Q: Looking for inertia switch on a 2005 Kia Sorento

asked by on December 19, 2017

Looking for the inertia switch on My car
My car's transmission is unknown to me.

The inertia fuel pump cut-off switch should be located under the hood on or near the passenger side inner fender. If you think the switch might have tripped, push down in the center of the rubber that waterproofs the switch. If the vehicle is not starting, and re-setting the switch does not help, if you want the required diagnostic steps performed by a certified Mechanic, dispatched by YourMechanic right to your location, please request a no start diagnostic and the responding certified mechanic will get your car started and running properly. If you have further questions or concerns, do not hesitate to re-contact YourMechanic as we are always here to help you.
