Question about 2003 Kia Sedona

1 Answer

I have no tail lights on my 2003 Kia Sedona.

The turn signals work, the head lights work but I don't think the DRL work. Is there an easy fix. We have checked all the fuses and they are good. The brake lights also work!

Help, this beast is starting to cost a lot of $$$$ in repairs!

    brake lights and reverse lights work turn signals, but no tail lights ... can't seem to find where the fuse is .... and yes I am a woman !

    I have the same problem but I have noticed that when the temperature is above 0, they come on and when it is below 0, they don't come on. If it is the circuit board shorting out, is that an expensive job?

I'm afraid to say it is most likely the circuit board shorting out
but may be trace the earth point to the chassis. It's often a bad ground that causes faults.
After this - check bulbs and finally the cable run back to the switch.

05 kia sedona headlights wont work. have running lights and turn signals replaced column switch 3 times. relays are good. bulbs are good. at loss

You don't say whether your Kia has autolamps but if so, the auto light control circuit could be defective.
With DRL, the resistor, unit, or relay could be defective.

Rear running lights not working, brake lights work ,when pressing brake.,,, changed fuse and still nothing?

tail lights did not work but any other light did. In the engine compartment fuse box the EXT fuse is not there are instead there is a piece of rubber. If you put in a 10A fuse as described in the owner's manual then the lights run with the switch instead of being always on. Must be something wrong with DRL relay for the rear lights.

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

Low beams on head lights not working


I had this problem.
In Canada all cars come with daytime running lights- (DRL) My 2004 Kia Sedona had this problem and it was the DRL Module.

Serach internet to find it's location. ( I think it is under the centre console, but dealer changed under warranty)

It should not be hard to find and change - It is usually just a small plastic box... plus or minus the size of a fist.

I don't know if DRL is required in the USA but it may be standard on Kias

2003 Kia Sedona no parking lights at all, also no dash lights

Brake lights and turn signals are diffrent circuits. Take a long jumper wire and attach it to one of your parking lights that you can get to with easy access. Attach it to the positive wire. If you attach it to the negative it will spark. Once attached to the positive, trun on your park lights and see if all including dash lights come on. If this is helpful, please post as such. TY
