Hi in order to remove the battery u need to unscrew the two nuts on the top and than pull it out .. sometime the nuts are jammed so just put some wd40 or little engine oil and after 3 mins or 5 just try to unsrew it again and it should come out fine..if not only option take it to any garage..if ur car not starting because battery stuffed.
just get ur mate car and pull battery out ..connect ur car leads and start the car..
once car started just un plug ur battery cable and just keep both cables seperate for it wont spark..
your car still remain started the only thing is that you wont be able to use horn or lights and few more electric items..
should work.. i did it before..

Starter does not engage. Only clicks when I turn the key.


The first thing to do is to check the condition of the battery cables/terminals. Make sure they are clean, free from corrosion and are tight. Also check the black earth lead where it connects to the block/bodywork. A poor earth can cause the symptoms you describe.

If that doesn't work, disconnect the positive battery cable (but bear in mind that you may lose the radio code.. do you know your radio code?) and then disconnect, clean the cables on the starter motor.

If that does not do anything - suspect the starter motor solenoid. It can be removed and cleaned (remove the starter motor first). You can 'bridge' the terminals on the solenoid with a screwdriver to try and start the car... but be careful.

How to change altornator on 2005 kia sportage


Alternator is pretty easy. First disconnect the battery. Then loosen the belt at the idler arm tensioner. Once the belt is loose then you can unbolt the alternator, pull it out, and replace it. You may have to remove a couple of brackets or air filter cover to reach it but not bad at all. First time plan on about 4 hours.

I'm trying to start my 2005 kia sportage and it's not starting. There is no clicking or anything just silence. What is it? the battery, starter, alternator?


Look for loose or corroded battery cables first. You may have a light on too that is draining the battery. Look in the glove box and make sure the light goes out when the door is closed. Same thing if there is a light under the hood.

I disconnected the battery on my 2005 kia sportage now it won't start


A mechanic would check for voltage at the battery cables (dirty?) the starter and the key switch. Also check the ground connections.

Cant find fuse for radio on a 2005 kia sportage


There are two fuse boxes, one under the hood and one under the dash. The position and function of the fuses is normally marked on the inside of the fuse box cover and also in the owner's handbook. If you don't come right with these, work your way through the fuses looking for a blown one. Using a small pair of pliers will help in the removal and replacement of fuses.
