The abs light means your anti-lock brake system has detected a fault and probably isn't working. Your check engine light probably came on at the same time. Get a mechanic or someone with a car computer code reader to connect to the diagnostic port under the dash and read off the error codes to diagnose your problem better.

Kia Rio revs, won't go in any gear

your post is 1 year old. i started helping others 1 week ago. as a fellow rio owner im here to help there are currentl over 5000 un answered posts. if you still need help re-post your problems .its free to get your check engine light checked at most auto parts stores . write down the codes and meanings. 03 kia rio's are blue booked at about $500.
if you re-post with a code you can get faster help. if your car dont have a code . its hunt and guess . my guess would be throtle position sensor,knock sensor or mass air flow

2003 Kia Rio, died while driving, and wouldn't start back up.

Hmm, sorry about your situation.
Two issues you have raised for help: 1) the probable causes of the sudden failure of the car; and 2) the loss of the owner's manual.

I have two links to two articles that specifically deal with these two issues, luckily!

Your car's sudden failure while driving is probably the malfunctioning of the connector of the electrical ignition system. See this diagnostic article:

As to getting another copy of your car's owner's manual, review this article as to the possible sources for getting it:

These two links should help solve your issues.
Good luck!

Why does my car vibrate and noisy at red light and stop sign

My rio kia bought on from uyi technical dealer in benin city, edo state of nigeria only 4 months ago is vibrating with noise while driving. The noise is noticed by other road users even in motion, making a very loud noise or sound that is highly embarrassing. The dealer mechanics have checked more than twice yet no result, instead the hub bearing is observed; tyres are turn over yet the noise persists.

What do think is resolution to the problem? pls help me. Vinson-
