    I recently purchased this vehicle and noticed that the left blinker blinks much faster than the right.
    I was told that it indicated a burnt out bulb somewhere in the vehicles exterior. I have assured that all lights are operational and it still does this. Any suggestions its like a blinker on speeeeeedddd. Thanks so much. New Kia Owner

      The way a blinker works is there is a circuit breaker. Breakers use a bi-metal strip, and as the metals heat, they expand at a different rate, and that causes the metal to bend and break the circuit. The heat comes from electrical current going through the circuit. Both sides should be on the same breaker, so if one side is blinking faster than the other, there may be a wiring problem that is causing more current draw on that side. - LEW CARite from CARite.com

      Should I try and replace the breaker anyways. Mine didn't come with an owners manual so I'm not sure where to find it or which one to change.

      I don't think it's the breaker. If it was the breaker, it should do the same thing for both sides. I think it's a wiring fault. -Lew CARite from CARite.com

      Not that hard= Simply open and prop hood, find lovation of inside part of headlight assembly, should be a 1 1/2 inch diameter protrusion (Lamp socket) Grip and slowly rotate counterclockwise and socket should come out exposing halogen bulb, bulb should come right out. Be sure to use a clean cloth while handling new bulb since you want no, I mean NO type of oil on bulb surface including body oil.

    Air bag warning light on permanantly

      The airbag system connectors as well as with many other connectors on kias have a habit of loosing connection every once in a while. if an airbag or impact sensor lost communication for a few seconds the airbag module would throw a code and cause the airbag light to come on and stay on until it was either fixed or cleared. most likely if they just cleared it and didn't bother fixing the problem then the code will come back. with this problem kia tells us to add dielectric grease to the connection having the problem and clear the code. i usually don't do it this way though. i take the connector that is having the problem apart and slightly bend the pins so they will make better contact and connect them back together and clear the code. this alway fixes a communication error in the airbag system unless the airbag or airbag related sensor is having the problem. if the airbag or sensor is having the problem it won't throw a communication error code.
