Question about 2002 Kia Rio

1 Answer

I have the same problem

My car has been doing this the past 2 days, it will start almost to the point of starting, all my dash lights will go on and it will sputter and die... if I give it a few minutes and try again, it starts and runs fine. But if I leave it sitting over night and start it in the evening.. it does the same thing! Any ideas?

The car is a C class diesel automatic which will not start, despite charging the battery and refitting it. the dash lights are intermittent and electronic key will not move past position 2


You basically answered your own question. your problem would be the ignition switch.. If you have push button start, this would be different. It would have to go on a scanner to find the problem. Or at least where to start looking.

Digital dash gauges all read zero, onstar not working...


for nothing on the dash to work ,it indicates that a ground wire is missing, broken or the ground point is rusted
Could be the BCM unit so run the fault codes as well

My car started out by stalling when I put the right turn signal on but would start back up. Now it died and will not start back up has new battery. the dash lights come on but when you turn the key


Sounds like you might have wire problem.
Try turning the key to the point before ignition. This is actually a dashboard test that have all lights on the dashboard turn on. Try to see if the lights are completely bright or a bit dull in the light.

You battery might be uncharging itself, instead of charging. I have tried that. even with an only 1-2 day old battery.

Got a focus 1.8 deisel zetec 2006, had an engine systems fault light on for past few days, lack of power at speeds up to about 50 mph then seems to clear and call pulls away and light goes off, maybe fuel...


If no lights on dash then the battery terminals are corroded high resistance, if you have light in the dash and still the eng doesnot turn then I would suspect the starter selonide. As for the system light you migh have to get it scanned look into History codes.
