06 Kia Spectra, Electrical Problems
I tried to start my 2006 Kia Spectra today and there was not enough power going thru to the physical parts to get it up and running. Naturally I thought there was something with the battery so I tried to have it jumped and it still would not start. I took it out, and walked to walmart to have it checked out there. They informed me the battery was running as it was supposed to. I got back and put the battery in the car and it managed to start. However, the clock was dim and the AC was not running like it normally does. I managed to get it to advance auto parts and there they tested the battery while it was still inside of the car. According to their report, the voltage of the battery was only outputting 11.91 V when it should be close to 15V if it was running at optimum performance and the CCA level was only 258 when it should have been 590. After the tests, we had to have the car jump started to get it running. On the way home, the speedometer went out, the clock radio went out and the ride was no longer smooth at all it was skipping madly. My question is what needs to be fixed/replaced/looked at in order to get this situation resolved and my car running again? Thank you for your help.
