Question about 2004 Kia Spectra

1 Answer

Car not starting, wanting to stall, and it shakes.

My wife is having these problems while I am away in Iraq, and the KIA dealer in Germany says they can't do anything about it, and the Aafes car care won't even touch it. So I need some answers on why this might be happening! The check engine light comes on. My father in law said it might be the fuel injector pump, but would that make the car shake? It has to be something with the fuel though right? I am completely ignorant to these things and I need help desperately. My wife and children are riding around in this car and I can't afford to be worrying about their safety where I am. Thank you.

Yes it can hurt the electrical system if you disconnect the battery while the engine is running.
It can toast the diodes in the alternator and cook the computer along with other problems.
You'll need to check the fuses and the engine computer.

You need a code scanner hooked up to find out what is causing the light ot come on. Some auto part stores can do that. Once the code is retrieved, they can tell you what sensor is causing it.
