Kia Troubleshooting Questions? Ask a Mechanic
Hello, what model kia is this?
2011 is not a model. i'll opt out
HI THIS IS TRUNG . WHEN REMOVING THE BATTERY TERMINAL AND THE KEY RELEASE THIS MEAN THE RELEASE SOLENOID IN THE IGNITION LOCK CYLINDER IS SHORTING OUT .
WHAT IS THE VEHICLE MODEL . 2011 KIA ?
There is a mechanism and switches under the console it should be an easy job some times just needs cleaning and greasing.Only have gen 2 details.select N 2 screws in back of knob under small cover allow removal, and top of console will unclip .There are for bolts holding lever assembly down on to base these can be removed and linkages checked if all good there is an interlock cable goes to ignition on to a cam and this may need attention.
hi clearly my answer was saying the switch in the lock cylinder is stuck and u can try to remove and clean it . I didn't said anything about replacing the ignition lock cylinder? the chat we have still sitting on the screen ..
a lot of helping here is theory . we are not at the site to clearly see and diagnosis vehicle from online . most answer is what we encounter . I will opt out since the other mechanic ask question and clearly u don't understand .
