Question about Kia Rio

1 Answer

I have a 2006 Kia Rio 5 speed. purchased new. only 17,567 km on my car. for the last 2 days every time i get in it to start it the key will not turn. steering wheel remains locked. have to try about 20 times before it will actually turn. i always make sure clutch is in all the way, and i release the pressure on the wheel by turning sllighty, but still keeps doing it. will this steering column lock while driving? what is the problem? any help appreciated. Thank you, Crystal

    key won't turn, i tried tuning the steering wheel both ways. i have had problems with this ignition from day one. first it would just grind when i tried to start it. they replaced the one electronic componant. but that didn't last long. now it won't turn at all

    When you try to turn the key do you also try and turn the steering wheel in both directions at the same time? Some steering wheel mechanisms require that. If it is a simple mechanical locking mechanism then it should never lock itself during driving.

Could be a problem with the key lock itself or the steering wheel locking mechanism. Hard to determine without disassembling the steering collumn.

Why doesn't it start??


I guess you are right and it has something to do with having the transmission changed, rather than the transmission itself.

I can't help regarding what is wrong but if you paid good money to have the transmission changed the responsibility for rectifying the fault is the person or company that caused it.

I suggest you go and have a meaningful discussion...

2006 Kia Rio will not turn over


the timing belt will not have anything to do with the motor turning over trying to start. First make sure u do have a very strong battery. Could be a bad connection or a broken wire to starter also.
