Question about 2007 Kia Sedona LX Minivan
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.

CHECK ALTERNATOR FUSE AND FUSE LINK ALTERNATOR NOT GETTING NO POWER FROM BATTERY.ALSO CHECK ALTERNATOR WIRES CONNECTORS FOR DAMAGE OR BROKE WIRES IN THE ALTERNATOR ELECTRICAL CONNECTORS. I HAD SAME PROBLEM WITH CHEVROLET THE VOLTAGE REGULATOR WIRES CAME OUT THE CONNECTOR I HAD TO BUY NEW CONNECTOR CRIMP IT SOLDER THEN SEAL IT WITH ELECTRICAL TAPE IF FUSE AND FUSE LINK OKAY MORE LIKELY YOU HAVE DAMAGED WIRES AT CONNECTOR MAKE SURE DRIVE BELT TIGHT AND NOT SLIPPING.
