Maybe. Generally, there are a couple of things 'on the way'. First, check the battery. Turn on the headlights. Are they bright? Now...add the heater fan. If not, clean the terminals. Still a problem...recharge the battery or get a jump to get you going.

Some starters have an integrated solenoid relay. When you turn the key, is the relay activating...pulling in the gear? If not, check out whether you're getting power there. Could be a bad ignition switch. If the pull-in is happening and the motor not activating...it's the solenoid switch or the starter motor itself. Most chain auto shops will test a starter for you for free. When reinstalling, make sure the bolts are tight and all connections as well.

My 1999 Kia Sportage won't start. I put a new fuel pump in replaced the car battery . Need help please...


Im dealing with a similar situation. But have found that I have no spark. By opening the end of the air intake and giving a little squirt of starter fluid and no start. Opened access to FP and pulled a hose. No fuel. So no fuel no spark. reading lots and lots of forums I have come to the conclusion it is either the Cam or the Crank sensor. The crank sensor is easier to get to and cheaper. I am going to check that first.

A mechanic would check for voltage at the battery cables (dirty?) the starter and the key switch. Also check the ground connections.
