2004 Kia Rio Won't Start Clicking Noise Battery is GOOD
We were driving and stopped to make a turn the car died... then we tried to start it and it tried to turn over but didnt start.... then it just made a clicking noise when we tried to start it... So we thought it was the battery so we got a new one and still same thing loud CLICK noise when we turn it over... It doesnt make a draging sound when we try to start it just a loud click and then nothing... Lights are bright and all and we even had the new battery tested and it is GOOD!

The symptoms you describe sound familiar. Something is killing your new battery and the problem may indicate a need for consulting a competent Kia dealer. The erratic instrumentation is due to low voltage on the bus that feeds it. That, along with the clicking noise, are signs of a dying battery. The dealer may have a factory service bulletin (FSB) that fixes this.
Sounds like a bad battery or alternator, or it could have thrown the drive belt off. Check too see that the belt is still on and then charge the battery and see if it starts. If it starts, run for a while and dies again with no crank, it is most likely an alternator.
SOUNDS LIKE BATTERY TIME FRAME FOR BATTERY IS 2 TO 7 YEARS DEPENDING ON QUALTY AND MAINTIANCE DONE 5 YEARS IS GOOD TIME TEMP MEANS ALOT TO BATTERYS ALSO TRY JUMPING AND IT WILL TELL YOU IF ITS STARTER OR BATTERY IF IT TURNS OVER GOOD LET JUMPER CABLE STAY ON FOR 10 MINUTES BEFORE STARTING AND BE SURE BGOOD CONNECTION IS THERE GOOD LUCK
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.
