Go to this site for the 01 Service manual:
http://www.kia-forums.com/do-yoursel...e-manuals.html

Take out the back seat and remove cover to get to fuel sensor for testing.

Go to FUEL SYSTEM, click on it. Then click on FUEL DELIVERY SYSYTEM. Click on FUEL TANK. Then click on REPAIR PROCEDURES:
REMOVAL
1. Disconnect negative battery cable.
2. Remove rear seat.
3. Remove fuel pump cover, and then disconnect fuel pump connector.
4. Remove components in the order shown in above figure.
FUEL TANK PRESSURE SENSOR
1. Reconnect tank pressure sensor connector.
2. Vent fuel tank by removing fuel filler cap.
3. Turn ignition switch to ON position.
4. Using voltmeter, measure voltage at all three(3) fuel tnak pressure sensor terminals in the fuel tank sending unit connector.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
3(W)-2.0~3.0V (Signal return voltage/base reading)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


5. If signal voltage reads 5.0 volts, check the sensor ground wire.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1(BR)-0.0V (sensor ground)2(L)-5.0V (reference voltage)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


6. Disconnect hose from fuel tnak at evaporative emissions canister.
7. Connect hand-held vacuumpump to hose.
8. Connect voltmeter between fuel tank round and the W wire in the fuel tank sending unit connector.
9. With ignition switch in the ON position, verify than voltage goes down when vacuum is applied to when pressure is applied.
10. Disconnect fuel tank pressure sensor connector, then remove the retainer nut, and remove fuel tnak pressure sensor from the tank.
11. Remove screw attaching fuel tnak pressure sensor ground wire to the fuel tnak sending unit mounting plate.
12. Measure fuel tnak pressure sensor resistance.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1(BR)-3(W) : 5.0~6.0 kΩ1(BR)-2(L) : 2.5~3.0kΩ2(L)-3(W) : 5.0~6.0kΩ

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


13. If not within specification, replace the fuel tank pressure sensor.


Hope this helps

The ground wire is on the back side of the block facing the firewall, in the middle underneath the intake manifold.

Is the fuel pump replaceable through access panel in back seat? or does the tank need to be dropped? My fuel pressure went to zip. I had delayed starting and intermittent power loss. Now no start. I've noticed the pump sounds slower and quieter during pressure build up during relay activation.
