2000 kia sportage light indicates its in 4wd when its in 2wd and tries to go in to 4wd and 2wd off and on

The actuator on the transfer case has a ground short. This is why the light is on. And it will try to shift back and forth, if you have the switch at 2wd.

I just changed my battery in my 1999 Kia Sportage ,radio is on 1 station,nothing will change except vol.

pull the radio back up fuse-reset the radio (has to be left for at least 10 seconds) then plug back in-if issue still present requires new unit.
beleive clarion has the contract for kia/hyundia audio. anyways aftermarket unit maybe cheaper-have a proffesional install it for the 20 bucks it gives you peace of mind and there liability.
