Have the sedona scanned at an AutoZone or similar place and ask for code. they will not tell you whats wrong with it but they will give you a code. You can go from there. You can come back and tell us what the code is .

Did ya wash it right before this happened? If so the Computer is wet and/or the connector(s) to the computer are wet or moist.. Even if ya didnt wash it.. Locate the puter and investigate it.. it only takes a drop of moisture to ruin the continuity of the computer. As per Code 1631 indicates with us. To an average person with an OBD2 Scanner.. 1631 would mean the puter is fried.. but wha Ive seen is just wet/moist connections at the ECM (computer itself).. Hope this helps.. thank you

Here is instructions to install key fob:
1. Open driver's door. Turn ignition to "ON" position.
2. Locate the programming button on wiring harness pigtail. It is behind the left side of the center console (to the right of the gas pedal). It is next to the RKE module. (feel around under the plastic wall)
3. Press and hold the programming button for 15 seconds. The horn will sound 3 times when it enters programming mode.
4. Press the lock button on the transmitter. The horn should sound once to confirm the transmitter. Repeat for any additional transmitters. You apparently can have up to 4 transmitters.
5. Turn ignition to "OFF" and test transmitters.

The engine and transmission in this cars drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Power Train Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL THE DIAGNOSIS & TESTING IS COMPLETED.
