Kia Troubleshooting Questions? Ask a Mechanic
Hello, does your sorento have the auto headlamp option?
Thanks, ***** ***** common things that cause this are a bad headlamp switch or bad relays. What you can do is swap out the tail lamp and high beam reelays with new ones or other ones such as the horn or ac to see if this resolves the issue, if it does you will know the relays are bad.
If swapping the relays does not resolve the problem the multifunction (headlight)switch will need to be replaced, which is a very common fault.
I'll post the relay locations below along with the headlamp switch prices and labor time. If it's something you would want to replace yourself I can provide that info as well.
and the switch prices/labor time
With them working after hitting a bump I would check the relays first. Here's the info on changing the switch, it's fairly easy. Just remember to disarm the air bag system by disconnecting the negative battery cble and waiting three minutes before working on the system.
