The fan should come on when you turn the ac on, but it should also come on when the engine is hot to cool it down. Secondly you will have to have the codes read to find out whats wrong with the air bag. Good Luck

The fan should come on with the A/C OR if the engine gets hot. If the engine is overheating at stops, it is not getting a proper command signal from the computer. Is the car overheating?
The airbag light indicates that the system has detected a fault. The system will not work while the light is on, so if you want your airbags to work, you will need to have the system scanned for trouble codes.

My 2005 Kia Sorento, temp gauge is midway between half and high. Just started, cooland and oil are fine. Heater works fine. Belts are good. What could be wrong. Check engine light came on this morning too


May have a cooling fan that has malfunctioned mounted on the radiator. Check under the hood for a fan or two mounted on the inside or outside the radiator. If you find one or two, start the car and let idle watching for fan(s) to kick on when thermostat gets hot.

Hi I have Kia sorento 2003 and my trouble is idle go up to 3000rpm to shift from 1 to 2 and the idel some time no stable go at round 200to 500 rpm with OBD 2 code P1330. your help will be appreciated...


Dear Allamid,

Seems to me like you need angine diagnostics performed. Your idle speed is way to high here. Mapping the engine should pinpoint and solve the problem. This is typic\lly done by nothing more than plugging a laptop into the onboard computer that governs the engine.

By the sounds of the OBD code that you have, you already knew thisabove procedure.Even so, have the Engine management unit checked, and get someone to check thermostat,engine timing,and might be worth having a full service done.

If you still dont get anywhere with this,get in touch with me andI will investigate the matter thoroughly for you,but in the meantime I do hope that this actually does resolve your issue.

yours sincerely

2003 kia sorentos engine cooling fan wont come on


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. Check your fan fuses first. They might have blown. If that don't help, you probably have a bad wire or bad fan. You can test the wires with a voltage meter to determine which it is. For now, you can hook a wire to the fan straight to the battery if the fan is not defective. This will allow your fans to work while the wire is on the battery.

Air conditioner quit cooling,


I have a 2007 Kia Sorento EX. I had a similar problem. I checked for leakage in the nozzle. The nozzle was repaired and I refilled gas. This resolved the cooling problem.
