We have tried everything we can think of. Dont understand why it wont stop making this nerve racking noise. The trunk open kight on dash is very very faint and if you have the interior lights set to be on when doir is open, they are so faint it looks erie. The alarm will not set with the clicker and the only way to open the trunk now is to put the key in the key hole of the trunk.
I have had this Kia for a few years with no issues. I haven't driven it in a few days. I went to start it and it turned over like the battery was dead. It started and shook some and died. Same thing happened 2 more times and stopped.
Starts and dies. Will run if throttle is held down 20 %
If I Take out screw in the lever will that mess any thing up? Can I open the hood from the outside with a screw driver?
Thank you, Charlie

cd player lights stay on after tuning off car battery drainsand cd player displays err2 cd s wont eject
It only does this when it's cold. The same thing happened to my other Amanti. Does anyone know why this might be happening? Thanks
When i set the temperature to max temperature i only get cool air
ESP off light on dashboard staying on majority of time. Steering intermittently felt as though no control. When driving high speed on curve tires did not turn with the wheel turn. Steering wheel no longer horizontally level; when turned right, the wheel remains turned to the right though tires are straight; same for left turn. Now car is inoperable as steering wheel will turn, then lock, then turn, then lock; steering column making weird knocking noise; wheels not turning properly; also knocking noise coming from under hood passenger side. Any thoughts?
I'm wanting to change the plugs. What are the best type of plugs for my money? and does this car have spark plug wires or does it have coil on plugs?
Its coming from the drivers side front wheel.
Im worried its going to ruin something i need answers to fix fast.
I switched the control module in the dash but it still doesnt heat the drivers side
