I'd suggest taking it to Autozone or a similar place to have the codes checked. I had a similar issue w/my '04 Sorento, it ended up being the crankshaft sensor.

Sounds like a crankshaft sensor problem. if not could also be a mass air flow sensor

I have a 2003 kia sorento lx 3.5 v6. Car turns on Immediately but wont turn over to start


I guess you mean the dash lights up but the engine does not crank over at all. Turn on headlamps and try it. If lamps dim, can be bad battery connections, bad solenoid or starter. If lights do not dim, bad solenoid, ignition switch or starter solenoid wiring.

My 2003 kia sorento's heater will not work. what are possible reasons as to why this is?


check coolant level first. the reservoir also acts as a de-gas bottle so let it run then fill it to max line and let the engine idle to normal operating temp. if its full and temp sensor reads in normal range go drive it on the highway, if the temp gauge plumits then you have a stuck open thermostat

2003 kia sorento will not re start after running around town


Engine temperature spikes when a car is shut down and many cars have an extra switch for the electric fan that will turn them on if the temp rises past a certain point.
That switch may have failed, making it necessary to allow the engine to cool off.
Your car may not even be equipped with that feature so I would suggest trying the following: When restarting soon after shutting off, slowly press the accelerator pedal completely to the floor and don't let up on it until the engine fires. Allow at least 20-30 seconds of cranking before giving up on it. The engine may be getting surplus fuel because of a problem with the computer or a 'cold start valve' that lets the engine draw more fuel when cold so starting it 'hot' it may be getting too much fuel to fire (flooding).
