Have the same problem.
It looks like the computer of the vehicle lost the key-code. (chip in the key with a code)
Apparentely the computer of the vehicle will lose that code after being disconected from the batterie more then a month.

Car stalls, will usually restart after sitting a while

Seeing as how you had a check light on,
what codes were present & did you diagnose
& repair them ?

Sounds like a bad fuel pump on the stalling or

My Sorento's air compressor is shot and has to be replaced. Is this a common problem? Is it worth the money to fix? Just wondering if this is going to be the beginning of many more problems.

It is a common promblem with the Sorento, I did have the same promblem with my 03 sorento,and same with a co-worker who has a 05 sorento and you can also google it too, and it cost me well over 600us dollar to replace and fill/oil/llube and get it working. The compressor new was 289.00 and labor+, depressuring the ac refrigerant and all total was 637.88. If you plan on having this car over the summer and going without ac, that is fine. My compressor went broke for about a year until I had enough money to fix it, however since then, it went well for about 2 years, until I trade it off. I would say the sorento are cheap, which kia is.. It loose value, cheap to buy compare to other, but is a piece of junk and is very expensive to fix due to the expense of parts.
