You will need to reset the radio code .Please consult the Kia dealer close to your place , check on your instruction manual if any codes are in place.
Once it is entered the fault will clear off.

Car wont start unless I boost it checked battery and it reads 12.43 on multi meter and checked when I boosted it and went up to 14on meter


A healthy battery reading 12.43 should still be capable of cranking an engine fast enough with enough current left over for the fuel and sparks to start - that is assuming the spark plugs, etc. are also in good condition.

An off-load reading of 12.43 means little on it's own and is only one of a number of tests used to determine battery state. The most important test is to measure the battery voltage while the engine is cranking. It is reckoned a healthy battery attached to a healthy engine, starter, ignition system, etc. will ideally read no less than 12 volts - an analogue meter is best for this test.

12 volts is rather optimistic even for a serviceable system. 10 volts is more realistic and some engines will happily start at 9 volts as long as the cranking speed is still good but any lower and either the battery is in a too-low state of charge, is faulty or the starter motor is taking too much current and needs servicing.

My car starts only when boosted


Measure the voltage across the car battery with a volt meter with the alternator running .. It needs to read 13.4 volts or higher to charge the battery.

New battery and new starter but still will not crank only clicks


More than likely the charging system is not working and allowing the battery to run down/low. Put a voltmeter on the battery and raise the engine about 2000 rpm and the battery should read 13.5-15.5 volts with all electronics on (fans switch on high, flashers, wipers, headllights, defrost etc). It should also read about 13.5 volts at idle but may not depending on the load from the accessories and voltage regulator. Most important is that it will read 13.5-15.5 volts when the engine is at 2000 rpm with the accessories on. If it does not read in that range the charging system(alternator most likely) has a charging problem.

. took battery out of 1992 firebirdafter replacing


Does the engine crank at all?
Did you replace the battery because it wouldn't start?
It could be the alternator
Check the cable tightness on the battery and where the cables connect to.

Its a pontiac 99 grand am se and it wont start, i got a boost and it started i went back out 2 hours later it was dead again whats wrong.


Sounds like you may have a bad alternator or battery. Get another boos and check the voltage on the battery when the engine is running with a DC meter. It should read between 13.2 to 18.2 volts DC. If it is below 13.2 you will need to replace the alternator. If it is reading between 13.2 and 18.2 volts DC then you may just need to replace the battery.
