Question about 2000 Kia Sportage

1 Answer

Why will my 2000 Kia Sportage not fire?

Key in ignition. Dashlights and door dinging start. Turn key and it doesn't even turn over. The Kia will start when it wants to like about twice a month.

SOURCE: Key wont turn

no it sounds like the ignition clinder is broken or worn down inside either that or maybe the key itself. get a new key made (local hardware store) and try that one if that doesnt work im afraid that you may need a new key and tumbler

Key won't turn in 2000 kia sportage


I assume that you are writing about an ignition lock. Firstly check that you've got the right key. Secondly try turning the steering wheel slightly as you turn the key. If that doesn't work it's likely that the lock is shot. Get it checked by a Kia dealer.

My 98 kia sportage wont start


It sounds like the key sensor in the drivers door is malfunctioning, the drivers door is the only door that can enable/disable the alarm, if you try to unlock any of the others it will trigger the alarm.

Sometimes with my Kia I have to (without opening the door), cycle lock and unlock several times before the alarm is disarmed.

Have you tried this is succession, with all the doors locked:-

put the key in the drivers door, turn to lock and then to unlock, the alarm should disarm.

Also, if any of the door locks are jammed, the alarm will still activate when you try to unlock the drivers door.

If that fails and the alarm still activates, then it's a problem with the key sensor in the door.

2001 s10 will jump start. After it sits, I try to start it, it won't start, but the ignition keeps dinging after I turn it off and take the key out. I can jump start it and the dinging stops.


its sounds like a bad ignition switch-try to jiggle it and see if its stop after you have turned key off- also those dinging sounds are to warn you that you have left something on -usually headlights or maybe even your dome lights which would account for your battery dying

well hate to be the bearer of bad news but that is exactly what needs to be done. try turning the key and forcefully moving steering wheel from side to side. if needed get someone to help you moving the wheel but you must be turninf the key at the same time in order to unlock. this is common and happens when you turn the wheel while key is in the off posoition or out of ignition, perhaps grabbing on steering wheel while entering or exiting vehicle. good luck.

Starts fine but when switched off will not start for 10 mins or so, cranks over but does not fire[94 4.0 jeep cherokee]


You are probably unaware that your jeep has an aftermarket keyless entry system....Try this....roll down the drivers window....push the power door lock......get out/close the door...and attempt to open the door as u normally would.......it should be locked...... use your key to unlock the door....get in.....insert the key into the ignition and turn it to on...((((DON"T TRY 2 START IT UN TILL THE WARNING BELL STOPS DINGING & ALL THE DASH WARNING LIGHTS ARE OUT)))...........usually 5 dinging sounds.......at any rate just wait untill the sounds stops and fire up your jeep.....i hope this works for ya.....good luck
