needs looking at because it could be switch that allows it to turn on if sufficient gas is present ,or a problem with the clima compùter ,but to do anything you will need the special machine to empty the system then check things out so take to an authorised AC garage ,because these systems are a potential accident and you could lose a finger with frostbite in a matter of less than 2 seconds .therefore i will not tell you how to look for a soloution because of the dangerous nature of playing with air con

2002 kia spectra will not start...battery is good but will not turn over


Try checking the starter. If the battery is good and fully charged, that's not the problem. And that would eliminate the alternator also. So try getting the starter tested.
