SOURCE: 2005 kia sorento didnt want to start made clinking

It's one of a few problem. One, your battery is not fully charged and isn't getting enough power to the starter, which makes the starter solenoid click because it isn't engaging the starter. Two the starter solenoid is starting to go bad. With either of these two you can have them both checked at your local Auto Parts store for free. More than likely it is the battery. A few more uncommon problems could be that the battery wires aren't attached firmly to the battery terminals or if your battery terminals have build up on them, they need to be cleaned and inspect the wires to make sure they don't have build up in them as well. Let me know if you have any further questions but like I said, it's probably just your battery. Thanks for using FixYa!

SOURCE: kia sorento diesel engine

could be you have a few bad glow plugs or a relay for them or a bad glow plug controler. the glow plugs are basicly a direct short that creates heat that warms the air in the cylinder to aid initial start.they can be checked wiyh an ohm meter. remove the wire and place one lead on the wire connecter of the plug the other to a good ground.you should have good connectivity. if not replace the plug

SOURCE: car turns over but wont start it is a kia sedona

the car will not start if the immo light is not lit. sometimes turning the key back and forth or removing it and locking then unlocking the car can sometimes remedy this.

if the immo light doesnt come on it means the ecu has left the immobilizer on. it is a commen fault on kia. if you lock and unlock the car or sometimes just take the key out the ignition then put it back in it sorts the problem. if you dont see the IMMO light dont attempt to start it because it wont fire

Kill switch on a kia 2004 sorento


There is no kill switch on this car. Do you mean the immobilizer? There are many different immo-systems and you need to be sure of which one before you order keys or try to fix.

Question: does the sign IMMO (yellow) light disappear after some seconds of ignition turned on? If not you may have to close your car with your keys, than open them with the keys, than start your engine.
Should work if you are experiencing the above problem... Just an idea.

Check the engine temperature sensor. There should be two of them, one that reports it inside of the car and one that reports it to the ECU. The one that reports it to the ECU has likely failed and needs to be replaced.

01 kia optima stalled and wont start...starter just clicks


It seems the starter is playing up.First check if your battery is charged fully or try to jump start and see what happens.If the engine start then it's either you need a new battery or else you need a replacement alternator.Test using a voltmeter if the actual altenator is working.Finally the last option is the starter motor that needs changing or fixing...Hope this helps.
