Kia Troubleshooting Questions? Ask a Mechanic
does it do anything click? crank?
usually its under the drivers dash ...does the starter engage?
have you tried a jump start or charging the battery?
have you tried it in neutral?
Do you have power at both the orange wire and black cable on the starter with a helper holding the key in the crank position?
Standing by for further help!
Next put a socket and large ratchet or breaker bar on the crank shaft pully bolt and see if you can turn the engine all the way around by hand.
I"m sorry but I'm not sure of the pully bolt right now and don't have an example in front of me. Basically we're here with our diagnosis. If you have power at both of those wires during crank, then either something mechanically is keeping your engine from turning. Possibly a locked up puller or pump, or a/c compressor. Or the more likely answer is that you have a bad starter.
If you can't find out how to get it to turn because of tool limitations I would take the starter to a local parts store and ask them to test it for you! Good luck!
Just dropping by to see if you were able to make any progress on your no-start situation!
