Question about 2004 Kia Sedona
I have a 2004 Kia Sedona 6cyl. It will not start. We have checked fuses, computer, relays , main fuse, camshaff position sensor. There is NO spark at the coils and NO power to the fuel pump. Please help. Don't know what else to check.
I've been fighting this same problem of "cranks but won't start" (intermittent problem) on a 2003 Kia Sedona van, First you can try swapping around relays under the hood (several are the same value, can put electric windows's relay in the "main relay" spot etc to see if "that fixes it")
For me, that didn't change anything, so I pretty well dialed in it "wasn't" a relay causing my intermittent lack of fire to the plugs / no ignition (but starter would spin). THEN:
I knew the other possibility for intermittent "not sending or allowing spark", no ignition, was a wearing out / failing of the ignition switch itself, the wire to the starter is all fine but the wire saying "have ignition" isn't making contact, SO, I released the "steering wheel adjust up and down" lever and smacked the steering wheel (and ignition switch) assembly up and down pretty roughly for a few seconds, re-tried it, "started right up".
Like smacking a fuse box with a rubber hammer sometimes reveals wires in the back not making connection well (being fixed temporarily by a smack), "this" got my ignition switch out of "not quite making contact with internal connections" mode.
A week ago I had to have the van towed, jumps etc didn't change anything, duh, it was the ignition switch. Try this if you have intermittent "won't fire"! For some reason, it never dies on me once it is running, thankfully.
