Find the fan relay and unplug it, fan will stop.
Buy a replacement relay and plug in (same type of relay). Fan should stay off, if it starts again then look for a faulty temperature switch or short in the wiring.

SOURCE: CAN/T FIND THE SPARK PLUGS ON A 03 KIA SORENTO

The 2003 Kia Sorento with V6 has the spark plugs located under black plastic covers in the center channel of each cylinder head. Several brackets, cables, and hoses must be moved out of the way to access them. The manifold air intake tube needs to be removed on the right bank.
The left cylinder bank has coil-on-plug assemblies while the right bank has more conventional spark plug caps with sealing assemblies. The coil-packs are held with two 10mm bolts each and are difficult to get to. Use universal-joint sockets and an extension.

Why after I shut off the engine in my 2011 cadillac SRX would a fan continue to run under the hood and will not stop until the battery is dead.


coolant fans will run continuously if the fan relay is bad. even with car ignition off. this may cause them to stay on even when the vehicle is off, God Bless!

2003 kia sorento, a/c heater controls are not working


There are fuses inside the car and under the hood. Check owners manual and investigate possible fuse blown. Ac,blower motor, dash, ac clutch, ac relay, blower relay. Always disconnect battery when working with anything electrical. Saves headaches

04 KIA SORENTA ac coolant fan stays on even if when car is shut off....


There has been known promblem with the 03- early 05 sorento of radiator fan staying on even after engine is turn off, it is claim to be a electrical malfuction in the engine termalstat. However you may just need to check your coolant level and fill it up as there is also a promblem to the sorento's having a leaking radiator coolant resevior too. Pretty much I own a 03 sorento, and it has been nothing but promblem, but glad I got rid of it. However like I said, check your coolant level, and fill it up with 50/50 coolant to recommended level. Should be able to solve the promblem, since it seems your engine is lacking coolant and is overheating, and the fan turn on automatic even after you have shut of your car to help cool it down.

Lights


There should be a Fuse Relay Box under the Hood that Contains a Relay for the Lighting. Replace this Relay and they should operate Correctly.
