Question about Kia Sedona

1 Answer

Where is the anti theft module located at in a 2005 Kia Sedona? Van won't start and read online a lot of complaints about Kia vehicles is the anti theft module kept the vehicle from starting.

Already changed the starter, new battery, and replaced the crankshaft sensor (that code was coming up on a diagnostics reader). On a Kia website the anti theft module was recalled but I bought my car used so I don't know if it was ever taken care of.

The anti-theft function is part of programing in the ECU. there is no external module. The ignition switch is not reading the key. Do not hang a bunch of trinkets and keys from your key ring. 2 keys at the most. See if the dealer can make you a new key. You may have to replace the ignition switch as well. Perform OBDII scan for anti-theft codes.

    Would I have to go to a kia dealer if I buy a whole new ignition lock cylinder assembly? And I replaced the crankshaft sensor but the diagnostics reader is still bringing up codes for that sensor, is there something else that would bring that code up?

    The crank sensor is what triggers Ignition. Air gap has to be correct for signal That is the no Spark problem. If not correct engine will not run. Reinvestigate the crank sensor.

2005 kia sedona 76,000 overheats the engine


My 2005 KIA Sedona started overheating in Winter 2009/2010 and was loosing antifreeze. No leaks from the heater hoses or radiator hose. No pressure in the radiator either.

I had found a site where folks were discussing the same things and someone brought up the rear heater. Apparently KIA has run steel hoses running under the chasis to the rear of the van and these rot.

I looked under the rear at the wheel well and located the lines and they were wet with antifreeze. I traced the lines to the firewall and found where the lines were connected to the coolant system and bypassed the rear heater lines.

I then filled up the radiator and overflow tank with antifreeze and started the van. I rocked the van to get air to move out of the lines and kept adding antifreeze until it was full. then used the overflow tank to top it off.

Hope this helps.
