If you have been having it serviced with a Kia dealer it is still under warranty.. take it to them, they will kno of any issues. or try the kia owners forum.

I bought and fitted the immobilser pick up ring that goes around the ignition barrel (Antenna) and so far so good, starts everytime.

Thats for all the info chaps.

That is why i have my car serviced at Kia.

When this happens, look at the display and see if the "car" symbol is fully lit, flashing or off. Turning the key to start too quickly can occasionally mean the immobiliser hasn't cleared, so the starter turns over but doesn't fire. Turning off, then ignition on, pause a second and then it should start if that was the reason.
