Question about 2004 Kia Sedona
I recently had a new starter motor fitted on my Sedona when re connecting the battery it blew the ECU(i thinks thats what it's called) which I also had to replace, since having this work done I am having endless trouble with Battery drain I charge it up and the next day the battery is dead, there is nothing left on in the car (interior lights etc) that is causing this and have had several mechanics look at it who said the battery is the problem , so i have now replaced the battery and it is still doing the same thing, has anyone else had a similar problem or can anyone point me in the right direction of what it could be . Someone said it could be a faulty DVD player thats draining the Battery which was a problem with Sedonas, any help is appreciated . Many Thanks Mike

Mike , if you have and can use a digital multi meter with amps ,
disconnect the negitive battery cable , set your multi meter to dc amps
, connect it inbtween the battery neg cable and the battery neg post on
battery , we are looking for a draw of over 30 miliamps , that is
acceptable . keep the car doors closed while doing this test , under
the hood find the fuse box and start pulling fuses 1 at a time , note
any decrease in draw , lets say you hook up meter and see 300 miliamp
draw , not acceptable , pull a fuse and wait for a moment , if no
decrease reinstall that fuse and go to the next , if by pulling all
fuses you haven't found the problem circuit , the altenator is a good
sourse of drain sometimes , disconnect all the wires to the altenator ,
note any change . remember 30 miliamps is acceptable on a kia. post
results when done .
cheers , you found the problem circuit , will you continue diagnostics or call it fixed ?
