My 2013 Kia Optima won't start, all of a sudden......

Asked by Nov 15, 2015 at 09:00 AM about the 2013 Kia Optima EX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

a couple weeks ago, after a full days work, I would start my car and right after it  would very briefly "chug a lug" for a split second but then be fine.  it was even fine in the mornings after sitting all night. However, yesterday, I was vacuuming inside and head my radio on for probably 30 minutes, and went to start afterwards and it won't start.  it's a push button. could it be my battery even if the lights will turn on inside the car?  I should reiterate, my car started fine 30 minutes earlier to move it to where I wanted to vacuum it, then 30 minutes later, won't start at all.  thank you

I should have added, all lights and radio work, so does that completely rule out battery? Just seems odd that it started fine 30 minutes earlier, drove it all morning, then after 30 minutes of having radio ONLY on, I went to start and nothing. thx
