Question about 2001 Kia Sportage
What rat tat tat? If you mean the clicking sound, that means that the battery connection is probably corroded or the cable is bad. Clean it up with a tool. Any auto parts store ... about $3. If it is a whine, the starter is bad. If there is a solid click and no turnover, it might be the solenoid relay...but I doubt it. How to get an idea: turn on the headlights and hit the key...if the lights dim significantly, your battery might be bad. If not, check for corrosion or that solenoid. Find out why that light is on!
