did you use aftermarket crank sensor? if so that might be your problem. dealer has several different ones, by providing vin number, but there is only one after market for all optimas 01-05. try to connect thick pink wire and thick orange wire together on the ignition failure sensor. you might have the same problem as me. good luck.

check all your rounds on the body, behind kick panels, and in engine compartment. The relays you hear clicking are the power relay whcih turns your engine computer on. The other relay is the fuel pump relay, which is turned on by the engine computer. start there, report back.

PS. When you press the gas pedal to the floor during cranking, it shuts off the fuel supply to clear a flooded engine.

Car cranks but goes dead and will not idle, what's wrong?

Carbon on the IAC - idle air control valve or it is bad ! The engine computer controls the idle by way of the idle air control valve . Or a stuck open EGR valve will cause the same problem . EGR - exhaust gas recirculation - adds a small amount of exhaust gas to be introduced into the engine with fresh charge of air an fuel to lower combustion temperature to stop formations of NOX -oxides of nitrogen. Or the throttle plate needs to be cleaned Section 20 Idle Speed Controls lecture preview

Wont start with key

Do you have a bad starter? also check for loose or dirty battery cables on both ends of cables as the starter does take a lot of pull and a dirty or loose cable won't give it the power to start but will let the lights work.
