Iv got no revircing lights no sentral locking no radio no interia lights


There is a body computer for the vehicle which is probably on its way out. These are about 400 dollars and sometimes need programming. This is usually what the problem is with multiple low voltage symptoms.

Replaced ac condensor and now the radio, clock, interior lights won't turn on


Radio and clock/interior lights are two different circuits. Check your fuse block to see if it has power.

I accidentally got the negative and positive leads crossed while changing the battery on a 2000 Kia Sportage and it blew the main power fuse block. I replaced the fuze block and got power for all the...


Most have a fuse block under the hood and one under or at the driver side of the dash....It probably wont be in plain sight without removing a plastic shield...check owners manual for the location.They seem to always put them in a good hidden place away from any danger to the fuses.If you dont have a owners manual I would call kia dealer and ask for location.

Radio, clock, interior light and central locking not working


This is as a result of a short occurring most likely in the radio harness.

It happened me while working on a customers car. In my case checked all fuses and they all appeared fine, both those under the hood/bonnet and those underneath the steering wheel.

After studying the workshop electrical schemmatics for the car it appears that the clock, interior lights, central locking receiver and radio permanent live/battery are all on the one line.

In effect damage had occurred after the internal fuse panel, therefore all fuses were ok and supplying power across them, but at some point after there was a break in the wire.

However you DO NOT need to remove dash and or replace harnesses to rectify.

Look at the fuse panel underneath the steering wheel. Slot 18 (bottom RHS) and you will see in raised plastic 'BACK UP'. Inserting a 10A fuse here will restore the interior lights, radio, clock and your central locking.

There is a small plastic piece in the way which prevents a fuse going in. Simply use a thin pair of pliers, scissors or a screwdriver (or similar tool) to break this and all pieces of it away until you are able to insert the 10A mini blade fuse.

Problem Sorted!

(I believe the fact this back up exists is because the designers of electrical system at mitsibushi realised it had shortcomings or this would be a potential problem - and included the back up for such an occurence)
