Did ya wash it right before this happened? If so the Computer is wet and/or the connector(s) to the computer are wet or moist.. Even if ya didnt wash it.. Locate the puter and investigate it.. it only takes a drop of moisture to ruin the continuity of the computer. As per Code 1631 indicates with us. To an average person with an OBD2 Scanner.. 1631 would mean the puter is fried.. but wha Ive seen is just wet/moist connections at the ECM (computer itself).. Hope this helps.. thank you

I have a 1998 kia sportage wil crank over and will not start. no spark.


Sounds like the coil or possibly the electronic ignition, replace coil as this is the cheaper option. Check to see if your Kia then starts if it does allow the engine to run until at operational tempreture then shut off the engine allow 5 mins then try to restart if your Kia if it starts again without straining or being boosted via jumper cables problem solved. If by any chance you do replace the coil & your Kia still will not start the electronic ignition is the next step & that can be done yourself as long as you have the required tools & knowledge, if not a trained professional will be able to replace the electronic ignition but this will be very costly if it is the electronic ignition.

I hope this helps.

2003 kia sorento wil turn over but won,t start. after a while it will start up. l can drive down the road and it will cut off. after awhile it will start back up l checked the code and wasn,t getting any...


This is almost for sure the fuel relay. I do not know where it is on your car but I would look for it to be by one of the back wheels where road junk can get to it and corrode it. Once found not very expensive and very easy to replace.

Will it hurt the 03 kia spectra to disconnect pos from the batt while running. I'm asking because i did and it still ran and while using a volt meter to see what my batt getting, my wife turns o


Yes it can hurt the electrical system if you disconnect the battery while the engine is running.
It can toast the diodes in the alternator and cook the computer along with other problems.
You'll need to check the fuses and the engine computer.
