Question about 2002 Kia Sedona

2 Answers

My headlights won't come on and my ABS and lights won't go off...

I have a problem with my 2002 Kia Sedona. My ABS and battery lights just went on and won't turn off. My headlights turned off and won't come back on. My battery has been dying on almost a daily basis since I got my stereo installed., but the other stuff is new. I'm a father of four and I really can't afford to pay someone else to fix my van. What do I need to do to fix it myself? Please Help!

Did you get the stereo professionally installed? if so i would take it back to them and have them check the wiring.......although it sounds like the battery is no longer charging.Have you tried to charge it or get a boost? if everything seems to work properly with a boost then you definitely have a charging issue....(one simple test to see if your alternator is working is to start the vehicle and while its running remove the neg cable....... if it dies the charging system in not working)
hope this helps.Good Luck!

Why won't my new fuel pump in my 2002 kia sedona pump even though it's getting juice from the battery


Have you checked the injector rail with a gauge to know for sure the injectors are not getting fuel ?
If the pump is running but not pumping fuel I would think it is a clogged filter or screen in the tank.

My 55 Kia sedona my red brake warning light comes on after a few miles and stays on until i turn off engine. Also comes on injunction with my amber ABS warning light


First I would check the brake fluid level to make sure there is enough in it.Most of all It seems you have a major problem with the the ABS system which turns on the brake light as well as the ABS light.Chances are you have a couple of wheel sensors that have gone bad.Do you hear a wrrrrrr sound that increases and decreases as you go faster and slower while your driving?

Check the battery voltage. If it is 15 volts or higher, it might be a bad regulator in the alternator. High voltage will kill light bulbs.

Abs and brake,battery lights won,t turn off .


I have the same van with similar problems. I had a small leak from the lower left corner of the windshield that dripped down into my fuse box when we had a heavy rain. My defrost light and dome lights got stuck on. We had to remove the fuses and let the box dry out. We had to take it to someone to find the leak and caulk the windshield. I don't know if this might help but you might look into this????? Good luck.

Turns over but wont start


Briannatara:

Some questions to help in the analysis........

You say "it cranked for about 3 seconds and died as if I turned off the key" did it actually start and then die?
Have there been any clues (unusual happenings) recently that might relate to the current problem?

Is there a reason the battery went dead? was something left on? Lights, etc?

How old is the battery?
