Having problems with your 2003 Kia Sedona ?

Odometer and Spedometer not working on 2003 Kia Sedona. Also a loud bumping noise when wheels are turned to the right. Are they releated? I just had they tie-rods replaced also.

Answers :

If the bumping noise started around the same time that the Speedometer started acting up, then I'd say they are related. I'm not sure about the Kia setup, but if the speed sensor is telling the on board computer (ECM) one thing, but the wheels are doing something else, the computer is going to try to make the car compensate for what it sees from the speed sensor...
\015\012I had this problem on an Explorer.
\015\012With my Explorer, the problem was the worm gear on the inside of the transmission... but other things in that area are the Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) and the Drive gear for the speedometer...
\015\012The way I isolated the problem was to take out the speedometer gear and hook it to a cordless dril (electric2_bing.gif drills might spin it too fast). Turn the ignition to the "on" position, but do not start the car2_bing.gif. Have someone watch the speedometer from inside the vehicle as you spin it.

If the speedometer gauge works and stays constant, then you know your problem is with the drive gear or the worm gear on the inside of the transmission.

If it doesn't work, then you know that there is an electrical issue with the speed sensor circuit or something in the gauge cluster is broken.
