Kia Troubleshooting Questions? Ask a Mechanic
Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose) I prefer to work when others don't, I am here around lunch and after dinner till after midnight.
So if I understand, one license plate bulb, all rear running lights, and all front running lights are not working?
Looking over the diagrams now.
Do you own a volt meter? We need to do some wire testing at the smart junction box.
Would you like my answer to also include the wire diagram so you can see how this circuit is powered since with your lack of tools I can not help you diagnose and fix this?
Here is the wire diagram.
Page 2 in the above diagram, do the test shown below.
This is my 1st answer, but does not have to be my only answer. You the website and myself expect you to have a ~~~5 STAR EXCELLENT~~~ experience with my help. Please let me know if you are pleased by selecting a star rating above or by replying and saying your pleased. Not rating or rating 1-2 stars does not benefit you nor me in any way. Follow up and reply as often and when needed, there is no extra charge to do so.
Smart junction box.
You access the fuse box inside the car first and use the diagram below.
You would test at the back of this wire while the connector is still plugged up.
You can unbolt the SJB from the body to move it and gain better access.
If there is no power the SJB is bad.
