ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

5/24/2014 - OREGON CITY, OR
IN LATE MARCH, OUR 2009 KIA BORREGO EX WOULD NOT START, ALTHOUGH THE BATTERY WAS STRONG AND ALL ACCESSORIES WORKED. WE ALMOST ALWAYS PARK IN OUR GARAGE, AND THE CAR GETS USED A LOT ON A DAILY BASIS. MY WIFE HAD DRIVEN IT A COUPLE HOURS EARLIER. WE HAD IT TOWED TO THE DEALER WHERE THEY PULLED ERROR CODE P1656 - AUTHENTICATION FAILURE OFF THE ELECTRONIC MODULE. WE HAD TO HAVE ALL OF OUR KEYS REPROGRAMMED TO THE CAR. THE DEALERSHIP WAS NOT ABLE TO OFFER ANY EXPLANATION FOR THE ERROR. MY CONCERN IS THAT WE COULD HAVE BEEN STRANDED OFF IN THE BOONDOCKS OR SOME OTHER LOCATION. I AM ALSO CONCERNED THAT THE CAR COULD SHUT DOWN WHILE WE ARE DRIVING IT, CREATING A SERIOUS PROBLEM, ESPECIALLY AT HIGH SPEEDS.

EXTERIOR LIGHTING

3/25/2014 - TALLAHASSEE, FL
I HAVE A PROBLEM WITH ONE HEAD LIGHT GOING OUT, HAD THE BULB REPLACED TWICE. I WAS TOLD THE BULB WASN'T BLOWN, BUT HEADLIGHT WOULD NOT WORK. UNFORTUNATELY BOTH LOW BEAM LIGHTS STOP WORKING, EVEN AFTER REPLACING BULBS IN BOTH. I AM ONLY ABLE TO DRIVE AT NIGHT WITH HIGH BEAMS ON. THIS IS VERY FRUSTRATING, TOOK VEHICLE TO SHOP AWAITING DIAGNOSIS. I FOUND OUT THERE WAS A RECALL ON THE BACK STOP LAMP SWITCH, AFFECTING VEHICLE'S BRAKE LIGHTS. I'M WONDERING IF THIS HAS CAUSED PROBLEMS WITH FRONT HEAD LIGHTS???
