2003 Kia would not start

I drove a used 2003 Kia sorrento yesterday and everything was fine. I checked to see what bulbs i needed so that i could replace it. Now today the car would not start. The check engine light comes on but the car wouldnt start. Do you think I did something wrong when I played with the front headlights. Also the car has been sitting for over 3 weeks. I only drove once for 2hrs. What could be the problem

Could be a cam or crank shaft sensor should have nothing to do with the headlights.

I have a 2003 kia sorento drove home one night everything fine next day start SUV brake and battery light comes on and daytime driving lights don't work what is the problem

These foreign cars usually light up like this when the alternator is bad. Check battery voltage with vehicle off. Start vehicle and check again. It has to be at least 1-1.5 Volts higher than when off. If not, charging error and usually the alternator.

Good luck,

I have a 2003 Kia Sorrento and I just replaced my water pump and now as long as its cold it will run fine but once it warms up it back fires and wants to die. What could be causing this.

I would check the coolant temperature sensor. This tells the ECM what the coolant temp is. The ECM uses this to adjust the fuel rate and engine timing when the engine is cold. If the sensor isn't letting the engine know that the engine is warming up properly, then the engine will continue to get too much fuel and the timing will not be optimal. This can cause poor fuel economy, engine flooding issues, and possibly backfiring.

Was driving in snowy conditions and all of sudden my van stopped. got it towed to the mechanic, he checked and found nothing wrong. He drove for tqo days and gave it to me. Then I drove for 3 weeks all...

Sounds like you have moisture getting into your ignition somewhere. Have your mechanic look at it again but have him water down engine compartment, little at a time.
