Question about 2005 Kia Sedona LX
Lights are flickering at idle but flickering stops at higher speed. Also rough idling at stop but goes away when accelerating. Speedometer worked fine but after some work done at a local shop it stopped working. Told many times but again to no avail. But he likes the $ 6000.00 he got.
Voltage regulator is located in the alternator. You do not have a speedo cable it is a sensor located on the transmission above the passenger CV shaft. There is a revised alternator for your van along with a PCM flash upgrade. You might have to take it to a dealer to get the flash done.

It's not the fuse. You need to jump start the diagnostic cable. First you need a battery of 9v and short the + and - terminal to the diagnostic cable. Then you will see smoke. After that it should work fine.

Well I would verify the trany speed gear is "ate up" first, theres only one 10mm bolt that holds it in place, sure the area around the speedo cable is very CLEAN before removing it any dirt in there would make things bad to say the least. If you pull the cable out the gear is attached to the cable if it looks good then put it back together and remove your cluster (speedo and other gauges inside) I suggest you pick up a repair manual at a big auto store on MK1-MK2 vdubs (82-92) to explain how to remove speedo cable from back of cluster its kinda of tricky getting your fingers back there and pressing it together to get it to release. Once out drive the car and see if that cable is turning from the inside if it is then its your speedo gauge that is faulty. Grab a cluster from a scrap yard, if that cable is NOT turning then the gearing inside the trany is messed up which would mean taking the trany apart to repair it. If that was the case you would be cheaper to replace the whole trany with a used one. Good luck

This has happened on our van multiple times. Through some internet searches I have found a solution that works.
Go to your van and, with the ignition off, press and hold the trip reset button. You will see 'Sof' and perhaps some diagnostic test numbers will show up on odometer; the unit will perform a self-test, and the system will do a reset and should it should operate normally.
