Kia Sportage: Fuses - Maintenance - Kia Sportage SL Owners ManualKia Sportage: Fuses

Third generation SL (20102016) / Kia Sportage SL Owners Manual / Maintenance / Fuses

A vehicles electrical system is protected from electrical overload damage by fuses.

This vehicle has 3 fuse panels, one located in the drivers side panel bolster, the other in the engine compartment near the battery.

If any of your vehicles lights, accessories, or controls do not work, check the appropriate circuit fuse. If a fuse has blown, the element inside the fuse will melt.

If the electrical system does not work, first check the drivers side fuse panel.

Before replacing a blown fuse, disconnect the negative battery cable. Always replace a blown fuse with one of the same rating.

If the replacement fuse blows, this indicates an electrical problem. Avoid using the system involved and immediately consult an authorized Kia dealer.

Three kinds of fuses are used: blade type for lower amperage rating, cartridge type, and multi fuse for higher amperage ratings.
