Check the two glow plug relays in the small fuse box behind the big one.(i know it has no glowplugs but the relays controll the heater) they should be 12 v. or connect a jump lead from the positive terminal on the batt to the foremost connection on the heater. leave for 10-15 secs then start. if it starts the relays are shot. 20£ each from a kia dealer

Hi 04 kia sedona 2.9 will not start unless you use easy start then it turns of over a lot before the engine it will start. once running the engine is ok this happens hot or cold.


I would start by pulling a spark plug and seeing if it is fouled. If all plugs are good, check for a clogged air filter or improperly functioning throttle body. Remove the air intake assembly and have someone press the accelerator with the keys in the ACC position. When the accelerator is fully depressed, the throttle plate should open to almost 90 degrees, when the pedal is released, it should close very quickly. If it doesn't, your throttle body will need to be replaced.

2003 kia floods..no start hot


How do you know it floods? Fuel injected vehicles should not over fuel the engine unless an injector/fuel pressure regulator is leaking internally or the computer commands a high injector pulse rate based on sensor information. Does it have spark and fuel pressure when the no start condition presents itself?

I have a 2003 kia sedona which grinds in every gear


I would add transmission fluid, failing that KIA does not give out transmission diagrams even to there Techs so if that does not work it would seem you need a new transmission

2003 Kia Sedona charging system


This is typical. When cold starting/running, it takes more amps to run. It is using amps for higher idle to warm up engine, Altenator is spinning faster, and all sensors are being used at same time.
This is why mechanics say wait til normal operating temperature before any testing is done.
Once the engine hits normal temp, the computer readjust voltage amps, fuel pressure, air intake, timing and more.
