Kia Spectra (Sephia) – second-generation sedan and lift-back produced by the South Korean company, in 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003 and 2004, with 1.5, 1.6 and 1.8 liters engines. During this time, the model of the Spectra managed to be restyled / facelifted.
In this article you will find information on where the fuses and relays are located with their diagrams and purpose, especially the fuses responsible for the windows, fuel pump and cigarette lighter.
Kia Spectra / Sephia has 2 main fuse boxes with fuses and relays, and 1 additional block.
When studying the diagrams of fuses, remember that depending on the year of manufacture, equipment and modification of the car, the location and purpose of the fuse elements may differ, we recommend additionally checking the destination with the printed circuit on the protective plastic cover of the Fuse box.
Fuse box and relay in the passenger compartment
There are two mounting blocks (fuse block and relay block separately) in the passenger compartment.
The fuse box in the passenger compartment is located on the driver’s side, at the bottom of the footwell, directly on the side pillar, covered by a protective cover.
To access it:
- Remove the protective cover by pushing down on its latch and set it aside.
