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.?

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.
