Check the alternator belt to see if it is loose. If not take to auto parts store and have them check alternator.

2000 kia sephia, it has a headlight dimming problem and at the same time the tail lights wont come on till you turn off the lights or hit the brake pedal.


Check all your ground connections in front and back and at the lights clean or replace connectors and tighten ground bolts.

I have a 2001 KIA Sephia I've had within the last 2 months the timing belt replaced, the fuel filter, pump & relay switch replaced, alternator and a new battery put in and it seems like I'


This will need a hands on inspection by a qualified mechanic. i suggest the Kia dealership, but at a minimum it needs to go to a different shop than the one you've been taking it to as they seem to not know what they're doing.

Why does my 2001 kia sephia squeal when i start it then again when i turn the air on


The problem is the alternator adjustment, it squeals because you have a rubber strap in touch with a metal wheel, so when it gets hot enough, the mechanism will have enough grip and will stop squealing. It gets even worse if you turn the A/C and/or the headlights on, because the car needs more electricity therefore, requiring more work from the alternator To solve this problem you have to loose the screw that holds the alternator, but only loose it to the point to be release, not disassembled, push it back until you get more tension to the belt and the wheel of the alternator and then hold it and thigh it back. You might want to do this on a brand new belt (just in case, besides, is not that expensive). I hope it helps, best regards.

All,dash lights came on-gas,all,then power dies down,lights conitually go dim,car quits running,before this i heard a squealing noise,what is going on w/car


Could be a bad alternator diode and it wasn't keeping the battery fully charged, which could be indicated by dimming lights, loss of power, or completely quitting when voltage becomes too low to properly fire plugs.

The squealing could have been a locked up alternator (probably caused by a bad bearing) and the drive belt is slipping on the drive pulley, making the squeal.

Hope this is of some help.

On dim all four headlights are on, but the inner


first i would want to know that all the headlamps are in good working order. it kind of sounds like these are also bad bulbs. you will also need to look for good ground wires just behind the headlamp assemblies. to answere your question, YES. if things were not repaired properly and without attention to detail then you could have wiring issues. on the plus side it doesnt sound too difficult. try these items first.

Headlight one side works on bright the other side works on dim


Try swapping the headlight bulbs or buying a known good bulb and testing that way. Sounds like a shorted bulb filament issue.
