I had an 87 Bonneville that did it a few times (back in the day)... I had a bad PCM.. Luckily it was on recall and was replaced at no cost.. Chances are though, you may just have a loose battery connection. If it is not a battery and becomes a repeat problem.. Take it back to the dealer and file a warranty claim..

Several different dealers have come across the same problem and they're telling the customers that since the engine is not capturing a fault and we can't repeat it, there's nothing we can do for you. I heard Nissan is having a recall for the same problem on their cars.

Besides, the car is only 6 months old. It's had two shut downs and a misfire already. Not what I expected from KIA.

They are feeding you crap.. If you have had the car shut down on you twice, they are obligated to discover the problem. Code or no code.. Does not matter..

KIA rebooted both computers with new software (so they told me). Waiting to see if it happens again. I did notice that after reboot, the car is slow to respond to fuel.
