Car won't start, why.?


Asked by Aug 05, 2016 at 10:02 AM about the 2010 Kia Soul 4u

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

i have a 2010 Kia Soul.  I've been to the dealership 3 times and and they still
can't find the problem.  This morning we are taking it in again.
Problem?  Every now and then I get in the car put key into ignition and it
won't turn over.  It makes an attempt to turn over, I hear a bit of grrrr grrrr but
no starting.  I try again and sometimes nothing and sometimes it starts.  If
nothing again then I wait 10 or 20 minutes and then it will start.  I am so
frustrated becomes the last time it left me stranded after a night shift and the
next day when I got a tow truck it started.  Looking at my records I have it
looked at approximately once a year every June or July.  Why is this
happening and what is it?

Is it getting fuel?


crank it over and if it wont start turn the key off and put the petal to the floor and try to start it. It could be a sensor.


or there is also a antenna coil faulty in some of them and it's an interlock with the key and is a safety feature which could cause the car to start on and off.

Locate a competent electrical tech, Post the name of this Hyundai and Kia Dealer so people can avoid them too. I see all the guessing, with the factory scan tool (GDS) or new (G-Scan 2) this is minutes worth of diagnostic work to locate the issue exactly! A dealer as this in my area is Blacklisted quickly people aren't so forgiving! come back 3 time heads roll! LOSING. were not talking Shady's corner repair.
