Question about 2002 Kia Rio
Tried to jump kia rio and it started right up-drove it for a min. and it died again-The batter is pretty new but right befor it died the wipers started going really slow,rpms dropped to zero and air bag sensor came on-Is it electrical?I dont think its the alternator because the battery sensor light should have come on. Whats wrong with it?Thank you. CJ
The battery is only use to start the car, once the car is moving the alternator takes over and charges the battery. I sounds like the alternator is bad. You take the alternator to Napa, Auto Zone or Advance auto part and have them check it for you.
