Quite commonly on this car the camshaft or crankshaft sensor are to blame, it is very difficult to say without a diagnostic code. If you can get the car to a independant garage or a mobile mechanic to get the fault code from the computer I can tell you exactly what the issue is. I would try this route first as it will only cost you about £50, once I know what the fault is I can tell you how to fix it also.

Another alternative is the cars immobiliser, to remedy this disconnect the car battery overnight if possible or at least for a few hours, then reconnect in this order red first then black. see if that resets the ompuetr this often does the job.

Hope this helps

SOURCE: my piece of junk kia will not start!!

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.

SOURCE: My '05 Kia Sorento is overheating during this this hot days!!!!

Check fluid levels, make sure radiator cap is on tight, checks hoses to assure all good. And keep in mind, although new thermostat, it could still be faulty. (not likely, but a thought).

SOURCE: My Kia Sorento will start

When the fuel pump was replaced it is important that you install a new fuel filter as it is necessary to have a clean filtered fuel into the pump. Also check the injectors and the spark plugs.
If the spark intensity is low check the HT COILS and the ignition system triggers to the HT coils.
If spark is good then the fuel pressure and calibration must solve the issue.
Take help for consensus.
Thank you for using fixya.

I have a 2003 kia sorento drove home one night everything fine next day start SUV brake and battery light comes on and daytime driving lights don't work what is the problem

These foreign cars usually light up like this when the alternator is bad. Check battery voltage with vehicle off. Start vehicle and check again. It has to be at least 1-1.5 Volts higher than when off. If not, charging error and usually the alternator.

Good luck,

Kia shuts off while driving

If recharging the battery makes it start/go again then its a fault in the charging/battery circuit.
Solution 1. Check alternator. It should read over 14 volts across the battery terminals with engine at tick over. If its below that its the alternator thats faulty
Solution 2. Try a different battery known to be good. any size will do for a couple of days. Batteries sometimes only last 2-3 years. yoyrs could have been on since 2006!!!!!!
