KIA SHUMA BATTERY PROBLEM

2000 Kia Shuma • 2,006,000 miles

Well starting does not start had rapid clicking noise now no rapid clicking noise just the lights in dash appear. May be the low voltage battery or alternator not charging. Its in everyday use rolling car in first gear or reverse depending on park direction kick starting and everything going fine. If car switches off have to kick start again. Is it the starter or battery or ignition or alternator? Would like to donate with some info on how too, your info is much appreciated. Thanks for your help. Your website is awesome! Kind regards

It sounds more like a starter failure if you kick start it.

Have the battery and alternator tested to be sure they are not at fault. Check the voltage at the battery with the engine running. It should be 14 to 14.5 volts
