I own a Kia Sorrento LX 2012. I live in Quebec where we have different temperatures. When I bought my car in November 2011 I had the dealer install a remote control. Last summer while my car was on warranty I brought it to the dealer because it didn't start all the time with the remote control. The dealer kept it two days and didn't find what the problem was so he sold me a battery for the remote control. At first it started well but since two weeks it does it again and not only with the remote control. Sometimes when I put the key in ignition everything lights up in the dash as usual and I hear the battery trying to have it start but it doesn't. Yesterday, it took me almost 10 minutes in the mall parking to have it start.This problem is intermittent so difficult to troubleshoot. Can you help me? Thank you.

So the engine/starter is cranking, but it doesn't turn over? Check the fuel pressure.
