Question about 2011 Kia Forte EX

1 Answer

2011 Kia Forte Koup's ignition is sticky and getting worse

So we have a 2011 Kia Forte Koup ex, brand new when my husband got it, and we have an issue where when you turn the key forward to start it, it gets stuck in that position, with the car turning over, but running, and not of the accessories [like the clock and radio] turning on. It's easily fixed by turning it back into the correct position once it has been started, but it's still annoying and it's getting worse. When my husband bought the car, it would stick sometimes during the summer, so he though it was the heat, now, a year and a half later, it sticks every time it is turned on. What is causing this?

Phone the KIA dealership in the area where you live, Ask to talk to some one in the service department, To see what they think would cause it to do that, Most dealerships are verry helpfull, At least where i live in (Canada)

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

If the vehicle is brand new, you should take it back to the dealer and have it repaired under warranty.

SOURCE: what is p200a my check engine light is on 2011


Hi there,

I think the code you are referring to is P0200.

This code means your vehicle computer (PCM) has identified an issue within the Fuel Injector circuit.

Possible causes for P0200 code are:

  • Open or shorted injector
  • Injector low internal resistance (basically an injector that works, but is out of specs)
  • Grounded driver circuit
  • Open driver circuit
  • Driver circuit shorted to voltage
  • Wiring harness intermittently shorting against underhood components


Cheers,

It's a fault code connected with the intake manifold.
