How do you reset the cam sensor on a 2000 Kia Sportage?

Hi, Assuming your cam sensor is working correctly, the best way

to clear all faults in the engine computer is to: remove the

positive battery cable from the battery... then touch and hold the

battery cable end on any good ground (such as the intake manifold)

for at least 30 seconds. a minute or two is better. when you

reconmnect the battery cable to the battery, start the engine and

your check engine light will be off. if the light comes back on

later and you confirm the cam sensor code, you probably have a bad

sensor. Good luck Chet
