They fit into one of the freeze plugs on the engine block. You drain the coolant from the tap on the radiator. You drill a hole in the freeze plug and pull it out. Then you install the block heater. Some have a toggle that grips from inside, some are pushed in the hole and tightened down with a bracket. Use silicone around it before you insert it. Fill with coolant and burp the air out. Put the radiator cap on and check for leaks.

They quit using those and it is controlled by the ECM, there is a fuel pump relay now that usually fails BUT you listed an ambiguous year span across 10 model years so it is hard to say.

IF you changed the battery before this happened then the IPM or BCM has lost its memory and you will have to take it to a dealer to have it reflashed. IT is not the ECM

First - take it to a professional!!
I'm assuming this Kia has "fixed itself".. - broken down..
There are so many things that could be wrong... 1. Engine 2. Transmission . 3. Differential(s) 4. Tires
My money is on one of the first two...

It is 4in X 5 3/4in or 4in x 5in. Most all your double din stereo's are 4in wide by 6in long. The double din only means it is twice the size as a regular car stereo.

I need a lot more information from you to help. There are a number of unknown potential reasons the battery and charging system are still not working. More than likely the new parts are ok but you can not assume that they are. Suspect everything. Do you have any test equipment to check the battery and charging system state? I need you to charge the battery back to 100 percent. We don't know if there is a short or parasitic draw so disconnect the battery before charging. After the battery is charged *BE CAREFUL*. Have safety glasses and water readily available if the battery explodes. You need to quickly wash the acid off your body. Note: Immediately wash your clothing or just throw them away. Battery acid will ruin clothing if the acid isn't diluted soon. I'm a master mechanic. In my life so far I have had two defective batteries explode in my face. Thank GOD I was wearing the safety glasses. Now load test battery. If not possible, hold off and temporarily connect the battery terminals. Connect the positive side first then momentarily connect the negative side. Was there a big blueish wight ark? If so, remove the terminal for a breif second and reconnect the ground again. Did it have the same big large ark or was it mild or tiny this time? If the spark was mild install both battery terminals and tighten. Start the car verify that the alternator is charging. What is it charging at at idle? At 1500 RPMS? What is it charging at with the heater on (At high speed) and high beams are on too. The alternator should support the system between 13.5 to 14.5 volts. Run your tests, write down your results and let me know if you are all set or need more help. Good luck.

The RPM gauge is an electrical component that appears to be malfunctioning and has nothing to do with the car starting. the engine runs on fuel along with spark to the spark plugs to ignite the fuel. the RPM gauge only gives you the actual RPM of the engine when it is running but in your case the RPM gauge is not functioning which indicates the gauge is faulty.

A camshaft is internal to an engine so I would suspect it might be in there. But it could be other places.I would suggest learning how to use search engines , then search for 2000 kia rondo engine parts. It will amaze you as what you can find.
