2006 Kia Sorento ProblemsUpgraded Control Module Will Stop Erroneous Airbag Light
The airbag warning light may illuminate erroneously. This can be caused by an internal defect in the control module. Replacement of the airbag control module with a revised part may be necessary to correct this concern.
Reprogramming the transmission control module with the latest Kia transmission software may fix abnormalities in the automatic transmission and erroneous transmission-related Check Engine Light illumination. Software updates are commonly most effective on newer vehicles. Higher mileage vehicles may exhibit a similar symptom caused by a component failure. However, whenever major transmission repairs are performed the transmission software should be checked and updated as necessary.
In order to correct a problem that results in difficulty starting, engine vibration, or a rattling sound from the engine compartment, Kia released an updated crankshaft pulley bolt.
