My kia optima 2012 stopped running in the middle of me driving it. IT TURN BUT WONT START. MAKING CLICKING NOISE. the battery light came on and said key undetected. so my mechanic came, and i ended replacing a battery and starter because whatever is going on fried the old ones. after that my car wouldnt even turn anymore. lights come on and nothing. i have it towed to kia dealership now, I HAVE EXTENDED WARRANTY FOR POWER TRAIN. WHAT COULD THIS BE.?
2012 KIA OPTIMA SHUT OFF WHILE DRIVING. WONT TURN OR START
AFTER CLICKING NOISE!!
took to dealer, and they said the motor is locked. no further information at this time. i hope its not from low oil because i never any indication that it was even low let alone emptyh. but last i checked it was oil in it just very little.
Hi brandy can you Facebook msg me please. If you got this problem fixed. Exact same thing happened to me 2 weeks ago.
Ashtynleigh333 what exactly did your vehicle do?
@ashtynleigh333 why don’t you tell us what’s wrong so other people who have this problem will know also?
I have a 2016 Kia Optima my steering wheel locked on my and my key is turning over but it won’t start. Everything in my car is coming on so it has power,but it’s not even making a ticking noise when I turn the key. I had it towed last night to the dealership.
I have a 2013 Kia optima .when I drive for about 15 minutes and shut the car off the car makes a clicking sound what could that be.

If your car was made I believe in Arizona your motor is under recall. Same thing happened to us. Ours was covered because it came from the plant that messed up the motors.
I have a 2011 kia Optima sxturbo. Same thing moter just shut off while driving. The moter siezed had to tow it to Kia and have them put a new motor in it. It was covered under Warranty but took like 30days to get my car back. A month later I realized the Ac wasnt working just neutral air. They said it had a bad connection and said i was good. Now that its hot outside I notice my Ac isnt working at all just hot air. So they wanted $200 to test the Ac system to tell me the highe side of the Discharge line is leaking and it will be another $650
CORRECTION: moter was under a reacall Because the factory left metal fragments in the bottom of the motor and it retained the oil from lubricating the engine. But the entire time I was checking the oil and it would always read full and looked clean.
MY 2012 SHUT OFF IN THE MIDDLE OF DRIVING IT THIS MORNING. MY BATTERY IS WORKING, ALL OF THE ELECTRICAL IS WORKING... ITS TRYING TO TURN OVER BUT ISNT WORKING. THE AAA GUY COULDNT EVEN JUMP IT. UGGGGHHHH HELP...... I ONLY HAVE 57,000 ON IT. BY THE LOOKS OF IT IM NOT THE ONLY ONE.... WHERE DO I START??

2015 Kia optima has full recall for engine failure, just found out.
CALL YOUR KIA DEALER! It would've been nice to have been alerted about this, prior.
My 2012 optima was under the recall for the motor. The motor spun a bearing and the dealership replaced the motor. They took the whole front end off the car to do the work. Now hood, fender, bumper, and headlights are out of alignment. The car is also losing power and shutting off while driving. My car has been at the dealership for more than a month, and I will not accept it back until all of the work is done and my car is back to the way it was when it was taken to them...they have given me a 2020 kia soul to drive. Check for the recall before replacing your motor. My car was full of oil and had never had any problems before this.
