Question about 2011 Kia Sorento

2011 kia sorento won't start in cold

On relatively cold mornings (slightly below freezing), my Sorento won't start - completed dead, does not turn over at all. By 10 am or so, once the temp has risen by a few degrees, it starts fine. The dealer tried changing the battery, but it didnt help. Their computer is not detecting any errors. It only happens in winter (last winter too). Any ideas?

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.

Testimonial: "Wouldn't their computer detect this if the sensor had failed and needed to be replaced?"

SOURCE: 2004 kia sorento no heat

I had a similar problem with AC & Heater fan,it works on and off, and sometimes if the road was rough it runs, So I had to remove the fan clean it with a blower from dust and debris, then I installed it back and it is running ever since for more than a year without having to replace it.

SOURCE: 2011 kia sorento car wont start

I have the same problem with my 2011 Kia Sorento. I have been googling it and I think it may be a bad brake sensor switch. Going to take it to the dealership on Monday. I had my battery tested (which I had replaced about 3 weeks ago) and it was fine. I found a video online that shows how to bypass the brake sensor . Push the start button once and then again and hold it the second time for about 15 seconds until it starts. Mine started right up

Show me how Alternator relay on 2011 Kia Sorento look like


Alternators don't have relays. An alternator is a generator of power to charge the battery. Relays are electronic switches using a small amount of power to open and close a larger switch with high amps.

2011 KIA Sorrento 2.4 were is the fuel pressure regulator located. put on adjustable fuel reg .need to disconnect stock one


fuel pressure regulators are normally located in the fuel manifold. They are either vacuum controlled or electronic controlled to maintain the right fuel pressure for engine requirements and to shut off the fuel pump when the ignition is turned off
If your manually adjusted unit will not do all that then you are asking for fault codes to appear and all sorts of problems to occur

2011 kia sorento car wont start


First off have the battery tested, just because it has enough juice to light the dash and the radio doesn't mean it has the 100 amps needed to run the engine starter motor. Autozone and others do battery testing for free.
