Question about 2004 Kia Sedona

Open Question

2004 kia sedona climate controls stopped working. This past week the head lights flickered every time we stepped on the brake or turned oin any accesory. Then for no reason all the lights fan a/c and radio turned off and the van almost stalled thewn finally did stall at a stop light. I put it in neutral and it started right up. Had the battery checked and the charging system and was told they are okey. They did say that the alternator should be upgraded to a higher amp one. Any way... The main problem is that the climate controls are not working at all now. All fuse are good.

Hi,

There has been known issues with the alternator on several year/versions of this car. If memory serves me right, there was a TSB for the alternator either over or undercharging.The TSB (Technical Service Bulletin) specifies replacing the alternator and re-flashing the PCM.(Powertrain Control Mudule).

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: 2004 Kia Sedona wont start but i can hear starter.

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

Drop the fuel tank and replace the fuel pump. Filter is attached to the fuel pump. Sounds like the fuel pump is failing.

02 KIA Sedona keeps blowing headlights


have the operating voltage checked.. your regulator may be overcharging and sending 18-or more volts through the system..the max should be 16..most run at 14.5 -16..if thats the case a new alternator is needed..

Brake lights not working on a kia sedona 2003 model


If the bulbs are good it could be 2 things a fuse if they do not light up at all, second if the "parking light" are working just not the brighter portion of the brake lights as in when you hit the brakes it is going to be your brake switch that is located on the brake pedal almost the whole way up. Hope that helps you

Break lights stay on when head lights are used on my 52 reg kia sedona think its a short but where do i look


Check the brake switch out, it's located under your brake pedal arm. When brakes are applied the arm compresses the switch and functions the brake lights. I'm not saying change it, but see if the button is stuck on top of the switch. Also check the circuit with a meter, it should not have power flow until the switch is made.

All four of my marker lights do not turn on when I put the lights on. Head lights, brake and turn signals all work. All fuses are good. Where to start?


If the fuses are all good then you likely need to replace the headlight switch or the harness to it could have some burnt pins in the plug to the switch.
