the car will not start if the immo light is not lit. sometimes turning the key back and forth or removing it and locking then unlocking the car can sometimes remedy this.

if the immo light doesnt come on it means the ecu has left the immobilizer on. it is a commen fault on kia. if you lock and unlock the car or sometimes just take the key out the ignition then put it back in it sorts the problem. if you dont see the IMMO light dont attempt to start it because it wont fire

Inside a key for your car there is a small RFID chip that holds the authorisation code for the immobilizer. This is a chip that is powered by the antenna in the contact switch - there is no battery in the key. If the antenna has a bad contact it will not generate enough power so the chip inside the can't be powered enough to send the authorisation code back to the antenna and from there to the immobilizer.
You will need to remove the shrouds on the steering shaft and inspect the contacts to the ignition key - in the worst case scenario the ignotion key hub and its antenna will have to be replaced. This is a very complicated job that can be done only by a very experienced mechanic - you will have to take the car to a dealer's repair shop.
