Why does my kia optima run for 2 seconds and then die
I have problem that I just got with my car. It has been running perfectly fine with absolutely no problems and when I went to work, I started it up and it would run for 2 seconds and then die. There is no sputtering, coughing, etc, and the check engine light is on. I see that there is a sticker on the engine compartment fuse box that says the vehicle is equipped with a D.E.I. remote start system, but when I got the vehicle from the dealer, there was no key fob or anything for it. I got the car in February of this year and have been driving it with no problems, and then all of a sudden...problems. I want to make sure that I might not be overlooking something simple before I attempt to take it into the shop. Thanks for any help that the community can offer.
I had the same problem.99% sure its the camshaft positioning sensor.I looked at everything on vehicle and it came down to the sensor.mine had a small crack.replaced and runs perfect.
Most likely the camshaft position sensor or the crankshaft position sensor. I'd scan it just to see. Usually both sensors will set a DTC. If either code is set I'd recommend replacing the timing belt and balance shaft belt (Assuming it's a 2.4L 4 cylinder) with both sensors.
get the fuses and relays checked on ur optima. it looks like a recurring issue, so i might need to get ur car checked thoroughly. http://kiaoptima.org/
