2006 Kia Sedona: Update on the CD Changer
August 29, 2006
You might remember that the Sedona's in-dash CD changer stopped playing CDs in mid-July. Inserting any type of CD results in this error message, and if you keep trying to load it, the player eventually spits the CD out. Unfortunately, Kia of Long Beach initially ordered the wrong stereo head unit (the non-Infinity variety) -- which is why Dan couldn't take the van on his Oregon road trip. Since then, the dealer has reordered the correct head unit and we hope to have it installed soon.
In completely unrelated news, I've taken a shine to the Sedona's keyless remote. It's said that the best way to pick out lemons, limes or watermelons is to choose specimens that are heavy for their size, and that describes this minivan's remote. It feels substantial in your hand like a VW or Audi remote, and I have to admit that it has a psychological effect on me: Whenever I pick up the fob, for a split second, I start to believe I'm walking up to a luxury vehicle. Then, it turns out a pretty good minivan is waiting for me instead.
