The battery could have one or more bad cells in it. It could be the alternator belt or the alternator itself.

Hi,

There has been known issues with the alternator on several year/versions of this car. If memory serves me right, there was a TSB for the alternator either over or undercharging.The TSB (Technical Service Bulletin) specifies replacing the alternator and re-flashing the PCM.(Powertrain Control Mudule).

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: 2004 Kia Sedona trying to find the starter.

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.

SOURCE: blown lights and overcharging alternator (2 alternator)

this can be caused by a shorted cell in the battery, has the battery tested? and clean the battery cable's, corrosion can also cause this condition.

My car battery doesnt seem to keep a charge for a long time i dont know if its the alternator


You don't leave much information. When the vehicle is running do you notice your lights dimming and the growing bright again? this is a sign of alternator problems. I would also wonder how long has it been since you have changed your battery? maybe it is just time for a new one? 2002 vehicles should have had at least one new battery possibly two.

Battery keeps going flat after 10 mins driving


I would suspect that the problem is with the charging system not charging the battery, as opposed to the battery being bad.

Something is staying on after the car is turned off. Try putting in a dark garage and check interior lights,glove box, under hood light, etc. Also keep in mind even new parts can be defective.

Problem to fill up gas tank


i have seen this in isolated cases at KIA , there was no TSB but the info was at the KIA site for techs , i believe it had to do with what was called the RORV , (roll over valve) , if i recall the fix was to drop the tank and replace this valve , it was in isolated cases .
