    cruise control problems

  • pacrhat Mar 14, 2009

    My 2004 Kia Optima V6 with 93k miles has a cruise control that operates intermittently. The switch light on the dash comes one, but the "Cruise" light by the gauges does not, or it comes on then goes out.

I have a 2004 Kia Optima and it left me stranded on the road, came to a complete stop, I turned off the ignition then turn the key again and it started up fine. It had happen a couple of weeks ago and...


You need to have the codes checked. when you cycled the key , you were resetting the ECM. This didn't fix the problem. Get the codes and let me know. We can go from there. There are to many things to list that can shut down engines. And you don't need to buy expensive parts that you don't need.

My 2006 Kia Optima brake lights stay on constantly only when the car is running. When the car is shut off, they will function correctly. All fuses ok. Not sure where else to check.


Does your cruise control work? If not it is the brake light switch. It will be a small mechanical switch that will be activated when pushing down on the brake pedal. May need a new switch or just adjusting.

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.

Where is the OIL FILTER for the 2004 Kia Optima?


For the 2001 kia optima I have found the oil filter between the front passenger side tire and the engine. You can see it if you turn the wheels all the way to the left, although it helps if the filter cover is a bright color. To change it I had to remove the tire. I hope this helps.

Air bag


If the air bag light is blinking count the blinks for the code. Example.. If the air bag light flashes once and then a short pause and then two blinks you would have a code 12. and so on. If it just stays on you will need to take it into a repair shop and get it checked. My best guess without looking at it would be that the clockspring is not working properly. Most of the time when the clockspring goes out other things stop working like the horn or cruise control or something that is on the steering wheel. Hope this helps.
