Question about 2002 Kia Sedona

1 Answer

Emergency Break Not Holding

I have a 2002 Kia Sedona that I purchased new, six years ago. I had problems over the past three years that the emergency break will not hold. Recently, I took the vehicle to Firestone. They worked on it for three days, installing new rear drums, break pads, and finally a new emergency cable. The problem still exists. They finally gave up, and refunded me the $350.00 that they had charged me. They could not figure out what the problem is. I'm hesitant to take it to the local dealer, Bert Ogden Motors, because I cannot trust them.

When you press the emergency break pedal, it makes a rubbing sound of some sort.

Have you received any other requests like this?

Thanks,
Jeff Merwin

Did you check the bracket for holding the brake paddle bar? May be there is some crack on the bracket.

Break alarm goes off when I take anything more than a slight right turn.


Not real sure. If there's nothing wrong with your brakes or your emergency brake then I would probably say it something electrical.

2002 kia sedona horn will not work not fuse has checked


It would probably be a break in the line, break in current. You would need to check the wires to find out. If it is blowing the fuse, check the wire in that area first. If not, start checking the other side behind the sterring column. Wiring diagrams are here www.commandocaralarms.com

Code reads # 6 cylinder misfire and primary coil ckt shorted


You auto has a 3.5L engine. Three of the cylinders are plain wires. #'s 1-3-5 are the front three.The rear cylinders are #'s 2-4-6. These three are "coil on boot". # 6 cylinder uses coil on boot. This wire appears to be defective. You can purchase a set of three coil on boot wires for around $40. Twist and pull to remove. Be careful when installing new wires; They break easily.
