When a tail light bulb burns out on your Kia Sedona, you should replace it right away. Your Sedona's taillights are an important safety feature that alerts other drivers when you are stopping, turning or backing up. The Sedona tail light assembly pulls out in one piece for you to access the bulbs from behind. Purchase a replacement bulb from an auto parts store or Kia dealership.
