Hello, I'm Matt - Kia tech.2 common codes for the early model Sedona.102 code is due to a bad mass air flow sensor. You need to replace it with a factory Kia sensor using only factory air fitler trust me don't use aftermarket.1159 code is due to bad Variable Intake Motor. The (VIS) is a secondary set of throttle plates in the upper intake plenum used to increase low end torque while maintaining high rpm performance. The (PCM) uses a Variable Intake Motor (VIM) to control the opening and closing of the additional throttle plates called the Intake Control Valve (ICV). At low RPM the (ICV) is closed and as RPM increases, it is opened a specified amount for optimum airflow.
