Question about 2000 Kia Sportage

1 Answer

I have a Kia sportage 2000 4x4 the indicator fuse keeps blowing, unfortunately this cuts out the motor. The fuse needs to be replaced to re start the engine. The fuse lasts for a while then blows again.....motor cuts out and so it goes on. Obviously i need to go to an auto electrician, do you have any idea where we can begin to look ? it seems a bit ridiculous to cut power to the motor when the indicator fuse blows. Do you know anyone else who has had this problem Regards Rick

The problem could be coming from the indicator relay as doesn't blow fuse instantly, try with the 4 way flasher on and see if relay get over heated , electronics work in weird and varied ways ,most fuses supply power to more than one function , check what the other function's run from the problem fuse , this will , hopefully explain why the engine cuts out,

SOURCE: removing/replacing a 2000 kia sportage 4x4 4 dr heater core

The heater is located under the dash board to the right and down from the radio. To remove and replace it you will have to remove the dash board down to the fire wall. Also, you will have to disconnect two hoses that connect up to it from the engine compartment. These are located in the back of the engine and down on the firewall about midway. Once you remove the dash board and locate the heater core you will be able to see the location of these two hoses. Removing the heater core is time consuming but it will save you about 700 dollars.

SOURCE: i dont know where to add freeon to my 1999 kia sportage 4x4

Find the A/C compressor. Look a both lines going to it. One line should be bigger than the other. The bigger line is the Low Side (suction port) follow that line it goes to the firewall to the evaporator that is in your dash. The low side pressure port is somewhere in that line between the evaporator and the compressor. That port is where you check low side pressure and add freon. Don't worry if you buy a charging kit from a part store you can't hook it up wrong, the low side port and the high side port are different sizes and the hose won't fit. With the A/C running on high, low side pressure should be about 35psi.

You can go to the dealer and have them help you get the code for the radio, if there going to charge you a crazy amount you can try www.radio-code.com. There cost is cheaper and can help you reprogram the code in your KIA. befor you go through all that, check for the code in the glove box, there might be a sticker in there or in your back pages to your manuel.
Good luck and hope this helps yougte your radio wokring again, keep me posted oh and try 0000 first.

The speedometer and rpm gauges are operated by sensors instead of cables on your model. It is very possible that either your sensors are not hooked up to your tranny or that they are in need of replacing. Check all fuses.

Kia 2000 sportage auto keep blowing fuse when starting can you tell me what is wrong


well, blowing fuses is caused by a short, has the vehicle had anything done to it before the fuses started blowing ??? and what fuses are blowing, if it is the main fuses that are 200 amp, then it could be caused by faulty wiring, or bad earth.......trust me if it is the 200 A fuse that is blowing, you will be very happy that it is, because if the manufacturer did not put that fuse there, you would be facing a vehicle fire.....i would trace the fault, or have an auto-electrician diagnose for you
