Question about 2003 Kia Sedona

Open Question

2003 Kia Sedona won't start AGAIN!

Last night my husband drove the Kia for deliveries, stopped and turned it off, it wouldn't start back up. Has all it's power - radio and all. He had someone come over and look at it - then he messed under the hood for a moment and then it started again. He drove it back to Pizza Hut and went inside waited for the deliveries and went back out to drive it - It wouldn't start AGAIN... He ended up having it towed this time. Sat all night and this morning it started for a monment then he shut it off and went out later to restart it and nothing.....What could this be? HELP

    Similar Problem on a 2004 Kia Sedona. Starts cold OK, but I try and start it within about 30 minutes of shutting it off, it wont start. Starter just spins but nothing turns over.

Headlights wont turn on

I have same problem but only affects my passenger side low beam. I have replaced bulb many times, checked wiring, socket, dealership can\'t figure it out.. Is just one of Kia\'s little quirks. I drive with high beams and fortunately they are dim enough that no one complains. Some times u just gotta put up with it! Good car otherwise

2005 Kia Sedona Catalytic Converter

possible but as the cat converter is a mass honeycomb of openings around 1/2 mm one small spot of carbon would not cause the fault
when a new engine is fitted, the oxygen sensor will take time to read the operation of the cat converter and if the cat is failing as they said then at some point the readings may be outside the set parameters for the sensor
That in turn will cause the heated oxygen sensor to go out of parameters and possibly put the light on
they are partially correct to say not to worry about the cat converter until it starts to break down then it will block the exhaust or you get an inspection and a test ordered
At this point in time , drive it and put some saving aside for a new cat converter and have it changed when you can afford it

Sounds like you have moisture getting into your ignition somewhere. Have your mechanic look at it again but have him water down engine compartment, little at a time.

Sounds like a catalytic converter problem. Driving through deep water can damage. See if you have exhaust flow at the tailpipe. The A/C is most likely low on Freon.
