Question about 2007 Kia Sportage 2.0

2 Answers

2007 Kia Sportage Front Wheel Drive 4 cyl, Automatic. Rear window wiper suddenly failed. Power to motor checked and confirmed, but once it is mounted, it quits. New motor mounted, same problem. All fuses checked and relay in back panel working. Any help greatly appreciated. Also, back hatch seems to have locked itself and unable to open. Handle used to open back door worked fine, then 20 minutes later, can not open back door. Seems permanently locked and keys and keyless lock/unlock have no effect. Rear window latch works to open window.

My door did the same. It is the latch spring that is broken. Push the hatch latch to the locked 'return' position, lock the hatch with the keyless entry. unlock with the keyless entry and now the latch will open the hatch. because the spring will not return to the locked position you will need to return it ALL the time. NOTE:: THE REAR HATCH CAN BE CLOSED WITH THE LATCH IN THE OPEN POSITION NOW. THE DOOR IS NOT LATCHED/LOCKED CLOSED. It will cause the hatch open light on the dash when you hit bumps. AND PEOPLE/PETS/STUFF can fall out in transit!! If you are in the US file a report with the NHTSA-very dangerous!!
As for the wiper, clean the door frame contacts with sandpaper.

Not sure about your car, but on my Chrysler mini van the same problem happened. The problem was not the motor but the body control module. The unit had 2 relays, but the BCM actualy controls the unit. To replace the BCM was $450. I bypassed the problem by installing an on/off switch inside the car and activated the motor by by passing the BCM at the relay. That was 3 years ago, still works great. Your BCM may be the problem. Check the schematics of the relays and try doing the same.

If you don't have the manuals, your local library has online access to most service manuals that you would have to pay for. Many time you can get access to them through their website if you have a library card. If not, go the library and get full free access to all the major car service manuals for free!

SOURCE: My 2003 Kia Rio Cinco back hatch latch handle is

We had the same problem.
I took out the bolts outside, then crawled into the back area of the car, and took a screw driver, and slid it along the inner hatch catch, and found the safety latch and released the hatch. Then I took the inside off, and disconnected the handle device from the inside. It was rusted, and broken. I went to Kia, and bought a new one and reinstalled, after greasing the new one up. Took me a while, but they wanted 280.00 in labor, so it was well worth it.
Just be patient and go slow. A good metric socket set will be the best thing, with a regular and phillips screw driver.
Good luck

I have a 2006 kia sportage I have removed the rear wiper arm as not moving/.seized but the fuse is fine but fixing is not moving?please help


check for power at the wiper motor if you have power when the switch is activated if you have power there the motor needs to be replaced. if you have no power change the fuse and check again for power when the wiper switch it activated there is a relay that will cut out if the wiper is frozen to the window but unlikely that this will be your problem 9 times out of 10 the motor is gone.

I have a 2007 Kia sportage 4x4 v6. And my rear wiper isn't working. How do I test it before I buy a new motor?


If you look close to the wiper motor, you should find a 2 wire plug. Unplug it. Connect a 12 volt test light across the 2 wires.Turn on the rear wiper switch with the key on + if it lights up, you need a new motor. If it doesn't light up check your fuse and remove the one going to r.wiper. See it it's bad and replace as necessary. Garcuda
