JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far? Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: yes , only one ,the resistor before disconnects is overheating bad
JA: Have you checked the coolant? Have you checked for a leak in the cooling system?
Customer: everything is fine only electric
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Kia Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.

Hi. Have you checked the cabin air filter? If it is plugged there will be lack of air flow through the heater box and the resistor will not get cooled down. I would check the cabin air filter first.
