Need to open the hood of your Kia? This guide provides instructions on how to open a Kia hood.
Applicable to model years 2005 to present.
- Park the vehicle. Turn off the ignition. Engage the parking brakes.
- Locate the hood release underneath the dash. Pull the lever until you hear the hood pop open. Next, you need to release the hood safety latch at the front of the hood.
- Release and lift the hood. Move to the front of your Kia Sedona and locate the hood release. Pull/Press the hood latch, then lift the hood.
- Lift and secure the hood. If your Kia Sedona is equipped with a hydraulic hood lift, the hood will stay in the up position on its own. Otherwise, use the hood prop rod to secure the hood.
