Good to hear your problem is solved. Seems that wiring is a big Achilles heel of the Sportage. And being that most everything is switched to ground, the ground circuit is often the blame. On my Sporty, the horn works on a rare occasion and sounds like a 90-year old goat bleating when it does, 3 of 4 power windows move at the speed of a tortoise and my windshield wipers only have one speed (slow - the same on all settings). And I'm pretty sure that all of those issues result from poor grounds. So if you have any electrical problem, the first step is likely to check the ground wires. Again, it's good to hear you found the bug! <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/cheers.gif" alt="" />
