Question type: Maintenance & Repair

i have the same question. did you find your answer


minh I found out it was the amp fuses connected to the battery I had colors with a amplifier and sub running of the battery the only go thing is that the battery fuses blow before making anything worse

Thanks for your respond. My question is actually regarding the negative terminal cable with sensor. Did you find out whether it's ok to replace it with a regular cable without a sensor


I just replace the fuse I needed a 180amp fuse it's not a common kia dealer part I had to go to a site called they also have a 150amp fuse


no I don't know I friend told me to always go the cheapest route first

Ok thank you
