2009 Kia Spectra LX electrical issues

Asked by Mar 31, 2015 at 06:28 PM about the 2009 Kia Spectra LX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2009 Kia Spectra LX. I replaced the battery because it wouldn't start (lights would
come on, radio, etc, but car would make clicking sound repeatedly). After the battery was
replaced the radio, cabin light, and clock will not come on. I replaced a 120amp blown
fuse and have checked all others that I can check under the hood and below the steering
wheel. Alternator was checked out and is good.  Any ideas?

Check all connections from battery to starter. Sometimes it could be just a bad ground
