Question about Kia Sedona

Check engine light kia sedona

I have a 2004 Kia sedona that I bought used last month. The check engine light came on a couple days later. I took the van to Autozone to have the codes read & it came back with PO431. I took it back to the dealer & they replaced the o2 sensor & reset the codes. The light came on again a couple days later. They have since replaced the o2 sensor again but the light came on again within five minutes of leaving dealership. I called & was told it's a southern car & I live in the North, the fuel mixtures are different & the memory was reset as well as the code memory. I was told to drive it as is & it should reset itself. It's been two weeks now & the light is still on. What is my next step?

There are 2 catalytic converters on Sedonas, it sounds like the rear one is failing. These can be replaced with generic universal ones that can be found on ebay, don't let the dealership tell you otherwise. Any number of shops would install it for you if you brought it in to them, if you don't want to install it yourself.

Despite the fact that it may be running fine right now, It sould be replaced, however. A faulty catalytic converter will result in the vehicle's computer adjusting fuel/air mixtures, timing, etc. etc. in an effort to rectify what is percieves to be an inefficient engine operation.

replace your gas cap and clear codes, then wait and see if light comes back on, if it does you have a more serious problem like a fuel tank leak or a defective fuel tank pressure sensor.

Check engine light came on my 2007 KIA Sedona, I'm at 96000 miles is this a common problem


the light doesnt come on for nothing you have to find out the code to see what causes the check engine light to come on as well if you leave your car running at gas up it will cause it to come on maybe not right away a few days later can come on so find out the code and that will tell you

2005 Kia Sedona LX - check engine light keeps coming on and one code is fuel cap. replaced and still coming on. Took to dealer and they replaced Valve-Purge Cont and Canister Close V light - light stayed...


Sounds like the dealer has more work to do on the EVAP System. Smoke test the system and check Tech Service Bulletins. You could go to a local garage,it would be cheaper.

Air bag light


if the air bag stays on that means you have a problem with the air bag system, and you need to have it diagnose, but if you just bought the sedona from a used car dealer they have to fix it, it is part of the safety inspection requred by law
