Question about 2009 Kia Sportage LX
Autozone said alternator was bad.took to shop couldnt fine anything wrong.
Your auto shutdown relay for the batt is bad after so long it switchs off when voltage gets too low so you have enough pwr to crank the car sound like it stuck it in the engine fuse box change that see what happens and check you door latch sensors those could be bad get a scanner that can test the body controll moduel and that will tell you if its open or closed or finds it pwr stick a test light in it and see if it goes off if so check for a bad radio pull fuse see what happens

I'd go with Autozone's diag. Your battery is probably also on the verge of failing too. Have a qualified shop that does starting & charging system testing check your Kia out. Or just have Autozone do it. When the engine is off, the battery supplies power to everything on board. When it becomes drained, everything shuts off. The alternator is responsible for keeping the battery charged. Sounds to me like you need to replace both.

Have the charging system rechecked. It sound an AWFUL lot like an alternator not charging the battery to me.

SOURCE: My 03 Kia rio wouldn't
It can be faulty ignition switch or short in ignition cylinder lock.When you turn the car off.It must be showing that car key is turned to off but actually the car not turning off.Get the ignition switch checked with meter and also check the ignition lock cylinder.Also recharge your car battery.It must show 12 volts.Then drive your car for few hours.Then after few hours check the voltage of the battery again.The battery voltage before and after both should be 12 volts.But if the voltage is getting dropped then its the case of faulty alternator.But as per you the alternator is replaced,still get the alternator checked by meter and check the connection between battery to alternator.In some cases the new alternator comes faulty.Get confirmed by the repair shop that the new alternator is functioning properly. Also check properly that your car ac is turning off when its switch is turned off. Also check that head light and other lights are turning off when you turn the lights of.If any light in-case remains off then there is a short in the light wiring causing the problem of battery draining. Thanks. keep updated for any more query.you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

SOURCE: the fuel injector fuses keeps
There is a short circuit to ground on one of the circuits that the fuse protects. I need more information about your car and exactly which fuse is blowing. (Year, Make, Model, Engine size) All of the circuits powered by that fuse must be traced to find exactly what is causing it to blow. Most of the components can be eliminated as the cause by unplugging them one at a time and checking the fuse connector with a test light. (Otherwise, you could go through a lot of fuses trying to figure it out.)

need to check your starter before going to check the sensor.
