IMO stands for immobilizer. It is anti-theft. You will have to go to dealer.Good luck.

I have a 2003 kia sorento lx 3.5 v6. Car turns on Immediately but wont turn over to start


I guess you mean the dash lights up but the engine does not crank over at all. Turn on headlamps and try it. If lamps dim, can be bad battery connections, bad solenoid or starter. If lights do not dim, bad solenoid, ignition switch or starter solenoid wiring.

Why does my dash lights work but the car wont start


Starter needs 9.5 volts minimum but dash lights will light with far less. Is the engine turning over or totally dead. If dead battery is bad or discharged.

Ran out of gas now wont start


Turn the key untill all of the lights on the dash light up but dont start, then turn off. repeat this about 4 or 5 times. this will prime the fuel rail. if that doesnt work i would suggest getting under the hood and bleeding the air from the fuel rail. on the rail there should be a cap, take that off and use like a pen or your finger to push that like needle in there until fuel comes out. if all else fails it maybe a fuel pump.

BATTERY LIGHT AND EMERGENCY BRAKE STAY LIGHT ON DASH


Hi there:
Check the brake fluid level in the master cylinder. This is the only other thing that will turn that light on. There is a float inside the master and if it is low, the light will come on. Be sure to check and make sure the float comes up when you top it off.

Hope helps.

2004 Rio. It just died on me while I was coming to a stop at traffic lights. It would not start so I tried roll start but wouldn't kick over. I had a mobile mechanic look at it and he said the engine...


If you try to start it and it turns over at all then its not seized. The solution may be as simple as a new fuel filter or a new fuel pump.

When i start my kia there is no lights on the dashe board warning anything is wrong or on. but when i click what should turn on the overdrive the o/d off light come on. does that light mean the over drive...


If the o/d light is illuminated on your dash, the overdrive is turned off on the vehicle. When the light is off, the o/d is on. The light just lights up to tell you that you've turned the o/d off.
