Question about Kia Cars & Trucks
So you put new battery in it, and you thought that fixxed it.
Had a light been on prior to that, that did not come on immediately? Has it come on since then?
Your second sentence ..
First time no... Did it crank over at all and just not start?
Was this the next morning? How long did you crank it, and it not start?
When it did start did it fire right up or did it take a while?
It should have developed fuel pressure right away on turning the key on.
To get the injectors signal going and the. Spark plugs firing the computer requires pulses from the cam and crank shaft. Sensor .And multiple other sensors come into play as it warms up to optimize the air fuel mix.
Cold starting issues and hard start conditions usually indicate basic tune up issues .
Old plugs or fouled plugs. Plug wires issues including damp wet or arcing wire s
Fuel delivery issued.
Dirty injectors , weak pump or clogged filter.
Even fuses or relays that power up the computer and other control circuits can be on the way out and fail intermittently. Poor electrical connections often escape detection
How's it doing today? Is the battery charging .Is it possible the starter was the original problem?
Looks like lot of potential problems but you can narrow it down
An Obd scan tool may help you pin it down or aborate over the course of a few more starts

Testimonial: "When I put the battery in there was no problem with starting it. It started like normal I let it warm up. No dashboard warning lights on all went off like normal, Never had this happen before, was thinking the battery ground wire might be lose. When I'm driving it runs great"
