    Hey i am back i was wondering if anyone knew how to get the factory radio out and put in a new one possibly some pictures or diagrams. Also will this affect anything by changing the radio .
    Thanks in advance

    First item is to pull the faceplace out.It is clipped in at several points. Gently pry out from the edges, a little at a time, may using a dull table knife, or your fingernails.
    I did it a few times for the heater controls...I did not touch the radio.

    Is it a simple procedure to change the speed sensor? The person I just bought my Sportage from recently busted it by going over a huge bump.

    Thank you.

    Hello
    I have a 2002 Kia Sportage that a new battery will go dead in 24 hours. If I remove the FUEL PUMP RELAY or take the INJ FUSE out, then the battery will stay up to normal power. Any ideas? Thanks, Joe
