2002 kia spectra gsx

Hello there. Problem is my tail and dash lights will not work,all fuses relays and bulbs are alright. If I start my car by my remote starter all lights are on again even when ignition is turned to the on position, but once I touch my break pedal,which I believe turns of my remote starter, these two lights go out again. Hope you can advise

Thanks alot.

    Did you determine the cause of this problem? I have a very similar problem with my 2004 MY (mid-year) Kia Spectra. Tail lights, dash lights, power windows, power locks, rear defroster and keyless entry don't work until the car has been driven for 10 or more miles. I suspect the cause of the problem you were experiencing is the same problem I have now.

Make sure to check your owners manual for posible extra fuse panels or boxes, some late madels come with 2 or tree fuse boxes.

Why does my tail lights and blinker lights not work in my 2002 kia spectra

Normally one would check in the following order.
1. bulbs
2. fuses
3. flashers
etc. So check the bulbs first... if they look burned out then replace them. Then see about the flasher if that bulbs look ok.

Good luck to you

You have a tail lamp fuse and a relay involved.
The wire between the fuse and the relay is orange.

Tail light out 2005 kia spectra

Most cars these day's have separate bulbs for each function ie: tail, turn, stop & back up. Turn the light's on & double check the position of the bulb on the side that is working and go from there, also before you pull your hair out check your fuse's because some model's have a fuse for each light ie: Lt low beam, Lt high beam ect... hope this help's you. Good luck!

2002 KIA Spectra GSX Dashboard lights out

you can't just look at the fuses. buy a fuse tester, usually 10 bucks or so at any parts store. then you can properly check all the fuses. chances are that's what it is, but you have to check it the right way. find the bad one, and replace it. the people at the auto store should be able to help a little. hope that helps.

I have changed the bulbs in brake lights.They dont work but the brakelight in rear window does .I am not sure which fuse if any to change.I have a 2003 Kia Carens.

It is most likely a blown fuse. If you have the owner's manual, it will tell you where the box is located (usually in the engine compartment). If you do not have a manual, look for the fuse box/ relay center either under the dash or in the engine compartment. There will be a diagram on the inside cover telling which fuse is for the tail lights/ brake lights. Pull that fuse straight out of it's socket, and replace it with an appropriately rated fuse (from any auto parts store).
