Your Kia should start and run right, like the day you drove it home from the dealer. Your OEM ignition helps make sure it can. Turn your key in its lock cylinder. You'll see just how an ignition works.
Put simply, your ignition switch triggers; four main components -- your car battery, a starter motor, an ignition coil, and a starter solenoid -- work together to send electricity, a "spark," to your spark plugs, on top of your engine cylinder head.
The plugs' leads capture the current, using it to ignite the oxygen and fuel in your engine. As the mixture burns, it releases power. Your vehicle starts and, with some help from its alternator, it keeps on running normally, the way it should.
Trouble starting, however, usually means your ignition is going bad. If you have a code reader, plug it in -- do a full inspection. More importantly, look for a few specific symptoms of ignition problems.
Signs of a Bad Ignition
- Flickering dashboard lights
- A key that won't turn
- Total inability to start
