Car won't start

Asked by Jun 08, 2014 at 03:05 PM about the 2009 Kia Rio LX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car won't start. Starts sometimes like normal. Then it won't between stops. Can jump
it and it starts. Had the battery and alternator checked and they test good. But when it
won't start it slightly turns over then click click click.

if it is an electrical problem- one way to check is hose down your engine- any bad connections will then be ok and should start first time--i carry a gardening can in my car just for these occasions!

Check your neg. wire, mine looked ok but put a jumper to ground and it fired right up
