I need a lot more information from you to help. There are a number of unknown potential reasons the battery and charging system are still not working. More than likely the new parts are ok but you can not assume that they are. Suspect everything. Do you have any test equipment to check the battery and charging system state? I need you to charge the battery back to 100 percent. We don't know if there is a short or parasitic draw so disconnect the battery before charging. After the battery is charged *BE CAREFUL*. Have safety glasses and water readily available if the battery explodes. You need to quickly wash the acid off your body. Note: Immediately wash your clothing or just throw them away. Battery acid will ruin clothing if the acid isn't diluted soon. I'm a master mechanic. In my life so far I have had two defective batteries explode in my face. Thank GOD I was wearing the safety glasses. Now load test battery. If not possible, hold off and temporarily connect the battery terminals. Connect the positive side first then momentarily connect the negative side. Was there a big blueish wight ark? If so, remove the terminal for a breif second and reconnect the ground again. Did it have the same big large ark or was it mild or tiny this time? If the spark was mild install both battery terminals and tighten. Start the car verify that the alternator is charging. What is it charging at at idle? At 1500 RPMS? What is it charging at with the heater on (At high speed) and high beams are on too. The alternator should support the system between 13.5 to 14.5 volts. Run your tests, write down your results and let me know if you are all set or need more help. Good luck.

You may need to send the car in for diagnostics. I don't no what you have for tools but there are a few things you can try before sending it in. On the face of the radeo, below the word VOLUME. You will see a small hole. With the radio on briefly and gently use a paperclip or pen to depress the recessed button. The radio will power down for 30 seconds, just wait. If that doesn't work you can check the shunt fuse and 30amp amp fuse. If still no sound, try disconnecting the battery for 5 minutes. After that more technical diagnostics is needed to see if it is related to wiring, radio or the amp.

Possibly. But nobody here is going to post information on FixYa about how to steal cars. If it is your Kia, contact your local Kia dealer for support.

i don't know. here in Canada mine was below half and car
was not warm enough in winter. i put a new thermostat in
myself. now i have lots of heat and temperature is about
85 to 90 degrees celsius or about 3/4 on the gauge.
changing was a bit messy with having to catch antifreeze
etc. call parts store for price of thermostat. next ask a
few mechanics or places for an estimate. finally, you
make your choice. some engines are not easy to change.

I think you have little choice but to try and remove the steering/ignition lock barrel - most are removable in position 1.

Unfortunately it would mean removing the column shroud and finding the release hole and poking a thick piece of wire into it. Once removed everything can be realigned and refitted. Sorry can't think of anything simpler.
