Remove rear panel from gate and check for power, no power trace back from there, (poss break where it goes through from gate to body).

SOURCE: no power to the passenger rear window

I assume you've tried with the driver's door switch and the rear passenger switch and nothing happens. If so, then it's unlikely that both switches went bad and it points to a bad motor...
You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. You can test the switches at this point to see if they work. If not, you can then pull off the weather seal and access the regulator, motor inside the door that will be held in by several bolts

SOURCE: I need a picture or list of fuses

Usually there is a sticker on the back side of the fuse cover showing the fuse locations. Look in the owners manual that's in the glove box (if you have one), that will also show the list.

SOURCE: rx330 won't open rear gate

Inside the glove box on the left side there is an on/off switch, which m,ay have been bumped off thereby shutting off the power controls to the hatch. Check that first. Then press the unlock button on your key twice, then test all 3 power hatch buttons to test them, one each on lower left dash by the gas cap door release, one on fob and the one at the hatch. If they still do not work it is possible your door may need to be 'initialized" by your dealer due to power failure. I have seen this with seats and windows but never with the rear door....

SOURCE: my air condition stop

  • Start the car and turn the air conditioning on. Allow the engine to run a few minutes so the air can cool. Check to make sure you have the proper buttons selected. This simple step may uncover the root of the problem.
  • See if the problem is as simple as a blown fuse. If the temperature controls on the dashboard seem to work correctly but have no effect on the air, then this is likely the problem. Find the interior fuse box in a Kia on the driver's side. It is located near the floor. Remove the kick board to get to it.
  • Check the control panel next in your Kia . If the air conditioning controls are not working at all, then the control panel is likely to blame. Remove the trim plate surrounding the center instrument panel. Detach the electrical connectors and remove the control panel.
  • Listen for the blower motor while the engine is running. The sound should increase when the air pressure is turned to high. Remove the blower motor by first unplugging the negative battery connection.
  • Find the blower motor in your Kia directly in front of the glove box. You should be able to get to the blower motor without removing the glove box. Unscrew the four screws holding the motor into place and pull it downward

    SOURCE: I locked my keys in

    To avoid getting it towed to the dealer (where they'd remove the rear seat to access the trunk),
    you can get out your socket set/tool kit and remove the rear seat yourself and reach into the
    trunk. If this car has fold-down rear seat(s) or bolster(s), simply fold them down and reach in.
    Haynes manual (or online manuals) for this car aren't yet accessible, but a call to your Kia
    dealership's service dept. may get a mechanic on the line who can give you a few good tips, or
    pay a handy neighbor to figure out how to remove (and re-install) the rear seat to get access to
    the trunk...

    Maybe a loose vacuum hose under the dash, used to open/close vent doors.. I would expect that to affect the performance and gas mileage too though. Could it be the serpentine belt noise slightly muffled by the firewall, etc.?
