#323 of 707 Battery drained by fuel pump
Apr 01, 2008 (7:55 pm)
I have a 2002 Kia Sportage that a new battery will go dead in 24 hours. If I remove the FUEL PUMP RELAY or take the INJ FUSE out, then the battery will stay up to normal power. Any ideas? Thanks, Joe

The fuel pump relay normal operation needs 2 conditions:
it takes +12V from the Main relay....so this relay would have to be ON in the first place. Then the f.p. relay coil takes it ground side from the computer...so it would mean something weird on that side too....both at same time a very low probability.
The INJ fuse in fact cuts 12V to a lot of things, including the feed to the fuel pump relay power contact, which is then HOT at all times.
My guess is the fuel pump relay is stuck..power contacts are welded.
YOu could test that by removing the relay and testing the relay with an ohm meter or with a continuity tester between contacts 1 and 5. They are probably shorted.
Change the f.p. relay. (a frequent culprit).

Thank you very much for your reply! I am very grateful for the pictures and they are very helpful. I will be trying to change it on a 2000 Sportage 2wd, automatic.
Thank you again, and be well...

The computer, Fuel pump relay and MAP sensor have all been replaced, still does it. There is a ground output to the relay from computer with key off. Some one or the factory put a jumper across the relay output to the coil which makes the relay latch on, is this factory or someones bandaid? I remove it and the car will not start.

... There is a ground output to the relay from computer with key off.
YOu mean the ground side of the fuel pump relay coil is grounded permanently ?
Some one or the factory put a jumper across the relay output to the coil I remove IT and the car will not start.
WHich relay? We are still talking the F.P. relay? " IT" means the jumper of the relay?
THis is not clear....don't understand.
Anyway, this looks like patchwork....
Check action of the MAIN relay first when you turn KEY ON.
Follow the diagram for testing where and when +12V and ground are applied to relay coils.
When you describe your tests, mention relay name, diagram pin numbers and wire color to report your findings.
#328 of 707 Fuel Filter Question for a 2002 Kia Sportage 4x4
Apr 05, 2008 (5:46 am)
I was wondering if anyone can tell me where the fuel filter is located on a 2002 KIA Sportage 4x4? I can't seem to find a diagram anywhere, and it isn't listed in my book. Any help you can provide is GREATLY appreciated. I see you can purchase a fuel filter, I just need to know where to put it!
