This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the third generation (2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and maybe also the updated 2019 and 2020 model years) Kia Sedona minivan in checking or changing a blown fuse or a faulty relay in either the engine bay or the interior passenger compartment electrical panels.

Owners of other Kia or Hyundai models such as the Grand Carnival, Sorento, Sportage, Niro, Soul, K900, Stinger, Cadenza, Optima, Rio, Forte, Genesis, Sonata, Ioniq, Santa Fe, Tucson, Elantra and Accent may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

This 2015 Kia Sedona minivan is equipped with Micro2 fuses that can be purchased at any auto parts store or online at Amazon.

Attention: Please check your old fuses before you buy new ones! Some older model years might use standard mini blade fuses or possibly even Low Profile fuses.

No tools are needed to access and replace the fuses or relays in either of the electrical blocks.

Pull Off Fuse Box Cover

Engine Bay Fuse Panel
The first two steps are to open the hood and then move to the right (driver) side of the engine bay.

The square black plastic electrical fuse box is located on the right side of the engine air filter box and behind the 12V automotive battery.

Firmly push in the release tab on the front edge of the fuse box cover on the right (driver) side.

Then push in the release tab on the rear edge of the fuse box cover located closer to the left.

Gently lift the cover off the fuse box.

Turn over the cover to view the fuse location diagram.

There is also another fuse location diagram in your owner's manual.

The white plastic fuse puller tool is located near the front left (passenger side) corner of the engine bay fuse block.

Lift the fuse puller tool out of its socket.

Pinch the end of the tool to open the jaws.

The interior passenger compartment fuse block is located behind a plastic access cover on the lower part of the dashboard on the driver side.

Interior Fuse Block
Place Tool Over Old Fuse
Pull Out Old Fuse
Place the jaws of the tool over the old fuse that you'd like to check or change.

Pull the old fuse straight out of the socket.

Hold Fuse Up To Light Bulb
Push In New Fuse
Replace Fuse Puller Tool
To check the condition of the old fuse, hold it up to a light source.

If the thin metal strip in the translucent plastic center of the old fuse appears to be burnt and broken, the old fuse is most likely "blown" and should be replaced with a new one.

If the metal bar or "band" in the middle of the old fuse appears to be intact, the fuse might still be good.

Since new fuses are so inexpensive, it should still replaced with a new fuse as part of your electrical problem troubleshooting process.

Push a new Micro2 fuse straight into the socket.

The new fuse should the same amperage rating (e.g. 5A, 10A, 15A, 20A).

Make sure that the new fuse is fully seated in the socket.

Replace the fuse puller tool into its mount at the front left corner of the engine bay fuse block.

If you suspect that a relay is faulty, the easiest way to troubleshoot it is to simply replace it with a new relay. You could also test the old relay with a digital multimeter tool.

Push On Fuse Box Cover
Re-Insert Tabs Top Edge
Pop In Bottom Edge
Line up the square black plastic cover over the engine bay fuse panel.

Push the cover down into place to secure the two retaining clips.

Then replace the interior passenger compartment electrical panel access cover.

Re-insert the top edge first and then gently snap in the bottom edge.

Test the electrical component you were having problems with such as the horn, radio, windshield wipers, power windows, headlights, tail lights or the power driver seat.

If you are still having the same issue, there may be a shorted somewhere or the component itself needs to be replaced.
