Question about 2004 Kia Rio

1 Answer

I have a KIA Carens le 1.8 2003 model. The check engine warning light has come on and after further investigation the following error codes were diagnosed. P0741 & P1529. Can anyone tell me what these mean and what i need to do to repair the car. Although the car seems to be running ok, it occassionally takes a couple of seconds from accelerating to the car moving. It has also become very heavy on petrol recently. The car is an automatic. I would be very grateful if anyone could help shed some light on this problem Thanks Rob

Kia carens oil light staying on engine sluggish

Hi John, The oil pressure warning light is indicating pressure not level. You say the warning light is on at all times and the engine is losing power? I believe you should have a compression test carried out on the vehicle. It seems highly possible there has been severe damage to the engine. Is the engine emitting any strange sounds? How long has the oil light been on? How often do you service the vehicle by replacing all filters and engine oil? What engine oil do you use? Regards John

The horn of my KIA CArens has stopped working. I suspect something at the push at the steeing wheel. Any help

check horn fuse
measure voltage at horn
one wire will be earthed to car body hopefully and the other wire will get plus 12 volts when the horn is pressed.
or one wire is always 12 volts and the other wire is connected to earth when horn button pressed.
check fire wall of car some kia have horn on firewall in engine compartment. or it is under the grill in front of car.

Have the sedona scanned at an AutoZone or similar place and ask for code. they will not tell you whats wrong with it but they will give you a code. You can go from there. You can come back and tell us what the code is .
