Why would a KIA Rio just decided to shut off in the middle of driving and it not start back up again?
Answer . Probably the alternator.. If the engine turns over when you try to start it I suspect a broken timing belt.. i had similar prob in an 04 rio, turned out to be a …fault with a connection to the engine fuse block
starter relay check that... If you can jump the starter motor directly and get the engine to fire up this tells us the starter and battery and engine management systems are …intact. This leaves us with a possible bad ignition switch, or the mechanical key tumbler is NOT allowing ignition switch to reach full travel - OR - you can have faulty/loose/corroded wiring between ignition switch, to starter relay, the relay may be bad, or wiring from relay to starter solenoid and so on. Easiest test would be testing, while cranking, using a DMM (digital multimeter) set to D/C volts scale - the voltage at starter solenoid. You hear a click in dash so likely the relay is accepting signal from Ig Switch. So how many volts get to starter solenoid? If you get about battery voltage when cranking, you have a faulty starter solenoid. So then you'd replace the starter/solenoid assembly. If you get low voltage, say battery is at about 12.4V at rest and solenoid sees only 8.6V "without" engine cranking, you've got a bad relay or wiring. Let me know if you need more? :) Answer before you call a mechanic check all fuses my Kia did the same to me and the fuse looked ok if your not sure about a fuse change it it would be alot cheaper than calling one of them in Answer The information that you've given is inadequate to diagnose the problem. You don't say if the starter actually turns, turns slowly, just clicks once, clicks a few times or does nothing. There are an awful lot of possibilities. Lights and rasio don't prove alot other than there's minimal juice in the battery. Posiibilities? Basically everything! If its still not going try and get some more info together, however - recommend taking it to a mechanic. Had this problem myself... the fuel pump fuse was blown.
Your glow plug light flashes occasionally whilst driving and you lose all power you switch off ignition and it starts okay What is wrong?
Answer . If you are not getting fuel that light will flash. It's probably overheating without the fuel to cool it. When you start out, after the car sits, all the crap in t…he tank will settle back out of the filter. Then, when you start the car and drive, the filter will slowly get clogged, again. This is good, because that junk is not going to your injectors or carburetor. But it's also bad, because it could cause an accident on the highway!! Fix it!. I suppose you have a diesel?. Change the fuel filters. Cars, nowadays, have a very high-micron filtering capacity and some will not even let sugar through. With this trashy gas and fuel they're selling, today, you cannot run forever on an original filter.. Change em!!. !!!PLEASE CLICK DISCUSSION TO VIEW OTHER ANSWERS!!!.
Why does a 1996 Kia Sportage with no prior heating problem run hot and hesitate to start or tries to turn over but does not when shut off after changing the timing belt and clutch fan?
Answer . check the water pump. I had the same problem.
Check the gas cap. I know this sounds too simple to be true, but unless you tightented it right the last time you were at the pump this could be it. My 2002 optima just had th…ese exact same symptoms. We thought there was water in the tank and when we went to add dry gas we saw the warning on the cap...make sure cap clicks three times or it is not sealed. If not, air gets in and causes these problems. Good luck!
Why a 2003 Monte Carlo wouldn't start or even turn over after drivingbut dash lights radio and gauges flickered on and off?
When my 2003 Monte did that it was a bad connection to the battery. It got just enough power to think it was being stolen and my key fob stopped working. Once I cleaned up the… battery contacts it was fine.
Why does a car lose power and shuts off has no warning lights showing this has also happened when driving but it will start again?
Check the battery connectios as well as the ground on the coil. Sounds like you are losing you ground due to a bad battery cable or corroded connection at the battery.. Check… the battery connections as well as the ground on the coil. Sounds like you are losing your ground due to a bad battery cable or corroded connection at the battery.
To remove the dash to get to the radio from a 2005 Kia Optima,begin by prying around the edge of the trim around the gearshifter. Then, remove the screws from the bottom of th…e dash andpry the trim away from the radio area. This will expose the radiobezel.
the problem is the 2 relays ,main engine and fuel pump relays. they work together so if one arcs it shuts off the other. Always replace BOTH run about $16.50 ea at Kia dealer.…
How do you start a 2004 Yamaha warrior when the neutral light does not shine and the starter does not turn or make any noise After i shut it off and tried to start again the light wouldn't light up?
If you have a dead battery and stator, it won't run, but if your stator is still good, you can run it with out the battery. There are really two ways to start it, you can pu…t it in second and literaly throw it (pick up the back about chest high and throw as hard as you can) or put it in Third, push it as fast as you can, jump on the back and pop the clutch. my starter died the last month and this is how i started mine.
Before you do what I did when the same thing happened to me was go out and buy a 400 dollar fuel pump. I would start by checking the timing belt.
check fuel pump or ignition system

You were driving and your car tried to die like you were running out of gas you pulled over and went to start it again and it would turn over but not start just keeps cranking?
Was there gas in the gas tank? How old is your car? Sometimes your fuel filter gets clogged up. Sometimes your carburetor gets clogged up. Sometimes your fuel injectors get cl…ogged up. With alcohol in the gasoline, you seldom have water in your gas tank because the alcohol mixes it with the gasoline so it no longer causes a problem. Is the gas cap tight on your gas tank. If it is not tight, that can cause the problem you describe. If your gas tank can not hold pressure, your car can act like it is out of gas. It is easiest to check your gas cap. Then replace your filter. Then clean out your gas line. If it still does it, hook it up to a computer. You could have computer problems. Modern cars have a number of computers. Electronics go bad. People make good money fixing them. Do everything else first.

2002 cavalier Z24 just shuts off while im driving and will start again by itself or you will have to turn it over?
Have someone check your fuel pump pressure,if you lose fuel pressure while driving,and then it comes back that would explain why it seems to start by itself.

What if you were driving your car stopped at a stop sign then your car shut down and would not start again then you replaced the fuze and it tries to start but wont turn over?
Replace the battery or the carbarreta
