Question about 2009 Kia Carnival 2.9

1 Answer

What do I do when all of my dash lights start blinking and the car dies?

This thing runs fine then out of the blue the dash lights will start blinking and it dies...and kills the battery so I charged the battery then it cranked right up. So I pulled the hot wire off of the battery to see if the alternator was charging and it died. So I thought the alternator so I put a brand new one on it....It is doing the same thing again and the new alternator has only been on it for two days . Could someone please help?

I just replaced the alternator and the serpentine belt and now the engine runs like ****. It turns over for a second or two and the dies.


almost sound like you have too much voltage if the batter is fully charged prior to starting. may have got a bad alternator or you a have a bad regulator.

2002 -Can different tread wear on the tires mess up the computer? I replaced one front tire that was bad and now it won't run. The lights go on and off the dash lights blink like a xmas tree.before it died...


Hi

It has nothing to do with the tyre, I would disconect the battey for around 1 hour, overnight if possible the computer may have been tripped out this can happen a lot on honda' toyotas and other makes so I would look at that first.

Also is the clicking coming from inside the dash or is it the starter motor clicking??? please clarify!
Is the car manual transmission or auto? please clarify.

Get back to me with the detais as I have a couple of things you can try.
Regards

Dash lights blink, engine stalls then runs on 1997 Buick LeSabre


Given the amount of electronic's on your vehicle , an control modules , have a full vehicle scan done . Not at a parts , thier diagnostic tool will not check BCM -body control module , Instrument cluster , air bag module codes . Your vehicle maybe have communication problem between modules . Suggest you google GM class 2 serial data communication network .

Car died the other day, and now it wont start. Everything such as dash and radio seem to be working fine.


hi there the things to check are do you have a spark at the plugs?
do you have compression ?
are the cam shafts turning?
is the cam belt intact?
this are all needed to make the engine run it will turn over great but not start with this things not working infact if the last 3 are not there it will sound diffrent when you are turning it over with the key.

hope this helps Regards JR

I believe it still may be a weak battery. Try to give your car a jump and see if it starts

WOW That's weird and bad!
there should be lots of thing to be check on your car.
starting from battery, fuses, relays, solenoid to spark plugs.
fuel line, filters, and injector/carburetor.
if only your car looses power while driving then your fuel filter could be blocked. check and remove any dirt/blockages.
if starter (starting) fine, and car start normally, check the spark plugs.
