You need a wiring diagram and trouble shooting flow chart. Kia as a car manufacturer put a lot of great technical information and work shop manuals on line for free for Kia owners. www.kiatechinfo.com

check if you have crank signal I have changed many crank position sensors. I have seen the balance shaft belt break and take out the sensor. You will need a scope to check the sensor.

Ok I was thinking hyundai not kia sorry for the confussion. Kia is a ground issue hyundai is the crank sensor. So anyway clean all grounds under battery box and on intake before you buy computer. My experience I never had to buy a computer. Also find a better ground at computer. clean paint away and use star washers kia's are ground nightmares. If you decide you need help I will charge $80 to find the answer. good luck
