It's also possible that the alternator went out if all the power was lost (you can still listen to the radio though). This happened to me before. The alternator isn't too hard to change yourself. Hope this helps.

It's possible the "anti-thielf" system has been failing and went out while you was driving. If the ignition key has a chip in the shaft of the key your car has anti-thieft. It's possible the system doesn't reconisethe igntion key and shut the system down. Try using another igntion key if it came with 2 keys. If the engine started you'll need to get the other igntion key replace.

Re: 2005 Kia Rio Wagon. Driving down the highway, car just decided to stop working. Will not start again. Have replaced the starter with a brand new starter still not working. All you can hear is


Well, to begin with, the LAST thing I would replace if a vehicle died going down the highway is the starter. What caused the engine to die? It certainly was not the starter!
If the starter will not crank the engine over, you probably have a dead battery. If your battery went dead while driving the vehicle down the road, you most likely have a bad alternator. However, it is really hard to say without actually being able to see the car.

You have a bad idle air / idle sensor. Your car believes that you are in idle at all times so when you come to a stop the engine floods. When the fuel evaporates you can drive again. Drove me crazy when it happened to me.

Check wires to make sure they are secure on the starter, alternator and battery. Also check fusible links. Fusible links are fuses within the wire. These are usually found near the starter. It could be that the wires are brittle or broken and not making a good contact. Check to see how they look. You may want to use a voltmeter.
