Kia Sportage Problem Report

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

(7 reports)
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. -
Car will lock in "park" with engine running. You have to use the fob key to insert and release transmission from park. Then there are times when the engine will not crank over and start. One has to insert the fob into the backup slot in the console to get the engine to crank. Our local Kia dealer doesn't have a clue what to do about it. -
