Question about 2001 Kia Sephia
My 2001 Kia Sephia would start fine sometimes, and then sometimes I would have to try 3 or 4 times to start it. The horn was not working, so I replaced it. After reconnecting the battery cable, the built in security system activated and the horn beeped a bit and then stopped. Then when I turned the key, all the lights light up, radio comes on, etc. But it won't start - no click, no noise, nothing. Is there some type of security block? The previous owner said the security thing never really worked. Battery seems fine. If it was just the starter, would'nt the cylenoid at least click? I guess I could start with a new battery and if it doesn't start then, try the starter? Do starters just die that quick?
Even if your starter is out it would still click when you tried starting the car. so try replacing your battery first thats the most common problem for random starting. also look under the car you may need to jack it up. look under the intake manifold that is where the starter is check to see that everything is hooked correctly and that all the bolts are tightend securley and not loose on one side.
