I saw this on Youtube. Belong to anyone here? Apparently there is a loose ground issue in some new Kias.

I saw it. One unit did not have enough torque on the main ground fastener.

The tool used by the line tech did not report specified torque was reached and let it go on down the line anyways.

Then the poor ground caused a voltage spike that took out the PCM (no start after fastener tightened) and who knows what else.

I checked mine out of an abundance of caution. Rock solid grounding in mine.

I doubt this will be a recurring issue.

Owner posted update. Dealer found bad ground caused pcm failure (huh!).
Check all grounds, torque main ground fastener properly, replace PCM, end of story.

Thanks for updating this thread. I don't know how to use YouTube to reach the owner and bring him over here, but if anyone does, I'd be interested in reading more of his thoughts in a post
