    Hello. I have a 2005 optima and was wanting to set it up so that the dim headlights stay on when I switch to brights but not the other way. I know it's done with just a wire placed between the relays with a diode in the middle but I don't know which prongs on the relays to tie the wire to. Already blew a fuse and don't care to blow more or the diode either for that matter. If you could guide me in the correct direction it would be much appreciated. Thanks

    I have a 2008 Kia Rio and like others on this post, the airbag light came on. I took it into the local Kia dealership and was told that it would cost $1,700 to fix. That's right $1,700, to replace the passenger seat where the sensor was located. Other's have similar situations??

    Hello Henfracar, I'm actually not sure is that oil filter will work or not. We don't have any Kia diesel engines here in the U.S. so unfortunately I'm not familiar with any of the specifics. Sorry I can't be more helpful.

    Just bought (4mths) a new Kia Sportage FWD Sandtrack colour with the diesel 2.0 Litre engine. Google indicates the Fram oil filter PH9688 for the 2.4Litre engine available in the US and Canada .. not here in Trinidad & Tobago. Do you know if this filter will work on my engine or is there a different oil filter for my engine?
    Thanks in advance ... now approaching my first oil change at 4500Km.
