2011 Kia Sportage and when in reverse it continuously beeps until put into drive. I tried to wipe the sensors on the bumper but its still doing it. What can I do to fix this?

Maybe you can't. That is probably not a fault and nothing to do with the parking sensors. Many vehicles have a safety feature to alert anyone behind you that you are reversing. It operates from a switch when you select reverse gear. There have been tragic tales of children and adults run over on home driveways. The beep alarm helps to prevent these accidents. This scenario applies if it is louder outside the vehicle than it is inside the vehicle. If the beeping is inside only, there is indeed a fault. The only way to find which sensors is faulty is to have an auto electrician connect a pro grade scan tool computer and check the parking sensors. https://www.justanswer.com/kia/cnn3y-backup-sensor-system-2011-kia-sportage-not.html and https://www.google.com/search?q=2011+kia+sportage+reversing+alarms ..

so no transmission told of many.used. on different engines world wide. no country told, and no Kia (killled in action? told) transmission told no problems told no DTC errors. take to do what? they all must work not just one, if you scanned the PCM it will report what transmission errors happened , forgot to scan it fail you will. most trans missions 2 speed to 10 ,electronic do not have same solenoids on the valve body all of them but some do or just 2 or 4. why not read the parts list at KIA dealer and see that for your self. USA answer, only, I do not talk about parts NOT HERE. KIA USA SHOWS ONLY 2 SOLENOIDS DIFFR. p/N BOTH why not ask them.? for Transaxle parts DTC ERRORS LIKE THIS?

Took my car to have check engine light checked. It

In modern cars so much can go wrong to indicate an issue and a computer in the car can get confused as to what is really occurring. In most cars a misfire indicates either an incorrect firing order, shorted wires, bad plugs, or bad coil. Since you have replaced the wires and plugs we can rule those out. Im also assuming after the second engine code you pulled #2 plug and made sure it wasnt fouled with oil, was gapped correctly, and reinserted. To produce a sufficient spark for combustion the alternator sends power to a "Coil" which is in reality a storage point that then sends an amplified electrical current down the spark plug wire to the cylinder to fire the plug. If the car is truly misfiring you will notice a rough idle, fluctuating RPM's, and lack of acceleration. If you are experiencing any of these I would look at replacing the coil. If you arent experiencing any of these I would have the code cleared again and complete one drive cycle 100 miles and then have codes read again. If you still get a Misfire error some other causes known to occur with Rio's are fuel filter issues, gas caps, and fuel injector issues. Although rare, these can cause issues with the cars fuel delivery and emissions which can confuse the sensor in the ECU. I would try injector cleaner, replace the fuel filter, and gas cap . If funds are an issue then based on symptoms I would start with injector cleaner first $3, Filter $12, Gas cap $12, Coil $48 to $200+

I need wiring connection details neutral safety switch. for Kia Sportage 2000 model two wheel drive automatic transmission.

The "neutral safety switch" has been incorporated into the more sophisticated "range switch" on modern vehicles. A range switch detects any selected shift lever position (not just park/neutral) and reports that information to the transmission control module (TCM). There are seven wires in the range switch connector on a 2000 Kia Sportage. Power is supplied to the switch from METER Fuse (10A) via a green/red wire. The remaining six wires correspond with each gear position; Park (P), Reverse (R), Neutral (N), Drive (D), 2nd (2), and Low (L). All of these gear position wires run to the TCM as well as the Instrument Cluster. The wire colors are as follows; P = blue/green, R = green, N = blue, D = blue/white, 2 - blue/white, and L = white/red.

My 2008 Kia Spectra won't start

Probably one of the main fuse blew. Start by removing foiled fuse. Use a 12 v light tester and check main fuses first. Might as well check all the fuses. Replace as needed.

2011 Kia Rio 1.4, no spark in ignition?

When you disconnected the battery, you broke the links in the key and transponder for the security system. As a result, the ECM is withholding a spark to the ignition. Number 1 tip when changing batteries is to maintain power to the system with a battery charger, jump leads or a couple of lengths of wire. https://www.google.com/search?q=2011+kia+rio+reset+security+system ..
