Question about 2004 Kia Sedona
We bought our '04 Sedona in 2007. She's worked great for us. Yesterday, I shut the van off and after it was shut off, the radio made a sound almost like a cd was jammed in it. There was a cd in it, but I hadn't been listening to it, and this happened after I shut the van off. Weird. So when I got back in, turned the van on, I tried to turn on the radio and nothing. Wouldn't light up anything.
After reading that you have had this issue also, I tried the reset button. I thought that was to manually eject a cd while the radio was off. I guess I was wrong. My radio now works. I left the bent paperclip in the van for future use.
We do have an extended warranty. I am hoping that it covers this problem. So if this happens again, we will get it replaced. Otherwise, the paperclip has a new home in the van!
Thank you for posting this! I'm glad I found it. :)

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

SOURCE: Radio Anti-Theft turned on.
i had the same vehicle and my code was 8040. What really bothered me was this car was sooooo cheap, the stereo was cheap, the whole integrity of the car is cheap, however they have an anti theft on the stereo. ha ha lol! Don't spend any money trying to figure it out, either pick up a new stereo or give the car away!

The first thing to check in this case would be the bulb itself. Remove the 13 plastic body screws retaining the the black plastic shroud at the front of the engine compartment. Next, remove the 2 10mm bolts retaining the lamp assembly. Gently work the assembly loose and pull it away from the vehicle; make sure to keep the assembly supported if you don't disconnect all of the wiring harnesses attached to it. Squeeze the clamp on the wiring harness to the turn signal bulb and remove the harness. Turn the socket assembly to remove the socket and bulb. Gently twist and remove the bulb. You should be able to see if the wire filaments are still continuous.
If the bulb is good, look at the inside of the socket. There is a little copper strip that runs down the side. If it is not sticking out making a " V " shape where the point would touch the side of the bulb, that's generally gonna be the problem. The point of the "V" completes the ground circuit for the bulb. Using a paper clip with a small hook, a precision screwdriver, or something else thin that can give you leverage, GENTLY pull at the strip until it comes out enough to make a good contact. You could also get a replacement socket from the dealership. Ask about rate of failure on this part and other things that would bring about images of recalls, maybe you'll get it free but probably not.
