One simple thing yu can try, with the engine off, open your fuse box and pull each fuse and plug it back in several times.
I won't take but a few minutes and since your car is a few years old, you may have some poor contact that is causing the problem.
Also, if you live in an area where salt is used on the road, it would make sense to locate any grounding points exposed to spray, loosen and spray them with WD-40 or similar, then tighten them again.
Flaky grounds can cause all kinds of mysterious random problems.

Those things don't cost much and can often cure odd problems.

While driving down road my kia 2002 spectra just died and now when I turn key it just clicks and all the dash lights and radio go out


was there any warning lights before dieing ?it would seem to be an alternator/charging problem,is the serpent belt ok? try jump starting or changing the battery, if she starts then check for ignition charge light staying on, if she still wont start/turnover could be a starter motor problem or a jammed alternator, if she wont turn over on a fully charged battery or jump leads remove the serpent belt that drives the alternator/AC /power steering etc try starting again if ok switch off and try turning each pulley driven by the serpent belt by hand the only one you should not be able to turn is the main crankshaft pulley, if any of the others are hard or impossible to turn you have found the problem

What does the check battery charging system light mean you have just changed the alternator, starter and had the battery checked. The car will stay on battery and the alternator will not pick up the t


The warning light means the alternator is not charging the battery.
Since you have replaced the alternator it could be defective or the problem could be in the wiring harness. There is a fuse or a fuse wire between the alternator and battery which could have blown.
You may need a shop manual to have the test procedures and wiring diagrams.

Battery not charging car is dead and will not start


Starting with the battery light, the warning light means the alternator is not charging the battery. It could be a faulty alternator, or a problem with the wiring between the battery and the alternator.
Normally you can drive a vehicle for several miles on the battery alone.
If you have charged the battery and it checks out ok, you would need to check the wiring from the battery to the alternator and to the fuse box for problems.

Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

Battery light coming on. After turning van off, would not start


Your description makes me believe that your alternator is faulty. The system not charging turns the battery light on. The van will not start because the battery is discharged from powering the electronics that should have been powered by the alternator. Start by charging the battery to a full charge, and then test or have the alternator tested.

OK your problem is the Alternator isent charging the battery How to check it is to charge battrty first and then start the engine and turn on the head lights Noe see how bright they are and with lights still on turn off the engine Do the lights stay the same or go dim .
Now with lights still on start engine again and watch the h/lights Do the brighten up if no then turn all off and your answer is the alternator needs either replacing or change over as the battery is a 12 volt and the alternator charges at 13.5 volts AC current but the car is DC but the alternator changes the voltage to DC automaticly.
Let me know how you get on with it Ron

Volts Light


This is caused by the Alternator. Also, Check the Belt for Tightness.

Please clarify, Although the alternator light is on, can you start the car? Does it turn over, but not start? If it won't turn over, you 1st need to charge the battery and try to start it. If the light remains on, have your alternator checked, it probably isn't charging the battery. How old is the battery? If it doesn't charge up, it should also be tested to make sure it's ok. Let me know the answers to the above, and let me know what happens. good luck countrycurt0
