2018 Kia Sportage - electrical system is dead

Car electrical system not responsive this morning, no lights, inside or out and no start! Jump started right up and all systems show good! Why? Battery replaced 5 months ago!

based on the extremely limited information you gave us, I’d say you either have a parasitic draw somewhere that drained your battery or one of your terminal connections was loose and got tightened up during the jump.


Thanks, I’ll check that again!

Why did you replace a 3 yr old battery?

I put my money on “Rodent Damage.” What, you think they only got into Kia Souls???
