I have a 2009 KIA SPECTRA LX (manual transmission).
I start by noting that the vehicle has three different behaviors, and all 3 are intermittent. They did not appear at the same time, but one after another, week after week. Here are the 3 behaviors of the vehicle in order of appearance:
1- When I turn the key to start, the engine cranks, but does not start. After a few attempts, it starts up.
2-When I turn the key to start, the engine starts, but stops immediately. After that, it takes a few tries before it starts (as with the 1st behavior)
3- When I turn the key to start, nothing happens. All the lights stay on on the dashboard, but nothing happens. Exactly as if I were trying to start without pressing the clutch pedal. I have checked the clutch pedal sensor with a multimeter, and it works fine.
There is a 4th behavior that just appeared (last night), but that has nothing to do with starting system
, but maybe you can find a link there:
4- So yesterday at night, the vehicle locked the doors constantly, honking the horn, as we kept pressing the lock button on the remote control.
Other than that, once the engine started, the vehicle was fine, and I didn’t notice anything abnormal.
The battery and the candles have recently been changed. I also changed the camshaft position sensor (It didn’t change anything). There is a remote starter installed for 2 years, and which is working properly.
Need help please. Sorry for the english mistakes, I am French speaker. Thank you in advance.
