We are in the car, but the damn key will not start car also, can't sift gears (automatic)
Kia Mechanic: EricFromCT, Technician replied 3 years ago
Ok. Is this push button start? Are all the electrical components coming on when you turn the key on? Such as the lights on the dash or the headlights, radio etc..
