Customer Question
The headlights won't come...

The headlights won't come on after a clutch change out

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuses? Have you checked the bulbs?

No

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Kia?

2006 Kia Rio

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Rio yourself? What have you tried so far?

I had some locals change out the clutch and I think they missed a wire when they put the thing back together

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I heard one of the guys say to the other than "that orange wire there, it's not connected"
