    My kia sportage manual 2001 4x4. Engine shuts down and blows the indicator fuse when you hit a bump. Why does the engine shut down when this happens, as the engine fuse is good. Does the indicator fuse go through the electronic control module which controls the engine.

My cruise control on my 2001 Kia Sportage stopped working.


Check your repair manual where the vacuum hoses for the cruise controls are (engine bay). Maybe one of the hoses came off or has a leak.

2000 kia sportage the meter fuse intermittingly breaks ,cant figure it out


My experience with a kia sportage is that the big fuses are simply inserted to the fuse box located in front of the battery at the engine bay. The plastic holders gets brittle over a span of time and due to the heat inside the engine bay. Most often the fuse loosens up and causes fuse blow out. I had 4 successive fuse blows in 2 months time that i decided to change the whole fuse holder with a new one. It Worked

Ac blows hot air in kia sportage


A/C BLOWS HOT. Radiator in Kia is rather small it overheats quickly. I should have checked the simplest thing first which was the radiator coolant level. I had a slow leak in radiator it was losing coolant but not very noticeably. I initially took it to have the a/c system checked all was good,they referred me to an electric repair shop but all the fuses and relays were good. I don't normally check coolant level as it is checked by dealer when oil is changed,this is a 2nd car and I don't drive it daily. Since coolant level was dropping slowly the engine would not overheat,however coolant got low enough to trigger emergency a/c compressor shut down switch to keep engine from overheating. That's why a/c would cool for 10 mins. in the morning but then shut off. Simple fix I filled the radiator and overflow tank. A/C started working perfectly again. After doing this a few times I realized the radiator had a leak which eventually had to be replaced $700.00 parts and labor. Its all good now.

I have a Kia sportage 2000 4x4 the indicator fuse keeps blowing, unfortunately this cuts out the motor. The fuse needs to be replaced to re start the engine. The fuse lasts for a while then blows...


the problem could be coming from the indicator relay as doesn't blow fuse instantly, try with the 4 way flasher on and see if relay get over heated , electronics work in weird and varied ways ,most fuses supply power to more than one function , check what the other function's run from the problem fuse , this will , hopefully explain why the engine cuts out,

My kia sportage v reg i have wiper problems


start by replacing the fuse, then dissconect the wipermotor, turn switch on all speeds, then check fuse, if fuse is good then switch is not the short, next try the washers, same concept, if fuse is okay then not the washer pump, next plug in wipers and turn on if fuse pops, then wipermotor is no good,

check in your owners manual under fuses,15 amp seems low for a fuel pump,i would think it should be at least 25amp,it will tell you what fuse feeds what and what fuse should be there
