The drivers side automatic door doesn't open at all now when you push the button inside. It acts like it is catching on something so it doesn't open. If you pull the handle, outside, it sometimes will finish opening or closing by itself. But you have to give it that pull to get it past the catching point. You never know if it will run automatically or if you have to manually pull the door open, its like it shuts off or on. If you have to open it manually inside, you really have to push against the door hard to open it up. When you pull it manually it pulls easier, outside, than if you had the auto turned off. But we don't have the problem with it popping open while driving. Just pops out of the latch sometimes when it does auto close and it beeps and lets you know the door isn't completely closed. Just started having the passenger side starting to catch a little bit now, but it does completely run automatically once you give it a little help. Haven't taken it in because the warranty is done and cant afford to pay possibly hundreds to fix it.

Sedona 6-cyl

  • 84,000 miles
Occasionally, the power sliding door on the drivers side closes and then reopens about 6-12" and has to be closed by hand. There have been several times when the same door opens all the way and it can't be closed, either by power or by hand. It will remain open until it gets ready for you to close it. The time frame varies but usually 10-15 minutes. Several times, while driving with all of the doors closed and locked, the same sliding door will open a couple of inches and I have to stop and manually close it. The van has been in the shop several times and each of the described incidents still happen from time to time. The repair technicians cannot duplicate the problem so no corrective action can be taken. It's just a matter of time before someone falls out of the vehicle while it is moving and is either severely injured of killed.

2007 Kia Sedona [xxx]normal vehicle usage. While driving the passenger side power sliding door will open without operator interaction, resulting in an unsafe condition. Typically the power siding door is closed using one of two power buttons, first in overhead console for driver the second is located next to the passenger on the body frame. Without notice the door will open while driving down the road. Occasionally the non-latched door warning will light up followed by the warning ell and then the door is open. The power button is disabled to allow the door to be closed manually and the same scenario will occur. Vehicle taken to dealership for repair, indicating that didn't have correct parts, and need to order. Must still operate vehicle in this condition. Similar incident within the past year with door on other side of vehicle, don't recall exact date or fix performed by dealership. Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

Sedona

I own a 2007 Kia Sedona minivan. I contacted the dealer concerning the rear sliding passenger doors. The doors had opened on three separate occasions during a family trip to and from Ohio in which my two granddaughters were riding in their safety seats. The van was taken in to the dealership and I was told they had no complaints concerning the doors but that they would check the doors. The dealership stated they made door adjustments to both doors. Again the doors opened and I took the vehicle back to the dealer. The gentleman stated he knew what the problem was and he would insure it was corrected. This time I was told it was a sensor. Again the door opened when I took the van back I was told "Mrs. Davis we can not find a problem with the doors I don't know what to tell you." I was so upset by his response that I contacted Kia corporate which they asked that I take the van back into the dealer. I was the modules would have to be replaced and that they will take a week to get the parts that they are working with a tech from Kia. The modules are replaced in both doors. Again I have another event of the door opening on the passenger side. I also discover my tailgate door only opens manually even though it was to be powered. I take it back to Kia and they state they had the wrong modules put in and replaced them with the correct modules. They doors opened twice on my return trip from Oklahoma on Saturday November 22, 2008 again I had to stop and close the doors. This vehicle is a real concern as I purchased this vehicle in April 2008 and I have only had it 8 months. It has placed me in fear of transporting my grandchildren who live with us. They are 5 months and 2 years of age.
