Check the wiring near the trailer hitch for breaks shorts and places where the wires enter/leave any metal channels where the wires arent in a plastic cover(available at parts stores)sometimes the installers will not cover the wires and they get pinched or wear through causing a short..once repaired, put the wire in a protective cover and tape the ends so it wont move..repost with findings please...

SOURCE: air bag light

if the air bag stays on that means you have a problem with the air bag system, and you need to have it diagnose, but if you just bought the sedona from a used car dealer they have to fix it, it is part of the safety inspection requred by law

SOURCE: how do you change the right front headlight bulb on a kia sedona

Remove the headlight assembly. Just remove the 3 bolts with a 10 mm socket and pull it out so you can disconect the wire harness. After that pull the whole assembly out and unscrew the bulb cover. The bulb is held in with a spring clip.

2003 Olds Alero keeps blowing fuse For dash and tail lights


Likely there's a wire loose that's shorting to the chassis. The way I troubleshoot these is to put a lightbulb in the fuse socket, and then go under the dash, and move stuff around while somebody watches the light. When it goes on, you're close to the problem. Yeah, it's a royal pain, but that's the best way I know.

My fuse keeps blowinng when i turn on my lights but the headlights ,blake lights and turn signals work but no tail or parking lights


If the fuse blows, you have a dead short to ground somewhere, likely around the tail lights or parking lights. Try this:

Get a box of the correct fuses.
Remove all tail and parking bulbs and put in a new fuse. If the fuse does not blow, try installing each bulb at a time to see which light assembly causes the fuse to blow.
Let's suppose its the RH tail light assembly. Pull it off the car and check for dirt and damaged wiring.

If this is an older vehicle, there may be wiring damage (due to rust) in the harness under the carpets.

2005 kia sorento change ext fuse and it keep blowing


I have a 2004 Sorento EX and my EXT fuse along with the stop lamp fuse kept blowing. The ext would blow as soon as I turned the vehicle on. The stop lamp would blow after a couple pushes of the brake pedal causeing me to have no rear lights at all regarding brake and the lights that you turn on at night. After much reading online in forums such as this, I was led on a chase looking for grounding wires, broken wires, dirty battery terminals, faulty altinator, and for a drl module. I could not find a drl module as I now do not believe there is one in sorentos, or at least in mine. I then came to the brake switch that is located on the arm of the brake pedal. I disconnected it, put a couple of new fuses in, started my vehicle and checked my fuses, and at last they did not blow! I reconnected the brake switch and checked the fuses and they had blown. I have a hunch that I am dealing with a faulty brake switch. Hope this helps

you may have the wrong wires hooked into the switch. try testing the wires with an ohm meter and making sure they are both the positive wires. always disconnect the negative battery terminal before installing any electrical devices

Blowing fuses for my tail lights


Hi, Tail lights are probably the most common blowing problem. The tail lights are handed and shouldn't blow together ie , Lhs or Rhs.High or your check list should be Number plate wiring (it's more exposed and prone to damage, Secondly try the hinge areas where the cableing leaves the body and enters the boot lid.
On rare occasions it can be something you've previously tampered with ; ie cigarette lighter socket , front lamp bulb holder, even a towing socket if fitted etc . Finally a bad earth connection will not blow fuses unless the wire is completely detached and floating around the lamp cluster. Good Luck

Check the cable, connector or the holder, this might also be cause of fuse box problem, sometimes fuse seems to be ok but the fuse slot get ionised salts that makes a connection problem. You can swithch the wires for indicator with tail light wires to make it sure that the holders or bulbs are ok

Tail lights don"t work, brake and signals ok


Check for dash/ instrument lights. I would say there is a fuse bad and you just haven't found it yet.
