My back door on my kia sedona will not open - 2004 Kia Sedona

  • Anonymous Sep 19, 2008

    I had the problem on my 2002 Sedona. After dismantling the rear hatch, I found that the plastic handle itself has a steel rod throught it with a spring wound around it. It was rusty, preventing the handle from turning. I squirted oil on the rod, and it loostened up, and is working. This is the handle you lift to open the rear hatch.

I have a similar problem with my kia sedona 2003. The problem was that one of the two rods holding the back door won't retract. I unscrew the bolt of that rod and replaced the rod. You could find replacement at surplus shops or buy at the kia dealer. One thing, is that the latest replacement rods looks different and somewhat has different orientation with the retraction mechanism. I attached it and the back door of my sedona is working fine.

The cable leading from the handle to the mechanism is stretched or if it has a rod it has come unhooked. Or it could be a bad mechanism or somthing caught in it from inside as if it fell down across the striker as the hatch was being closed.

There are 2 catalytic converters on Sedonas, it sounds like the rear one is failing. These can be replaced with generic universal ones that can be found on ebay, don't let the dealership tell you otherwise. Any number of shops would install it for you if you brought it in to them, if you don't want to install it yourself.

Despite the fact that it may be running fine right now, It sould be replaced, however. A faulty catalytic converter will result in the vehicle's computer adjusting fuel/air mixtures, timing, etc. etc. in an effort to rectify what is percieves to be an inefficient engine operation.

SOURCE: rightside interior door handle not opening door

It could mean the rod connecting the handle to the latch has broken. You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. and you can access the innards of the door

You'd have to remove the door panel. Probably impossible while the door is closed, may have to cut it. Ask a bodyshop or dealer for advice.
