It now has a little over 50k miles. I push the button and it clicks rapidly like its a battery voltage issue but it reads 12. Definitely are great buy, the best buy! I am a single mother and have no family left and no one to help me. Review the basics below to compare what's included across various Kia Optima trim levels and model years. Will follow up if does not repeat a couple weeks after repair being done next week, Jeff answered about a year ago A couple of things can cause this.
First check the battery, fuses and the connections. The Hybrid model improves on this already-impressive fuel economy rating. Overall I am very pleased with my Kia Optima. I am going to take it in again. Under warranty and will see if this does the trick. Compared to other mid-size sedans, the Kia Optima stands out for several reasons. Had my Optima over 3 years now and I'm still loving it! Each engine choice is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission featuring Sportmatic ® clutchless shifting.
Replaced battery at AutoZone since still under warranty on Sunday. It is large enough to seat 4 comfortably, but has a lot of pick up and maneuvers very well. Apparently, they're seeing this a lot. The Gear shift trick hasn't worked yet. I would definitely recommend it.
I wiggle the shift lever etc as described in other posts. It made a clicking sound when starting a few times weeks before not starting at all. I hope Kia covers it. The only reason I got it started was from reading these posts! Showcasing Kia's more Euro-influenced design direction, the Optima has styling that's more exciting than that of other mid-size sedans. Overall I am very pleased with my Kia Optima. When I wiggle the shifter, it starts every time. Replacing the battery in your Optima involves removing the terminals.
Although some batteries last much longer, most batteries begin breaking down chemically after four years, so you could experience dimmer headlights and other negative effects before you have a dead battery in your Optima that you need to replace. All lights would come on but it wouldn't start. You don't need to fear cold weather with AutoZone batteries that feature higher cold cranking amps for easier starting in low temperatures. All the lights come on and the dinger chimes when i turn the key on, but it will not crank over. I bought my Son a Soul and my daughter a Forte. The fix was simple - no charge - and it drives straight as a arrow now.
I tried and tried many times. Could put a couple of rock in front of the wheels. Honestly, I was about to buy an Audi until I actually sat in and test drove this car. Could it be the starter relay? When I tried starting it the last few days after putting in a new battery in the key fob the lights on the dashboard came on; however, it wouldn't start. When paired with a phone using Bluetooth, the unit constantly wants to download contacts, even though I've turned this mode off. I swear that someone is able to start flipping switches somewhere with a computer to cause you problems.
I will ask for a new shifter assembly under the warranty if the problem continues. Other than that it is a great car. Ever since my car has started every time. Now the starting issue is fixed. Warranty consists of 3 years free replacement. When I bought a hybrid I often wondered if it was a good car for commuting long distances.
I took the car to the dealer and they said that although the battery was not dead, the voltage or cranking amps were not enough to start the car. The wondering was so bad as we passed the assembly factory I wanted to take it back and leave it but it was Sunday. Those that criticize it probably wouldn't be happy with any car. Again today I went to start it and same thing. Whether you prefer to shop online or in-store, AutoZone provides the right products at the right prices.
