#329 of 720 Re: Fuel Filter Question for a 2002 Kia Sportage 4x4 [sheri664]
Apr 05, 2008 (5:01 am)
This is in engine compartment, bolted on right hand frame low below battery (if you have battery on right hand side, of course; right hand drive models have battery on the left) I have checked mine for a better idea.. Honest.....I did not remember seing it....went to www.kiatechinfo.com (you can register for free for a lot of first hand info). then had a look at mine..had to peek for several seconds before finding it ...I think I would remove battery to get better access, of may be from the wheel well after removing tire.....
Is this simply preventive maintenance or is there a problem you think might be linked to filter ? mine is a 2000 with 62000 miles and no problem there (but I do not know of previous maintenance as I bought it at 42k miles) and will wait until necessary, I dont like the location
...ahhh..and I just found my fuel tank was leaking again....

I've been checking closer, the output from the computer, output # 27, will not give a negative signal to the coil of the main relay, someone wrapped a jumper wire around the relay terminals which kept the engine control system powered up all the time which ran the battery down. I'm not sure why the compter will not give a negative output signal to main relay when the key is on? If I can not find what the reason is, then I will use another add on relay to power with a negative signal to the main relay from the ign switch. Do you know any reason why the computer will not give signal to main relay? Thanks for the wire diagrams, they are a big help! Thanks, Joe
#331 of 720 Power Window Issue
Apr 07, 2008 (7:08 am)
My daughter's '02 Sportage has been experiencing intermittent problems with the power window system lately. Specifically, the left rear window will lower when the switch on the driver's door is depressed, but then won't come back up when either the driver's door switch or left rear door switch is pulled up. Repeatedly activating the switch may or may not eventually get the window to close.
Am I looking at a switch problem, a regulator (motor) problem, or a relay problem? And where are the relays, anyway?
Thanks in advance.

Do you know any reason why the computer will not give signal to main relay?
The computer uses its logic to turn ON a "driver" transistor that makes the ground connection. This transistor can be shot, or the logic has failed. some ECM's can be opened to replace discrete transistor, I do not know a bout ths one. Anyway, your "bypass" relay is a good option

..switch issue, most probably main driver switch..or one conductor to the door . check diagram
Pull passenger witch, disconnect wire bundle, check for solid ground contact at 3 and 6 of wire bundle. If one fails, problem is with driver switch.
