Question about 2005 Kia Sportage

1 Answer

Pretty sure my girlfriend's battery is going bad

2005 Kia Sportage. It's starting to have a 1 second delay to start. I don't hear any weird cranking sounds like a starter, and it will stay running and all electric works when running.

I cleaned her cables which were a bit corroded.

What kind of battery does it take?

Hi.I have a kia sportage 2015. This morning the engine wouldn't start and the immobilizer light would stay on for a few seconds before disappearing without blinking.Any idea what the problem could be?


is the key or fob battery good

if it is cranking over but not starting could be anything
fuel or electronic spark related

if the engine light on ..there will be fault codes
a 2105 kia sportage will need a diagnostic scanner to narrow down the no start problem

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.

My 1999 Kia Sportage won't start. I put a new fuel pump in replaced the car battery . Need help please...


Im dealing with a similar situation. But have found that I have no spark. By opening the end of the air intake and giving a little squirt of starter fluid and no start. Opened access to FP and pulled a hose. No fuel. So no fuel no spark. reading lots and lots of forums I have come to the conclusion it is either the Cam or the Crank sensor. The crank sensor is easier to get to and cheaper. I am going to check that first.

2000 Kia Sportage won't start


My guess would be something has happened to the fuel pump in the tank. I would make sure the pump has voltage when cranking the engine to verify.

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.

2000 kia sportage. replaced starter, battery, alt. Timing belt in great shape. I only get a click when trying to start. Any ideas?


get a socket to fit the crank pulley nut and try turning over the engine by hand if it turns you might have a bad cable to the starter or bad starter but if you cant turn it this means its locked up and seized no good.

When we go to start the kia up it makes the noise like its trying to start but doesnt start up what may be my problem.


Make sure battery has full voltage. A battery may have enouph power to crank the engine but not enough juice to create the high spark it needs to ignite the compressed fuel.
