The 3rd generation Kia Sportage was produced in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016. During this time, the model has been restyled once. In our material you will find a description of the fuse boxes and relays of the Kia Sportage 3 with boxes diagrams and locations from the location. Let’s highlight the fuse responsible for the cigarette lighter. The Sportage 3 is available in three trim levels: S, SE and SX with both petrol and diesel engines. The number of elements in the fuse boxes and relays depends on this.
Check the assignment with your diagrams on the back of the protective cover.

Photo for example
On many Sportage 3 cars, a main power fuse is located on the positive terminal of the battery, made in the form of a high-power fuse.

Hi there I was looking for the power window relay on my 2015 kia sportage and i did not see any relays on the back of the fuse box in the driver side compartment. Do you have any idea where else it could be?
Excellent detail but which fuse controls headlights and sidelights?
Struggling with this but surely has to be simple!
Don’t want to have to take to dealer what is simple. I’ve changed the lights themselves but…
Hi I have the same problem did you find which fuse controls the headlights? Thanks
hi; i have a problem with a car kia sportage 2014, the ignition is still on acc or the light of the start button is orange . we can’t locked the dors and it’s like the IG1 is still on
Need help or guidance. I was involved in a car accident. When I got sideswiped on my left drivers side somehow I knocked out my seat warmers, my mirrors won’t fold in and I no longer have working backup sensors.
Are there any fuses I need to check and where do I find them- in the console or under the hood?
