My car wont start it shows a car with a key people keep tellin me its Anti theft but I can't seem to fix the problem
Problem: When starting car, it will crank, but not start. I would have to wait 1 to 3 minutes, try it several times, wait a while, then it usually starts within 5 minutes. Difficulty in Starting car would be few and far between around 50,000 miles or sooner, hesitating to start up immediately perhaps 3 to 4 times a year. Eventually, hesitation in starting began to occur more frequently, but would never happen when at repair shop. Car now has over 90,000+ miles and starting will be difficult several times a week, then would start fine for a month or two, then start back hesitating.

runs great, suddenly won't turn over for know reason. very intermittent, sometimes months apart. happened 3 times last summer when i was driving short distances and turning it on and off a lot.

My car runs fine for months and months then will not start, lights work, radio all electronics work but intermittently when the key is turned the car will not start. I wait thirty seconds try it sometimes that works and sometimes I have to wait longer before starting, will start on and off for a week or two then will start every time for months and months. This has been happening since 2009 i now have over a 100,000 miles runs great but just sometimes wont start, I have had every idiot kia service tech tell me it is the battery, There is not one Technician over 7 years that could figure this out, I now believe these people are right and will get my ant-theft module changed. I hope it works.
