My 2004 sedona has little power going up hills, my local machanic says the code( po431) means the bank 2 catyletic converter is bad, but which converter is bank2? also have a code -p01159 which no one...

The answer to your first question is the Oxygen sensor bank 2. Its the oxygen sensor after the catalytic towards the rear of the motor. For the other DTC there is no P01159 DTC, P0159 is Bank 1 Sensor 1 Oxygen Sensor bad, P1159 is an air intake leak or a MAF (Mass Air Flow Sensor leak)

The seat belt in the van won't come out.

Seat belts are supposed to be under warranty for the life of the car, the exceptions being vandalism or abuse. Call your local Kia dealer, and ask them about this. Let me know how you make out, most dealers don't want to do a free fix, but they should. If they refuse to help, I will try to help further. Good luck!
