I have 2010 Kia Sedona that shuts off after I drove it less than 2 miles, I have to tow it then after two day starts a gain , i'm afraid to drive it on the road, What would be the problem?
I had a similar problem on mine, and found and after some head scratching found what the problem was, I'm not saying this is your case but certainly worth checking. Have you ever got into your car put the key in and it just cranks over but does not fire up, you then turn the key off and try again you might do this a few times then it will fire up okay and run, mine was like this and sometimes just cut out as I was driving, now as you turn the key on their is an immobiliser that comes on then goes off when started that's okay, but the times you sat in the car trying to get it started did the immobiliser light come on if not then the problem points to the transducer that sits around your ignition key switch as you put your key in this transponder reads your key and if it's the correct code your light comes on the dash then goes off when started as with mine I found that it was disconnecting itself and suddenly the car stopped, This is very easy to get to and remove so you can replace it if required, just remove the steering wheel shroud that's sits around the back of the steering wheel this will then expose the ignition switch assembly, on the barrel of the switch at the end were the key enters you will find the transducer it's easy to see as it as two small wires coming from it to a little plug for easy removal there is one small screw holding it in place.
