Customer reply replied 7 months ago
not really I am not onsite where my car is at it at my mechanic, and i am telling you what he has told me.
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I can head over there but then Ill have to spend another $20 to get someone on line and start all over again.
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
he has been trying fix it now for three days
Kia Mechanic: David Craig, Auto Mechanic replied 7 months ago

ok, well i need to know these things. if you arent getting rpms when cranking, then the cranksensor isnt telling the computer the engine is rotating and isnt telling the casm sensor to fire the coils. if the theft indicsator light isnt going out while cranking then the skis module dropped the key code
