It is possible that your alternator is overcharging/sending too much electricity to the headlights, the headlights are most likely on a different circuit than the other electrical circuits. Usually they have there own circuit because they use so much power, There is usually a relay circuit that works (like a solenoid) which connects the larger wire together. Also if the relay or solenoid is bad then maybe the lights are flipping on and off and it blows the blubs. Also it is possible that you have a short in the wiring which goes to the bulbs which causes power fluxuations which blows the bulbs. Are you sure the bulbs actually burn out? Or do you replace them in the daytime after they burnout or go off at night driving. You also have a Circuit breaker which can cut the lights off, then perhaps after the car shuts off and cools down a few hours it resets and works again, again this would be a sign of a short OR your using the wrong size or wattage bulbs which takes more electric than normal for the circuit breaker.

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.

The speed sensor is located on the right side facing the driver side. It is on the transmission under the air filter and air line that leads to the intake manifold. It is on the left side of the transmission. It is not on top of the transmission but on the left side of the transmission close to the firewall. It is best to raise the car and locate it from underneath.

lights burn out from excessive current flow cause from arcing from a bad earth or loose earth wire . Check that the bulbs are tight in the fitting and the spring clip retainer is tight.

My 55 Kia sedona my red brake warning light comes on after a few miles and stays on until i turn off engine. Also comes on injunction with my amber ABS warning light

First I would check the brake fluid level to make sure there is enough in it.Most of all It seems you have a major problem with the the ABS system which turns on the brake light as well as the ABS light.Chances are you have a couple of wheel sensors that have gone bad.Do you hear a wrrrrrr sound that increases and decreases as you go faster and slower while your driving?

Check the battery voltage. If it is 15 volts or higher, it might be a bad regulator in the alternator. High voltage will kill light bulbs.

My 2002 Kia Sedona is acting up

you could have a problem with the alternator, you will need a multimeter to test the battery then the battery with the engine running. HID lights ABS will not work at below 10 volts. the alternator may be charging but not at its full power, battery should be 12.05 volts fully charged and with alternator should make the voltage at the battery with engine running, should be at 14 volts. I don't think the radio would be the problem unless it has been wired wrong but that should not be the case if used original wiring. but if the alternator and battery is good then i would check the radio, it could be sorting out somewhere if not fitted correctly or has a fault.
