My battery is good when the weather is warm, the car wouldnt start yesterday and while getting a jump saw sparks and now there is nothing. All the lights work but no motor - starter?

Asked by Mar 11, 2015 at 12:50 PM about the 2009 Kia Rio Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

All the lights work but no motor - starter? I will have the battery checked but am curious if anyone has actually found an answer to their vehicles not starting all of a sudden? It's a standard transmission and I have had absolutely no problems with this car at all. Nothing. I love this baby!

Heat and cold are the enemies of batteries, if a battery is going to fail it will when one of those is present, it is not something new it is just the way it is, typical life of a battery is 3 to 5 years, less if they are subjected to continual drain downs.
