Question about 2004 Kia Rio
New fuel pump, new 80 amp fuse, clutch done a year ago, new engine 5 yrs ago
How many miles do you have on the new engine? Did you install it yourself? Was it a long or short block install? Was the timing belt on the replacement engine new? Does the engine crank over faster than what would seem normal? If your engine has more than 80K miles on it, you may have a broken timing belt.

there is a splice for fuel injectors at the front of the fuel rail conduit and electric tape will need to be removed to see if it is ok then clean up all engine grounds and ecm grounds on passenger side kick panel if this doesnt help check coils and crank sensor

p0560 is system voltage problem. open or short between the battery positive and the ecm.CHECK ALL FUSES. dosnt matter what they are labeled under dash and under hood replace any that are bad and retry to start. no start then check voltage to ecm grounds to. i dont have a wireing diagram to give you but for a small fee or free the dealer can make you a copy.make sure all the wires that go to battery terminals are not corroded and are making good contact [verified with volt meter]. if after all checks ok then replace ecm. as a side note i havent had to change one ever.

Testimonial: "Thank you for the help. We will continue to check all fuses and wires."

could be a grounding problem, first try a selinoid jump. It could be the neutral safety switch. I would take it to Autozone, checker or other major parts retailer, they will check the battery, alternator, and starter motor. And they'll run a diaignostic check of your cars computer system. At no charge to you. If your lights don't dim when you get your clicking noise that is probably the thing to investigate first. Getting a jump sends extra ummph to the solenoid to overpower a poor connection. Your solenoid could be failing. The click is your solenoid getting power , but not enough to jump forward and engage the starter which in turn turns your flywheel. Remember it is either your fuel, compression, or electrical. I'm betting your solenoid is going out, since it starts when you jump start it. from a mother of 10

SOURCE: My 1999 Kia Sportage won't start. I checked the fuel pump while the key is on the ignition and I get the impression that it is not getting any juice. Fuel pump fuse is OK. Both cam and crank se
Well for starters, you need to diagnose the problem before replacing anymore parts. I say this because you mention both the fuel pump and sensors dealing with the ignition system which are 2 separate main things. Basically it takes 2 things to make an engine start, fuel and spark at the spark plugs. You need to narrow down what is missing because it seems since you replaced sensors dealing with spark and then you mention the other need fuel. I'm not sure as to where to start to help until whatever is missing is diagnosed and then find the cause of the loss. There are a couple of things you can check. Below is a picture of the relay box in the engine compartment. With the help of somebody put a finger touching both the fuel pump relay and the EGI main relay. While touching them have somebody turn the key to the "on" position (no need to try and start). When the key is turned on you should feel a "click" inside both of those relays. The fuel pump relay will click for about 3 seconds and the click again to shut off. The EGI main relay should stay on. If both seem to be fine you need to make sure of the fuel pump gettting "juice" and for power to the ignition system like the coils. You can get to the power/juice wire at the fuel pump pretty easy. You can access the connection at the fuel pump by lifting the lower part of the rear seat. Once the seat is lifted you should be able to see a part in the carpet that is cut to be able to lift the carpet up and access the plate covering the access to the fuel pump and/or the top of the fuel tank. Using a test light, check the green and yellow wires at the fuel pump. You should have power at those wire when turn the engine over or if the key is just turned to the on position you should have power there for about 3 seconds. To begin checking for spark or power to the ignition system you need to make sure you are getting power to the ignition coils. The red and white wires at the coils are your power wires. Check those. Also you can check the power at the fuel injectors. When the key is turned on or when trying to start, you should have power to the green wire at each of the fuel injectors. You should have constant power/juice at each of the fuel injectors. This is where I would start to narrow down the loss. Start here with these tests and let me know how the tests come out by replying/commenting here or you can email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org ith what you have found out. Once the first tests are done and I know what the results are, we can go to the next step with a couple of other tests to figue the problem out. If one of the relays don't "click" then you have a possible bad relay. The EGI main relay is a common thing to go as well as the fuel pump relay. Don't mind helping and there is no cost to you for it but I don't want to tell you to start replacing parts until the problem is located. Hope this helps get you started.
