2001 Kia Rio ProblemsUpdated Control Module to Correct False Check Engine Light
Due to a problem with the automatic transmission control computer, you may experience erroneous Check Engine Light illumination; an updated control module is available.
I purchased this vehicle because I was tired of purchasing used vehicles and having to make repairs all of the time. I have had to have the ignition coils replaced 2 times within the last year. This wouldn't be a bug deal if each coil wasn't $100+ to replace! I do not recommend this vehicle at all.

Used one put on before the new one and it's still doing the same thing. I thought well maybe the used one was bad, but the new one to. I also have a new battery in it. So what do I do? Could it be an electrical problem or should I take the new one back?
