I brought this van used from a repair shop I did a have check engine light and replaced senor that was not working and the light remais on but I read that if you disconnect the battery for 30 seconds the light should stay off. My dash board lights have never come on yet. lol Is this a repairable item or do have to replace the Dash Assembly?
When battery is unhooked the key will go to lock position and can be removed. When battery is reconnected key can not be removed and is stuck in the accessory position. Do you have any idea what the cause may be?
We had disabled the automatic door opening feature last year. Now the door wont open manually. What should I look for.
I had service garage recharge my A/C 200 miles from home. 60 miles from home the A/C quit and the engine overheated. Once cool I removed the radiator cap and saw no water is moving across the radiator. I towed it home, removed the thermostat and saw water moving across the radiator. Thank God there were no bubbles in the water and my oil is old and dark. I think the water pump is working. The fans can work with direct power, but do not with normal connections. The relay connection next to the power supply on the Fan Controller (25385-4D0900) was corroded. I cleaned it. the connector on top of the compressor was found lose and rubbed in half on the Compressor pulley.
1st- I need to find where in the wire harness the power stops to the cooling fans. Is there a way to physically check the fan controller with a meter? Is there a way to check the in-line relays?
2nd what do I do to check the connector of the a/c compressor?
3rd -After the cooling fans are running, what should I check first on the A/C issue?
had my car in the shop and was told the single black wire that connects to the module was burned out that is why the air comes on and off but was told only Kia would have the part cannot locate this by looking on line.

I recently bought a used 2006 Kia Sedona with 94,000 miles on it. Now I realize that my timing chain is defiantly loose at startup for a few seconds until enough hydraulic pressure builds up on the tensioner. Now that I know the problem should I have the engine pulled and have the timing chain and the tensioner replaced or is this an issue that can be ignored for 50,000 miles?
Scanner reads the following codes PO171-bank 1 to lean, PO172-bank 1 to rich, PO174-bank 2 to lean, PO-175-bank 2 to rich, P2187-bank 1 to lean, P2188-bank 1 to rich, P2189-to lean at idle, P2199- to rich at idle. Replaced air filter, checked for vacuum leaks(none)and cleaned throttle body and MAF sensor, not sure where to go from there, any help would be greatly appreciated.
Recently serviced it has come back with this tapping. It has been sent back and had the engine flushed and injectors cleaned but it is still there. Please can someone help? Is it coincidental it's started after a service?
Kia wants to charge me $391 to repair my fuel door which needs the latch to be replaced. Is that a fair estimate

The Kia wouldn't start one day. We towed it to the shop. First, we were told we didn't put oil in the car, and that is why it didn't start. Then we were told it wasn't the oil, it was the starter. We fixed the starter, and we brought it home. 3 days later we were told it wouldn't start. We brought it back, and now we are being told it is the IPN. What is the IPN and how much should it cost to replace? Also, does it seem to anyone else that the mechanic is just guessing?
