Question about Kia Sportage
It has dash board lights when you try to start it but it won't turn over. Sometimes it will start after 10 or fifteen minutes of trying, but today it will not start at all.
You don't mention age/condition of battery. Many times the battery has enough juice to activate the dash lights, gauges and headlamps, but not enough to crank the engine. Or you may be having problems in the starting system: weak solenoid, flex plate/fly wheel in need of replacement, etc.

Many cars these days are equipped with an immobilizer. (you can find more information about the immobilizer in your owner's manual). The immobilizer allows the engine to run only if the correct key is used. If your car has an immobilizer, you probable see a "Security" or Key-shaped light coming on on the dashboard every time you turn the ignition ON. If this light is flashing when you turn the ignition ON, it could mean that there is some problem with an immobilizer or the system does not recognize the key. If the immobilizer doesn't recognize the key, the engine wold not start at all, or would start and then die in few seconds.
You can try a spare key, if it won't work, your dealer is the place to call. Sometimes, the key is just need to be reprogrammed. On some cars you can find the information how to reprogram the key in the owner's manual...
