Power door will open but not shut by automatic button.
I had a heck of a time with those darn doors! The rear power doors both kept opening while driving. I turned the power off and locked doors, still they kept opening and bell dinging doors open! Eventually, took to dealer and installed 2 new door latches.

Passenger sliding door lock will not lock or unlock. I have to keep the door switch in the lock position in order to lock the vehicle. I can press the door open button from inside the van, or press the door open button from the key chain. If the door is unlocked, I cannot lock it. If it is locked, I cannon unlock it other than sliding the manual switch on the door itself.

Both doors failed and we took it in for the 60K service and this repair. Valve covers were leaking at that time as well. I re-torqued the valve covers and it hasn't leaked since(98205 miles). The passenger side door has failed again. Not covered by warranty any longer so I need to repair it this time.

Sometimes the passenger driver's side door will not close. The latch is stuck and I can't unjam it. No diagnosis or fix bc I can't afford it. Looking for a solution on the Internet to help before Monday!
Door would not close. Took it to Kia and they took my money and replaced an actuator but they eventually gave up and disabled power on the door(passenger door on driver side) and we don't use that door anymore.
