Lights are dimming means starter taking power would look at starter again

SOURCE: 01 kia optima stalled and wont start...starter just clicks

It seems the starter is playing up.First check if your battery is charged fully or try to jump start and see what happens.If the engine start then it's either you need a new battery or else you need a replacement alternator.Test using a voltmeter if the actual altenator is working.Finally the last option is the starter motor that needs changing or fixing...Hope this helps.

SOURCE: replacing the starter on my 2005 Kia Rio

1st disconnect your battery (Tools that I needed. 14mm socket for mounting bolts, 13 mm socket and a drop light. You need to jack up the front end pretty high both sides and put jack stands under each side. (extra precaution I put wood under the wheels because I don't like getting crushed. Slide under your car (bring a drop light) Look up and see your oil filter. Now look left and you will see the starter motor (oh yeah there is a pain in the as s bracket in the way) remove that bracket (14mm should be right) and then remove the bottom bolt of the starter (you may need a long socket extension here 8"?) The next set of bolts you have to get from up above that come from the other side. Get your light in there the one on the left side is easiest so get that last. The one on the right side will have a wiring harness running really close to it. Force your 14mm socket onto it with a 4 in extension. Back the bolt off till it spins a free but leave it in the hole. Remove the second one until you hear the unit fall. When putting the two bolts from the other side in, don't reef on them to get them super tight. Save your core so you can get some money back. Good repair manuel will cost 20 bucks, Haynes auto repair at your local auto parts store. good luck

Lights work, radio works battery is new and fully charged but when I try to start it...nothing. No starter clicking..nothing


A mechanic would check for voltage at the starter. You should have battery voltage on the large cable, and power on the small wire when you turn the key switch to start.
There is a clutch switch or neutral safety switch in the circuit between the starter and the key switch that could have failed.

Kia rio wont start all of the sudden not the battery


If you can hear a clicking sound when turn the key and your battery is charged, your problem could be starter or ignition key switch.

Check aftermark or antitheft system there.

My 2002 kia rio wont start just makes loud clicking sound. its not the starter, or battery or timing belt thats all ok.


May still be the starter or solenoid. Battery may not have the power to turn the starter or the starter may be drawing too much.
Turn the lights on and then try starting the car. Let us know if the lights dim or not, while trying to start.
A reputable service garage can check the load and draw as well as condition of the battery in a short time and little cost. If you take it to get checked, be specific about what you want checked and ask for an estimate before deciding as well as a guarantee. SOme places will try changing components untill they get the faulty one and will charge for each, even though they were not the problem.

I just drove my kia rio to work, got out, went inside for 10 minutes, came back out, turned key to start car and all the bells and whistles come on like it normally does when I start my car but then it...


SOUND LIKE BAD STARTER SOLENOID.IF YOU HEAR LIKE CLICKING NOISE.CHECK BATTERY CABLE FOR TIGHTNESS AND CLEAN FREE FROM CORROSSION.CHECK BATTERY VOLTAGE SHOULD BE 12.5 VOLTS.IF NOT BATTERY HAS WEAK CELL IN IT.IF YOU HAVE TO REPLACE BATTERY.TURN OFF RADIO BEFORE DISCONNECTING NEGATIVE BATTERY CABLE SO YOU WONT LOCK OUT RADIO CODE.

2004 Kia Rio Won't Start Clicking Noise Battery is GOOD


My 2004 Kia Rio just started losing compression and died on me. I tried starting it and it only clicks. I checked the battery cables and they are not corroded and very tight. Could it be the battery or the alternator not charging the battery? there is no water in the oil and it's not the water pump.

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
