SOURCE: I have a 2002 Kia Sportage - idle slow when stopping at lights

Even though the fuel filter and pump are easy to replace, I would start with the IAC sensor first. It is easier to get to and is cheaper than the other two if you can find one at a wrecking yard (should be around $20). This sensor is the Idle Air Control sensor, and the computer decides how much throttle to give at idle from the readings of the sensor. If it is bad your car will idle poorly or not at all.

You can verify this two simple ways:

1. Disconnect the sensor completely and see if anything changes. If you get the same issue, then it's probably the sensor. If different then it could be fuel delivery.

2. With it all hooked up; try throttling the engine yourself at 1000-1200 rpm and see if it is smooth. If it is then it is probably the sensor. If not then could be the fuel delivery.

The sensor is under the silver and black, plastic KIA cover over the engine (4 small nuts to remove), and is center above the engine on the front side of the intake pipe.

The part looks like this:

If it seems to still be fuel delivery, the filter is (facing the engine from the front of the car) down to the left and toward the back attached to the fender well (Just to the right of and below the battery)

SOURCE: 2002 kia sportage airbag light flashing 1 -3 code,

first thing to check, how is your battery? Are the battery posts clean? next check your fuses. replace as needed. sometimes if an aftermarket stereo has been added, the wront power cord may have been splice. need to get the exact coce and find out what it means. i have never heard of a 1-3 code, usualy there are in the form of T0222 or T444 or something close to that.
hope this helps a bit, the actual error code would help quite a bit

SOURCE: resetting airbag on 2002 kia rio

Typical code readers (OBDII) won't touch the airbag lights. Neither will disconnecting the battery and waiting. If the airbag light is flashing, there's a code involved. The system may or may not work when needed. If it's on steady, the system is failed and will not deploy when needed. Typically, it's a connector in the various harnesses involved. Unfortunately, the Kia shop manuals just say "replace everything" so they're no help. The dealer has the very expensive code reader to read & reset the airbag light. In other words, $$$.

How do you get airbag codes out of 01 kia sportage


You have to read them with a higher quality code reader. The same plug that you check "engine light" codes with will also do ABS, airbags, and many other systems. The basic engine code reader will not do the other systems - just the PCM codes (engine and trans). See if any of the auto part stores, service centers, etc in your area that read codes for free have a machine that will read airbags. But remember that a code must be there for light to be on. If you clear the code and issue is still there (usually bad clock spring in steering wheel) the light will just come back on.

2002 kia sportage air bag light flashing is this current code or a latched code


The airbag code will not go away until the problem is fixed.More than likely they is a defective airbag module and you will need a scan tool to find out which one is bad.

06 kia sportage airbag control module


If your refering to the light on top of the dash that says "psgr air bag not connected" here;s the deal.

The module is activated when someone sits in the seat. Turn the key on and the notification will light. Go around to the psgr side of the car and sit in the seat and the light should go out.

RESET SWITCH


You can't. If the airbag light is on, there is a defect in the bag. Get to your dealer or other qualified shop. There may be a recall on this if there are multiple issues out there.
