04 Kia Sedona not getting fuel.

My sister has an 04 Kia Sedona, And recently it got towed, And now it won't start anymore. It'll start for a few seconds if I use starting fluid. From what I can tell, it seems like the engine isn't getting any fuel to it. The fact that it happened right after being towed makes me think it's a fuel roll over switch or something, But I've no idea where that might be, and my sister doesn't have the manual. At first I assumed it might've just been the pump, but I replaced that and still had the same problem, and I tested the original after taking it out, and it's fine. Any Ideas?

    P.S. When I turn the key to listen for the fuel pump, I do not hear the fuel pump turn on, But I have tested both externally and they are fine. I have checked the fuse and the relay for the fuel pump, and they seem fine.

The KIA Sedona main computer decides not to let it start if there are any one of 23 things not working on the van. The starter will work but not start the motor. Suggest running the diagnostic to see what the computer has to say needs to be fixed. My sedona is down right now because the fan motor is broken in front of the radiator. As soon as the computer read that it did not work, it would not start again.

There's no fuel cut off switch for your car-if there's no ground for the relay it means there's a problem with the computer ground driver for the relay make sure there is ground to relay these a bad about doing this

SOURCE: 2004 Kia Sedona wont start but i can hear starter.

if the starter is revving very slowly it is the battery, charge battery. if not, It can be three things happing. 1 no spark 2 no fuel 3 no crank signal or the car computer is bad- you will need to unplug one of the spark wires and remove the spark plug and put the spark plug in the spark plug wire boot, and touch the spark plug on any metal on the car and have some start the car. donot touch the spark plug itself and see if there is a spark. if spark is bright, then it is not spark plug and wires but if no or spark is not bright, check the spark plug wires by applying a little bit of water on the spark plug wire and take a 12v test light, connect the clap to ground and and have some one to crank the vehicle, touch allover the spark plug wires with the tip of the test light, if you see spark, replace the wires and change the plugs.. they are not good. if spark is present, check for fuel by removing any one of the spark plugs and see if it is wet. if wet fuel pump is ok but if not go look for the fuel pump fuse and relay. is fuse blown, replace, check the relay resistor with a volt meter. it should be around 40 to 80 ohm. if everything is good from this point check the fuel pump itself by disconnecting the connector to the pump and apply 12v and ground using jumper wires or some wires to the fuel pump if you donot hear the pump,replace pump. if you, the crank signal or computer may be the problem

SOURCE: Loss of power/Engine Sputters going up hill

Check our air filter. Nine times out of ten it is something very minor .If you have not changed your air filter in a while, this could cause the loss of power going uphill. On flat ground the vehicle does not have to work as hard as uphill. If your air filter is dirty, this will hamper the carb from breathing properly, thus no power.

SOURCE: 1980 VW rabbit, manual/fuel injection: I am

it starts from cold because the auto choke is on ,allowing a richer mixture ,try removing the sender unit in the tank and seeing if the connection from the pump to the outlet connection is ok or leaking causing a loss of fuel pressure

YOU NEED TO SCAN IT.TO SEE WHAT CODE THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT IS COMING UP WITH.IT COULD BE THE TORQUE CONVERTER ON TRANSMISSION REMAINING LOCK UP OR MASS AIR FLOW SENSOR.IF YOU REPLACE THE FUEL PUMP.YOUR FUEL FILTER WILL CAUSE THE SAME PROBLEM IF ITS STOPPED UP.

Why won't my new fuel pump in my 2002 kia sedona pump even though it's getting juice from the battery


Have you checked the injector rail with a gauge to know for sure the injectors are not getting fuel ?
If the pump is running but not pumping fuel I would think it is a clogged filter or screen in the tank.

My van sedona 2005 after i stop it,it won't restart unless i press a few time on the gas pedal ,and also runs rough a bit what could be the cause of it.


May be the starter or fuel pump. Might not be getting gas after turning it off. the gas may be settling to fast into the fuel pump and none staying in the engine. My friends SUV does not start unless you pump the gas pedal. Not an expert but its what i know it could possibly be.

Is there a fuel shut off switchon my 2003 Kia Sedona


No there is not. Ford is the only manufacturer that uses a resettable inertia fuel cut off switch.

If you not getting power to the pump let me know and I'll help you further. If you vehicle doesn't start let me know what you checked or what the symptoms are and i'll see if I can get you pointed in the right direction.

Sometimes my kia sedona wont start, but if i try again in a few minutes it will start.


its probably a weak fuel pump. that causes excessive cranking time. try this when you try and start it: switch the key from off to on ("accessories on" not "start" position) a few times in for 3 second intervals. that will make the fuel pump prime the system more so it will start the first time. you'll probably here it running in the back. then start the engine and if its a bad fuel pump, then this time it will start right up
