    Hey Fran_Mcgarry...I'm in Chattanooga as well and I'm dealing with the same problem with a 2008 Kia Spectra5. Did you ever get this problem fixed? If so, mind sharing what you did? Also, was your Kia Spectra an electric blue, manual transmission? I bought the car from the dealer so maybe it's the same one.

SOURCE: Kia spectra wont start

it is probably the starter assuming the engine isnt locked up. I would check to see if you have battery voltage at the starters solenoid wire with the key in the start position if you do i would check the fuses and starter relay

SOURCE: 2003 kia spectra check engine code p0604

I have bad news for you
p0604 is a transmission control module

check the connection at the transmission control module if there are no connection issues than you will need to replace the transmission controll module "tcm" there is no other test for that code.

good luck

You probably need to loosen the battery terminals and clean them. What you are saying is typically what happens if the battery posts are very corroded or, if one, or both of the cables are loose. Look for corrosion around the cables too.

if you want to make sure if there is chip/transponder in your key, you can test it using silver paper (the one from inside the cigarette pack), wrap properly the plastic handle of your key and make sure the only thing can see is the metal from your key. then start your engine and if it does't start , it means there is chip built in in your key.

I have a 2008 kia with the same water sloshing in the dash sound when I stop, start and sometimes when I turn corners. I too thought I was hearing things. I'm kind of glad others have had the same...


There is a TSB from kia that suggests jacking up the front of the car and run the engine. That sound is caused by engine coolant going through the heater core inside your car. I will also try to bleed the system.
