Question about 2004 Kia Sedona

1 Answer

2004 Kia Sedona wont start but i can hear starter.

Probelm with '04 Kia Sedona-
- I turn the key to start van but can only hear starter revving. Engine doesn't turn on.
- Replaced battery because i thought i was a mechanic but didn't solve problem
- Placed original battery back in.
- Tried turning engine on again. Heard starter revving and engine starting to turn. I stepped on gas and the engine started.
- Engine sounded as if it was making a higher revving noise than normal.

Do you know what's wrong?
Thanks Josh

If the starter is revving very slowly it is the battery, charge battery. if not, It can be three things happing. 1 no spark 2 no fuel 3 no crank signal or the car computer is bad- you will need to unplug one of the spark wires and remove the spark plug and put the spark plug in the spark plug wire boot, and touch the spark plug on any metal on the car and have some start the car. donot touch the spark plug itself and see if there is a spark. if spark is bright, then it is not spark plug and wires but if no or spark is not bright, check the spark plug wires by applying a little bit of water on the spark plug wire and take a 12v test light, connect the clap to ground and and have some one to crank the vehicle, touch allover the spark plug wires with the tip of the test light, if you see spark, replace the wires and change the plugs.. they are not good. if spark is present, check for fuel by removing any one of the spark plugs and see if it is wet. if wet fuel pump is ok but if not go look for the fuel pump fuse and relay. is fuse blown, replace, check the relay resistor with a volt meter. it should be around 40 to 80 ohm. if everything is good from this point check the fuel pump itself by disconnecting the connector to the pump and apply 12v and ground using jumper wires or some wires to the fuel pump if you donot hear the pump,replace pump. if you, the crank signal or computer may be the problem

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.

I have a used 2004 Kia Sedona that won't start with a valet key, I misplaced my regular set and thought that this key would work just as my usual key would. Now the garage that I'm having my vehicle...


The dealer can make you a new key. A valet key is limited, but should start the car unless it is missing a chip. It will not open the glove box (if there is a lock) or trunk.

the car will not start if the immo light is not lit. sometimes turning the key back and forth or removing it and locking then unlocking the car can sometimes remedy this.
