SOURCE: KIA Sorento 4WD not enguaging

Always make sure that whenever you engage into and out of 4x4, your gear lever is on N and not P.

so to reset it in now, switch on your engine with the hand brake up. set the gear lever to N, turn the knob to 4x4 Hi... wait 10 secs....switch it back to 2Hi...wait 10 secs and then return the gear lever to P and it should be ok.

SOURCE: cruise control will not 'set' on '05 kia sportage

Check the brake lighf bulbs. If even one is burnt out, it throws the sensors.
Had the same problem replaced both bulbs and now the esp light stays off and the cruise control sets.

SOURCE: kia picanto rear brake lights will not turn off

Check the brake light switch on the brake pedal. It may need adjusting to allow brake lights to go off. The plunger on the switch needs to open when pedal is depressed, and close when pedal is released and in its normal position.

Had a free brake check done it says pads front near side 8.14mm.disc drums 15.61.off side pads 8.24,disc drums 15.91 .must be done now.is this correct.this in on a Kia picanto 2008.automatic


8.14mm (0.320 inch), 15.61mm (0.6145 in)
Is this the pads or disks and drums they're measuring? Drums at 15.61 seem to be plenty thick. Especially when they don't do much braking.

I would contact a auto parts supply company and just ask them what those specifications are for your vehicle, they should have the numbers because they sell replacement parts.

2008 Kia Optima turn signals/brake light won't always work


This is probably a bad earth connection, Try checking the connection to the rear light cluster for corrosion around the wiring plug, remove it and clean the connections, also check the bulb fittings, clean and replace bulbs into the holder. This is normally where the problem is, and could be due to water getting into the rear lights, good to check for this too.

Both ESP and ABS dash lamps came on suddenly on my 2004 KIA Amanti.


The ESP light will come on whenever the abs light is on, this is due to the ESP system cant operate if the abs system is not working.The first thing you will have to do is scan the computer for codes. the computer will store a code whenever it sees a problem and then turn on the light to warn you theres a problem and then shuts down the abs system, there are many auto part stores that scan check engine lights for free as far as the abs system i am not sure you will have to check. the codes will tell you what part of the system has failed. for example there may be a code like C 1201 left front wheel speed sensor, this code will tell you theres a problem with the left frt sensor, it may be the sensor or the wiring or connector but with a little testing the problem can be repaired. the only thing is the esp and the abs are shut down, the car can still be driven you just wont have the abs. good luck and i hope this is helpful.
