Hi

Before you turn out the light you should have a code read carried out just to make sure nothing sinister is going on with the management system.

If the car is running ok then the code will probably either pertian to the O2 sensor, the EVAP system, or a drop in catalytic efficiency, but this isn't set in stone, just the most popular scenarios.

Very best regards

One of 2 ways.......

#1) mounting screws on the exterior of the brake light lens.

#2) in the trunk behind the carpeting, usually this is the easiest way. either way the bulb is held in by a twist lock bulb holder.

SOURCE: 2004 KIA Optima LX timing belt/water pump

The thing is your doing the timing belt the water pump is right their with it . it should cost you much more at all besides the cost of the water pump. When doing a timing belt I have a rule that I go by The timing belt/seals =cam , crank , any pulley & tensioner & water pump all get replaced at the same time. I did a t-belt on a Audi A-8 very complex whole front of car has to come off as well, he didnt want to do w-pump & thermostat his thermostat was their as well not even a month later the water pump gave out he had to pay double the price because he didnt want to do it when I had it apart the first time. And make sure mechanic is ase certified . good luck

This answer makes a mountain out of a mole hill! There are two screws directly under the light accessible from the trunk (in two hole, the wires come out of one of them)- just unscrew and you can manuever out without taking off the whole back panel.

Brake light not working on Kia 2005 Optima tali lights work, bulbs replaced brake light switch replaced but still no brake lights


Check the space gap between the brake lever to the brake switch.

Also check the connector to the brake switch.

You have to look under the dash carefully.

These is not too much room under there.

Just ran you hand along the brake paddle.

Press the brake switch by hand and see is brake light go on.

Check all connectors for corrosion.

2004 kia optima,break lights stay on,taillights will not come on,bulbs are ok


It sounds as if your brake light switch is bad, or, your brake pedal return spring isn't pulling the pedal back towards the seat.

First, just pull up on the brake pedal, opposite direction of when you are applying them & see if the lights go off. If yes, you'll need a new return spring. If not, then usually the switch mounted up above the pedal is defective & needs to be replaced.

I believe once that is corrected, the lights should work properly if your parking lights are working, as they both use the same circuit. If not, you'll have to do some testing of those wires & backtrack to the light switch.

The Brake light switch also can have the cruise control switch & other controls associated with it but not always, depending on the specific Model & Year & other options so testing it could require a wiring diagram, I've included a link that will give you the wiring colors for the brake light switch itself. Testing the wiring is the only way to determine any other condition that would be causing that to happen.

Here's the link for the wiring:
http://www.commandocaralarms.com/wiring/2003-2005/Kia/Optima/893.html

It shows the brake switch wires as GREEN.
Good Luck.

Brake lights


Hi,
Looks like you are suspecting the brake light switch as the culprit and based on the info you've provided, I tend to agree with you.
I'd replace the switch and see if that does the trick. It shouldn't cost an arm and leg.
Hope this helps... Good luck!
