A fuse blowing is a dead short in the wiring or a device hooked to the wiring. KIA has horrible wiring schematics for the consumer. I have never found anything that was readable or usable for a wiring drawing. I would guess that KIA dealers have a source for better information on the wiring but I know that AllData's web site has the same basic information about the Sorento as what can be found on the web. What information I did find about the Module2 fuse is that the fuse is 10amps and powers the following items: Stop Lamp Switch, Alternator, Head Lamp Leving Device Module,Instrument Cluster, AV & Navigation Head Unit, and maybe more. Here is a link to the poor information that I found for free on line and I will say it is better then nothing: Kia Sorento XM 2011-2019 Service Manual

Maybe someone has better wiring schematics but they have not offered them here for download.

Did you recently install anything that can pop the fuse? New light bulbs incorrectly installed? Wired a new device that shares the same fuse? You could have a loose wire that's not grounded properly. Everytime a loose ground moves, it can pop the fuse.
