2011 Kia Sportage Problems

S.U.V. comes on but wont start.

When you get into the car everything works fine untill you try to start it. Some times it starts after a few ties, but increasingly the few tries turn into 20 minutes, into not at all.

The solution: Replace the faulty brake switch. This should be a recall. Just research it online and you will see there are many people with this exact same problem.

Software Update Available to Correct Transmission Issues

Reprogramming the transmission control module with the latest Kia transmission software may fix abnormalities in the automatic transmission and erroneous transmission-related Check Engine Light illumination.

However, whenever major transmission repairs are performed the transmission software should be checked and updated as necessary.

Replacing the faulty clutch assembly does not necessitate replacement of the complete AC compressor or evacuation and recharging of the air conditioning system.
