Under the hood on the passenger side is a fuse panel that has 2 solenoids that push in. One is the gas solenoid that sends current to the fuel pump to start car. If this is bad your car will not start. Know this from experience because after a mechanic put in a $500 fuel pump and the car did the same thing 2 days later I purchased the new relay for $11. Runs fine!

My 02 kia sportage just quit while i was driveing it now will not start why


Most likely the fuel pump has quit. Check it by having someone turn the ignition key to the run position (just when dash lights light up) listen to the fuel tank from as close as possible. for the first 2 seconds you should hear a whining sound. If you don't... the pump is not working.

2000 kia sportage. replaced starter, battery, alt. Timing belt in great shape. I only get a click when trying to start. Any ideas?


get a socket to fit the crank pulley nut and try turning over the engine by hand if it turns you might have a bad cable to the starter or bad starter but if you cant turn it this means its locked up and seized no good.

1999 kia sportage turns over but wont start.chek engine light not coming on when ignition is switched on


This sounds like the ignition fuse, but you may have a dead battery too. check connections on the cables and see if it will start with a jump. You may have left the lights on or some other device and drained the battery. If it won't start with a jump then check all your fuses one at a time including the ones under the hood. The diagram on the covers should have one saying ignition but check ALL the fuses any how, A domino effect can sometimes happen taking more then one fuse out. Let me know how it turns out so far.
