2002 Kia optima 2.4 Automatic
Ok so before i started working on replace the marker light, I went to start my car, and it turned over really slow then it started..
Then I noticed the AC wasnt blowing strong, and the clock, gauges etc were dim, BUT if i stepped on the gas, it would blow harder and the gauges would get brighter
I replaced the alternator probably around a year or so ago, so I dont think its that
Also the battery always dies when i park it?
Even after I charge it, to where it is at 100% it will die just being parked for a couple hours
And when driving, i've had it seem like it is bogging down and the car is about to die then it suddenly revives and runs as if normal?
I cleaned the terminals, and the battery tested good so i'm not sure what could be going wrong? I may try get a new battery
My issue is similar to these two threads:
ALSO when I tried shifting it into gear ( it is an automatic)
It was really tight, like I had to actually pull hard to get it to go into gear, as before it would easily shift into drive, reverse etc.
And it also doesn't seem to wanna go to Low gear or 1st and when you put it into park you have to play with it a little? and then it will click and settle, but then it doesnt show on the dash that it is in park
AND now, that I am done installing the new marker light, when you turn the key
NOTHING HAPPENS? It doesn't turn over, or make a clicking noise like it does when you have a dead battery
If the radio is on and you turn the key to turn it over, it will go off, like it does when you normally try to start it, but now it doesn't do anything besides that.
Please help, I just got this car back from the paint shop today and now this happens.
