Replaced compressor on 2007 Kia Sereno and compressor wont kick on. What's the problem? Please help.

ac compressors are controlled by relays , switches , high and low pressure switches and fuses
replacing the ac compressor will require the gas charge to be administered as too little or too much will affect the high/low pressure switches
have it inspected by an accredited ac specialist shop for a proper diagnosis and a quote

Does the 2003 kia sedonas ac compressor have the pulley attacted or can it be purchased separately?

The pulley which is called the clutch asm is sperate and can be removed and replaced without the compressor being replaced but i have found that just about ever car or truck that i try to replace the clutch instead of the whole compressor i found the clutch alone will cost as much if not more than the complete unit, i have also found that the most common reason for a compressor clutch or pulley going bad is due to the compressor itself being bad. good day,

Air conditioner started blowing hot air

Either AC compressor or AC clutch failure or both highly likely as Kia Sedona has notable history of this

Sure, one might trace the wire that connects to the compressor, and while its challenging to reach without removal of both fans, it does follow upward into the engine wiring harness. At that point its much more convenient to push a needle into the wire and connect a meter to it to see if it is energized when AC selector on, cabin fan on and cabin thermostat set to coldest setting.

If no voltage then check fuses and try swapping idential relays in the engine compartment box to be sure. If voltage present, then assume the worst.

More important is why the failure. I'm convinced a design error by Kia relative to the suction or low pressure hose is the root cause of such frequent AC compressor or AC clutch failures. You can buy a new Kia OEM suction hose, position it for to install and observe immediate kinking and or collapse. Kia has likely long been aware of this problem but never conducted a recall. You can solve it permanently, toss your existing suction hose and buy this one:

If you buy a "Tough One" brand replacement compressor and filter/dryer together from Advance Auto Parts it has a lifetime replacement warranty. No other compressor is sold with a lifetime warant for a Kia Sedona, not even from Kia itself.
