2012 Kia’s got a recall on the engine. Mine turned off in the middle of driving! Kia replaces it and paid for towing and a rental

Mine turned out to be the starter even though it tested good. Whenever it gets cold outside it didn’t want to turn over until you pressed the start button 15-25 minutes.

One thing I forgot to mention earlier if your ignition switch fuse blows your car will stop starting at all but check the 30 amp fuse beside the starter relay to make sure it’s good then change the starter. I have a 2010 Kia Optima SX by the way. I had some change the fuse and think it was fixed but the next morning no start again so go ahead and change the starter. There’s something wrong with them they don’t like cold weather.

Dying battery. You have enough juice to light the lights, but not enough to turn the starter motor. Have the battery & charging system checked. Otherwise, it might be the starter/solenoid.
