2004 kia sorento will not start

Asked by Nov 16, 2015 at 05:59 AM about the 2004 Kia Sorento LX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Car was in front end collision turned on
immediately after sounded like crap and
shut down seen the fan was getting
chewed.  Car sat for almost 3 months today
i pulled all the extra metal off the font and
the fans and radiator, bat was dead so I
tried to jump, it wanted to start and it did for
a brief moment and died out but it sounded
good now I'm thinking something is still
telling the ecu not to let the engine run. it
turned over fine I've already checked to
make sure it didn't jump time no resistance
when manually rotating motor besides
regular compression I can hear a hum
coming from fuel pump on initial turn so I
have no idea what's causing this engine not
to start

get it scanned , see what codes its throwing. may have damaged crank or cam senors..

You probably already figured this out but there is a button that needs to be pushed after a front-end Collision. It will not let the vehicle get fuel so as not to start a fire or something like that. I don't remember where it's at, Google the button that's what I did after my accident, pressed it and I was all good
