Kia Troubleshooting Questions? Ask a Mechanic
Hi. If the 10amp meter fuse keeps blowing then there is a short to ground. The meter fuse sends power to the vehicle speed sensor, the transmission control module, the transmission range switch and the rear hatch release switch. You may be able to sort this out yourself but you will need to find the shorted wires.
Since it seems to blow over bumps, check the easiest places to look first. Check the wiring harness to the speed sensor and the trans range sensor, for and signs of the harness shorting or rubbing on something.
The wire in question should be a green/red wire. Do a visual inspection, and possible wiggle the harness to while looking for the short, and then let me know if you find anything. Thanks.
The wire is in the engine bay. The speed sensor is on the transmission. and the range sensor is on the transmission as well. It has the linkage from the shifter inside the car attached to it. The harness and wire in question will be in that general area. Thank you.
