  • THE TIME I AM ONLINE, 7 days a week normally online around midday and then late evening until early morning.
  • PHONE CALLS are automatically offered by the website normally after my first reply. I complete calls where I feel it is a benefit.
  • UPLOADED LINKS I SEND, if I upload dropbox links, they will open on a home PC, often they fail on a work PC, on a phone use the box on the top right of your phone screen for direct download.

Can I get the year, make model?

Auto or manual HVAC?

or cig lighter
Kia Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Technician replied 18 days ago

I do not work on cars where cables are reversed. It is an electrical mess. I can post the wire diagrams for the issues you mentioned but beyond that, I can not diagnose it, I would need to opt out.

Hello I'm here to help

Kia Mechanic: eric remington,

I have been repairing vehicles for over 35 years. The way I check fuses is to use a test light or meter. start vehicle, turn on lights and ck every fuse, both sides of fuse, in every fuse box (some vehicles have 3 or 4)...using an owners manual provides a map. sometimes the cover will identify the fuses. If you still don't know which fuses to check and I still ck all (because sometimes a fuse on one circuit can affect another circuit) fuses. a test light is preferred method for me. I am here if you have questions. if this task is beyond your abilities let me know and I will advise further.

Kia Mechanic: eric remington,

The reason you want to ck this way is because simply looking at fuse does not mean that the fuse is receiving or transferring power

Do you have owners manual

Ask Your Own Kia Question
Customer reply replied 18 days ago
I have both but prefer to use test light myself. don't have owners manual but have the wire diagrams for both the power windows and heater blower motor. I'll explain to you what I've told the others. 2002 sportage just bought it. Lady I got it from said it all worked before the last time they started it. Battery was completely dead. They jump started it but said bells, whistles, and horns were going off. would cranked over but not start. found that person connected jumper cables backwards. connected them properly and car started. after that car had no radio, interior light, power windows or heater blower motor.I found that the main fuse in fuse box under hood (60 amp) popped. replaced it. still nothing. looking more I found memory fuse popped. replaced it. got radio and interior light back. still no power window motors or blower motor. still looking for more reasons for this.

y​es good job...fuse for starter signal only works when key in crank position. headlight fuses may only lite up when headlights are actually on high beam low beam etc . So you would like a schematic for blower motor circuit and window circuit?
