Question about 2002 Kia Sedona
Our van started not keeping good charge; lights going dim, cd player going crazy, air bag,brake,and battery lights came on and stayed on. Battery dies every other day. So our mechanic checked the alternator, the battery, everything from a-z. We narrowed it to the computer. Put the new in today with a new battery and the lights are still on and still won't stay charged. HELP!
There is a TSB for this problem. See www.kiatechinfo.com and you will need to register but there is a lot of info. Part of the fix is the new alternator has a smaller 55 mm pulley instead of the original 65 mm pulley. When you order the new alternator, tell them it has to have the new 55 mm pulley. I ordered 2 and they both came with the old 65. NAPA with a machine shop in house was able to put my old pulley on the new alternator since they keep coming with the old one. If you still have trouble after replacing the battery and alternator you may have a problem in the circuit.

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.
