2004 Kia Spectra starting problems

I have a 2004 kia spectra and sometimes it will not turn over, it has a new starter, the starter relays have been changed, the battery cables have been cleaned, when this happens all other electrics work, horn, radio, lights, etc. the problem seems to occur more when you turn off the car and then let sit for a shorter period of time, like say 2hrs, but then letting sit for about say 6-8 hrs it will the start up, can you point me in any direction, right now i'm lost, dylan

It may be the ignition switch itself. If it is a manual transmission it could be the clutch safty neutral switch located on the clutch pedal.

    I have this very same problem. 2004 Kia Spectra manual transmission. I have been told to buy a new battery, but I know it isn't the battery because it is always fully charged, yet acts like a dead battery. I can't get mechanics to try anything else other than the battery....ugh. It has me VERY frustrated!

I have a 07 kia spectra lx 2.0, 5 speed that when I press in on the clutch the starter engages what do i do?


It sounds to me like either the relay is stuck closed or your ignition switch has a problem. This is what I would do. After you start the car remove the starter relay. It is under the hood in the fuse and relay box. I have provided a diagram below. This will allow you to drive the car to your mechanic and not damage the starter.

Where is the alternator relay on 2004 Kia Spectra


According to my database, no generator relay, there are a couple of fuses for gen and fusible link for generator bat terminal. You could check battery amp draw with everything off. You may have to wait several minutes before testing.

My 2004 kia spectra will not start, even when i replaced a new starter


Did you replace the starter yourself or have a garage do it? It sounds like the starter gear is not aligned properly with the ring gear on the engine. Sometimes a 'shim' is needed to make them align. Compare the old starter with the new one to see they are exact or is if a shim fell off when removing the old.

2004 kia spectra no a/c


needs looking at because it could be switch that allows it to turn on if sufficient gas is present ,or a problem with the clima compùter ,but to do anything you will need the special machine to empty the system then check things out so take to an authorised AC garage ,because these systems are a potential accident and you could lose a finger with frostbite in a matter of less than 2 seconds .therefore i will not tell you how to look for a soloution because of the dangerous nature of playing with air con
