2005 Kia Sedona VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL:CABLES NHTSA Campaign #05V329000
Summary: On certain mini vans, freezing conditions can cause water on the throttle cable to freeze during normal operation. Resistance to movement of the throttle cable can occur when the driver lifts their foot off of the gas pedal.

Actions: Dealers will modify a protective sleeve around the throttle cable. The recall began on August 15, 2005. Owners may contact Kia at 1-800-333-4542. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #05V329000 »
