Question about 2007 Kia Sedona LX Minivan

2007 kia sedona stalled, and battery dying

The brake light, ESC off light, and battery light all came on, then the car stalled. It didn`t have enough power to start again without a jump. Then it stalled again after I got it home about a mile away. Battery doesn`t seem to be charging. Could this be the alternator, timing belt, or what?

I own a 2007 Kia Sedona LX. I have had it since Nov if 2009. I m replacing my battery every six month due to the fact that the vehicle has a draw and has had since the day I bought it. The ESC light is saying off.. It was under warranty by Doug Smith autoplex and I have taken it there complaining about this problem. I was told that when they test my charging system it has the normal factory draw. I took it there again and was told it is working fine and not to return. They made me feel crazy.I have been fighting this problem for 4 years. Now that my vehicle is no longer under warranty, Doug Smith Autoplex has magically found a problem with it. Upon fixing the problem, THE VEHICLE STILL DRAINS THE BATTERY DEAD OVER A PERIOD OF 2 DAYS! I have called KIA headquarters in Irvine California. They haven't been helpful whatsoever. I have stopped many people that own my year of Van and asked is they experience the same problem. I m surprised to find that many of them have complained about replacing batteries OFTEN! So this is a FACTORY ISSUE! BEWARE BUYING A KIA SEDONA. People are complaining about in on youtube also. I m returning to Doug Smith tomorrow to again try to fix the problem.

Brake problem


Usually if the booster fails, the pedal is very hard to push enough to make the vehicle stop.
If the pedal sinks or is soft, the master cylinder is allowing fluid to bypass the pistons inside.

It sounds like your alternator is bad. Here is how to find out:

Start your car (jump it if necessary)

Let it run - while it is still running - disconnect the battery cables from the battery.

If your car suddenly dies, most likely its the alternator.

If your car does not die after disconnecting the battery cables - then its probably a bad battery and your alternator is working fine.

If you put your foot on the brake and your car stalls, that is a symptom of your brake booster going bad.
