SOURCE: air bag light

if the air bag stays on that means you have a problem with the air bag system, and you need to have it diagnose, but if you just bought the sedona from a used car dealer they have to fix it, it is part of the safety inspection requred by law

SOURCE: my kia sedona wont start just click when turned on

Couple of things to try.

1. Check that the battery connections are both clean and tight on the battery.
2. Check water level in the battery is above the plates that you can see in the filler holes.
(Handle the battery with care as the water in the battery has been charged and becone sulphuric acid which will burn your skin. Do not get this in your eyes.)

3. Turn the headlights on then start the vehicle, and if:
a) the lights dim the battery is not connecting properly or faulty, or:
b) the lights stay on full it would the starter motor relay or solenoid (part of the starter motor).

SOURCE: Kia sedona. Ticking sound from

my 05 sedona was doing the same thing. Turns out the oil grade was to high. You need to get the oil changed with 5 - 30 grade. Add moa treatment and then drive in 2nd around your block keeping it between 2,500 & 3,000 rpms when you drive around the block. That will bleed your lifters and should fix your problem.

SOURCE: Kia sedona. Knocking sound from Engine

I assume by now you have this problem fixed, but if not, or for the benefit of others looking for help, try replacing the coil on the #5 cyl as well as the injector. Ours did same thing, except fault code was on #2 cyl, so I got the parts from local parts store for about $150 total, and completed the repairs myself on my wife's 2003 Sedona. Now i can start on the rear heater issues, the knocking sound coming from the LF tire area while in motion, and replacing all brake pads. 92,000 on the odo. I'll spend the extra $ and go with the Honda Odyssey next time.

Kia sadonna ran fin all morning but when I shut it off it won't start now, dash lights come on and when I turn the key it ticks, could it be the batterie,

Have your battery tested. If the fans ran all morning, too cool down your van it probably killed the battery. Also keep an eye on your temp gauge, and make sure it's not overheating. The temp sensor for the fans could also be faulty ; causing them to run longer than they should when you turn the van off.

2009 Ford Flex when started first thing on a cold morning it ticks/knocs really really loud, once it warms up the ticking goes away to a very light tick. The dealership ruled out an exhaust manifold leak....

It does sound like a valve lifter problem to me also. It should be covered under warranty. It's a mechanical failure of a component of the drivetrain. Ask them to show you the specific exclusion if they say it's not a warranty problem.Powertrain warranty is 60 months/60,000 miles ( which ever comes first).

My 2006 Kia Optima is making a clicking sound. It has been doing this for over 6k miles now, so I don't think it's that bad. I drive fast and hard, but has not gotten worse. Help??????

I assume we are talking about a motor noise. A lot of people assume a clicking sound is a valve noise. Most of the time a loud clicking noise is actually a bad exhaust gasket. An air leak on an automotive exhaust manifold sounds like a loud tick or click. Try changing the gaskets on both sides of the exhaust manifold . This should take care of the clicking.

When I sart my 05 Sedona in the morning and put it in to gear it makes a ratteling noise and then when warmed up its fine.... Is this something major?

If it happens for about 10 seconds when it's cold but doesn't happen when the engine is started again until it has sat for several hours then it's your timing chain tensioners. Hyundai/Kia have a TSB for this, see the dealership.

Air won't blow cold

Our Sedona had a similar problem, Turned out that the pipes to the rear heater had corroded and were leaking, caused some overheating which blew hot air even when the A/C was on.
