door will not close and door open signal stays on when door is closed
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.

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.

MY SLIDING DOOR HANDLES ARE GETTING HARD TO OPEN THE OTHER DAY I OPENED THE SLIDING DOOR ON DRIVERS SIDE AND THE LATCH THAT LOCKS THE DOOR BROKE TOOK IT TO A KIA DEALER TO BE TOLD THE PART WAS 51 DOLLARS AND IM GONNA NEED TO REPLACE BOTH OF THEM CAUSE THE ONE ON THE PASSENGERS SIDE IS GOING TO THEN THEY TELL ME THEY HAVE TO ORDER THE PARST IT WILL TAKE ABOUT FOUR DAYS AND TO INSTALL THEM ITS GOING TO COST ME 300 DOLLARS SO TOTAL I WOULD BE PAYING OVER 400 DOLLARS TO FIX TWO LATCHES. I TOLD THEM TO ORDER THE PARTS AND I WILL FIGURE OUT HOW TO INSTALL THEM MYSELF IM NOT GONNA PAY 300 DOLLARS WHEN I CAN GOOGLE IT AND DO IT MYSELF.

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.

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.
