Question about 2009 Kia Sportage LX

Open Question

My Sportage 2009 doesn't crank

For the last week my sportage has been not starting when I turn the key. The dash lights and all the assecories work but when I turn the key nothing. No clicking like its a dead battery just nothing. I've tried wiggling the key and even checked for loose batery connections. I think it might be a bad ignition switch. I keep turning the key to start it pull it out put it in try again and it finally starts. It also dosen't seem to happen in the afternoons or after I have driven the car only when it sit like overnight, Also there is nothing on drawing the battery down.

SOURCE: 1999 Kia Sportage: Issue with car starting

You may need a starter. My 99 Kia would get me places and would refuse to start. Someone hit the starter with a wrench and it started right up. I had to hit the starter to get my Kia to start until I replaced it.
Hope this helps.

Have you checked the fuel pump relay to see if it is sending power to the pump ? The computer grounds the relay when the computer "sees" oil pressure or engine RPM.

What would cause the 200 Kia Sportage not to start

Sounds like it could be fuel pump related turning the key so the dash lights up activates the fuel pump. After multipule times it starts could be not puting out enough or is faulty

Dash lights don't work

Sounds like its most likely just a blown fuse. It happened to me last week.
In the fuse box down on the driverside floor, pull the one that is on the top row closest too you (I think it shows for 'tail' on the diagram.
There should be a fuse puller in the fuse box as well as a replacement fuse down on the bottom of the box. If not, they're easy to find.
