Question about 2007 Kia Rio 5 Sx M/T Hatchback

2 Answers

Electrical system issues

I had to jump my car battery off last week and after I did, my radio stopped working. I thought it was the fuse, so I check it...and the fuses were fine. After pulling out the fuses and putting them all back in, now my gas gage, RPM gage and speedometer all don't work anymore. They light up, but they don't move. I have no idea what to do and I am a student, so I have no money to take it some place. Is there a restart or reset button I can push to reset the computer inside?

    we just took our Sportage in with the same problem. They told us it was probably a code but after inspecting it they said they can't fix it. It was KIA roadside ***. that provided the jump. The dealer is telling us to contact them. What a load of ****. There has got to be a simple fix to get the radio working again. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I have a Kia Rio 8 2008 model and i had my car jumped off and my radio hasn't turned on since the Kia Auto sport of pensacola fl said i must have reversed the cables, which i know didn't happen my dad jumped it off and i as standing there! Just a way to get outta fixing it. My fuses are also fine and to have a replacement radio from kia put in by kia will cost me 1,011 just for radio not including labor and other including costs! So I have decided to have a audio store put a cd player in and hook it up. I have looked at all possible aspects and the radio has to b fried sum how.

I believe what happened is the battery died and the computer lost its memory, you didn't hook the jumper cables up backwards at all did you even for a minute?
Does it run now do you have a battery meter what does it read?

Battery his good..jump the battery for 1 second. Car starts drive 2 block car will not start sometime it would start for about 2 weeks then just like that it will not start. Tried everything

When I had a similar problem, the culprit turned out to be a loose battery cable. Is the negative cable tightly secured to the battery post, with nothing between the metal clasp and the lead terminal?

When jumping, or anything else electrical on a vehicle, always connect negative LAST. You could have fried the fuse or the radio. Check fuse first. On newer vehicles jumping is dangerous and can cause system failure.

I left my battery running, and when when i jump started my car, my radio stopped working, im not sure if its a fuse problem, and if it is which fuse is for the radio?

you probably had ur radio on while you was getting the jump check the inside of the fuse box cover for the location of the fuse for your your radio if the fuse is not blown, if you radio is not the factory radio you may have to have the radio removed from the bracket and check the fuse behind the radio.

My clock and radio are suddenly not working in my 2003 grand am

Your Vehicle has two fuse boxes one fuse box under the hood and one inside the vehicle. Check your owner’s manual and you should find the fuse panel at the side of driver’s dash console. Look at the fuse schematics for the fuse description radio then remove that fuse for a visual inspection. If it is good it could be an internal radio problem. However, If the battery jumper cables were hooked up incorrectly it may have damaged a battery cell or the regulator of the alternator and I would have her take it to NAPA, O’Reilly, or Auto Zone to have a free battery and charging system test.
