Having problems with your 1999 Kia Sephia ?

My 1999 Kia Sephia just shut off while I was driving down the road

\015 As I was going down the road the engine just shut off. The lights on the dash and everything stayed on and the battery light came on normally as if i had just turned on the key without starting it. I have tried to jump it off and no luck on that either.\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 17-02-2020

Answers :


The\012engine and the automatic transmission in this vehicle are computer\012controlled and in most cases when a fault occurs a fault code is\012stored in the memory of the computer control module. There are\012exception to this, such as the Mass Airflow Meter and fuel pressure\012problems. What must be done is to have all the basic testing done\012such as a scan of the system for fault codes as well as a check with\012a live data scanner tool for engine functions that are not within\012range of normal, a trained technician is required to know what is\012correct and what isn't, then based on careful diagnostics done from\012a factory repair manual the correct part is replaced or the wiring\012repaired or the computer replaced (known as the PCM), which is very\012rarely the problem. Other basic checks must be done as well such as\012mechanical problems with the engine as well as engine state of tune\012and mileage on the engine. The transmission can have mechanical\012issues as well such as no gear engagement at all or a failed pump or\012other pressure related problems.
