Kia sedona problems

Yes they make a kit to bypass the system, check with your dealer, they can bypass it. If you want to make sure thats your problem, then you can go through this procedure:

The most common cause of a non-starting car is the battery. It is either weak, (low voltage) dead, (zero voltage) or has bad connections. (corroded or loose) I will assume you have a fully charged battery with good connections. (both to battery and starter relay)
If you remove the starter switch lead (small wire) from the starter relay and apply +12v from the battery to its respective prong or lead on the relay, and your starter cranks, your starter switch is faulty. (not to be confused with your key switch). If you jump the two large wires together on the relay and it cranks, then the relay is faulty. If you jump the two large wires together and nothing happens, then starter is faulty, or wires to starter are loose or broken. Picture of starter switch prong on the relay is pictured. NOTE: sparks are to be expected, so don't be too scared. Pictured is starter relay that is mounted seperate of starter, on models with starter/relay mounted together, its similar.

1990 volkswagen jetta burns out starters

they had a problem with the ground for the starter relay. its located under the drivers kick panel. you have to locate the relay and follow the ground back. i had the same issue. also you need to do a voltage drop test on the positive cable and check the resistance on the engine ground located on the bell housing

Starter relay location for 1999her Lexus ES300

Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions section. Remove or disconnect the following:
Drain engine coolant
V-bank cover
Accelerator cable
Intake air connector
Throttle Body
Upper and lower intake manifold assembly
Rear water bypass joint
Water bypass pipe
Water bypass pipe from the water pump
Wire clamp from the bracket on the water bypass pipe
O-ring from the water bypass pipe
Water bypass pipe bracket from the water bypass pipe
2 bolts holding the starter to the cylinder block
Starter connector
Starter from the cylinder block
Nut, and disconnect the starter wire

Replacing a starter on 1999 Lexus ES300 was not all that hard. You had metric socket and combination wrenches and a phillip's screw driver. In this video show you how uninstalled the starter and then replaced it in pretty good detail. This starter is used in 1998 to 2001, and so basically you could use the same procedure that is shown there.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.

This is gwen again no the car dont turn over but i hear a clicking on the right side at a fuse box all the lights come on the dash but does nothing

This clicking is due to one of several possible parts. The Starter relay will click if the Battery is low or has a dirty connection. The Starter relay will click if the relay has burned components inside and is the weak link between the Battery and the Starter.

A bad or Grounded-out Starter will ruin a Starter relay by melting its' contact points and then the Starter relay will make the noise you describe.

A smaller Relay in the fuse panel (Ignition Relay) may be keeping the small wires to your Starter Relay from working.

Start out by cleaning the Battery cables for the battery. If not fixed, have someone bypass the Starter Relay after you disconnect the small wires going to that Relay. When bypassed the Starter should turn and if the Key is turned on the RUN position, the engine should start. Be careful to have a stick-shift in Neutral or an Automatic in Park.

If the Starter does not turn when the Starter relay is bypassed, then the starter is bad. If the Battery is bad, then the Starter will not turn either. Check the Battery before condemning the Starter.

1993 sierra gmc truck wont start... speedometor races battery working and has had the starter replaced. Gages jumping relays clicking, but no juice to the

If your starter has 2 or more small wires on it you may have switched the terminals. If you have a separate starter relay you can bypass the relay with a jumper cable and send 12 volts to the starters only main cable. It should crank, have it in Park (Auto) or Neutral (stick shift). If the starter does not crank bypassed then the only thing missing is a good ground. Use a pair of jumper cables and try grounding the starter case and connect the cable to a good ground. With the gauges dancing usually a bad ground is the reason, so the jumper cables will help with that problem too, at least for test reasons.

If you had the old starter tested, then you know it was the first problem. But if the old starter was not tested your problem could be a bad starter relay, an ignition switch,or finally a bad ground. Check the grounding of the remote starter relay, check for a plug-in connector off the end of the steering column for corrosion.

if by bypass you mean the ignition switch. jump it at the relay, find the starter relay the relay should have a diagram on the side and numbered posts on the bottom with a jumper wire you can jump the post in the power distribution. look at the diagram there should be a switch which shows normally open you need to jump the posts that would close this switch and this will jump you starter make sure you key is on to start the vehicle. hope this helps some

Will not start

Normally the problem like this is caused by faulty starter relay.This can be solved by replacing the starter's relay contact mechanism.After a prolong time the starter relay contact mechanism will get worn out as a result of arcing.Check also to make sure there is no loose cable at the connection.
