Question about 2001 Kia Sephia
The car won't crank over at all. It has a 1yr old battery whick tested out ok at Advance
The problem could be a few things. First, you could have a bad starter. You could have a bad solenoid (device on the starter that "makes the contact" between the battery and the starter. Finally, I have seen bad cables between the battery and the starter. If you have access to a multimeter, you can test the resistance of the cable between the battery and the starter solenoid. It should read almost zero ohms. If the cable is heavily corroded, it could be much higher and would prevent the starter from operating. (this is very unlikely though) I would lean heavily toward the starter or the solenoid. Let me know if you want to know how to test the solenoid.
