Kia Troubleshooting Questions? Ask a Mechanic
does the car have power. can you tap the stop start button two times without depressing the brake pedal and tell me what happens? You should have radio on and all accessories after you tap it two times.
so the brake pedal feels stiff? There is a fob holder inside the glovebox have you attempted sticking the smart key fob in there and then attempting to start the vehicle?
when you push the start button while on the brake it does nothing? no sound or click under the hood no dimming of dash lights? by trying the fob do you mean you inserted into the slot inside the glovebox or you tried to remote start it?
tries to turn over so it does crank normally or just clicks?
good for you glad to hear. were the wheels turned at all when the vehicle was shut off last? It may have locked the steering wheel like the old key style cars do when you turn the wheel a bit after removing the key.
If it does it again I would suggest maybe a brake switch being replaced, if it acts up again do the two tap on the key and hit the brake pedal to verify the brake lights work and make sure the shifter is fully in park. Good for you glad you figured it out.
