Electrical trouble


Asked by Jan 06, 2016 at 07:14 PM about the 2005 Kia Sportage LX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2005 KIA Sportage,Last time i used the power windows, the park lights, power windows, power locks, dash lights, interior lights, clock, radio, all are dead. I checked all fuses inside drivers compartment and all fuses and relays under the hood, They are all good. The clock and radio come on sometimes, but when i turn on the park lights, or touch power lock or power windows, I hear a clicking sound near the fuse panel inside the compartment and they go dead also. Vehicle runs normal.Anyone have any ideas?
Thanks in advance

giggle elect box connections relays/links under hood all wires to battery accessories and at battery


Thanks for your reply. already shook and pulled all wires under dash and around battery. Took fuse panel out, removed all fuses in side and under hood, putting all back together tomorrow, with fingers crossed for a loose connection, its -10c outside, cant spend a lot of time troubleshooting. Hoping it may have been the main power fuse that was loose.


Found the trouble, bad wire between under hood fuse panel to under dash fuse panel,The 60 amp power wire, 60 amp fuse is OK, fuse holder is OK, With test light it seemed like wire was OK, but when the wire was attached to fuse panel, it lost power, so I ran a wire from the battery, spliced it to suspected wire, and everything worked normal, Its just a temp fix, when the weather warms up, I will try to find the bad wire.
