It is located on the drivers side underneath the van. you have to remove it from the underside of the car. you will need a 17 millimeter socket or wrench. Remove the ground cable before attempting to remove the starter.

I have a 2004 kia sedona that when i turn the key no lights on dash and i can turn the key all the way and the engine wont turn over. i have a new alternator, starter, and battery

There is a fuse box under the hood, check all the fuses, make sure that the cable to the battery is not rotted off under the insulation. You are going to need a test light or a meter.

My 2004 Kia Sedona won't start. I turn the key and it just clicks, doesn't even turn over. Sometimes, after a lot of tries, it roars into life, so the battery is ok, but it's becoming worse and worse.

The starter is faulty, when you click it it moves a little bit = enough to find a good spot on the armature to turn over. Needs to be replaced.

Starter is located underneath the car at the rear of the engine, you will have to crawl underneath.If you are having problems starting try taking lead off the starter and clean connections, I did this and it cleared the problem.
