Need to replace solenoid on 2008 Kia Picanto automatic
\015 Car makes fast clicking sound when attempting to start(typical of flat battery), but battery reads 12.5V, and is barely 1 year old. She starts immediately when jumper cables are used from another vehicle(i.e. 2 batteries work) so colleagues suggested my solenoid is kissed. Any help/suggestions on how to remove/ replace it please? Auto part shops want the sample to match up as apparently they dont go based on car make/ model? Thanks, Ru\015
From what you describe, there is a good posssibility that the solenoid is "kissed". The reason why the parts suppliers want to do a visual match is that different starters may have been used in production of your Kia
