Location of starter on 2001 kia rio

My daughter has a kia rio and it will not start. When the key is turned to start,nothing happens, not even a clicking sound. Occassionally, the car will turn over and start but the fault returns after one or two starts. I cannot locate where the starter is in order to have it tested. Can someone help?

How do I start my 2004 kia rio, I changed the engine?


Check connections at starter as well for any grounds you may have disconnected during engine replacement. If vehicle started prior to engine replacement, suspect something loose or disconnected

Jus changed thermostat and radiator on my 04 kia rio now wont start...?


Did you bleed all the air out of the cooling system after you put all the coolant in?
Some cars may not start, because the computer thinks there's no coolant in the engine.
Hope this helps.

2006 Kia Rio will not turn over


the timing belt will not have anything to do with the motor turning over trying to start. First make sure u do have a very strong battery. Could be a bad connection or a broken wire to starter also.

Lights work, radio works battery is new and fully charged but when I try to start it...nothing. No starter clicking..nothing


A mechanic would check for voltage at the starter. You should have battery voltage on the large cable, and power on the small wire when you turn the key switch to start.
There is a clutch switch or neutral safety switch in the circuit between the starter and the key switch that could have failed.

Kia rio wont start


If it's an automatic gearbox vehicle, then check the operation of the gear selector switch within the selector mechanism. Most autobox vehicles will not start unless this switch sends a signal that the car is in either park or neutral.

Kia rio wont start all of the sudden not the battery


If you can hear a clicking sound when turn the key and your battery is charged, your problem could be starter or ignition key switch.

Check aftermark or antitheft system there.
