The ATAC's unit is situated behind the heating controls on the centre panel...I wanted to disable the bonging when you open the door with the key still in the ignition but it's quite far back in there so I had to leave it....It controls a number of things like the courtesy lights delay and I think the central locking, but I'm not certain....I don't know whether there is a separate fuse?

i will tell you what I would think is your problem with your door locking ,it,s your icm relay block I have done a few over the years,don,t let kia con you into 100 of pounds to fix,I will give you the part number it,s icm relay block 911103e880 that,s for the sorento up to around 2008 and around 30 pound ,they are held by two 10 mil nuts on the drivers above the fuse box take the change container out and you will see it up and to your right it,s a bit of a pig to get at ,I don,t bolt back I cable tie the new one around the other cable block because it's bolted against metal and condensation gets in them thanks

Sorry I,m late on reply it,s the pull down box on drivers side I think you should have one the last one I done was on a sorento 2007 you pull it open then lift it up and it will come out with a little force if you look through the hole where the cash container was you can put your hand with ten mil socket up from underneath looking through the hole where the cash box was you can see what you are doing I did unplug some of the other connectors that were in the way all three I have done water had got in the from condensation that's why I use ties and keep them from the metal that they are bolted to you don,t need to take the old one out you can get the plug out and plug it into the new one and fix with ties the plug can be a bit of a pig to get out hope this helps

Goin further when I operate the flipper on the door to open close the doors, I can hear a faint click somewhere up from the clutch brake area, is this by any chance the relay thats faulty?
