Vehicles Affected: Approximately 94,000 model-year 2015-18 Kia Sedona minivans equipped with manually adjustable front passenger seats
The Problem: Over time, the occupant detection system wiring harness located underneath the front passenger seat may break from the seat being occupied. If a child is in a child seat in the front seat, a broken ODS wiring harness won’t prevent the front passenger airbag from deploying in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury to the child.
The Fix: Dealers will remove the wire harness clip to prevent the wiring harness from breaking. If the harness is found damaged, the front passenger seat cushion will be replaced. Both repairs will be done for free.
What Owners Should Do: Kia will begin notifying owners March 19. Owners can call the automaker at 800-333-4542, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
