2008 Kia Soranto periodic problem- turn key,no start

turn key no start. Try many times, dash lights come on as normally. I go to "fuse/relay box" unplug relay and push back in, juggle all of them, try start sometimes still nothing then go back to "box" and repeat and seems to help and starts. Same problem for about 2 years. Took it to Kia Dealer , they could find nothing wrong. Problem still continues every few days. Problem?? How to repair?

Assuming you are jiggling the fuse box in the cabin. I am thinking it may be your TCCS fuse. This controls 3 separate entities on your vehicle, one of them in particular. TCS - Traction control = won't cause a no start.

ESC- Electronic spark control = Can cause a no start issue if it is faulty.

Immobiliser = Can shut you out of vehicle control. However if Immo is bad vehicle will sometimes start then immediately stop, then fail restart.

Get your vehicle scanned, test and replace that fuse. #14, 20 Amp.

Check every fuse in your cabin fuse box and under bonnet/hood fuse box. Replace all faulty or suspect ones. With your vehicle running (eventually) touch test all your relays, if they are abnormally hot. Change them out as they are faulty. (This is a backyard method without proper diagnostic equipment.) Mark them with an X if they are faulty then move on to the next one. Later when you have checked them all, and turned off the engine. You know which ones to swap out.

Also, had problem with my A/C in addition to the starting problem. Took it in to Canadian Tire Auto Repair in Edmonton , Alberta. Turned out to be electrical problem. Mechanic traced control wire to connector and removed connector and cleaned contacts and reinstalled.

He then went and cleaned all the other "contacts" at the box. He solved all my electrical problems I was having !!!. Even KIA dealer could not solve my problem! Did great job for me. Get "contacts" cleaned and hopefully will solve your problem. Runs like a charm now!!

Its nice when you know all the items that do not work as you can back trace these items on a schematic and narrow down your problem area. If the car cranks the starter but will not start on a vehicle of today, its not just as simple as spark, gas and compression which are the big 3 from the old days, not you have timing to the computer for spark and fuel injection, immobilizer will not allow a start and a host of electrical problems that only you can check for power to many many items all over your vehicle.

Can you prove that fuel is getting into the cylinders, usually the spark plugs are wet with gas, can you listen to the fuel injectors for clicking with a long screwdriver touching an injector and the handle up against your ear? Do you know how to properly test for a strong spark, weak spark not good enough outside of the cylinder?
