Ok, just purchased a 2009 Borrego, black/tan, with 23K miles on it!

When I picked it up from the Dealer, it had no key fobs, 1 original Kia key, and 1 off-brand key. When I tried to start it with the off-brand key, it would turn over, but not start. I tried the original Kia key and it started right up.

After a day, I used the off-brand key several times and it didn't have a problem. Today I went to the store, and it took me about 5-6 tries with the off-brand key for it to start. it would turn over, feel like it started, but immediatly die. It finally started and I am now home...

So, is this a key problem, or maybe another issue?

I had the same problem, the key has to be programmed by the dealer - not sure if the off brand will work unless it has a transmitter in it. Took 5 minutes but thats almost certainly the problem. Congrats on the purchase, we also bought the black/tan combo - couldn't be happier with the purchase!
