First, if you hear a grinding sound while driving, the starter would never make any sound after it has started a vehicle. I would guess it could be the alternator, and it does make grinding noises when it goes out, and it leaves a dead battery in the middle of driving. Also your dash lights dim to nothing quickly while driving when this happens. There is a great video on youtube how to get the alternator out of the van, very tricky to do, so google the make/model and task to find the video to watch before trying to replace it.

Starter clicking, not enough power to turn motor over. Check the battery, make sure charge is full. If it is, your starter is shot, replace it

Hi,

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.

SOURCE: 2004 Kia Sedona trying to find the starter.

it is located on the drivers side underneath the van. you have to remove it from the underside of the car. you will need a 17 millimeter socket or wrench. Remove the ground cable before attempting to remove the starter.

SOURCE: 2004 Kia Sedona wont start but i can hear starter.

if the starter is revving very slowly it is the battery, charge battery. if not, It can be three things happing. 1 no spark 2 no fuel 3 no crank signal or the car computer is bad- you will need to unplug one of the spark wires and remove the spark plug and put the spark plug in the spark plug wire boot, and touch the spark plug on any metal on the car and have some start the car. donot touch the spark plug itself and see if there is a spark. if spark is bright, then it is not spark plug and wires but if no or spark is not bright, check the spark plug wires by applying a little bit of water on the spark plug wire and take a 12v test light, connect the clap to ground and and have some one to crank the vehicle, touch allover the spark plug wires with the tip of the test light, if you see spark, replace the wires and change the plugs.. they are not good. if spark is present, check for fuel by removing any one of the spark plugs and see if it is wet. if wet fuel pump is ok but if not go look for the fuel pump fuse and relay. is fuse blown, replace, check the relay resistor with a volt meter. it should be around 40 to 80 ohm. if everything is good from this point check the fuel pump itself by disconnecting the connector to the pump and apply 12v and ground using jumper wires or some wires to the fuel pump if you donot hear the pump,replace pump. if you, the crank signal or computer may be the problem

I have a Kia Sedona van 2002 . I stoped to fill it up with gas but i left it running after i filled it up full the van started acting funny and died. I started it back up ran alright then the rpms go up...


Could be a sensor , but without testing , this would be a guess ! Have seen TPS - throttle position sensors on chysler products do this , Mass air flow sensors on GM vehicles , plus bad IAC - idle air control motor . Don't think you would like to replace all these parts , your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop . Have it tested !

If you get a click noise when you try to star the van it's probably the starter went bad.

It sounds as though you have ignition. Try a shot of starter fluid an see if the engine tries to start. If it sounds like it wants to start, you can at least narrow it down to the fuel delivery system. Let me know.

Location of starter in kia sedona


Hello,the starter on your Kia Sedona van is behind and under the exhaust manifold,(the one closest to front of vehicle behind the radiator/fan shroud). It is accessed from under the vehicle,the starter is held in place by two 14mm bolts,there also may be a heat shroud covering the starter motor itself ,protecting the starter from excessive heat from the exhaust manifold. A Hyundai Entourage van is set up the same way as your Sedona is. Your van is probably equipped with either a 3.3 or 3.8 liter V6 motor.

Sounds like you might have bad O2 sensors, leaking fuel injector O rings or a bad fuel pressure regulator. Check that the vacuum hose to the pressure regulator is connected and no cracks or holes in it. Any check engine light?

Abs and brake,battery lights won,t turn off .


I have the same van with similar problems. I had a small leak from the lower left corner of the windshield that dripped down into my fuse box when we had a heavy rain. My defrost light and dome lights got stuck on. We had to remove the fuses and let the box dry out. We had to take it to someone to find the leak and caulk the windshield. I don't know if this might help but you might look into this????? Good luck.
