Question about 2004 Kia Amanti
REPLACED BATTERY AND VEHICLE WILL NOT START HAS CODE P1609 AND ONLY STARTS WITH FUEL ADDED TO INTAKE RAN FOR 10 MILES AND 1 HOUR DID NOT RESTART AFTER SHUT DOWN KEYLESS ENTRY WORKS
A P1609 code is an "Immobilizer Malfunction." Put your key in the ignition turn it to the "on" position (don't start it). *if the light with the car with the key on it is solid - the key is recognized by the computer. **if it is flashing the computer doesn't recognize the key. The immobilizer will not let the car start if the immobilizer light flashes on the dash when the key is in the on position. The car will need to have the key coded to the computer by an automotive locksmith or you will have to spend a lot more at the dealer.

Computer reset for starters
Second alternator is failing get tested
Third fuel filter and pump
These are the norms for routine maintenance with battery change
Since battery died we know it wasnt getting voltage on the road
Or it was getting it intermitently
The alternator can pass tests intermitently
The best old fasioned way of testing alternator run vehicle disconnect from battery positve side
Let run if power drop or car stops alternator needs replaced
Battery is only good for starting a vehicle
All other power like accessories comes from a transformer in vehicle that stores voltage
Youll see in car a second bar with ground and power going to it this is your transformer do not jump accross transformer
Other then mentioned above routine maintenance is needed

SOURCE: fuel system shutdown
Check for an impact shutdown switch- this is to stop fuel pumping in case of an accident. Switch is probably in or around the access door on the left rear interior. I've seen this problem in a lot of vehicles, havent had the prroblem with my Sedona.\, so I don't know exact switch locatioin. If your vehicle is high milage, it could also be fuel pump failure. Check all fuses too, include the block under the hood on the left side.

p0560 is system voltage problem. open or short between the battery positive and the ecm.CHECK ALL FUSES. dosnt matter what they are labeled under dash and under hood replace any that are bad and retry to start. no start then check voltage to ecm grounds to. i dont have a wireing diagram to give you but for a small fee or free the dealer can make you a copy.make sure all the wires that go to battery terminals are not corroded and are making good contact [verified with volt meter]. if after all checks ok then replace ecm. as a side note i havent had to change one ever.
