2000 Kia Sephia 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 123, 00 miles
i have had to replace my battery 5 times in 6 years because every time it drops below freezing my car won't start and the repairman(different ones) tell me it's my battery. I have had the charging system checked 3 times this last year and it was fine every time, but even after getting another new battery it wouldn't start when the temperature dropped this winter.
there are also a few other problems that are continuous. First, after driving around for a while then turning off my car for a few minutes to go into a store it hesitates when trying to start it back up again, but does not do this when sitting for a longer period of time, like, overnight. I have also had a new starter put in, but that did not fix it for very long. Second, I have killed three nana ipods using the cigarette charger and now my stereo (after market) doesn't work.
when I think back to when I started having this problem it was soon after I had the stereo installed at a stripmall car stereo place. Now, everytime I take it to a mechanic they want to replace some expensive part of my charging system even though when I get it checked the diagnostioc result says the charging system is fine.
have the same problem?
