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

This vehicle has two fuse panels, one located in the drivers side kick panel, 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 be melted.

Always replace a blown fuse with one of the same rating.

If the same fuse blows again, avoid using the system involved and immediately consult an authorized Kia dealer.

Two kinds of fuses are used: standard for lower amperage rating and main for higher amperage ratings.
