Kia Troubleshooting Questions? Ask a Mechanic
Hi. I understand the car does not actually start up and run. But does the engine sound like it is turning over and is trying to start and run?
It would most likely be the starter. To verify, you could have someone tap on it with a hammer while trying to start it. Or the preferred method of using a test light and checking for power to the starter on the small wire, when trying to start it.
You are welcome. Thank you and have a great Holiday!
