SOURCE: my kia sedona wont start just click when turned on

Couple of things to try.

1. Check that the battery connections are both clean and tight on the battery.
2. Check water level in the battery is above the plates that you can see in the filler holes.
(Handle the battery with care as the water in the battery has been charged and becone sulphuric acid which will burn your skin. Do not get this in your eyes.)

3. Turn the headlights on then start the vehicle, and if:
a) the lights dim the battery is not connecting properly or faulty, or:
b) the lights stay on full it would the starter motor relay or solenoid (part of the starter motor).

SOURCE: 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.

My 2013 Kia Optima makes a clicking noise and won't start. Just had it at dealership two days ago.

1. Check that the wiring to the battery is tight on the battery terminals and the terminals are clean. Try and jump start the car from another vehicle. If it starts then your battery is bad and needs to be replaced. Also have the alternator checked to ensure it is producing the required electrical current to run the vehicle and keep the battery charged.

2. If it does not start with an attempted jump start off another car and your car is still under warranty get the car to the dealer and get them to check the " brake sensor". If the sensor is faulty your car will not start. However with this condition you would not usually hear any clicking either.

My 2005 Kia Optima stalls when sitting at an idle. I have to keep my foot on the gas in order to keep the car running.

Check for vacuum leak in engine area. It will make a hissing noise. Need to do this while engine is running. Leaks are most common do to a disconnected or cracked vacuum line.
