There are 2 plugs. Under the hood is the diagnostics port. For that you need a cord and unit that attaches to your computer. That is about $3000 (yes, three thousand). To get DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Codes) you need the ODB II port under and to the right of the steering wheel. You can pick up an ODB II scanner for about $100 for a low end one.

Also, go to and click on kia owners>service information. A website called KSIS will come up. You need to sign up but it is free. Lots of good info there.
