2004 Kia Sorento LX 6 Cyl 3.5L
has new battery but wont start
battery and the brake idiot lights are on, then afeter a while shut off, then come back on. hesitated to start, so replaced the battery..started one time, now wont start again
In almost all cases, if the battery light is illuminated with the engine running, the alternator is junk. There are some exceptions but few. The light cannot be on with the engine running. When the light is on it means the alternator is not charging the battery.
