Electrical problem 2004 KIA Amanti

Battery was run down and will not seem to take a charge. Can jump start and it runs fine. On the digital screen in the middle of the dash (clock, radio, mileage, ect.) where the radio station used to show, it now reads: NO CON.

Warranty is up (70,000 miles) and I hope it is just a bad battery. Is there any way to tell? Battery warning light works but does not come on when running.

Nearest KIA dealer is two hours away. I would appreciate any advice and thank you in advance.

Do you have an aftermarket radioin your car? your radio and the car display unit have to be reprogrammed if you changed your battery.

My Charging Warning System and Immobilizer indicator warning light is both on after my 2004 Kia Amanti is running and put in drive.


Was the battery unhooked recently, Alternator or battery could be faulty, you can check them with a digital meter. The Immobilizer light may go away after you adress the battry/charging fault.
link to your manual below.

I changed my thermostat but that radiator symbol still comes on for my 2004 kia Amanti. When you replace the antifreeze do have to prime it someway brcause it doesn't seem to flow like it should.


I've dealt with this vapor-lock issue in multiple ways. One was to put an aspirin in the thermostat to hold it open. When disolved it would work properly. But want it open for a bit so that coolant can flow.
The other was to squeeze the radiator hoses to push coolant and work air into radiator so it could come to top of radiator. Another is to simply run it till warms up, shut it down and ad coolant to the reservoir.

2004 kia amanti my battery light is on and a car with key symbol is on new battery sometimes car starts sometimes does not and i have to charge it to get it going


I don't have much experience with Kia but typically a key light is an immobilizer problem. If the key light is intermittant and coincides with the non start, that is probably it.

Head lights and rear lights out


only 2 reasons for battery dying. 1. bad battery. 2. bad alternator. batteries should never die unless your leaving things on such as light etc. even then after a jumpstart the alternator should charge it back up after a little while of running. Have your battery tested if it is good then it will most likely be ur alternator. Hope I could be of some help.

The alternator and battery are regulary going out. Four alternators and 2 batteries in less than 24 months. One mechanic said it had a unusual high amp draw on it while running but the Kia dealer could not...


That's a lot of alternators and batteries. Are the alternators you replace it with lifetime warranted? Also, what's the cca of the battery and the warranty of the batteries replaced in it?

My 2005 Amanti was driving fine today. Tonight, my husband put gas in it and now it won't start. The lights are flickering on and off, the cd changer lights are blinking and the display on the screen?...


I do not see what the fuel had to do with this, unless the car was cranked for so long that the battery went down. sometimes you pump diesel and car will run about 1/2 block....

Your description sounds like an electrical based issue. Look for grounds, good connections at the battery....get the battery tested, then go on from there. Sometimes batteries fail quickly, but usually will start with a jump....your car sounds like it is not getting electrical power... (Electrically challenged...)

My cable battery bracket has just broken(sheared in 2 pieces)--how can I fix this so my car can start?


Put up the hood and hold the cable closed on the terminal with a pair of pliers. once the car starts it should run fine without the pliers as long as the charging system is working correctly. Then drive to a parts store and replace the cable.

''No Con'' appears on radio screen on 2004 Kia Amanti


the radio could be locked up you can pull the audio fuse in the dash out for a min or 2 then plug back in. that should fix it. if not you need a new radio. Kia doesn't make them anymore so you either need to find a junkyard one or go to the dealer to have them ship it out and get repaired.

Charging a dead battery


you could leave it in the car and unhook the terminals. or you could just jump start it from another car and let it run for about 15-20 mins
