Kia Rio 5-door 1.1 CRDi Manual, 75hp, 2013
I own a Kia Rio 5-door 1.1 CRDi Manual, 75hp, 2013 and im experience a very strange issue. The car is unresponsive when i try to unlock it with the key fob and when it is open with the physical key, nothing lights up and is unable to start. However, after some time of messing around with different things, everything will light up and the car would start with no problems. At times it would take 5 mins and sometimes nothing will happen for about 30 mins and then come to life. So far I have not been able to pin point, what triggers the car to respond. The problem normally occurs after being parked for a few days and once it gets going, it behaves normally for the rest of the day. I have tried changing the batteries of the key fob and the car battery is at 12.6V when it wont start. Called up a garage and they insist it is the car battery as it is 8 years old. Anyone experience a similar problem or have an idea what could be wrong?
