> The battery is good, interior and exsterior lights strong, volts good, but the engine won't turn over.
Any of the accessories will operate fine with a nearly dead battery and will only pull down the battery voltage at the terminals very little. A healthy battery will deliver at least 11 volts with all your lights, stereo, power windows, etc. operating at once. If your lights are only dimming a little when starting, you may have an oxidized connection at the starter terminal so this needs to be checked too.
If the ground terminal (negative) is corroded where chassis and engine come together, this can drop too much voltage and, if bad enough, could shut down your engine too.

I would guess starter fuse first, then starter. When you turn key, if you don't hear a click, you should focus your attention on the fuse first and then the starter. If you hear a click, then most likely (80%) its the starter solenoid. try to start the car in neutral to rule out the neutral safety switch...good luck

You may need a starter. My 99 Kia would get me places and would refuse to start. Someone hit the starter with a wrench and it started right up. I had to hit the starter to get my Kia to start until I replaced it.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 2000 kia sephia won't start
hello. i am not a mechanic but maybe our cure for our kia would help someone else. our 2000 kia wouldnt start, the lights and everything would come on but it wouldnt turn over. we replaced starter, battery, etc. finally my husband just paid our mechanic $130 and we bypassed the starter with a manual push start button. now when it doesnt want to start i just hit the button (after i turn on the key) and it starts every time!
