Question about 2004 Kia Sedona
I have a 05 Sedona in which I had the heads redone complete due to a bad valve and guides. ( a long story involving very poor service from KIA) After final assembly and initial start up of the rebuilt engine I now have a no charge from the altenator. I checked all grounds and the battery feed to the altenator. All is fine, 12 volts at the Alt. every NEG wire I can remembver and see is connected. I installed a new Alt and charged the battery on slow charge over night. Still the altenator output at the battery is 12.15 volts not the reccomended 13.8 to 14.2. Other than the PCM which controls the Alt what could I look for and is there a test of the PCM circuit?

sir , the altenator has 3 wires at the connector correct ? a white/red , a green/white and a black , the white/red wire is involved with a 10 amp fuse to do with the charging meter / gauge , the fuse located behind left side of dash .. the green/white wire is is involved with 2 fuses , a 10 amp ECU fuse and a 25 amp Main fuse located at left rear of engine compartment main box , and the black wire is involved with a main 80 amp fuse at the main box also . both of these 2 wires end up at the positive side of the battery , please verify all these fuses are good . if they are indeed good , then open wiring would be next step verify continuity on black and the white/green wires . i would post a link to diagram but autozone repair info site is down at this time . if ya need more help , please ask .

you have to remove plastic cover over radiator support then the radiator support then remove both cooling fans disconnect battery remove alternatoor belt remove bracket from alternator to motor mount 2 12mm bolts then the alternator bolts the lower one is hard to get in and out but with patience it can be done then undo wiring to alternator pull alternator back and slide along front of engine it pulls out closer to the driver side before reinstalling grind the head down some on the lower bolt leave some there to get a wrench on and go in reverse

Hi, the actual output voltage produced by the alternator will vary depending on temperature and load, but will typically be about 1-1/2 to 2 volts higher than battery voltage. At idle, most charging systems will produce 13.8 to 15.3 volts with no lights or accessories on. This can be measured by connecting the positive (+) and negative (-) test leads of a voltmeter to the battery posts while the engine is running.
Possible cause of the alternator not charging includes Slipping or broken alternator belt, Open diode, Open circuit in stator windings, Open charging circuit, Open field circuit, Worn brushes or slip ring and Defective voltage regulator..

SOURCE: cannot get altenator out of
Make sure that the wires are removed, belt is removed, and the top and bottom bolts are completely out of the holes. If all of that is done the alternator is just jammed in the recepticle. Take a large screwdriver or small/ medium prybar and place between the alternator and brackets and pull. it may be tough but it will come out. Good luck and i hope i was of some assistance. Please leave feedback if i was able to help.
Thank you for your question!

Has anyone checked the timing belt ? sounds to me like it might have striped or broke a timing belt. need to ckeck it for fire/fuel , there should be a cover you can remove to see if the belt has any damage.
