Question about 2001 Kia Rio

1 Answer

01' Rio won't start

This morning I went to start my rio and it did not crank. I have all the dash lights and radio (which cuts out when the key is turned, like you would expect). AAA checked the battery and said its fine. In Sep I had all the recalls done on the car, including the ECM update.

Since the dealer visit is when it has been slow to crank, but always fired up after a brief hesitation.

Possibilities I am looking at are starter, ignition, neutral safety swt. ANything else??

Ignition switch is good idea to start with as well as starter. if it cranked with no spark i will guess timing belt or crank sensor but you say it doesn't crank

let me know after you try some other fixes. Like ignition switch

2005 Kia rio cinco just stalled out coming home from work. Won't start at all now...just cranks. Had to tow home. No check engine light came on and no code on code reader. Ideas?


Check the fuel pump and all fuel related items, and check the coil pack. Check fuse's for same.
Remember, NO air, or NO fuel, or NO spark equals NO run.

2005 kia RIO will not start with jumper cables Initially, I truned the ignition key and only heard clicking sound. Lights, radio and horn all work. I then tried to start with Jumper cables and nothing...


The clicking sound is either coming from the starter relay or the starter solenoid switch.If the starter makes no click then it has to come off and get new brusjhes put in it or have the solenoid replaced.You can check it by jumping the post with the battery cable fastened to it to the smaller post with the small wire on it either with a small screwdriver or a piece of wire.If it goes then,then you need the relay,if it does nothing then you need to fix the starter.

2004 KIA RIO-ENGINE WILL NOT CRANK


I would guess starter fuse first, then starter. When you turn key, if you don't hear a click, you should focus your attention on the fuse first and then the starter. If you hear a click, then most likely (80%) its the starter solenoid. try to start the car in neutral to rule out the neutral safety switch...good luck
