I'm considering purchasing a 2004 kia Rio with 120K on it. I'm told by the driver, the car was driving along and died. It was towed to a shop, They charged the battery and say the alternator went out. Now the auto trans doesn't work ! What could be the problem, If the transmission was working before the alternator went out? Is this a common problem with this model? Has the computer or a sensor been damaged by running the car untill the battery ran completly out of voltage? I think the car has a lot of life left in it, but need a direction to go on this before I buy it. Got any idea's? The seller is open to me checking it over or having another shop of my choice scan it before I purchase it. Thanks Neal
have the same problem?
