Question about 2005 Kia Rio
Sometimes when driving the lights, radio and a/c will turn off; car won't re-start and gives that 'clicking' sound of a dead battery. Jumpping it off will get it to start, but then the above happens again. AutoZone just keeps advising it's a bad battery or battery cell. Any ideas?

I once had a chvy lumina car that had a similar problem. I ended up replacing the alternator that was not charging up the battery. The battery was replaced first and then the alternator. In addition, the electronic motherboard was replaced underneath the coil pack. I did all the work myself. No more electronic problems. If they did a diagnostic test on your car and it showed a bad battery then the battery should be tested by Autozone. Go to Oreilly's too for test.

You may need a starter. My 99 Kia would get me places and would refuse to start. Someone hit the starter with a wrench and it started right up. I had to hit the starter to get my Kia to start until I replaced it.
Hope this helps.

My 2004 Kia Rio just started losing compression and died on me. I tried starting it and it only clicks. I checked the battery cables and they are not corroded and very tight. Could it be the battery or the alternator not charging the battery? there is no water in the oil and it's not the water pump.
