SOURCE: 2004 Kia Sedona wont start but i can hear starter.

if the starter is revving very slowly it is the battery, charge battery. if not, It can be three things happing. 1 no spark 2 no fuel 3 no crank signal or the car computer is bad- you will need to unplug one of the spark wires and remove the spark plug and put the spark plug in the spark plug wire boot, and touch the spark plug on any metal on the car and have some start the car. donot touch the spark plug itself and see if there is a spark. if spark is bright, then it is not spark plug and wires but if no or spark is not bright, check the spark plug wires by applying a little bit of water on the spark plug wire and take a 12v test light, connect the clap to ground and and have some one to crank the vehicle, touch allover the spark plug wires with the tip of the test light, if you see spark, replace the wires and change the plugs.. they are not good. if spark is present, check for fuel by removing any one of the spark plugs and see if it is wet. if wet fuel pump is ok but if not go look for the fuel pump fuse and relay. is fuse blown, replace, check the relay resistor with a volt meter. it should be around 40 to 80 ohm. if everything is good from this point check the fuel pump itself by disconnecting the connector to the pump and apply 12v and ground using jumper wires or some wires to the fuel pump if you donot hear the pump,replace pump. if you, the crank signal or computer may be the problem

SOURCE: My 2001 Kia Sephia suddenly won't start.

even if your starter is out it would still click when you tried starting the car. so try replacing your battery first thats the most common problem for random starting. also look under the car you may need to jack it up. look under the intake manifold that is where the starter is check to see that everything is hooked correctly and that all the bolts are tightend securley and not loose on one side.

Your battery may be weak, or becoming dead celled!! Replace it with a new one and if the problem persists, replace the alternator!

How do I start my 2004 kia rio, I changed the engine?


Check connections at starter as well for any grounds you may have disconnected during engine replacement. If vehicle started prior to engine replacement, suspect something loose or disconnected

Avalon wont start batt seems fine just clicking


seems, means nuttn. (no jumper cables,?????)
only a volt meter works, seems is zero .
a rested charged battery and (warm temps) is 12.6vdc.
you crank it, (not in Klondike?) and battery holds above 11v. cranking
does it? if not the battery is bad, or not charged.
jumper cables to other car fix it?
barrowed battery from wifes good car fix it?
no,
no.?
ok are battery cables cleaned, the lugs.
yes.
you hot wire the starter (keys in pocket)
starter works (engine dont start for safety here)
it fails to crank, starter is bad.
it cranks, that means the key line is dead.

if key line fails, did you wiggle the shifter cranking, , do so.
if that starts car the PRNDL switch is bad. on trans side.

Kia rio wont start all of the sudden not the battery


If you can hear a clicking sound when turn the key and your battery is charged, your problem could be starter or ignition key switch.

Check aftermark or antitheft system there.

My shuma 1.5 ls was running fine, then just wouldnt start. Push starts fine, went for a drive and it seems the battery isn't charging, its a newish battery, altenator and starter seems fine. Why?


Have the battery load tested to determine the health and it's ability to take and hold a charge...the alternator can be tested too. If they test fine check your clutch switch. Hope this helps.

I have a 98 kia sephia an i cant get it to start and the starter is good but when i turn the key the starter doesnt make any noise


What happens when you try to jump start it? If it starts by jump starting then the problem is in your charging system (alternator or battery).

You should also check the fuses and make sure the starter fuse is good.

My 2003 KiA sedona,acts like the battary wants to die and then suddenly it starts, has been doing this for 3 days.


1st: Battery needs to be checked (no weak or dead cells) then fully charged.
2nd: If battery is good and fully charged, the problem could be excessive amp draw from the starter, a starter draw test would determine if the starter is drawing too much battery power.

When I put my key in the ignition and turn it, I cannot start the car. It started just fine an hour ago. I have no mechanical problems it just wont turn on


turn the headlights on .. if they dont light then suspect a bad battery connection or bad battery .. if they do light then try to start the car ..if the lights go out .. again suspect the above .. if they dont then suspect a starter problem .. that could include the neutral safety switch (on the gear shift) and in some cars the brakes have to be on in order to enable the starter .. that could be a bad brake safety switch .. if you hear a click when the starter is operated then you could have a bad soloniod or starter .. it is not unusual for a battery that is several years old to fail suddenly ..

01 kia optima stalled and wont start...starter just clicks


It seems the starter is playing up.First check if your battery is charged fully or try to jump start and see what happens.If the engine start then it's either you need a new battery or else you need a replacement alternator.Test using a voltmeter if the actual altenator is working.Finally the last option is the starter motor that needs changing or fixing...Hope this helps.
