Question about 2001 Kia Sportage
I have a 2001 KIA sportage. The passenger side front door window is stuck open. Was able to open but not close.
The back pasenger door will not operate at all.
Both wendows on the drivers side operate OK.
Is there a fuse for the pasangers side windows?
Where is the relay for pasenger side windows?
Any help will be greatly appreceated. It looks like it may rain anytime.
need step by step procedure needed.
Thank you in advance.
I have a 99 Kia Sportage that had the exact same problem. You can fix the switches without having to spend ANY money to replace them! You first have to remove the door panel. Disconnect the wires going to the switch and then remove the switch from the panel. Remove all the screws from the bottom of the switch, including the ones holding the metal clips. Then carefully pry each side upwards from the locking tabs and pull the switch apart. BE CAREFUL not to lose the little metal rockers inside the switch! Now all you have to do is clean all the contacts and rockers with a brass wire brush, or fine sanpaper, (or even a good ink eraser will work). Then put the switch back together, reinstall it, and test it out! You'll be back in business and didn't spend a dime! I did this with my 98 Ford Windstar, too.

You need to check the wire harness from the vehicle to the door for broken wires.the harness that goes through the door post and into the door gets a lot of flexing and will eventually break the wires in two.if this is not the case ,you may just need to replace the switch.
