!
yes you may blow the main fuses,
my guess you blew the 80amp fuse in the main fuse box under hood.
did you put the new battery in correctly Plus to PLUS
and NEG to NEG lugs, if not, BOOM AGAIN.
open hood,
fuse 1, if it ok, then the others fuse to the right blew.
when fuse 1 blows, all things die. zero power to anything in car
including head lights, (head lights are always the first check)

My 2006 kia spectra speedometer is not working wat cud be the problem


2006 kia spectra speedometer not working. Try this, I just did it and it worked. Disconnect both battery cables and touch them together for about 3 seconds, then connect them back to the battery. This causes the main computer to re-load all computer programs. It worked on my kia, speedometer now working. It also worked on my 2004 Chevy Silverado to correct an AC/Heating problem just after installing a new battery. The truck blew hot and cold air at same time with only AC on.

03 kia won't start


Hi do you have any power at all ie when you turn the ignition on do you get all the dashboard lights light up as normal and can you use the headlights etc if you can are the lights bright or not.

If you have no power at all then the chances are the battery needs replacing or it could even be that the alternater needs replacing and then your battery has run flat.

The best thing to do is either charge your battery up and then try your car again if it starts up as normal but their is a picture of the battery lit up on the dashboard then this indicates that the alternater needs replacing.

If after charging the battery you still have no power at all then this would indicate that the leads coming from the battery are loose or not connected at all.

The main problem with the leads from the battery is with the earth leads one should go to the body work you will need to undo this and check that this is not corroded where it touches the body work you can use sand paper to remove any corrosion
The other earth lead connects to the engine check this is still connected and free from corrosion.

Check also the possitive lead from the battery that goes to the starter motor check this is still connected also as this is the main lead from the battery.

You could try using jump leads from someone elses car onto your battery this way if you still had no power it would then 100% be the leads at fault.

If after connecting the jump leads you thne have power and can then start the car this would then indicate that either the battery is at fault or the alternater the way to test this would be when the car is running at night time park up agains a wall about 10 feet away with the head lights on full beam facing the wall no when you rev the engine up the lights should shine slightly brighter then when you stop revving it should go slightly dim if it does this then the alternater is ok and the battery needs replacing.

If the lights dont go any brighter then this suggests that the alternater needs replacing.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Radio not working


I believe the Kia has 2 fuses for the radio, one in the cabin, and one in the engine compartment. Check them both. If they are good, your radio is toast.
