Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

Kia Sedona 2002 (Mk2), the central locking locks itself randomly, although most often whilst closing the driver's door.

I have removed the door card, checked all linkages for binding, removed and checked the door lock itself (all linkages are free and operating normally). There is no sign of waire damage or water damage.

More than likely your front driver door module has failed.  You will need to replace this module and readapt the key fobs for locking and unlocking

You mentioned you tried re-programming.So did you tried this procedure.If not,then try this procedure of reprogramming:--- The programming for a remote is as follows.

1. Open drivers door and leave open.
(in the uk that's the passenger side)
2. Lock and Unlock the drivers door using the power lock switch on door panel.
3. Insert key into the ignition.
4. Turn key to the ON and OFF position 3 times in 10 seconds. Leave key in ignition.
5. Open and close drivers door 3 times ending with door in the open position.
6. Door locks should respond by locking and unlocking.
7. Press any button on remote 2 times. Doors should then lock and unlock.
8. If programming a second remote press any button onit 2 times and door locks should lock and unlock.
9. Remove key from ignition and locks should lock and unlock again.
10. Test Remotes.------------------------
In some cases disconnecting and reconnecting the battery helps.Disconnect the battery for 15 minutes then reconnect the battery. ---------- Check out.Keep updated.Thanks.Helpmech.

-can someone tell me how to open the front passenger door on a 2002 Kia Sedona it's jammed I pulled the panel off and my pulled on the lock lever it's still not opening


My dad just had the same problem with his driver door. it turned out that a spring had broken in the lock assembly and we had to replace the spring. alternatively you could replace the entire assembly. look in the bottom of the door to make see if there is a small broken spring in the bottom. I just did a video on this so if you want to check it out it's on youtube at.

Central locking not operaiting


Was the car battery disconnected before this central locking problem.Also is the central locking system operated by remote.If yes,then is the remote battery new or old.If the battery in remote is old then try with new battery.Also if the central locking is controlled by a push button in the car then it can be the problem with push button switch .The switch on driver side is got short.It has to be checked with meter to confirm the fault.Apply a direct 12 volt external battery to the switch and check if the central locking is getting done.Also confirm if you can lock the doors manually by using a car key.If you are not able to lock the door with key manually then its faulty door latch.But if the door lock and unlock manually with out any problem then this problem is related to central locking switch or the remote.

2002 bmw 530i key does not (remotely) unlock doors or trunk but they work fine manually.


Unlock vehicle. Enter vehicle. Close driver's door. Switch ignition ON and OFF. Remove ignition key. Press and hold unlock button. Press lock button briefly 3 times within 10 seconds keeping unlock button depressed. Release unlock button. Some models: LED flashes slowly for 10 seconds. Some models: Central locking system locks and unlocks rapidly to indicate correct programming. Repeat above procedure if central locking system does not work and LED does not flash or LED flashes continuously.

Kia sedona central locking keeps locking the car has soon has you open it the locks flicker then it locks


You have a sticky motor somewhere, they tend to unlock but only half way so the motor tries to lock and unlock again, all I can suggest is get some WD40 and spray all your locks including the bootlock and all the mechanisms dont be shy with the WD40 after you have done all the locks do the keyholes etc aswell and then lock and unlock the car with the key on all locks and then lock and unlock repeatedly with the remote locking button.

Hope this helps

Dan. If you need more info about the internal door motors get back to me.

Central locking keeps locking the car. Unable to open drivers side door


Hello, we have a 2003 Kia Rio- problem as above- unlocking and then locking- only way in and out through passenger door.
This is what I have done and everything is back to normal- I hope it works for you.
1 Remove 25AMP fuse that controls door central locking from main box under the bonnet.
(AT this stage my passenger door opens- drivers side does not, the mechanism won't fully rotate)
2, Spray key with WD40 (or similar moisture repellent lubricant). Gently turn key to loosen mechanism- Partly remove key and spray lubricant into lock, have fun locking and unlocking!
3, Replace 25 amp fuse
4, Write yourself a cheque for garage labour and parts and wife brownie points!
