Question about 2005 Kia Sedona
Check engine light came on, does not go off. Auto zone pulled a P1287 code, but Kia results do not come up in their computer. Checked all fluids, they are good. Only trouble I ever have is 1) rotten egg smell at least once a day and 2) lights dimming when I let off the gas. Both of those issues have been going on for while. The light today is new, 1st time it's ever come on.

There has been known issues with the alternator on several year/versions of this car. If memory serves me right, there was a TSB for the alternator either over or undercharging.The TSB (Technical Service Bulletin) specifies replacing the alternator and re-flashing the PCM.(Powertrain Control Mudule).
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.

try not to fill up the tank while the car is running. maybe there is a bad seal on the gas cap now. i would simply reccomend taking it to the nearest advanced auto part, autozone, jiffy lube...anything of that matter and get them to read the code for you[they should do it for free]. Make sure to write it down, come back here and let me know what it said. its probably not a big deal

believe me..i had this problem before with my sorento 06. send to garage many time but the problem kept coming after 2 weeks.. but i found my self that whenever ESC light is on ,engine became sluggish. what will you do is to use a cruise control until you reach home. after that..at front passenger side, next to door, open the side cover,,you will see a bunch of cable inside..with your engine on and press the pedal lightly..pull that cables with your hand...and you will found your engine revs.

if your MAF is good.. Than check your air intake boot.. If that is good spray some carb clean around the intake... If your motor stumbles while spraying carb clean than you have a bad intake gasket or cracked intake.... or a serious vac leak. hope this helps
