While test driving a 2013 Kia Rio the instrument panel lit up. With the ABS light, brake light, traction control, air bag lights all lit. We also lost power steering. Any fix for this?

Asked by Feb 25, 2016 at 01:53 PM about the 2013 Kia Rio EX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

We need to know if this is a problem that can be fixed.  When we got it back to
the dealer the car was running fine.  They couldn't find any history of error
codes.  Suggestions?

There is an error inside the main brain of the computer. the dealer must of temporarily reset it. did it have a clean title when bought?

We haven't purchased it yet. We were test driving it. They told us that when they started it to check it that the car was running fine. It is at a Kia dealer right now being looked at. This is my daughter's first car and so I don't want her to buy it if this is a known problem that will cost her money in the future.
