2000 Kia Sportage 4 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 129000 miles
We started having trouble with battery, had to jump it to start it after setting for more than a couple of hours. Went to the store and car would not shut off even with the key out. Drove it back home and still would not shut off. Pulled the fuse for the main computer and car shut off. Put the fuse back in and the car would not start at all. Nothing
Took the battery to the parts store and it was dead. Bought a new battery and put it in and car still will not start. We have power and lights and dings. But nothing when we turn the key
then when we take the key out it starts clicking and all the dash lights come on. We have to disconnect the battery to get this to stop. It dose not start this until we connect the battery and turn the key and take it out.
One more note to concider is there is an after market security system on the car with remote start
it is a viper 550. We haven't used the remote start in over 5 yrs. And we stopped using the security system because the doors locks sometimes stick
Please help us
