Question about 2007 Kia Rio 1.6
Some vehicles need a substantial amount of fuel put in the tank after they have run out, Sounds daft that they will completely empty the tank, but won't restart unless you put a minimum of 10 litres back in. Most modern tanks are fitted with a swirl pot that cools unused fuel returned to the tank. Try putting extra fuel in it.

fuel pump is burned out from running out of gas, the pump is cooled by the gas it sits in inside the fuel tank, when you run low on fuel or out of gas you over heat the pump severely and the bearings in the pump seize up, have seen it dozens of times in my 30 years of dealer work.

I agree. It is the relay switch. The relay switch is located in the underhood fuse box (looks like a square fuse). It is easily removed and replaced. Had the same problem and had to keep pulling the switch to get the fan to turn off. Replaced by dealer and have had no problem with it since

Please get an expert to check the injector system for you.
This happens when an injector driven engine goes out of fuel.
Next time always watch your fuel guage.

1. First time you can try this simple procedure:
1.1. Ensure ignition switched OFF.
1.2. Wait for at least 3 minutes.
1.3. Disconnect battery earth lead for at least 10 minutes.
1.4. Reconnect battery earth lead.
NOTE: Disconnecting battery may erase memory from electronic units (e.g. radio, clock).
NOTE: Disconnecting battery earth lead may cause driveability problems until the engine management system relearns basic values!
This is applied in order to Engine Control Module (ECM) resetting without having any diagnostic equipment.
2. If the problem still remains, then you need to access the ECM using diagnostic equipment connected to the data link connector (DLC) of the vehicle, in order to pull out all Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC) memored. Then you will be full informed about bad components, and you will be able to repair & replace bad pieces and reset the ECM. Then the check engine light will turns OFF and engine runnings fine.
