2006 Kia Sedona LX won't start. Lights and radio work, but no reaction from starter - i.e. nothing happens when I turn the key.

Asked by May 10, 2013 at 11:32 AM about the 2006 Kia Sedona LX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Occasionally, the van won't crank.  Turn the key - nothing.  Lights, radio etc. all work fine.  In a
few instances, we slammed the hood and then then the engine would crank and start w/o
problem.  That is no longer working.

sounds like the starter/solenoid is bad or your not getting signal to the starter. check signal to the starter first, with the key turned to the start position you should have power on the small wire going to the solenoid on the side of the starter. if you do you have a bad starter/solenoid. if not there is a problem elsewhere.
