2005 Kia Sedona ProblemsStarting difficulty due to defective anti-theft control module
In cold, wet climates, the driver and passenger door handles may stick, jam, or not return to their rest position; improved handle release cables are available to correct this issue.
After the vehicle has been operated with electrical loads (lights, air conditioning), a weak alternator can cause starting difficulties. In some cases, the original alternator could not sufficiently charge the battery; Kia released a new alternator which can correct this concern.

2005 Kia Sedona RecallsGas Pedal May Stick in Freezing Conditions
In freezing conditions, water on the throttle cable may freeze, creating resistance to movement. The cable may stick and prevent the engine from returning to idle, causing the vehicle to maintain speed or accelerate. This can occur without warning and could cause a crash. Dealers will modify a protective sleeve around the cable to fix the issue. The recall began August 15, 2005. The Kia recall number is SC-051.
On certain models equipped with alloy wheels, water may accumulate around the rear hub caps and damage the outer rear wheel bearings. The wheel bearings could fail without warning, which could result in a crash. Dealers will replace the rear hub caps and replace the rear outer bearings and/or hub assembly as needed. The recall began on June 13, 2005. The Kia recall number is SC-049.
