2006 Kia Sedona Q&A
2006 Kia Sedona Question: Kia Sedona wont start
Ok all. Heres a stumper. My wifes Kia minivan was running fine. No issues whatsoever. well maintained...you get the drift. Last week, we came home from grocery shopping. We went back out and wholla, it wont start. It wont even try to start. Battery is charged, everything on the inside works, etc. The dash looks like a christmas tree. every light is on. My solution, I pull the memory fuse from the fusebox inside the van and wholla, it starts right up. Granted the clock doesnt work, but it isnt that important. everything else works great. Today my wife comes in and tells me the check engine light is on...??? How the heck is that possible??? Any ideas??? I put the fuse back in and it wont start again. I take it out and it starts right up. Damn the Kia's, but we are too upside down in it to trade it in and too broke to take it to KIA (thanks to my salesman telling me it had a 100K mile warranty on it). What he failed to mention was it is only for the original owner. Sucks!!! I need help people. Give me some pointers. - troypknutson
The memory fuse may have been not only for your clock/radio but also is involved with your anti-theft system. When you pulled the fuse it may have shut down part of your theft system, which may have been malfunctioning and causing the no start. However, when the memory fuse is also needed for all the computers to talk to each other, your car has several, and when that happens, that will set off a Check Engine Light. I can't accurately diagnose your car from here to tell you what the exact part is that is needed. Maybe someone else will be familiar with this type of no start problem on a 2006 Sedona. - dandd
I am having the very same problems. Van was running fine and then all of a sudden get in it to go to work and will not crank. My brother is trying to find out what is wrong with it. Guess we will be calling the Kia dealer ship to see how we can get it fixed. This Monday is started not cranking at all with the key. So in the mean time he has had to run a wire from the starter or alternator (not sure which, you may know) so that when I need to crank it I have to, pop the hood and touch the wire to the battery with the key on and then the van will crank. Only work around we have right now but beats being stranded with no vehicle. You may consider doing this until you can get yours fixed as well. - whonew
