ive noticed small blinking red light at the top of dashboard by windscreen. it wasn't there before. what is it for? should I be worried? its kia picanto 2013 but there is no choice for picanto on next page.
when I turned the ignition off while still in reverse car did violent jerking,but has operated normal sense.
I'm told the brake sensor could be the problem. I had triple a on the way until someone at the gas station where I was stalled. a kia mechanic got it started right up like nothing was wrong. he said kia brake sensor will do that.
car is running warm, all fluids are full, when should fan turn on as after 10min of running it has not turned 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.
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
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.
I replace the fog lights one when out then before I can get home the other fog light went out.
i am knot suire
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?!
re: 2013 Kia Optima LX. Radio will not turn on. Trunk will not open using either the key fob or the release inside the car. I turned the car on. I could then open the trunk with the inside release button, but the radio still does not work. Trunk does not open when the car is not running. This just started happening today.
I already had about a 1/4 tank of regular gas in my car, but I went to add another $20 worth of gas. Not really paying attention I ended up putting diesel in the tank, and didn't realize it until I drove for about 8 miles then the car started jerking. How much should it cost me to have this repaired?
Happened out of blue. Car was damaged in front 3 months prior but ran fine w no prblms. At Kia Dealer for 2 weeks wo a word. Now, call and tell me it's because of damage to wire harness I caused (under warranty if not my fault) Seems shady. Think they can't figure out so blaming me. Keep seeing immobilizer prblms on forums. Think that's what it is. I don't know what to do. Case of woman being taken advantage of...don't know enough, but have been researching prblm enough to know I'm not only one. PLEASE HELP ASAP
