SOURCE: 2004 kia spectra no a/c

needs looking at because it could be switch that allows it to turn on if sufficient gas is present ,or a problem with the clima compùter ,but to do anything you will need the special machine to empty the system then check things out so take to an authorised AC garage ,because these systems are a potential accident and you could lose a finger with frostbite in a matter of less than 2 seconds .therefore i will not tell you how to look for a soloution because of the dangerous nature of playing with air con

SOURCE: kia sportage fuel gauge unit not working ?

hi this sounds like it could be a couple of things, first the obvious have you checked the fuse? or it might be the relay in the fuse box might need replacing, and the fuel sender unit in the fuel tank, you also can check out the wires going to the sender unit, sometimes you can find these under the rear seat or in the boot/trunk area might be a simple case of one of the wires have come adrift there is a couple of things to check before having the sender unit replaced or the Gage..hope that helps

MY 2008 kia spectra just shut down while i was driving it wont crank and the gages or nothing goes over. It wont crank at all


You probably need to loosen the battery terminals and clean them. What you are saying is typically what happens if the battery posts are very corroded or, if one, or both of the cables are loose. Look for corrosion around the cables too.

Just replaced fuel pump/sending unit in a 2004 Bravada for a no start condition....now the gas gage doesn't work? Dropped the tank again and put OLD sending unit in....key turned on tank reads full (full...


Your replacement fuel pump assembly float got stuck somehow rendering it useless. also make sure the electrical harness was connected properly on the replacement. I take it for granted that the replacement was new? Perform a bend test on your replacement fuel pump assembly with an ohm meter. Move the float and see if the ohm meter resistance changes.

2001 Kia spectra thermostat. My heat went out and I am trying to trouble shoot the problem


Will Temp Gage Register any Temp? or is it just an Idiot Light?
If this is the case then You will need to run till it reaches Approximate Operating Temp, Generally 15 mins will get you there @ idle,Feel Hoses from Radiator, Are they HOT? then if you can reach Heater Hoses { usually 1/2 in/ 34 in hose } Are They HOT?, Are You getting Air out of the Vents? Is it Hot or Cold? Check AntiFreeze LVL's in Expansion Tank, Is it Full? or Empty? If Empty Fill With Recommended fluid Mixture

Fuel gauage not reading on 2005 kia sedona


the fuel sender in the tank is probably the problem, they do wear out quick on KIA some models.

Gas gage says empty,when it is half full.Why wont car start


The incline is apparently enough to have the feed from your tank exposed to air and not gas. If you can let the vehicle roll back and turn the wheel so your facing in the opposite direction before you attempt to start it again. This will allow the fuel to feed out of the tank like it is supposed to and should start fairly easily. Since the line is empty now, it make take a few seconds more than usual to prime with fuel and crank. Parking on inclines will get you if they're steep and your tank isn't full. Just remember this and next go round if you have to do this again, make sure your vehicle is parked in the opposite direction and the feed tube out of the tank will still be covered with gas.

Start with the simple and replace the fuel filter. The fuel filter should be replaced every 15,000 miles or once a year to ensure the fuel system is running 100%. Auto Zone will have the fuel filter and can give you the step by step instructions to getting the job done with common tools. If it's the fuel pump failure, you have not gotten the car restarted. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to know you got your car running 100% again soon and please rate.

My car turns off


Sounds like you have vapor lock. I had that same problem in another car (different make and model) that I owned. Unfortunately there is no fix for this as its merely condensation happening in your gas tank. Maybe some authorized gas treatment from Kia?
