2014 Kia Soul won't start

Asked by Jul 25, 2017 at 04:53 PM about the 2014 Kia Soul Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2014 Kia Soul won't start every now and then. All the lights on dash
come on but no crank sound. Took it to Dealer today. So far they haven't
found the problem. After reading several posts on here about this happening
to others. I'm sure the Dealer won't find the problem the first time and so
many trip back to them will start. I really hate this because I love my car. But
may have to trade for something else soon.

It could also be the starter or the alternator? or even possibly something having to do with electrical issues...

Same problem with my 2012 Kia Soul. I had the camshaft sensor replaced but am still having intermittent problems with it 3 weeks later. After scanning these forums, I have narrowed it down to these possibilities: - the antenna sensor coil is faulty and needs replacing - the crank and camshaft position sensors are out of synch - problems with the CVVT (the variable valve timing system) Also read that the code "P0011" is not a CPS fault, but a CVVT issue, so that is likely it. Found this thread, maybe it will help: https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/hyundai-kia-engine-performance- common-cvvt-system-faults-juarez

My friends of Kia Souls, I, or rather my recovery driver has solved the problem!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My 2013, Soul has been having intermittent starting problems, as described, for the last 3 days it's been sat outside my house, until this morning, my recovery driver, moved the drivers mat back, and it started first time!!!!!!!!!! Apparently the mat worms it,s way forward, and stops the clutch pedal being fully depressed, which you MUST DO to start, he simply moved it back, PROBLEM SOLVED, no don,t thank me, thank my recovery man!!!!
