1997 Kia sephia will not turn over. Car basically starts but will not turn over? I have checked all fuses and replaced them. Also checked spark plugs and we have fire there?? Have uplugged and replugged crankshaft sensor and others? Battery is fully charged, It did this once before a few days and a neighbor screwed around with the fuses and it seemed to override the system because after that the car started right up. This is actually my lanldlord vehicle. Unfortunately he speaks very poor english due to a heart attack and it is very difficult to communicate with him. I have made sure not to flood it by excessively trying to start it. Im certainly no mechanic but have learned alot about vehicles and done much of my own work on my Dodge ram, unfortunately everything I have tried is not workling, I have even attempted to clean the sensors! I smell fuel when I attempt to start it so Im hesitant to say its not getting gas. The owner is not in a position to pay hefty labor costs to have this fixed so Im desperately trying to fix it myself! Any help would be so appreciated, I do not believe this is something major as It appears to be getting fuel and all power is working? Please help

Okay, so i have a few more questions for a tech, i was told that if i replace the transmission control module, it should clear the 0733 code which says that gear 3 is incorrect ratio. Is this true? If so, i was quoted that the transmission control module would cost me $370.00, is this also true? Is there anyway to find a transmission control module any cheaper than that?

I replaced both CV shafts after passing a yearly state inspection and bypassed the air conditioning compressor due to a destroyed clutch (doing later). After I finnished the (LONG TERM PROBLEM APPARENTLY COMMON)car was stuck in park but I could start it. Went on vacation for two weeks and now the starter will not turn at all with no sounds at all. The lights all work and the heater fan, the battery checks ok as does the starter per Advance Auto testing. I disconnected the cable from the shifter to the trans and the shifter works fine, the brake interlock now works again the the key interlock allows moving the key to start. The shift cable does not appear to want to move though I did not touch this in the engine compartment. The Haynes repair manual is silent on this.
