Question about 2001 Kia Rio
I had to replace the brake master cylinder braket that the clutch and brake pedal connect onto due to breakage where the clutch cable gets fastened. I had to remove the hole steering colum by pulling it out from fire wall where it is connected. I disconnected wires from the steering colum. Trying to put steering colum back on wasn't as easy as taking it off. during installation I was turning wheel to get it into place and heard something snap(break) near the turn signal or steering lock mechanism. some plastic fell to the floor so I thought maybe it just won't turn of the turn signal after a turn......no big deal!!
When I connected everything back together and installed the battery and connected cables I thought "easy enough"
Well when I got back into the car I noticed the radio was on with the key in the ignition and then I put the key in and tried to start it and nothing happened at all.
None of the warning light came on and the car would not start.
Battery is full.
All fuses inside car are good.
all fuses(trasnparent color) next to battery look good too. the only ones I cannot check to see if they are bad are the grey colored box type fuses.

Fig. Fig. 1: Block the clutch pedal to prevent slave cylinder damage, should the pedal be depressed while the cylinder is removed from the transaxle
Fig. Fig. 2: To remove, rotate the slave cylinder about 1/4 turn counterclockwise while pushing toward the bell housing
Fig. Fig. 3: This plastic retaining strap must remain on the slave cylinder to ensure proper seating of the actuator rod against the release fork
Fig. Fig. 4: Rotate the clutch master cylinder about 1/8 turn clockwise and remove it from the instrument panel
HYDRAULIC SYSTEM BLEEDING The clutch hydraulic assembly has been filled with fluid and bled of air at the factory. Do not attempt to bleed the hydraulic system. While the unit does not require periodic checking, it must be serviced, when necessary, as a complete assembly. The system is full when the reservoir is half full.
Only DOT 3 brake fluid should be added to the system. If the fluid level drops, inspect the system, including the slave cylinder, for leakage. A slight wetting of the slave cylinder surface is normal. Fill the clutch master cylinder reservoir with brake fluid. Be careful not to spill brake fluid on the painted surface of the vehicle.
