car is running warm, all fluids are full, when should fan turn on as after 10min of running it has not turned on

It will run for a few seconds but then dies but as long as you are turning the key on and off it stays cranked and running

is that possible?

I replaced the air compressor and needed to install new expansion valve and filter drier. But cannot locate the filter drier at all. Mayb someone could help me please

There is a circular led light around the ignition that is suppose to go off 10 seconds after the door closes. IT never goes off. They have replace the ignition and other unnameable parts to a totally or $704, light still does not go off unless the ignition is on.

my car shakes as I accelerate, but gets better. I had a minor front end accident that just popped my bumper out of place and I popped it back in.

So how can I tell if I need to change my blower motor are my air filter

Received this code today what does this mean.

My brake lights are on when I go out to go to work, and as I'm driving down the road the brake lights will come on and the car will begin to slow down as if I'm pressing the brake. It does it all the time and I'm not even touching the brake. We just replaced the battery and the little fuse contraption on the positive battery post. What could be causing this to happen?

power have been connect back still do not work door locks

I can only start the car. When I go to put the car in park its like the stick doesnt go completely into park

Just finished wiping the engine on my optima with a 2013 sonata engine 2.0 turbo. Now car won't start can hear the relay kick in but no starter. Brake lights stay on after first attempt. Checked all harnesses and they are good. Hit the starter directly and the car started fine. But still will not start with the push start button. Car was doing fine before the engine replacement

when car is is in park and turning off the engine the key wont turn past the acc position to lock so I can remove the key.

where is the ecm located on 2004 kia optima

Same thing happens everyday

I blew a bunch of interior lights and clock light trying to replace a bulk

The battery is good. But now my overhead lights won't turn on and my car won't start with the push button.

My car has a clicking noise when going over a bump or turning, and my steering wheel feels like it moves.

Drove over 200 miles and shows it is not ready did it twice now

I also found thebrear defrost fuse melted and a black wire, that runs from my glove box to my trunk under the flooring, has been cut or broken. I'm not sure where the wire was supposed to run or do, I've checked all the relays, and there's gas in the tank. Its the first time its happened and it won't run now.

I replace the fog lights one when out then before I can get home the other fog light went out.

It always shows my starting position in another place about 4 miles from my home. No matter where I drive--it STAYS in that position. Even though I can plug in a location and it still finds it. My icon just NEVER moves anywhere. Therefore, I can't use it to get directions because it won't go anywhere. (I can't even drive to the place it says I start from.)

i am knot suire

Every time she moves or turn steering wheel, it clicks like it's going get stuck at any time. I don't want her to have any more issues can't afford get this fixed, I don't work. Is this car a recall?

Motor died at signal, starts but not very long and runs real ruff with load clanking sound in motor. Oil looks burnt. No overheating or oil light coming on does anyone know what it could be?

2004 Kia Optima. I have changed feul pump only you find out later the old one was still working. I have changed feul pump relay. When you turn the key it cranks, but won't turn over. We are getting power to the pigtail for the gas gauge. But the same pigtail we aren't getting power for the feul pump. On the data link, we bypassed everything and the feul pump came on. So now we are thinking it has something to do with the ignition switch/cylinder? Does anyone have any idea how to fix this? I can't keep buying parts just to find out the part I took off still works.

My car will crank but not start I open the hood to only find out a pigtail was broke but I've searched and searchrd and CANNOT this part anywhere can you guys PLEASEEEEE help me it's on the left side by on the engine it's apart on the engine

I have a 2012 kia it has the push start button the brake is hard and when you push the start button it will go threw its steps but will not start it doesn't even turn over

My check engine light has been on since I got the car (3 months ago) but starting about 2 days ago my car started shaking really bad when I go under 45mph or at stops/idling. When I go over 45mph it seems to stop. There is a delay on taking off. And sometimes I'll be driving and it cut to where I cant go over 20-25mph and sometimes the car just dies and have to sit for about 5 minutes before I can turn it back on. I'm new to being a car owner so any advice will be appreciated. I don't want to take it somewhere where I'll be given the run around and talked into buying things I really don't need.

I pulled up and stopped fast to get out and threw it in park. Maybe slightly before I was completely stopped. Now it wont start without the fob in the dash. Also, the interior lights wont come on. Ad the blinker indicators on the cluster and high beam indicator doesn't come on. Also, I have to take the batter cable off the terminal or it will kill the battery within about 10-15 mins cause the GPS screen is staying on! And the gear shift button has very little pressure and I can move it out of park without holding the break or button on the shifter. What's the deal?!
