Question about 2005 Kia Sedona EX

I have just purchased a 2005 kia sedona from a mechanic. It's a nice car, but every time I'm driving down a road and step on the brake, the door locks unlock all the doors. The automatic door

Automatic door locks keep unlocking the doors when I step on the brake while driving, door lock buttons only work when ignition is turned off.

    I don't think its a door ajar switch acting up, the door ajar light does work and is not on when the doors are closed. My wife decided just to take it to a mechanic today so we'll figure it out from there, I'll provide the results for those who have this same problem once it is fixed.

It sounds like you may have a door switch going bad or in need to adjustment, the car thinks the door is ajar and then cycles the locks. the hard part may be to figure out which switch is making it act up.

To fill the transmission fluid, you need a funnel that fits into the dipstick tube, add fluid there. If the fluid is black and smells burnt, that's bad. I would have the fluid changed. These transmissions don't have a filter, probally a bad idea.

If you put your foot on the brake and your car stalls, that is a symptom of your brake booster going bad.

For it stalling on the freeway that could be a few different things, Idle Air Control Valve, the Mass air flow sensor

I need to change the spark plugs and wire in my 2005 Sodona, but can't even find them. Where are they and how do I change them?


You have to remove the intake manifold off to get to plugs 1,3,5. 2,4,6 are in the front with the ignition coils on them. Dealership wanted $600 to do the job. I am no mechanic but was able to do it. Time comsuming!

looking from above you need to remove the air filter housing to make life simple. look down the back over the starter motor and you will see the diff housing with the sensor just on the top. from underneath you wont see it but its easy to feel.

Front end vibration


We're on our second Sedona and have had this problem on both. In our case it was the front brake rotors. The dealer told me that they're not made thick enough to handle heat loads. They are super-sensitive to heating and warp easily.

With my Sedonas the pads were not retracting completely, sometimes dragging on the rotors (not enough to notice this while driving) causing them to heat even when the brakes were not being applied and causing this front end shaking in the steering wheel when braking. When it got worse, the brake pedal would vibrate too. When we would take it up the mountains the long braking periods on the downslopes would make it much worse as the rotors heated up. The dealership had them machined but the issue persisted and ended up replacing the front rotors.

Replacing rotors is not a difficult task if you're mechanically-inclined and have the right tools. I've done it on many vehicles (though not my Sedonas as they were warranty jobs) and it's usually less expensive to replace them with new ones from your parts store than to have a brake shop work on them.

Hope this helps.
