Hi Pearl, I tried...

Hi Pearl, I tried staring my kia with the hood up. When it wouldn't start I realized it wouldn't start with the hood. I closed the hood, the brake is depressed and won't come back up, it doesn't matter I use the start button or the alternate key start in the console, it won't start. Just sitting there the car is making a clicking sound when I'm not trying to start it.

Mechanic's Assistant: Where exactly do you think the noise is coming from? And how long has this been going on?

It just did it when I shut the hood and tried to start it again. It shoulds like it's coming from the console.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Kia?

2011 sportage ex

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Sportage yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes myself. I've tried pushing the start button with my foot on the break and without foot on the break. using the alternate kep start, auto start. could it be the fuse for the break

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I was wondering if removing the battery cables would reset the computer?
