Did you load test the battery? If it has the original battery in it it's time for a new one. Original equipment batteries are only rated for 3 years. HTH. -Jim

Hi, im having the same problem with my kia, the battery is fine but it wont start, after a few attempts the engine will turnover but it still wont start. I can start by popping the clutch (push start). Did you find a fix?
