      I was able to change mine out in less than 4 hours. I removed the hoses, removed the glove compartment part of the dash, and cut the hump out where it resides in the air delivery system, pulled out the old one, cleaned out any liquid, slid the new one in, attached the hoses, glued the hump that I cut out back in place with silicone sealer and put the dash back together.
      I did this a few months ago and it has no issues and is working fine.
      Otherwise, look at spending 500-1000 for someone to change it out for you....they have to pull the whole dash!!!

      If you need some pictures, I can get some for you.

    Where is the ignition coil located?

      You have to remove the engine cover, they you will see 4 of those secured by a bolt or a couple of bolts. Pull them out to remove the spark plugs.

      However, you might have something which are called coil packs in which they are bunched up on the right side of the engine.

      The a/c compressor should be check, it is possible that your a/c clutch isn't functioning well. Also check the condition of your a/c low pressure switch.

      First confirm that the aluminum inlet pipe to the evaporator is cold or not and if the compressor is turning on or not.

    My 05 Kia Sedona drivers door lock
    My 05 Kia Sedona's driver door lock buzzes loudly whenever I lock any door. The van has electric locks, but not keyless. What's causing this buzzing?
    • Spoon Sports

      Sounds like the electric motor that controls the lock arm is possibly sticking and grinding on itself causing the buzzing noise. Or it could be something inside the panel has created an issue for the arm and motor to move freely.

    I recently purchased this vehicle and noticed that the left blinker blinks much faster than the right.
    I was told that it indicated a burnt out bulb somewhere in the vehicles exterior. I have assured that all lights are operational and it still does this. Any suggestions its like a blinker on speeeeeedddd. Thanks so much. New Kia Owner

      The way a blinker works is there is a circuit breaker. Breakers use a bi-metal strip, and as the metals heat, they expand at a different rate, and that causes the metal to bend and break the circuit. The heat comes from electrical current going through the circuit. Both sides should be on the same breaker, so if one side is blinking faster than the other, there may be a wiring problem that is causing more current draw on that side. - LEW CARite from

      Should I try and replace the breaker anyways. Mine didn't come with an owners manual so I'm not sure where to find it or which one to change.

      I don't think it's the breaker. If it was the breaker, it should do the same thing for both sides. I think it's a wiring fault. -Lew CARite from
