It doesn't seem to be able to be fixed. Same as you, after all the repair it comes right back. Mine stays on for a while like a month or two and goes off for a while and then comes back on. So I just ignore it. It is not a very good advice, lol
#4589 of 4592 2004 Sedona Intake Manifold caused engine to blow
Jul 31, 2012 (6:24 am)
My 2004 Sedona with just 78,000 miles blew the motor because the Intake Manifold Valve (butterfly) dislodged itself and was completely ingested by the engine pistons"... and "all that remains were bits of metal shavings".
I found out that the 2002-2005 Sorento with same size engine (3.5, 6cyl.) has a recall: TSB#073/NHTSA ID#10025153 on exactly this same issue.
AUTOWORLD KIA (DEALER#7096963), East Meadow, New York claims this is not a "Power Train" Warrenty and/or Recall Issue even though we are original owners with impeccable maintainence records.
REPAIR QUOTE: $8,371.00 plus $35/day storage from June 18 (45 days and counting).
Any advice appreciated.

have a 2006 kia Sedona and like to know if there is a way to reset the computer so I can operate the windows without using the ignition key (like when the engine is off and there is no key in the ignition switch)?

Got an 03. In mine, the SRS light is on because the seat pinched the wiring in 2 under the seat. I was told there was a recall but it only applies to when it happens to the driver's side. On a trip, there was a very high pitched whine followed by the passenger side rear wheel coming off! They said this was a recall item too, but when I called to set up the appointment, they said my manufacture date was not covered. I resurfaced the axle and put in new bearings and seals. My neighbor has an 07 sedona, I'm over there a couple of times a month fixing something on it. Forget 'em. I'm going back to FORD as soon as financially feasible.

Liked the 03 Sedona a lot at first, but besides what has happened so far, with the door handles breaking , the rear wheel coming off, and all the other stuff, there is always some sort of excuse at KIA's corporate customer service as to why kia's recalls don't apply to my kia. If they would support their product instead of leaving their customers out-in-the-cold on stuff, (except those whose A/C has gone out) I wouldn't mind buying another one, but as it stands, no way in heck a new KIA will ever grace (wait, did I say "grace"? I meant clutter up) my driveway. hi-ho, hi-ho it's back to Ford we go!!!
