Before you try taking your tank down take your seats out remove your mats look on the floor area for a small opening in the floor mat open it I believe that hole will show the fuel pump on your tank check fuel pump relay under the hood then check your wireing harness at the fuel before attempting to remove the fuel pump

Re: Fuel Pump repalcement in a 02 KIA Sedona
Yes. You will have to disconnect and pull out the battery. Than you will either have to syphon gas out or drop tank with gas in it. I recommend using tranny jack to help support the tank as it is lowered or have an assistant help you. First thing you want to do is open gas cap and remove gas pressure. Than go underneath and remove wire harness, the filler hoses, than tank brackets, than support bolts.
Drop the tank, To remove the pump you MUST USE A BRASS Punch (to avoid any sparks) and knock the lock ring counter clockwise. Than the pump should pull out from there.

The fuel pump is in the gas tank and access in inside the van between the first row and second row of seats. The access is covered with a carpeted cover and then another metal cover which screws into the gas tank. Then there is a cover top of the assembly.
You must use a brush and clean off all the areas before removing the pump or the dirt will get into the gas tank. Disconnect three electrical connectors and two fuel lines. Mark the fuel lines so you are not confused to put in the new one. The electrical conectoers are individually different from each other.
2005's do not screw into the tank, they have clips. The clips have tabs imbedded into the top so you know where they are located to disengage them.
The tank lifts out and the float mechanism requires you to live it up and then tilt and shift it to get the float mechanism clear of the gas tank hole.
i have tried a search and i cannot find where the 02 sedona offered a diesel option motor, i found only one available motor and that was a 3.5 sfi , well that pump is in the tank. Did you try and put diesel fuel in this vehicle? as it wont run on diesel.and its possible it fried the pump. but you will have to drain tank and flush fuel lines if this is the case.
the sending unit is a variable resistor(potientiometer ) on the fuel pump
its probly bad it requiers a couple confirmation tests prier to dropping your gas tank and changing the pump but I got my money on that sending unit 97% of the time new fuel pump will fix it you coul change just the sending unit but you still have to pay almost as much and its the same job smartest thing too do is change the whole thing
I have a Kia Sedona 2005 and I can't fill it up with gas without the pump kicking off and I have tried several gas stations. Sometimes I can get a few gallons in with no problem but then it kicks off again and I have to spend twenty minutes dripping fuel into it until I loose patience. Help me!
start of at the gas tank look under neath there are some black lines running towards the engine follow it to a small gold color that ataches to the line you are following that is the filter the pump is in the gas tank you need to drop the straps at the tank to bring it down
I believe there is actually an access panel in front of the second row seat behind the drivers seat that you can access the top of the tank, fuel pump and possibly the fuel filter. Lift up the carpeting and check. 1.Remove the fuel tank cap to lower the fuel tank's internal pressure.2.Locate access cover.3.Remove the fuel pump & fuel filter assembly installation screws, then remove the fuel pump & fuel filter assembly from the fuel tank.
fuel pump is burned out from running out of gas, the pump is cooled by the gas it sits in inside the fuel tank, when you run low on fuel or out of gas you over heat the pump severely and the bearings in the pump seize up, have seen it dozens of times in my 30 years of dealer work.
