  • Kia Rio 2014 headlights faulty , only turns on when ignition is off.

  • I replace my alternator brush, after that all my lights control by the parking lights switch are off

    • It’s possible that during the process of replacing the alternator brush, something went wrong with the electrical system that controls the parking lights. Here are a few things you can check:

      Make sure all the connections related to the alternator and parking lights are properly connected and secure.

      Check the fuses related to the parking lights to see if any have blown. Replace any that are damaged.

      Look for any loose or damaged wiring in the area around the alternator or parking lights. If you see anything that looks suspect, repair or replace it as needed.

      If you’re still having issues, it may be best to take the vehicle to a mechanic or auto electrician who can diagnose the problem more accurately.
