That’s no good! If the sliding doors won’t open on your 2008 Kia Sedona, there could be several possible reasons for this unfortunate failure, including:
- The battery voltage is too low for the power sliding door module to work properly
- Fuse failure
- Latch assembly defect
- Motor assembly defect
- Wiring failure
- Malfunction of anti-pinch strip
- Lack of proper lubrication
These are only a few common causes of why the sliding doors on your 2008 Sedona won’t open. We’d recommend taking your minivan to a mechanic or your local Kia dealership to check out each one of these potential issues and receive a proper diagnosis.
If you intend to drive your Kia Sedona for much longer, consider upgrading your car insurance policy with mechanical breakdown insurance. This optional coverage will cover breakdowns and repairs that aren’t caused by an accident.
If you’re wondering, isn’t that the same as an extended car warranty? Not exactly—there is a difference between mechanical breakdown insurance vs. extended warranty. An extended warranty comes with your newly purchased vehicle and lasts for a certain period of time, while MBI covers your vehicle without an expiration date.
