Question about Kia Sorento
HI. Lets start with the P0122 Code.
This code is in reference to the TPS(Throttle Position Sensor). A P0122 code essentially means that the the vehicles computer has detected that the TPS is reporting a low voltage condition. On some vehicles, the lower limit is 0.17 - 0.20 volts, respectively. This can occur if the TPS was not recently installed correctly or mis adjusted. If you have not installed it recently, than the most likely actions are to replace it, asap. Here are the most common symptoms listed below:
1. Rough idle
2. stalling during acceleration or stumbling at a red/stop light.
3. poor acceleration
If you are not experiencing those symptoms, it will most likely be intermittent and clearing the code may resolve the problem for a short time. If this should be the case, i would check the wires for rubbing against the housing or grounding faults. Again, make sure it is adjusted properly if recently installed.
The next code will be the P0700.
This is a serious transmission control unit code. You will need to take this vehicle to the dealership for the correct scan tool. You will need to extract the special codes to actual repair, correctly. Usually, the entire module will need to be replaced. A regular scanner will not pick up the TCU codes. This is a dealership code. Most Kia's are covered with a 10 year/100,000 warranty, so this should be covered.
