If the bumping noise started around the same time that the Speedometer started acting up, then I'd say they are related. I'm not sure about the Kia setup, but if the speed sensor is telling the on board computer (ECM) one thing, but the wheels are doing something else, the computer is going to try to make the car compensate for what it sees from the speed sensor...

I had this problem on an Explorer.

With my Explorer, the problem was the worm gear on the inside of the transmission... but other things in that area are the Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) and the Drive gear for the speedometer...

The way I isolated the problem was to take out the speedometer gear and hook it to a cordless dril (electricOdometer and Spedometer not working on 2003 Kia - 2_bing.gif drills might spin it too fast). Turn the ignition to the "on" position, but do not start the car2_bing.gif. Have someone watch the speedometer from inside the vehicle as you spin it.

If the speedometer gauge works and stays constant, then you know your problem is with the drive gear or the worm gear on the inside of the transmission.

If it doesn't work, then you know that there is an electrical issue with the speed sensor circuit or something in the gauge cluster is broken.

Good luck

Loud noise when power steering is on full lock Kia Sedona 2004


There may be 2 possible causes for this problem. THe first may be cv koints failing or excessive turn angle of the wheel which would be binding up the cv joint. This can be checked by a wheel aligner testing the maximum turn allowed at the wheels.. The second is that power steering pumps should never be operated at tight full turn. To umnderstand this consider this. Power steering pumps are only under load when you move the steering wheel ans if you turn a bit the pump moves the wheels and then the pressure is let off until you move the wheel again. You have to move the wheel to shut off a valve in the box that allows the pump to build up pressure. When you hold the wheel hard against the stops at full turn you are making the pump work at maximum pressure and if you continue to do this you can expect premature pump failure. Jusat turn until you hit the stops then ease off a fraction. The noise I expect is the pressure relief valve in the pump is releasing rapidly and it probably sounds like a hammer hitting something metalic. Try the alignment and try not holding the turn hard at hard full turn. Haveing the pump pressure checked might also point to a fault

Usually if both stop working the speed sensor in the transmission has failed, but the check engine light should also be on.
