Totally no power

Asked by May 10, 2016 at 03:28 PM about the 2011 Kia Sorento EX V6

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The car accesories were left on, for 1 day, the battery died
out completely even on several jump starts. Have to
replace the battery for new one. After installing, no sign of
power/ electricity.... I was thinking the one who jump start
blew the main fuse..Is there any main fuse for this car, that
control the whole power of the car?

There is a main fuse for the car and this should be checked, I looked but can't where it's located in the car...

Check the main power distribution box in the engine compartment. There is another concern here, if you totally lost all power then it is a good possibility the body control module has totally shut down, so if the mains are good then the dealer will have to reflash the system to match the vehicles VIN.

Thanks so much guys, took me awhile to reply, your replies went to my junk file folder. Have to dig out, but anyways, appreciate all your concerns. Have to bring the car to the dealer's service center...warranty is still good..

the car is having trouble going up hill. the check engine light is also on. it goes on and off. also the car starts runing hard when you turn on the a/c and heater.


Get the codes set when the check engine light came on and see where it leads, if you need help diagnosing those codes just repost them back here and someone will help you get your vehicle up and running again.
