Try the ignition switch,

For the Crank sensor there is a small metal disc that mounts behind the sensor if that is cracked or dammaged or installed backwards you will get same results as if it wasn't Make sure the timing marks line up on your timing belt. www.kiatechinfo.com

SOURCE: 2004 Kia Optima no start after timing belt, crank, cam sensor replacement

did you use aftermarket crank sensor? if so that might be your problem. dealer has several different ones, by providing vin number, but there is only one after market for all optimas 01-05. try to connect thick pink wire and thick orange wire together on the ignition failure sensor. you might have the same problem as me. good luck.

SOURCE: 2002 Kia Sportage will not start.

p0560 is system voltage problem. open or short between the battery positive and the ecm.CHECK ALL FUSES. dosnt matter what they are labeled under dash and under hood replace any that are bad and retry to start. no start then check voltage to ecm grounds to. i dont have a wireing diagram to give you but for a small fee or free the dealer can make you a copy.make sure all the wires that go to battery terminals are not corroded and are making good contact [verified with volt meter]. if after all checks ok then replace ecm. as a side note i havent had to change one ever.

04 Kia optima... I replaced broken timing belt and the engine turns over but doesn't start


Did you make sure the belt was installed with the timing marks lined up properly? If you forgot to look at the timing marks it will not start and you may damage the engine trying to start it.

2005 kia optima...was driving at 70 mph when i heard a whirring noise of sorts then died. tried starting it up again and all i hear is one clicking noise. smells strong of coolant, but not leaking any...


Have you changed the timing belt? It is supposed to be replaced every 65,000 miles. That would be the first thing to check. IT will cost about 500 USD to have a dealer change it if there is no damage from it breaking. When they break, the pistons can hit the valves and cause lots of damage.

Timing belt slipped 2005 Kia Optima


I would change the belt and do a compression check before starting the engine. That will show any distorted valves.

2005 Kia Optima -replaced timing belt component kit and crank shaft cencors and there compression. No spark getting to the spark plugs now. Car will not start.


you need to correct the timing belt, remove the appropriate parts and time the engine back to TDC. then check for slack on the 'power' side of the belt, adjust the tension on that side.

***BE SURE THAT THERE IS NO SLACK ON THE POWER SIDE OF THE TIMING BELT***

Timing belt broke on 2005 Kia Optiima. Is the engine wrecked? worth it to replace engine?


that is an interference engine, so if it was running when it broke, chances are very good that the valves are bent, at least-in worst case situations, pistons can be damaged too, but I would have the head removed and have the valves redone-while off, the top of the engine can be checked out. Timing bests are supposed to be replaced every 60,000 miles.
