Thermostat is stuck in the open position. Replace the defective thermostat with a new one.

Hi Anonymous, I want to help you with your question, but I need more information from you. Can you please add details in the comment box? Do you hear any grinding noise comming from the starter? Any clicking sounds? How old is the battery? Is the battery dead? Have you had the battery checked out? How about the heavy cables going to the starter? How about the ground wire comming from the battery? How about the ignition switch? How about the safety neutral switch? There could be many different things that will make your car not start, You can try some of the things that I have suggester but you need to be more specific in order for anyone to try and help you.

Good luck,

Cd players do get quite warm due to the load and heat energy generated by the system, but yours seems abnormally hot.
You were right to turn it off for safety. It could be an expensive fry up.
My suggestion is to trawl the Kia owners forums on the www to see if the fault is common. Then ask around for an honest in car system repairer and take along a guy that looks like a quarterback to avoid any bull. If you have a friend who knows how to remove cd players(legitimally) and could cobble it up to a battery on a bench you could get some idea of how hot it gets and this may help your local friendly agent with the problem.
Lastly, in europe KIA's give several years warranty. Why are you not going to your dealer with a big stick?

You just have to find a really good front wend tech and tell him in person what it is doing and then ride with them after the repair.
