While I was taking my daughter to school both my low beams went out. I used hi beams until vehicles were coming at me and then no lights at all till they passed. I also noticed my backup camera stopped working that day. I've been told it could be a relay and not the bulbs. I called the dealership (not Kia) that I bought it from and was told they don't do electrical repairs. So I guess I need to find a Kia repair shop. Any idea what the problem might be?

The brakes on the left front wheel locks up, causing it to get really hot and smoking. We have recently bought new tires and had brake pads, rotors, caliper and brake line unit replaced. It happened again and the mechanic said they found a module that had to be reset. Brought it home, drove it about 70 miles and it locked up again.. It suddenly locks up and overheats before we can get off the street to a point that it melts brand new ceramic brake pads. The shop talked with the Kia shop and no one seems to know how to fix it. Any ideas, has anyone else had this problem?
