My key fob will not lock or unlock the doors to my Kia Sedona 2009 but the fob is good

Sounds like it lost it's programming (sync to car)

Googling, it says for 2006-2010:
"There is no onboard programming procedure for this vehicle. This vehicle requires special equipment be connected to the vehicle to program the keyless remote."
Which unfortunately means you have to take it to a Dealer. I'd check Craigslist for someone that has KIA specific scan tool to save $$$.

Remote and key will not unlock the door

When Your Keyless Entry Doesn't Work
  1. Make Sure the Problem Is the Remote: Chances are that your car came with a backup keyless entry device or key fob, so be sure to try that backup one first to make sure that the problem is indeed associated with the non-working key. If the second/backup key fob doesn't work, then the problem lies within the car itself. This can be due to a number of things, including a broken transmitter or memory card and faulty locking mechanisms (such as when door lock switches and motors burn out).
  2. Replace the Battery: Most automotive key fobs can simply be split open via a small slot on the side of the remote, and inside you will find a small coin battery. When a keyless entry device stops working, the first thing you should do is replace that battery, especially if that device is over a year old. The old battery will have a number on it that will indicate the battery size. If you are afraid of breaking the device, you can always bring it to a battery store and have them do it for you. eprogram the Remote: A third common problem seen with car remotes involves loss of memory. This problem is especially seen when there has been a faulty battery in the device. Fortunately, reprograming the remote is a simple process. In most cases, all you need do is enter the vehicle with your key, close the doors, and reprogram the remote by inserting the key in the ignition. Don't start the car but rather rapidly flip the key back and forth between the first and second settings until you hear a chime (similar to a door ajar signal). Press one of the remote buttons (this confirms the programming operation) and then wait for a second chime. Finally, remove the keys from the ignition, exit the vehicle and close and lock all doors, and wait around 20 seconds before trying the remote again to see if it works. Do keep in mind that the exact steps for programming a particular key fob will depend on the make, model, and year of the vehicle, so always consult your owner's manual for specific instructions.

2002 dodge Durango remote does not work after new battery was install.

Your main computer is not recognizing the remote any longer . This can be fixed by reinitializing at the dealership . In some vehicles you can reinitialize if you have another fob that works by using a brand specific series of actions such as turning the ignition on and off 3 times then locking the drivers door with the key or something like that.

Landrover alarm who stop going off

Inserting the key in the ignition and turning it on can work sometimes, but do you not have a remote for the alarm? Check the battery in the actual remote if you do have one. the alarm sounds as if (by your description) it has a back up battery, if so, youll have to locate IT and disconnect it, and that should reset the alarm. Without details, its shots in the dark here. Learn your vehicle, and contact a dealer to speak with someone who Should know his product. If your attempting to steal the vehicle as we speak, then I suggest you just run. ;O)

I have no electrical power in my car. I tried to replace my broken radio and somehow shorten the circuit breaker. How do I fix this problem?

Check your alternator fusible link. This is not on the alternator itself, but usually close to the battery. This link usually supplies voltage to the interior fuse block. You can try Googleing fusible link for your specific vehicle to find the precise location. If you are not comfortable with electrical systems, you should find someone who is, as tracing vehicle electrical systems can be quite a bear. Best of luck.
